I am a coffee freak, and I don’t care who knows it. I love everything about the stuff, from the smell to the taste to that eye-opening brightness that seeps into my veins. I love coffee culture too, the coffee houses with squashy couches where you can meet a friend to chat or just sip a creamy cappuccino and savour your thoughts. I helped pay my way through university working in a number of these kinds of places, some good, some not so good, and I became quite an accomplished barista. I could froth that milk and cream like nobody’s business!
When I started drinking coffee at the ripe old age of 14, I drank it black, just as my parents did. But the really bad coffee in my freshman dorm quickly cured me of that. It was absolutely unpalatable unless I added cream, and from then on I was hooked on that creamy coffee flavour. Coffee and cream in my morning imperative and I can’t function properly without it. And I don’t care who knows it.
Which is why this fun campaign from Organic Valley made me smile. “The world’s best coffee…just add coffee”. I totally get that. The coffee matters, of course. But what you put in your coffee really matters too. I’ve been an Organic Valley fan for a long time and we keep a variety of their products in our fridge, many of which can be added to coffee (or vice versa). I’m an equal opportunity creamer: I love the heavy cream in my coffee but also enjoy the half and half. Sometimes I even do the bulletproof coffee with a chunk of their cultured butter. My husband prefers the half and half, as do the kids when they want some. So I got quite a giggle that Organic Valley actually opened a coffee house in Manhattan that serves half and half…with a side of coffee. Watch real Organic Valley farmer Gerrit van Tol confuse the heck out New Yorkers expecting a big cup of coffee with the cream on the side.
I love Organic Valley creams and butters because it is just what it’s supposed to be: real cream, real milk, nothing else, from cows that are pastured. When I am away from home and drinking other cream, I can taste the difference. I truly can. I also love the Organic Valley mission, being a farmer-owned cooperative with a focus on sustainability. So I am delighted to be giving away a fun coffee gift basket on their behalf so that you can make your own World’s Best Cup of Coffee. The basket will include:
- Organic Valley Half & Half
- A French press
- Coffee beans (from Marley Coffee) <—- this is actually great coffee, I’ve had it a few times!
- A travel mug
- Organic Valley coupons
Many thanks to Organic Valley for helping me bring you this delicious giveaway!
