Like a lot of you, I need a cup of coffee in the morning to get started.
My mornings almost always start out with me crawling out of bed and putting on the clothes from yesterday so I can take Milo for a quick walk. As soon as we come back, he gets a meal and I start a pot of coffee.
I’ve tried a lot of coffee brands over the years, so when I heard about an opportunity to sample 4 flavors of Rogers Coffee, I jumped at the chance. Who doesn’t like free stuff…and 4 bags of coffee could get me through a lot of mornings.
Then I watched this video about the company. About how Rogers Coffee is changing the lives of the small coffee farmers in impoverished coffee growing regions.
And I was even more excited to be able to try their coffee and offer my readers a chance to get 4 bags of coffee to try too. Enter the giveaway at the bottom of this article!
This company even went to the trouble to figure out how to make their one-cup dispensers for the new popular Keurig machines biodegradable.
It’s really important to me that I support companies that are good for the environment and socially responsible.
But let’s be honest. While I want to make purchases from socially responsible companies, I also expect a quality product. With coffee, that means a great tasting cup of coffee.
Rogers Coffee delivers. I’m not sure if it is because they only use Aribica coffee beans which offer better flavor and half the caffeine than the cheaper Robusta beans. Or maybe the fact that the use only shade grown beans has an impact.
Whatever it is, I really liked all 4 flavors of the Rogers Coffee line of Fairwinds Coffee I received.
If I have to pick, I think I liked the French Roast the best with the French Vanilla a close second. This actually surprised me, because I’m a big fan of Hazelnut coffee. And while I did really like the Hazelnut flavor, the other two were pretty amazing.
But honestly, I could be happy with any of these 4 coffee flavors as my everyday coffee.
When I opened up the first bag, I was pleased to see that the coffee was so fresh that it still had the oil from roasting on the beans.
I started by cleaning out my coffee grinder well so there wouldn’t be any remnants of the old coffee in it. I added enough beans to my coffee grinder for 3-4 days so I could really experience each flavor before going on to the next.
Yes, I drink my coffee black. No cream, no sugar for me.
Rogers Coffee offers 6 lines of coffee and tea including ground coffee, kosher coffee, organic coffee, single serving coffee cups and trial sizes.
