Great Coffee Without Geekery

Oh, come on! You don’t have to go through all this for a great cup of coffee.

All you have to do is visit the Mystic Monks.

I think I’ll grab a bag of the great-tasting ’09 Christmas Blend while it’s still available. And, you know, a bag of Jingle Bell Java, which won’t be available again until Easter, when it turns up as “Pasha Java.”

Hey, self-sacrifice is a good and noble thing. But it’s cold out there, and I can’t get warm!

    French press all the way! :-)

    That ‘how to’ tape is a joke.

    [Yes, I know it's a joke; I never miss a chance to plug the monk's coffee, which is serious coffee business! :-) -admin]

    Alright, alright… geez, I had been thinking of ordering stuff for March and April birthdays and I was going to hold off until it got closer, but you made me feel guilty about holding out on the religious when they need orders now to pay for their heating costs. Now I just need to store the stuff when I get it, somewhere where I wont see it and be tempted into using it.

    [ROFL! I'm sure the monks will appreciate the purchase. Me too! Put the coffee bags in ziplocks, press out all the air and freeze it! -admin]

    The Christmas blend is pretty good. I got some for the gang attending Fr. Neuhaus’ memorial Mass.

    [Really? I think I sent it to them! ;-) admin]

    It’s so much easier to order from the Monks!!

    I finally broke down before Christmas and ordered coffee from the Monks……you are right, it’s got to be some of the best coffee I have ever had. Just ordered more Jingle Bell Java over the weekend to carry me over until Easter. Only wish I had taken your recommendation sooner!

    As I always say on these occasions- coffee is all very well & good, but they have a long way to go before they can knock the distillers of Chartreuse from the perch of best food-related monks :)

    They reckon it’s a real grueller this time- I’ve seen this picture around, don’t know if there is an American equivalent.

    It’s much easier to just order from the Monks!

    I finally got around to ordering some Mystic Monk coffee before Christmas and I have to thank you for your recommendation. Their coffee is among the best I have ever enjoyed. Love the Jingle Bell Java!

    I was walking along the canal when I saw a cat run across the ice. I was right pleased when it made its way across safely- imagine that!

    Sah-weet! The Jingle Bell Java is still available – my heart sings. The Oracle and I love this and were seriously depressed when it was gone.

    Oh joyousness!

    My daughter gave me a bag of Mystic Monk coffee for Christmas. Brewing a pot makes the house smell so good my 3 and 6 year old boys insist they want to be coffee drinkers. Right now.
