Green Mountain Coffee Wellness Collection!

Hi all!  As I've shared before, I'm a bzz agent, so I often get discounts on products or free samples in exchange for trying new products and sharing my thoughts.  If you are not a buzz agent, check them out.  It's an awesome program and gives you great opportunities to try new things!

Recently, I was asked to join the Green Mountain Wellness campaign, and I was pumped. I mean, free coffee, does it get much better than that?  My bzz kit arrived last week, and, I was excited.  Green Mountain Wellness Collection is available in K-cups for the keurig and comes in two blends:

  • Focus Blend contains 50mg of L-Theanine per serving
  • Antioxidant Blend is a good source of antioxidant vitamins C and E

  • Fortified coffee, what a fabulous idea, right?  The coffee is medium roast.  I have to admit, I was a little bit skeptical......  You know that smell that hits you as soon as you walk into a vitamin or supplement store?  I was really afraid the coffee was going to taste like those stores smell.  But, I was SO wrong.  This coffee is great!  I prefer my coffee strong, really strong, so I brewed mine with less water than usual.  My first cup was the focus blend, which was good, slightly weak for me but still pretty tasty, and there was no hint of that vitamin taste.  The focus blend definitely got me through a tough afternoon of work.

    This weekend, I tried the antioxidant blend, this one is my favorite!  It's a little stronger than the focus blend, but without being overpowering or bitter.  A bit of cream and a splenda made for a perfect cup of coffee.  I even ended up brewing another cup in the afternoon, which I rarely do on weekends.

    All in all, the Wellness Collection makes for a great, healthy cup of coffee.    And, the even better news is that Green Mountain coffee is fair trade, which is important to me.  I'll definitely be adding it into my regular rotation of coffees, although I do prefer darker roasts.  It's available for purchase at and  If you want to try some, try this coupon code: GMCBEWELL for $3 off of any K-cup purchase.  Try it and enjoy!
