Nothing beats relaxing with a good book and your favorite cup o’ joe. For coffee connoisseurs, the joy of testing new brews is equivalent to the wine taster’s experience. This is the great pleasure I’ve been having lately with the Grounds for Change Songbird Gift Box. Grounds for Change is a unique coffee company; all of their coffee is organic and fair trade, and they roast to order and ship fresh daily. That means really fresh coffee!
Grounds for Change is giving away one Songbird Gift Box to one of you! Their Songbird coffees aren’t just your average bean. These days when coffee is grown, the fields are clearcut and the beans are grown in full sun. But the coffee shrub is a shade-loving plant. After scientific tweaking, coffee was developed to handle full sun. But truth be told, nothing is better than coffee grown as coffee should be – in the shade, surrounded by a wide variety of trees. These coffee farms, second in biodiversity only to the rainforest, quickly become the home to a wide variety of animals, including migratory birds whose songs surround the farms. Hence, the Songbird coffees of Grounds for Change.
But are they good? I’m telling you, I’ve not enjoyed coffee so fresh and wonderful in a long time. Peru “Cafe Femenino”, Agate Pass Blend, and Bolivia “Los Yungas” have been in my mug every morning for the past week, and every cup has been a pleasure. I love to prepare cappuccino, and in my opinion that can’t be done properly without a full wonderful coffee that lacks bitterness. All three of the Grounds for Change flavors have been smooth and delicious, perfect for cappuccino.
Now that you’re jonesing for joe, it’s your turn to enter to win! The Songbird Gift Box includes the following:
- Three 8 ounce bags of Fair Trade Organic coffee (Regular or Decaf; Ground or Whole Bean; Coffee Varieties Your Choice)
