I’m a member of Bzzagent.com. Which makes me, a bzzagent. There are so many perks to being a bzzagent. Number 1 is getting to try new products for free. My latest product: Starbuck’s Pike’s Place Roast ground coffee.
As any coffee lover might agree the scent of a freshly opened package of coffee is enough to wake you up sometimes. The Scent of Starbuck’s Pike Place Roast is no different. I have to admit, I’m not an avid Starbuck’s coffee drinker but I do treat myself every now and then. This Pike’s Place Roast however, may make me indulge a little more often. It has a very smooth flavor. Great by itself or with your favorite creamer. ( I did try it both ways.) I was reading the package and Pike’s Place Roast is in reference to Starbucks first store site in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. I did not know that.
As a freebie addict I also notice on the bag “Bring your empty bag (from the coffee) we’ll give you a coffee. When this bag is out of coffee, exchange it for a tall brewed coffee (12 fl oz) on us.” So there’s my next Starbucks trip. Yay!
I also received a small bag of Caffe Verona ground coffee in my bzzkit. This one is bolder. In my opinion not as smooth as the Pike Place Roast. The description of the Caffe Verona reads: “Inspired by Italian passion for wonderful food and coffee, this rich, well-balanced blend has a dark cocoa texture and a roasty sweetness, like the flavor of fire-roasted marshmallows after you pull off the darkened cap.” boy do they know how to make you want to drink coffee.
