#buongiornoamerica: Lavazza Coffee

Can we take a moment and talk about one of my serious addictions? Coffee. I'm not on a "pot a day" level, but I sure do appreciate a cup of coffee, hot or cold. So when I was contacted and asked if I wanted to participate in a Lavazza campaign, I jumped right in and said yes. Ironically, I was drinking coffee when I read the email. It was meant to be, I'd say!

They overnighted the package to me, so it made for a fun Thanksgiving Day for me. Can I just say how much I hate customs charges? Ugh, it hurt handing over the credit card. But only for a moment. It was like Christmas morning digging into the giant box of goodies!

^ Everything spread out. Fun fact- "buongiorno" was the first Italian word I learned years ago.

^ It's the little things, but this personalized poster made me so excited. They put thought into this and it showed. I can't wait to frame this and put it in my hobby/office room.

^ A Keurig Mini Plus Brewer. This brews a cup so fast! I can have my coffee and a hot chocolate for my husband done within five minutes. He doesn't like coffee, so more for me and guests who stop by! This Keurig was super easy to set up and start using and takes up very little room on my countertop.

^ They sent me four varieties to try: Classico, Gran Aroma, Perfetto, and Gran Selezione. So good. I gave my MIL a few of the Gran Selezione cups to try and she loved them. She hates when coffee gives a bitter aftertaste and did not experience that with these. I think my favorite so far is the Gran Aroma.

^ All of those fingerprints. It gives away my obsession, because I can't put this thing down. Another fun fact- I have idiot moments. I would not have known this was a tablet in an alarm clock stand had mine not been shipped upside down. I was trying to figure out how to fix it when the magnetic lid popped right off and there it was in all of its glory. I just thought it was a super fancy alarm clock. Never said I was the brightest crayon in the box, but I might just be the happiest. This Nexus 7 (2013) is amazing! It came preloaded with a Lavazza alarm clock app, which I will talk about in tomorrow's post.

^ What coffee lover can say no to a good brew? I chose Gran Aroma for this one, with a pack of raw sugar, and a dash of vanilla creamer. Now that's a great start to my morning!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post for further reviews on my experience and something special (*cough* holiday giveaway *cough cough*).

What an awesome press package!! Sucks that you had to pay customs though :(

Oh Kerri, it hurt. 84 stinkin' dollars. The pain, the agony. They gauge us, don't they? But considering what was in the box, it felt like an early Christmas! :)

The confusion with the tablet/clock sounds like something that would have happened to me, haha. This is a pretty sweet haul! As a fellow coffee addict I'm a bit jealous. :)
