Monday Morning Grind. Actually, Monday Morning Ground with Starbucks Sumatra

I recently celebrated another birthday and one of the promises I made to myself was do things differently.  Sometimes.  Just change it up and step outside of my comfort zone. 

So, when I caught this Starbucks Sumatra (ground) on sale at Target this past weekend, I decided that I should break from my "self-imposed rule" of only buying coffee in beans.  

It was clear from the shelf that Target sells a lot of this stuff and there was no reason to believe that it wouldn't be fresh.  

Besides, it's one of my favorite roasts and I know it's not going to stick around the pantry for long.  I went for it and I'm glad I did.

This might not seem like such a big deal to you but for somebody like me, who tends to be a bit on the "anal" side, I think it's a step in the right direction. 

An extra "perk," the bag came with a coupon for a Starbucks Reward


  1. I definitely still go with whole bean over pre-ground coffee, but sometimes you just can't beat a sale and an extra star!

    1. I know, right?! A sale, a star and really fresh ground coffee! Winning. :)
