Trader Joe's French Roast Coffee Cups


Disclaimer #1: Before you read this post, watch this.  I just got back recently from a trip to San Francisco where environmentalism is very much embedded in everyday living. I even spotted a billboard downtown condemning the use of K-cups (something about there's barely enough land for your deceased grandmother much less k-cups). 

Anyhoo, I don't have much to say about this, other than the fact that I ironically purchased this on Earth Day. Most people celebrate Earth Day by recycling or planting a tree. I bought K-cups. It was for work. *shrug*

Disclaimer #2: Apparently these particular K-cups are recyclable. I haven't tried it because my workplace recycling is not exactly up to SF standards. *shrug* 




$4.99 for 12 cups! That's $0.41 per cup! Better coffee and cheaper than the coffee cart downstairs. Have to justify my purchase somehow. :P 


Unlike most k-cups, these are transparent so you can actually visualize the coffee grounds before you brew them. Although it says dark roast, it tastes more like a medium-dark roast to me. Very similar to the French Vanilla (minus the vanilla obviously), decently smooth, and overall gets the job done. Drinkable black.  One of the attending MDs took my last one because it was so good. All you doctors out there, be nice to your nurses, especially if they caffeinate you. 

TL;DR: Trader Joe's French Roast Coffee Cups. Standard good coffee. PSA: If you buy this, please recycle. 7 out of 10.

Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea

Dear reader, you may notice in the coming days that there are changes coming to this blog. Not nearly as dramatic, controversial, or dlfjepotigfjad;lkgjadsf (for my readers not as fluent in internet speak, that was a keyboard pound of frustration) as say, the government, but changes nonetheless. Mostly because there is coming a day where I will not live within a stone's throw of a Trader Joe's store. A sad sad day. But probably a good day for my wallet. :P 

Trader Joe's Sliced French Brioche

"THIS IS LIKE CRACK." No it's not (but it certainly could be), but A says that's how I tend to overhype stuff. The funny thing is that I know I overhype a lot of things, so I actually try not to overhype it. Because I don't want to proclaim, "THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER TASTED" about everything I try. But sometimes I can't help it, and the overhype spills out. Anyway, this is my meager attempt at NOT overhyping this bread (because it is pretty good actually and you should give it a try but I'm trying to restrain myself). 

Trader Joe's Umami and Ginger Paste

I'm a big fan of the condiment section at TJ's, not because everything is ridiculously good but you can really find some hidden gems and get a good bang for your buck. ;D 
I cannot vouch for all of the spices and condiments - like salt, soy sauce, sriracha (no I haven't tried TJ's brand sriracha) I would buy elsewhere. However, because most of the spices have the same $1.99 flat price, you can get decent deals on things like curry powder, turmeric, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon sticks, and ground ginger.
