One of the things I love about the holiday season is that it's a time of indulgence. We indulge in one too many cookies, an extra glass of eggnog, or just one more bite of apple pie. On a recent trip to Germany for Thanksgiving, I indulged in doing absolutely no work and drank roughly my own weight in Gluhwein.
It was awesome. But now that I am home, it's time to catch up on work and get crackin' on the holiday stuff: namely, my Christmas shopping list and catching up with my friends and family.
It's the time of year we find it easy to splurge the ones we love, working hard to grant their holiday wishes. It's also the time of year we indulge ourselves, give ourselves the go ahead to ask for the one thing we really want this year. But it's also about the little indulgences. It's counting down the days to Christmas with little chocolate advent calendars and sipping on a cup of freshly brewed coffee while I holiday shop from the comfort of my couch...or invite my girlfriends over for a cup of coffee and a snack in the comfort of my home, where we can avoid the long lines and high prices at our local coffee shop.
You guys know what I'm talking about...that little green monster that sits in every shopping center - no one likes that coffee, but it seems that it's always the place we choose as our meeting point! Well, no more! I brought back a ton of my fancy German Christmas Market mugs and they're going to be put to good use this holiday season - they're going to be filled with Folgers Gourmet Selections coffee!
To be honest, I actually indulge in coffee year round and multiple times a day. I typically drink iced coffee with unsweetened almond milk, as I follow a pretty low carb diet and don't use sugar or fancy creamers in my iced coffee. My coffee needs to taste GOOD because that's all I taste when I take a sip. I love all of the specialty flavors that come out around the holidays and apparently I'm not alone!
I've been sipping Folgers Gourmet Selections and they seem to take my coffee breaks to a new level of indulgence. There is something about gourmet coffee that makes it that much more decadent. Factor in the delicious roast and flavors they offer, like Vanilla Biscotti or Mocha Swirl flavor and my online shopping from the comfort of my couch seems to take on a more luxurious appeal! Who needs a busy mall coffee shop when you can sit in your plush robe and sip tasty gourmet coffee at home?

Talk about a range of flavors, there seems to be something for every mood and every type of coffee drinker, no need to choose between bagged ground coffee or K-Cup pods. Although I tend to be on the side of K-Cup pods because they're just less work - and I'm all about indulging right? K-Cups come in 12 ct and 18ct boxes while each packed bag is 10oz. The Vanilla Biscotti is my favorite so far, it's like all the tastiness of a sweet treat without the pesky carbs. Yum!
