Cuppa Jane Coffees, purveyors of fine brews, cocoas and teas, and their blends sounded great. They sent me a sampler of three of their seasonal blends, Candy Cane, Pumpkin Harvest, and Cinnamon Sugar Cookie.
Pumpkin Harvest whole bean coffee, since it seems so fitting for October. It's a nice blend of spices that enhance sweets like apple cakes and the like. It's also a good stand-in dessert, when you're trying to watch calories but still want a sweet ending to a meal.
The peppermint-flavored Candy Cane is also quite good, and I imagine we'll be drinking the bulk of it closer to the winter holidays. The Candy Cane blend reminds me of a holiday drink that you can get at Starbucks--but without the hefty price tag.
Cinnamon Sugar Cookie. While not bad, I must say it wasn't my favorite. I tend to prefer plain cinnamons or peppermints rather than flavors that try to mimic desserts. But that's just my taste buds, maybe not yours.
Cuppa Jane coffees are worth treating yourself to, whether you're a coffee snob like me, or just like a nice cup once in a while.
