Chick-fil-A Wants to Give You Free Coffee. Find Out More

Through the entire month of February, Chick-fil-A plans on giving away its coffee away for free. The deal gets even better, they plan on doing so without requiring a minimum purchase.

To compete with McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts, Chick-fil-A wants you to know that it believes its coffee is not just coffee to have with breakfast but rather, it is coffee you want to have. The coffee wars are heating up and not just because the coffee is hot.

The deal is through Chick-fil-A locations nationwide so make sure you stop by one! Coffee will be hot or iced coffee, serving up THRIVE Farmers Coffee, all day long.

Of course, the hope is that people will come in for free coffee and stay for some breakfast.

Do you want a great deal on coffee that you can keep in your home? Then shop Coffeevines and purchase coffee K-Cups to enjoy anytime!

What Are Starbucks Loyalists Thinking of the Flat White?

A few weeks ago, a lot of Americans were introduced to the iconic coffee beverage, the Flat White. While the Flat White has been around for decades in countries like Australia and New Zealand, it was only introduced to the masses of Americans when Starbucks released it earlier this year (some coffee shops have been producing it in the US prior to this, however).

It was an exciting announcement for many fans of Starbucks since there are no drinks to really look forward to this time of year; the PSL has been gone, the Peppermint Mocha has now been removed, it was back to the typical menu.

However, has the hype of the Flat White been met with equally high, true impressions of it at first taste? 

For some tasters, yes, however, it seems like there are others feeling a bit cheated by it. For one thing, blogs from people commenting on their first Flat White show pictures of their drink, which looks like typical latte, not the Flat White. If you go to a Starbucks, the picture shows a coffee cup filled with golden coffee and a white dot; many pictures from real Flat Whites show a white, foamy top, like usual lattes.

Another thing that commenters have mentioned, aside from the lack of the iconic look, is that it does not taste any bolder than their typical latte, which is a classic trait of the Flat White.

Now, keep in mind, these are the opinions of bloggers and each person has a different experience. Bottom line? Try one for yourself and see what you think! Let us know what you think about the Flat White

Not into trying fancy drinks? Then stick with simple, easy to make single cup coffee such as coffee K-Cups from Coffeevines!

GE Fridges Get In-Door K-Cup Brewing System

Wow, talk about an advancement in the K-Cup coffee brewing world!

Soon, very soon, you will have yet another great reason to be staring at your fridge because it will be brewing your coffee. GE Café French doors have been known to have hot water dispensers, this is nothing new; however, GE has just come to an agreement with Keurig to create a fridge that can also brew your coffee K-Cups.

The feature is removable and should you choose to use it, it operates like how we would expect. You take out the brewer, put in the K-Cup, put the brewer back, choose your size, and let if cascade into your cup.

The cool part is that you can still operate it with your smartphone if you want to; if you are someone who likes to wake up to the smell of coffee in the morning, then set a timer and wake up to happiness! It is also easy to clean since it is dishwasher safe and as stated, removable. If you like reusable cups, you can still use them with this fridge.

The only foreseeable problem is that taller glasses, including some tumblers, will not likely fit into the machine.

Does this scan the lid like the Keurig 2.0? No. Can you still use 3rd-party packs? Possibly.

The fridge will hit sales floors in the fall and with a $3,300 price tag.

If you love your K-Cup coffee and want to really impress your friends, consider this fridge.

What You Need to Know About Shoveling Snow & Hot Cocoa

So if you live in any of the northern states, then it is likely that you have had to dealt with at least some snow in the last few weeks. If you live in the upper-midwest or the northeast, then you have had to deal with quite a bit of it.

This means that we have been shoveling quite a bit of snow. 

When we are outside in the winter & shoveling snow, we tend to get cold, even with all that protective gear on. In order to ward off things like hypothermia, frostbite, or just being uncomfortable for too long, we have to go inside and warm up. What expedites the warm up process and is delicious is hot cocoa

It can take a long time to make hot chocolate from the stove so you need something fast because this is an emergency! Why not brew a dark chocolate hot cocoa K-Cup? It will only take you a minute and you'll be back to warmth, and happiness, in no time!
