Nerd Fuel: Cafe’ Bustelo – Espresso Style

Today, I’m going to share my thoughts on a coffee that I’ve been eyeing for some time; Cafe Bustelo. This distinct yellow box caught my eye the very first time I saw it on the grocery store shelf, but I was always a little hesitant to try something so obscure. Finally, I decided to take […]

Nerd Fuel: Krispy Kreme – Smooth

The first Nerd Fuel post of 2018 is here! As you know, one of my favorite types of coffee is what is known as “Donut Shop” coffee. Donut Shop style coffee is a basic, middle-of-the-road brew. It’s designed to please everybody. There’s nothing particularly special about it… But, it’s a bit a comfort food for […]

I know I should be strictly reviewing “Christmas themed” coffees this time of year. But here is a find that was too unique for me to pass up. I found this on aisle of my local grocery store. It was a brand I’ve never heard of before, and after a little research, I learned it’s […]

Nerd Fuel: Starbuck’s – Toasted Graham

Ok. I’m going to give Starbucks’ a chance to redeem themselves. While I was not a big  fan of their Pumpkin Spice Cafe Latte, I did enjoy their 2017 Fall Blend, and  last year’s Holiday Blonde Roast was simply amazing. For this review, I picked up a box of their new Toasted Graham coffee. Let’s […]

Nerd Fuel: Starbucks – Pumpkin Spice Caffe’ Latte

For this Nerd Fuel post, I’m going to break my tradition of reviewing standard coffee pods and take a look at one of those gimmicky “cafe latte combo packs”. Being very much a purist, I’ve been hesitant to pay much attention to these things. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, aside from […]

Nerd Fuel: Starbucks – Fall Blend (2017)

Fall is here! For me, that means pumpkin scented candles and spooky video games. Last year, I reviewed a couple different Pumpkin flavored coffees so I’ve decided to change things up this time and focus on a simple Autumn blend. It just so happens I found exactly what I was looking for as soon as […]
