I recently took the NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® coffee challenge. For one week, I changed up my usual coffee routine. Today I made a delicious, soft Coffee Cake to munch on while I sit down to write all about it.

My mornings start at 5:30 a.m. and are usually pretty rushed… and zombie like. I try to get everything I need for the next day ready the night before so I can literally just jump into my clothes and make it into the office on time. Do you know what the first thing I think of when my alarm clock goes off is? My first sip of coffee.

This wasn’t the first time I’ve tried instant coffee, in fact I always have it around to make my Mocha Cream Pie, but I generally reserve it for cooking and now I’m wondering why I denied myself! NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® was richer and smoother than my old brewed coffee. They only use responsibly sourced beans and then flash freeze them to preserve the robust coffee flavor.

Previously, my first cup of coffee didn’t happen until I got to the office. Now, with NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®, I can easily and quickly prepare a to-go cup to sip on my way to work, so when I get there I’m awake and ready to rock and roll.  I also experimented with adding homemade caramel and even an iced vanilla frap.

I’m also traveling with my coffee! I can always ensure that I get a quality cup of coffee by carrying my NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® in my suitcase when I travel! The glass jar not only ensures freshness, but also packs easily. Now I’m challenging YOU to learn more about taking the NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® Challenge. Switch your routine for one week and then come back and tell me how it went. I can’t wait to hear from you!

I also hope you enjoy my classic Coffee Cake, which complements a cup of Joe perfectly.
