Nescafé® with Coffee-mate® + Giveaway!

I admit I`m a coffee newbie. The first time I learned how to use a coffee machine was just last year. I don`t rely on coffee to wake up everyday, or for an afternoon pick-me-up. In coffee-driven America, this might be shocking to some. I hardly know anything about the art of making coffee. Up until 2 years ago, I was unsure how to use creamer. I`m not even kidding.

Yet, I love the taste of coffee. Not black coffee, though. That`s too much for me! I`m a huge fan of milk + anything (i.e. milk + tea). So, it`s no surprise that I love whole milk in my coffee. Since I don`t own a coffee machine, I always buy bottled coffee milk  whenever I feel like drinking coffee. I bought them during college when I was staying up late to study for an exam and was running on 2-3 hours of sleep.

These Nescafé® with Coffee-mate® would have definitely been helpful. Nescafé has join forces with Coffee-mate to bring you coffee made easy with this 2-in-1! For coffee newbies and avid coffee drinkers alike, these are great to have. My youngest sister is on the daily coffee grind and she was thrilled to hear about these. She told me can`t drink coffee without Coffee-mate's French Vanilla!

I love the taste of coffee, but it`s not worth it for me to own a coffee machine for the occasional cup of jo. Now, I can make coffee in a ridiculously easy way. Even if you`re a daily coffee drinker, I think this will make your mornings easier. It eliminates the need to make coffee and add creamer. It`s an all in one product here.

All you need in hot water + a few tablespoons of this and BAM! There`s your coffee! Instant. Coffee. Since it`s coffee with creamer, you don`t need two products! It`s better together this way, don`t you think?

If you want to make it stronger, just add more of the powder. I tried all the flavors, but I can`t choose which one I like the best. The first time, I used boiled water. But now, I just heat water in the microwave until it`s really hot. Then, I stir in 2-3 tablespoons. Also, I tried making it with hot milk instead of hot water and it tasted amazing!! Of course, I love my milk....so it was almost a given...

This 2-in-1 coffee + creamer makes it so simple to make coffee the way I like it that I`ve been making it everyday since I received them! I alternate between the 3 flavors because I love them all.

  1. I'm totally the same way with coffee too. I love coffee in desserts but am a newbie when it comes to drinking or making black coffee hehe. I do love coffee creamers though and these flavors sound so delicious!

  2. I don't have a coffee maker either. But may try this out!
