Coffee in a teabag: New Kings Coffee

AD | GIFTED The people at New King's Coffee were kind enough to gift me boxes of their coffee bags. I love coffee but I'm also very concerned about the environment, and New King's Coffee is a beautiful combination of both. Coffee in a tea bag is the most convenient thing ever, I don't have… Continue reading Coffee in a teabag: New Kings Coffee

Bucket List: Badger & Dodo Cafe, Galway

Badger and Dodo is my favourite coffee ever, and although they're based in Cork, they have a cafe in Galway I've wanted to visit since finding out about it.

DIY Vegan Peppermint Mocha

The Starbuck's Peppermint Mocha is the Pumpkin Spice Latte of Christmas. I've mentioned before how I don't like Starbucks. It tastes way better in America than it does here because companies adapt their products to local tastes, and American's obviously like better coffee than us Irish do. I've never actually had a real peppermint mocha,… Continue reading DIY Vegan Peppermint Mocha

Shakespeare and Company is a quaint independent bookstore in Paris, tucked right underneath the shadow of Notre Dame.

Bucket List: Trying Deathwish Coffee

I've been obsessed with Deathwish coffee since I first heard of it, which I'd imagine was around the same time as my Coffee Quest post which was back in 2015 so of course, it earned a spot on my bucket list. Deathwish markets itself as the strongest coffee in the world, and I took that… Continue reading Bucket List: Trying Deathwish Coffee

Simple Homemade Iced Coffee

With the sun out in full force this summer, I need a cold drink to cool down, and sometimes it's nice to have something that's not water. Cafes make a lot of money from ice-coffees, and frappes, and other cold beverages all summer, but they can be very pricey or not to your liking. Sometimes… Continue reading Simple Homemade Iced Coffee

The best coffee & way to enjoy it sustainably

I've already talked about the best and worst coffee in college  and the best and worst coffee of my life but I've never talked about the coffees (yes plural) I drink at home. To be blunt, Limerick isn't great for coffee, America had the some of the best coffee I've ever had, even Cork had great coffee,… Continue reading The best coffee & way to enjoy it sustainably

Bucket List: Kona Coffee

I have to go to Hawaii at some point in my life, I want to see the Marrie Monarch festival, a luao, and of course - try Kona coffee. I'm adamant that I will get to Hawaii one day, but that day is not in the foreseeable future for the time being. I took to… Continue reading Bucket List: Kona Coffee

Bucket List: Tim Hortons

Another thing I got to tick off my Bucket List when I was in America was going to a Tim Horton's cafe - which I… Continue reading Bucket List: Tim Hortons
