For Christmas my boyfriend got me something that I had been eyeing for months. Since I haven’t had a job for a while, I could not justify purchasing this item. So what did I do instead? I payed it a visit every time I took a trip to Target. Lame. I know. What am I talking about? A coffee press.
I have used it so many times since I open the gift wrap and squeaked, as he says I tend to do. I’ve brewed a few kinds of coffee in it. They’ve all been pretty good. However, I had my eye on a certain kind…Godiva Coffee!
Yes, Godiva sells coffee now. It’s a little on the pricey side for me–about $14 for 12 ounces of ground coffee. But yesterday, the coffee gods smiled upon me. My boyfriend and I were pursuing the coffee aisle at Target. I was hoping to find a good deal on coffee, but everything was pretty much priced regularly. Except for the Holiday flavors that did seem so tasty. I was checking out the Starbucks Coffee that I’ve never brewed at home. My eyes were drawn to a certain part of the shelf. It didn’t look like a Starbucks Coffee bag, so what was it? It was Godiva Chocolate Truffle Coffee!
I picked up the tightly packed bag of coffee and was ecstatic! Yes, delicious-sounding coffee makes me ecstatic. I know, I’m weird, but that’s besides the point. Back to the topic at hand…so I took the coffee to the price scanner expecting to see $14 to pop up on the screen. Instead, I saw $7.99 on the screen! It was meant to be! Yes, I got a little excited over coffee. I know.
So what am I doing right now instead of trying it? I am writing this blog. I am going to wrap this up here to go brew a cup.
What’s the moral of this story? Ummm, the coffee gods will someday smile upon you as well?
It’s coffee time!
