Mmmm Coffee Beans, Larry’s Beans *Review*

Larry BeansI may not be a coffee fan but the smell of GOOD beans still draws me in. The cheap stuff smells something akin to…well, if we’re being honest – dog poop, but good beans, well they smell warm and inviting and almost as though I could drink a cup of warm milky coffee myself, but I don’t.

Only 6 days ago I found out that I had won One 2 Try’s contest on her blog for 1lb of coffee beans from Larry’s Beans, one Larry’s Beans mug and some extra pamphlets (the coffee mark is part of the design, I found this out after asking Buzz what he did to it before I’d even taken a picture – oops, sorry hon!) I was still surprised that I had won even though Buzz had begged me to get as many entries as possible for this contest so that I tweeted every single day! Hey, the man loves his Larry’s Beans!

Rita was extremely speedy in her shipping (this is the SECOND awesome prize I’ve won from her blog by the way, I highly recommend giving her a visit!), and the beans arrived late in the afternoon yesterday! I saw Buzz’s face light up like a Christmas tree as he stared at the MASSIVE bag of beans, one whole pound…okay so it’ll probably last Buzz two days but it’s worth it to have that deep rich aroma floating around the house constantly.

Being that I don’t drink coffee I can only tell you how much my other half LOVES these beans. Lately we’ve been making more of an effort to compliment each other and recognize niceties that have, for years, gone unnoticed (after 8 1/2 years together it’s easy to let things slip). Last night as I lay in bed with my laptop listening to the TV and the faint overtones of Buzz tapping on his keyboard from his adjacent office, my instant messenger flashed up “Thanks for winning me that coffee, I REALLY love Larry’s Beans you know.” The message made me laugh, not because it was an instant message from across the hallway – this is a usual occurrence in our house because between his mumbling and my voluntary deafness things get misconstrued, but it made me laugh because he said it like I consciously made the choice to win the contest. It was appreciated either way and I think it shows just how much my man loves his beans!

I would be remiss to overlook the gorgeous mug too, it is the cutest thing you have ever seen. Made to resemble those old cowboy tin mugs this one is ceramic (and came exceptionally well wrapped, thanks Rita!) and definitely steal worthy – it’s only fair that I get the mug when Buzz got the coffee right?

If you are a coffee drinker I urge you to give Larry’s Bean’s a try – you can usually find them in Whole Foods but if not you can definitely order them online! If you are like me and aren’t a coffee drinker but live with someone who is then grab them a bag because not only will they love you forever but you will absolutely LOVE the smell of these beans!

A huge thanks to Rita over at One 2 Try for running a great contest which provided me with these amazing beans and a huge thanks also to Larry’s Beans for providing Rita with the beans to give away!

    I totally agree. I love the smell of savory coffee beans even though I’m not a big coffee drinker. Sometimes they brew fresh coffee at work and I pour a little just to get a good whiff. mm 🙂
