What I'm Drinking This Morning: Donut Shop Peppermint Bark Holiday Coffee

Brewed at the 6 oz. setting, it's hot, strong and minty enough to not only taste delicious sipping, but the tiny burst of mint that stays in my mouth after the coffee is gone is enjoyable.  If you brew it strong and add a bit of sweetener and milk or foamy froth you've got a great little peppermint latte going on.  Another option to sweeten a touch and enhance the flavor of the peppermint is to add a splash of your favorite brand of peppermint flavored syrups; I prefer the sugar free variety.

Yesterday I had to run to the store for a few groceries and passed the k-cup display where this peppermint coffee jumped out at me and caught my attention.

Wait... Christmas coffee?  Already?  But it's only... July.
No it isn't.

I may feel like it's still July but the calendar says it's mid-November.

Christmas is right around the corner, and although we have a burst of 'warm' weather right now, cold, winter weather is right around the corner too... and it's the only time of year when I enjoy a flavored coffee.  My body starts to crave peppermint coffee and I know Christmas is close.

And my body was sure craving peppermint flavored coffee yesterday!

Into my cart the box of k-cups went.  Even though it wasn't in the budget. I walked past it once, got to the other side of the store, couldn't stop thinking about it so I went back and grabbed one.

Two cups last night and getting ready to brew a second one this morning.
