Parachute Coffee Airdrop in My Box (ow ow!)

Seriously. My box has never smelled so good. My mailbox, that is.

Parachute Coffee Roasters Review - Canadian Coffee of the Month -SheEats.ca

So, I like coffee. And I know you like coffee. We like coffee.

Hold the phone. Or in this case, maybe the pot (I know I live in B.C., but not that kind of pot) – we don’t just like coffee. We breathe coffee. We yearn for coffee. Yes. The aroma of freshly brewed coffee at 6am, and the anticipation of its percolating effects is more than electrifying, it can be down right arousing.

Which is why I was so stoked to see my box stuffed to the brim with the September coffee delivery from Parachute Coffee. That’s right – you heard me correctly. It’s like a caffeine lover’s wet dream. If that wetness was coffee.

Michael and Jake believe in keeping things simple and telling the real version of every story. And they’re around to help us brew better coffee. Each and every month, Parachute Coffee “parachutes” small-batch, specialty, award-winning coffee from Canadian roasters into my mailbox and I don’t even have to leave the house. And mama, small batch doesn’t mean small delivery. This bad boy has girth. 25-30 cups of girth. For a whopping $25 a month. And being the kinda gal I am (the kind who likes convenient, inexpensive girth),  I will never complain about that.

Now you know me. I don’t like brand names too much. They’re over-processed, unethically sourced and generally neither too fantastic nor amazing tasting. I will never, ever, ever, EVER post about or recommend a product to you that I don’t think holds water (get it? water = coffee) unless something was so appalling and I just had to yell out “Stranger Danger!” That’s not what my blog is for. It’s for talking dirty, eating lusciously and making poop jokes. But if we can get our mitts on stellar, ethical-as-earthly-possible, delicious tasting shiznat, I want you to know about it. Parachute Coffee is one of those things.

This month’s coffee was the Finca Don Chepe from Pig Iron Coffee Roasters in Toronto. Awesome enough, right? Pigs. Iron. Coffee. Now add in the flavours of dried raspberries and Oreos and prepare to have your mouth blown. Seriously. I haven’t bought Oreos in years but the mere scent of this coffee was enough to bring me back to my childhood. Which was filled, with Oreos. At least when I could sneak ’em into the house.

I realize I’m a website designer at ohksocialmedia, but my friends, this coffee is more than internet “java”. It’s delicious morning “code” for your mouth. My 6 point morning code of conduct:

  1. Wake up & check phone (despite my best efforts to resist it).
  2. Pee.
  3. Get stimulated. Parachute Coffee first; Other things later. Ow ow!
  4. Pee.
  5. More coffee. Because I’m the kinda gal that likes it twice.
  6. More pee. Because I have the tiniest bladder in ‘da universe.

Man, I’m pretty much the classiest chick alive, aren’t I? Just be glad I’m not telling you about my poops. That’ll come, my friends. All in good time. Kind of like good coffee. I figure we’ve been hot and heavy for a while now, we can spend our mornings together. Or at least our morning coffee. And this is mine.

What’s your 6 point morning code of conduct? Dig coffee? Tea? Whiskey? How do you take it? Black? Creamy? Sweet? All in? (ow ow!) Have you tried a monthly mail coffee delivery (or any) service? What’s your brand of go-to coffee?

Disclosure of Material Connection: Food Bloggers of Canada and Parachute Coffee sent me a review bag of this coffee at no cost. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. All opinions and information is entirely accurate and a reflection of my true experience and was not influenced, in any way, by the above mentioned products. Opinions and views are my own. Because that’s how I roll, yo. I’ve never been one to shut my mouth – I’m not going to start now.

    If I could inject coffee directly into my veins, I would.
    This sounds like a great company. Thanks for sharing.

    I adore the smell of coffee, but have always hated the taste. This sounds like such a fun idea – I wonder if there is a chocolate of the month club. I could use some girth. (ba boom boom ching!)

      Ooooooh Sondi! I’d like to jump on that train! Or a pasta of the month club. A BOURBON OF THE MONTH CLUB! Okay, I’m getting carried away.

      PS. I don’t love black coffee myself – it’s too bitter. a bit of sugar and cream (or baileys) is always my go to. And I love every minute of it. Do you drink tea?

    Parachute Coffee have a great recipe on their blog (tumblr) from a couple of months ago. Cold brew is a great way to get the best out of excellent coffee beans.

      Hey Steve! They sure do. I love their post too about coffee ice cubes (which may or may not make it into the next Parachute post 😉 )……Hint: it definitely will.

      How do you take your cold brew coffee?

        I’m really an espresso guy. My son got me into Cold brew and it’s not so bitter. So I’m looking for other recipes that I can use up my brew. I think there’s less caffine in cold brew coffee but I really need to find that out before I double my number of coffees each day. Cheers

          Oooooooh yes. My partner loves espresso too. It’s quite strong for me, but I’m happy to dilute it with baileys if need be 😉

          PS. Good plan. I’d hate to see you OD on caffeine! Caffeine over-doses are never good.

    Dude. Seriously about that checking the phone first thing in the morning thing. So annoying. Yet so…hard…to…resist….
    I’m a Starbucks gal. Please don’t wing inanimate objects at my head!! I just love their coffee. Espresso roast, ground fine, made into a soy mocha with my homemade chocolate sauce. MY HEROIN. Absolutely.
    I even buy special cups for it.
    I drink these 2-3 times a day. The phytoestrogens alone will probably give me a third boob. Oh, well.

      Word to that Lindsey! I’m thinking about taking it and hiding it. Kind of like an out of sight, out of mind sorta thing. But that means I can’t check it. Which I guess is the point. But I reeeeeeaaaaallllllyyyyyy need to check it 😉

      PS. No inanimate objects. Kittens maybe. But no inanimate objects 😉

      PPS. I occasionally grab one of the Christmas lattes from there. No kittens please.

      PPPS. Is there a law against so many PSes? ….. I’m sure your third boob is lovely.

    Too funny, girl…very funny. I’m with ya on the morning phone-check followed by pee followed by coffee routine, and I’m trying to change the whole thing to some sort of exercise followed by warm lemon water routine and it IS NOT WORKING. Sigh. In my next life…

      hahahahaha Oh dear. I really like cucumber water Sarah. Why warm lemon water as opposed to lemon water? Does your body absorb it faster or something?

      PS. We can exercise together. Or at least think positive exercising thoughts for each other.

    OK, so after seeing your IG post I had to come get a sniff of your box! Sounds painful but there is always a blurry pleasure line. I thoroughly enjoyed the coffee, as well!!
