Who doesn’t need a good cup of joe to kick start their day? My husband & I can’t function without one everyday. I like mine strong where he likes his mild. Since we are such big coffee drinkers, I am always looking for different variations to try out. We recently tested out the new Eight O’Clock blends.
Infusions Alert is a premium full-bodied 100% Arabica coffee that is medium roasted for a full-bodied bold, robust flavor. Gently blended with caffeine and guarana, ALERT offers consumers a way to brighten their day with a hi-caffeine blend. Guarana is rich in caffeine and is a popular ingredient in energy drinks and teas. Of course this was my favorite! It gave me that extra punch that I needed for my full days at work then home. I was good with one cup for the day.
Infusions Relax is a premium, medium-bodied, decaffeinated 100% Arabica coffee blended with chamomile and lavender cuts. The lavender and chamomile in Relax subtly complement the taste of the coffee. Lavender and chamomile are familiar aromas and flavors associated with tranquility making. Relax the perfect coffee to enjoy when taking time out to relax. Decaf coffee seems like a waste to me. What’s the purpose? but I did taste it. It is a delicate flavor that definitely oozed relaxation. What a unique blend that I have never tasted before. I could picture myself overlooking the ocean with a cup in hand. I may have to take this with me on our next family trip.
100% Brazilian Breakfast was created for coffee drinkers whose stomachs prefer a less acidic, blend. The variety contains 100% Brazilian Arabica Coffee beans that are sourced from the Cerrado Minas Gerais region in Brazil. With a soft-bodied, less acidic cup profile, this variety is perfectly suited for multiple-cup coffee drinkers. My husband preferred this blend for it’s milder taste. Since he tends to drink multiple cups throughout the day, this was perfect for him. He doesn’t use sugar and he said this didn’t need it at all. It held its’ flavor with every cup.
Overall we love these coffees. They are an addition in our home. They don’t come in single serve cups yet so you will have to brew in a traditional coffee maker. I think it preserves the flavor more this way. Grab a blend & let me know what you think!
