When we wake up in the morning, it takes a while. A long while. We often greet the day with a single finger rather than a smile. And we’re not cranky by nature. It’s just so hard to leave our luxurious love mound and its 13,000 thread count sheets. So when we finally stumble to the kitchen, we need caffeine and we need it fast.
Our delivery method used to be gigantic glasses of Dr Pepper or iced tea. But now that we’re old enough to vote, we like a good cup of coffee – emphasis on “good.” Last week we received a care package of delicious coffee from Aspire Coffeeworks that’s good on so many levels.
First of all, the coffee was roasted just two days before it showed up on at our house. The smell of rich, earthy coffee beans was simply incredible as we opened up the box. Inside were all three varieties of Aspire Coffees and we love them all. Our favorite, though, is easily the Aspire Bold Roast because of its low acidity and full flavor.
But wait, it gets better. 100% of Aspire’s net proceeds go directly to their life-changing programs for people with disabilities like cerebral palsy, autism or Down syndrome. Early intervention programs for infants and toddlers, as well as programs and services for adults, all help make a world of difference to the lives of each individual.
And all we have to do is buy their coffee? Seems like a no-brainer to us.
For comparison, a pound of Aspire coffee is just $12.95 and it’s certified Fair Trade and organic, to boot. Over at Starbucks, we could only find either Fair Trade or organic (not both in one blend) for $10.95/pound or $11.95/pound, respectively. So for just a buck or two more, you get both feel-great factors in one pound of coffee, help those with disabilities, and get a super-charged, super-flavorful start to your day?
It’s almost too good to be true. Just like an extra hour of sleep every night.
