Summer is winding down (in months, not heat), and we’re already sad to see it go. But it isn’t over yet, and a morning mini-vacation to the islands is definitely in order! That’s why Wolfgang Puck Jamaica Me Crazy is What We’re Drinking Wednesday!
So maybe you aren’t really on a vacation, but in your breakroom, or kitchen. And maybe you aren’t on a tropical beach soaking up the sun. That’s okay! The lid on this k-cup does well to make you feel like you aren’t under the fluorescent lighting of your cube.
Though it isn’t mentioned anywhere on the packaging, this Wolfgang Puck K Cup has a yummy coconut flavor (and you can get it year round unlike the Green Mountain version). There are also hints of cinnamon that really make this cup pop if you want to drink it black.
This is a medium body coffee, and just light enough to be enjoyed by everyone. Wanna give it a try? Get some here!

With the exception of the struggle to get into my jeans this morning, and the chocolate hangover, I have to say the Fancy Food Show in Washington D.C. was a delectable experience.
Putting aside Beltway policies for pasta, debt ceilings for dijon, and recession for ricotta, the entire event was an odyssey of setting aside the staid and embracing the au courant.
New visions and new versions of food; untested, out of the box; remixed and anything but boring.
I saw seas of spices, oceans of olive oil, and bays of brie. “Gluten Free” is the new “Low Fat” and real cane sugar is back (sometimes everything old is new again).
We used to just drink coffee, now we can slather it on our ribs, sprinkle it on our ice cream or marinade our chicken in a Java sauce. I found hard candy that mimics perfectly the taste of espresso, and tea candy that tastes like a green tea latte.
One common thread between the myriad of booths was that many companies set aside a certain percent of their profits to give back to their home communities, or national organizations that promote green energies and promote environmental sustainability.
At Alpine Valley we find these values to be important criteria in the choice of the products we present. We attempt to find family owned companies who feel responsible to their employees, and their communities, as well as the rest of the planet.
We think you will notice that our new product choices will have these qualities in common. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve found!

Though we here at Alpine Valley pride ourselves on valuing health and wellness, sometimes, we want something unabashedly sweet and filling in the morning. Instead of running to the closest bakery and scarfing a down the baker’s dozen, we opt for this rich, bold, mildly sweet blend—That’s why Coffee People Original Donut Shop Blend is What We’re Drinking Wednesday!
Not only is the packaging on this k-cup totally sweet, the contents are absolutely phenomenal. Not at all bitter, but not weak, this coffee is great alone or complimenting a delicious (dare we say it) donut! This k-cup is one of our biggest sellers to date, and we know you won’t regret trying some! Get it HERE! http://www.alpinevalleycoffee.com/coffee-people-donut-shop-coffee-24-pack-p-126.html

Here at Alpine Valley Headquarters, we’re still reeling from the beautiful July 4th 3-day weekend madness of barbecues, fireworks, and Americana. Though we love America and everything it has to offer, this morning, we were craving something a little more…European. That’s why Diedrich French Roast is What We’re Drinking Wednesday!
Can we just take a moment to look at how adorable the packaging is for this Green Mountain K Cup? It goes beyond the standard k-cup lid and spices up our morning with a little “Can-Can” action, and there’s nothing wrong with that!
According to the Green Mountain description: This dark roast coffee has a toasty aroma and crisp molasses flavor. It is not for the faint of heart. This description couldn’t be more right! After sipping this musky thick flavor, our senses were teleported to a frosty winter Parisian landscape filled with lights, and inspired architecture in the 1890s. Okay, that may be an exaggeration, but we really do love this coffee, and think you will to! Get some here:www.alpinevalleycoffee.com/diedrich-french-roast-24-pack-…
