I am a huge coffee lover, but I think that's obvious enough, right? What's even better (for me) is that Michael is also a very involved coffee drinker. When we first started hanging out, he would always take me out to coffee at Starbucks and that's how our friendship first became kindled. I am a firm believer that coffee is the most relational beverage there is. A special connection happens between people when sharing a nice, warm cup of coffee together.
Michael and I have grown so much together and many of those moments were over coffee (we basically have coffee every day together). An hour before Michael proposed to me last November, we had stopped and grabbed a coffee before our way out to the lake.
Coffee just knows how to set the mood.
Michael and I enjoy trying out different brewing methods, as we love our french press and Chemex (pour-over). Our quiet times with the Lord often features our Bibles in one hand and coffee in the other. So when the opportunity arose to try out Five Star Coffee's Romantic Moments Collection sampler package, I was beyond thrilled and just had to say yes. And I am so glad that I did!
The Romantic Moments Collection came with four 12-cup sampler bags of coffee - Cinnamon Stick, Hazelnut Creme, Georgia Pecan, and English Toffee. They were all fantastic, but Cinnamon Stick was my favorite, and since Michael is naturally a hazelnut kind of person, his favorite was the Hazelnut Creme. They all smell absolutely delicious and even more so when being brewed. I loved that the flavor of the coffee wasn't overpowering and that it was the perfect hint that was needed.
What I truly loved about this collection is that each bag of coffee came with a scripture verse about love on the front and a devotional for couples on the back. Five Star Coffee has done an incredible job combining quality time, coffee and Jesus to make moments with your significant other more intimate and intentional.
As Michael and I are quickly approaching marriage, we are truly cherishing this time preparing and focusing on Biblical love. The Romantics Collection has helped us stay centered on what really sustains a relationship - keeping God the center of it all.
