Millstone Bean to Cup Coffee Journey
{KEURIG Elite Giveaway & A Cinnamon Latte}

Every day I have the same morning routine. I get out of bed, brush my teeth and make a bee line straight for the coffee pot.

My favorite part of the day is sipping that first cup of coffee and enjoying some quiet time on the computer before everyone wakes up.

I tend to be a bit grumpy in the morning until I get a cup or two of coffee in me. I have to say I never really thought about what exactly goes into making a cup of coffee.

 I found out that it takes more than technology and machines to deliver the precise flavor we have come to expect from Millstone Coffee.

 Recently Millstone launched their new virtual web experience - A Millstone Bean to Cup Journey. This is where I learned just how much work goes into my morning brew.

The journey begins in the lush mountainside of an Arabica coffee estate, where coffee trees are grown and carefully cultivated. 

Coffee beans are hand picked, roasted and then blended and tested for excellence. Only after all of that are the finally rushed to retailers.

Click on the link above and take the Bean to Cup Journey for yourself, and find out how a simple coffee bean is transformed into that perfect cup of coffee.

Do you own a Keurig Brewing System? We purchased our first one about a year and a half ago. Since then it's gotten quite the workout, so I would like to thank Millstone for the generous upgrade to the Keurig Elite.    

The Keurig system is not only great for coffee, but it's also brews the perfect iced coffee, cider, tea and hot chocolate.

Did you know that you can also make coffee house style lattes using the Keurig System?  Recently I tried a Cinnamon Latte  and a Caramel Macchiato recipe that I found on the Millstone website. 

Both recipes were easy to make and so much cheaper than if I made a mad
dash to Starbucks.
Lately I have been enjoying the Fog Lifter K- Cups. I initially thought the Fog Lifter was a strong roast, but it's more of a medium blend which is perfect for me. 

I used the K - Cup Breakfast Blend to make the Lattes mentioned above. The recipe called for 1/4 to 1/2 cup each of brewed coffee, so using the K-Cups worked out perfectly.

The Keurig Elite is so much better than the system we owned. It features chrome accents and a blue, backlit LCD display.

I love how the water chamber lights up and blinks when the water level is low.  It also has a light up indicator that lets me know exactly when it's time to brew.

The Keurig Elite offers 3 cup size choices (6 oz, 8oz and 10 oz). My old Keurig only had two choices and didn't have any of that fancy schmancy stuff listed above.

Thank you Keurig for making my morning coffee so much easier.



Millstone Cinnamon Latte

Ingredients:
1 -  cup milk
4 -  tablespoons cinnamon or vanilla flavored syrup
1/4 - cup hot, fresh strong brewed Millstone Bed & Breakfast Coffee per cup

Pour 2 tablespoon cinnamon syrup into one standard size coffee cup. Stir in hot coffee. Add steamed milk to brim of cup. Top with a swirl of whipped cream. Drizzle with caramel syrup.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve immediately. 

Recipe yields - 2 standard cups

I always thought coffee grew in a much warmer climate. I knew it grew in the mountains and I know darn well mountains are normally cooler than lower altitudes, but for some reason coffee always seemed a tropical crop ... but I learned something today. Can I go home now? :)

The fact I learned is that the beans when picked actually look like cherries almost and change color three times during their growing.
