My father and stepmother came back from Hawaii a week ago. They go to Hawaii for two weeks every year. I have never been there before. Hearing them talk about their time in “paradise” makes me wish I could crawl into their luggage and go with them on their next trip.
Today was the first time we’re seen them since they got back. It’s Easter so we went to visit them and enjoy a delicious Easter breakfast. We enjoyed waffles, fresh fruit, bacon and a German Pancake recipe that we have never had before. It was really good. I’m not sure what it was made with but I know my stepmother and stepbrother ate it topped with lemon juice and powdered sugar. I tried it that way too and it was really good. I have to learn how to make it.
It’s not breakfast without a great cup of coffee. In addition to some maple syrup I brought along some Tully’s Hawaii Blend K-cup portion packs. As an ambassador I was sent some samples free to review (there was no compensation). I thought it was only fitting to have my family try out the Tully’s Hawaiian Blend. I have already tried them out at home but I wanted to see what my father, stepmother and the others thought about it.
The Hawaiian Blend K-cup portion packs are made with 10% Hawaiian beans, as well as Arabica beans. It’s a medium roast, bold blend, just the way my father likes it.
This coffee is very flavorful. Even after adding some flavored creamer (Fat Free Vanilla coffee creamer) I still found the blend to be a wee bit strong for my taste. What I did to compensate for that is to set my Keurig for a larger cup. The extra water helps to smooth it out a bit so it’s not as strong.
My father LOVES dark, rich roasts so he went crazy for this coffee. He said it reminded him of the Hawaiian Kona coffee that he has when they are out in Hawaii. In fact he had two cups.
I’m glad that I was sent plent of samples so I was able to leave some for my father and stepmother to enjoy when we were gone.
