Do you ever make a cup of iced coffee, add ice and by the time you get halfway down the cup, it's basically murky water and cream? It's never fun to take the time to make delicious cold brew and have it ruined by melting ice cubes. However, I also really love ice and have a tendency to load any glass I have with ice. So, I decided to try to make some coffee ice cubes and well, something tells me I'll be doing that alllll summer long!
Fall is here and if you’re anything like me, you’re already trying to insert pumpkin and caramel into everything you consume. Thankfully, Crooks + ...
A few weeks ago, I had to pleasure of not only meeting Crooks and Coffee owner, Dianna Chandler, but also getting a peek at the roasting process that goes into our favorite coffees! So, today, I'm going to show you a quick peek at what we learned and saw!

This year, we decided to go all out and make a summer bucket list. We usually have a loose one that we go off of in our heads, but this year, we decided to make something a little more formal so we wouldn’t as easily brush things off that we wanted to do. Now, we have a list that we can check off and add to as the summer goes on. So I wanted to bring ya’ll a few tips and ideas to get your own minds reeling for summer!
So, I decided to try to make our own popsicles! I still had one packet of Pink Lemonade left from the Crooks + Coffee Lemonade and Tea Taster Pack, so I decided to see what I could come up with that. This simple recipe resulted in a creamy yogurt popsicle that both I and the two five-year-olds who were in my house enjoyed.
If there's a single drink that conveys summer, I am almost positive that has to be lemonade. Something about lemonade immediately gives me feelings of sunshine, laughter and fun. So, when I found out that Dianna was releasing a summer drink mix pack to the Crooks + Coffee lineup, I knew I was going to be first in line and snag mine. If you haven't checked them out yet, be sure to hop over to the Summer Drink Mix pack and check them out! Just like the taster and sampler packs, this pack ship for free (and I'm positive free shipping are two of my favorite words of all ti
Yesterday, I overheard my daughter, who is five, talking to her friend that I babysit, who is also 5. They were talking about the normal things tha...
For starters, you need a high-quality coffee. Most of the time, I use my Crooks and Coffee Columbian Whole Bean Coffee. I like using whole bean because I can prep the beans to a coarse grind. The Columbian is a great base because the rich, smooth flavor is strong and enjoyable by itself or easily mixes with many flavors for add ins. Side note: I do also use the flavored coffees that come in grounds for my cold brew. The grind that they arrive in will also work well in my cold brew press.
We've all been there. Your alarm goes off, you hit snooze and doze right back to sleep. Next thing you know, the alarm is buzzing again and you glance at the clock to realize you have exactly three minutes to get the kids out of bed, fully dressed and in the car for school. Nevermind the fact that you also need to look like an alive human in those three minutes so you can also scurry out the door and hope you can avoid getting out of the car while in the drop-off line. Replace "drop-off line" with work, meeting, whatever else. We've all been there, right? Please tell me you know this feeling because it was basically my life during the first half of this school year. And honestly, I hit a wall a little over a month ago. I was done. We were all miserable and I knew that our mornings needed a complete overhaul.
