First and foremost, I want to thank NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®  for helping #CraftEachDay the last seven days by sending an NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® kit in the mail that contained an awesome new coffee mug, metal spoon, coffee recipes, a  full-size box of French Roast instant coffee sticks, and a coupon to buy an upgraded 7oz  glass jar of my favorite roast of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®. The glass jars not only lock in freshness better, but  I also like how it showcases the instant coffee granules inside. Which make it look  just as good as it tastes in my opinion.nescafe-tasters-choiceI bet now you are wondering what I thought of the #TastersChoiceChallenge ? I really enjoyed the challenge, I saved about $6.00+ a day or more that I usually spend in a coffee shop that I have to wait in line for someone to notice me and get my name right.  NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®  made things so convenient for me, I had extra time to enjoy my coffee while it was still warm this week since I didn’t blow a bunch of time in a long line.
