When I announced the good news the other day — no, not that Good News, but the other good news that assists in our salvation, the re-emergence of Jingle Bell Java into our universe — someone noticed that I neglected to include my usual rave for Mystic Monk Hazelnut Coffee. They wondered if I’d soured on it.
Good heavens, no! The Hazelnut (and the Rum Pecan) are late-night decaf staples around here — great relaxants at the end of a long day! It’s all good stuff.
But during the day — the runaround day requiring caffeine and mobility — this has become my new favorite gizmo of the world: The Mystic Monk Travel Press!. I this thing because it has a “storage” area in the base, where you can store grinds for a second cup of coffee!
It’s sort of decadent but not excessive, you know? A little treat! I gave one to a family member for her birthday and I think she would marry it, if she could.
Sort of a thoughtful little addition to a Christmas gift package, too!
