In Ireland we love our coffee so why not embrace an instant way to inject more festive feeling into your day by going for a Christmas blend.
Those velvety notes of spice and all things nice will get even the grumpiest grumps – and no judgement if you are not a morning person! – into the Christmas spirit.
With a survey from University College Cork a few years ago finding that seven in ten Irish adults are guzzling more than one cup of coffee a day our “make your own” Christmas Coffee blend hack below may come in useful for many.
Or you could pick up a bag pre-infused. We are just loving the new Christmas blend from Brady’s coffee from Lidl. It wafts a gorgeous smell around the kitchen as well as warming the soul.
The same survey showed that one in three splash out on buying at least one coffee a day so why not ask your barista today for their Christmas blend? All the big chains will have one and many of the smaller coffee shops. And why not take home a bag while you are at it?
One of note is the 3fe Christmas blend with Orange, Nougat and Mulled Cider. At eleven euro a bag it’s probably not going on the weekly grocery list – though worth it if you do fork out and self care is always a great investment – but what a treat to buy a bag for someone else. You can buy it online if you don’t live near one of their seven cafes in Dublin.
If you are a tea drinker there are fewer about but one we love is the Yogi Christmas tea which you can find online or in any good health food shops.
You will be full of good will after supping on this infusion bursting with Christmas spices such as cinnamon, orange, vanilla, star anise, and cloves.
It’s the season to treat yourself so go search for a Christmas brew near you today.
