** Giveaway ** There is a new coffee in town at Smart and Final

Smart and Final has introduced their own line of coffee to their stores and I am thrilled to share this news with you (There are several Smart and Final locations in San Diego County). Their new line of Ambiance Premium World Class Selections coffee is really reasonable and actually pretty good.  They offer a variety of flavors – Kona Style, Gourmet Supreme, French Roast, House Blend to name a few. I have been drinking this coffee in place of my normal brand since the beginning of the year and am really satisfied with the taste and consistency of each brew. My favorite so far is the French Roast Coffee. It has been a good change to smell freshly brewed coffee from my kitchen and the best part is there are no lines to wait in.  I have to opportunity to give one of my readers a chance to win a basket of assorted flavors of Ambiance coffee and a $150 Smart and Final Gift Certificate.

    My favorite coffee moment? If it’s not having a creme in a cafe in Paris, it’ll have to be every morning with my Tassimo maker. Mmm. Now I want coffee!

  2. Kimberly says:

    My favorite coffee moment happens every morning when the that caffeine kicks in and I start functioning like a normal person.. 🙂

  3. Heather Cox says:

    mmmmmmm coffee!!!!! my favorite coffee moments are cuddling up with a warm blanket, cup of coffee, and my kindle 🙂

  4. Coffee has been a part of my life since the 6th grade! There’s many moments but I”ll say that the first time I had ice cream on espresso was neat.

    I don’t drink coffee — but I do love Smart and Final so I am entering.

    My coffee moment: I worked next to a coffee store in college. I could see the employees through the glass all day while I worked. I would signal for them to bring me a drink (hot cocoa). There was this guy, and he would bring me a drink in the mornings.
    One day he asked me to marry him, and told me that he wanted to hold my hand in Russia as we danced all night and then watched the sunrise.
    I turned him down (I didn’t even know his name). But see, coffee makes people happy!

    My favorite coffee moment is Saturday mornings. That is when my husband and I get up early to make a fabulous pot of coffee and then spend the morning relaxing with coffee in bed and chat about the week. We don’t do much coffee during the week so this is really a treat for us both. Add working all week this is our chance to reconnect.

  44. Ann B says:

    This one is a memory from when I was a child.
    My mother had a Myna Bird.
    After hearing my brother demand his coffee everyday….the bird picked it up and when someone came into the room, the bird would say “I want my Coffee”
    It was so funny when guests would come over and not even realize who was saying this!
