It’s Bean A While…

I mentioned before that I can’t find whole coffee beans at our local stores. Over the weekend I drove 30 minutes to the next town for a Wal-Mart run and while I was over there I checked out their HEB grocery store. Since I did accidentally order ground coffee instead of whole beans on my Gevalia order, I thought I would check out their coffee selection while I was there.

Whole beans!

Need I say more?

However, I still goofed a little, with the press of the Saturday shoppers on a payday weekend and three children in tow who get restless if I pause to peruse a label for too long, I inadvertantly bought decaf beans. *rolls eyes* The decaf label is tiny and I overlooked it at first glance. Oh, well, I suppose it doesn’t hurt to have a decaf option. Now I can justify having coffee in the evening, right? 😉

I can’t tell you how good it smelled when I opened the bag. Like the chef in Ratatouille who is taken back to a moment from his childhood with a single bite of the ratatouille, the smell of the beans was delicious, so familiar, like a long lost friend. If you’ve never bought whole bean coffee, it smells different before it’s ground. It really does!

And now my coffee pot is done brewing, the wonderful aroma fills the house. Time to sit & enjoy a cup. MMmmm… the end really does justify the beans!
