Well friends, I’m hosting the last giveaway for my “5 Bags Up for Grabs” coffee giveaway from Heartland Roasters. I have to tell you, as the bags were leaving one-by-one, I found it a little hard to pry my fingers off each and every bag. This coffee smells so incredibly good…and guess what? It tastes even better!
Let me tell you how this giveaway all began. I was searching for products that I love that I could offer to my readers. If you know me well, you know that coffee and chocolate are my weakness. I live in the “Heartland” here in Oklahoma on a ranch, and I wanted to find a great coffee company to work with so I could host a review and giveaway for someone local. I stumbled upon a site and realized they were in the same area as I was! How cool is that?!
So here begins the giveaway story….
I contacted the owner of Heartland Roasters about my idea on a giveaway featuring his coffee. I have to say, he has been fantastic to work with. Not only did he supply me with bags to giveaway, but he was generous enough to provide 5 bags for my readers. AWESOME!
I was given samples to try myself and the flavors were the same as the giveaway bags. Creme Brulee, Snickerdoodle, the Secret Blend, Irish Cream and my favorite in the whole wide world: Caramel Macchiato. The winners of these bags have stayed in contact with me and fully agree that this is some GOOD coffee!
Here’s a little background story on how Heartland Roaster came to be: (taken from their site)
“Heartland Roasters is owned and operated by 3 friends in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. After home roasting coffee for many years as a way to share quality, specialty coffee with friends and family, we finally decided to make a longtime dream come true. An opportunity allowed us to acquire a 1985 GN-12 Probat-Werks roaster handcrafted in West Germany. After finding a suitable location on a ranch, we relocated the roaster to Green Country (thanks for your help Dad) to start roasting great coffee!”
That was what attracted me to Heartland Roasters….they had a dream and went for it! And…..there was a ranch included so you know…I’m partial to that!! Now, back in the day, when I drank coffee there was a whole lot of sugar and a whole lot of milk involved. I don’t think it could be considered coffee after I attacked it with enough cream and sugar to supply a bakery with. I often would get asked if I wanted coffee with that sugar….but I was cool….I drank coffee…..I was young…..and had a constant sugar rush……..and look out….the crash afterwards was not pretty…..
But today, I’m an “add a dab of butter (yes……butter….Kerrygold grassfed butter to be exact) and a splash of cream and I’m good” kind of gal. But guess what? With my Heartland Roasters coffee, most was drank just black…I graduated….my dad will be proud to hear this!
Hearltand Roasters coffee is without a doubt, on my “favorites” list. Their prices are very reasonable, and the bags they use work as a great gift! I’m using them for birthdays, Christmas, and all the in-betweens. They would make excellent hostess gifts too! (Or…how about a gift for a new dad? My sweet baby niece was born this weekend….I’m on “all things baby” mode.)
I asked a few of the winners of the previous 4 bags of coffee how they would describe the flavor they received.
EmmaLee won the “Irish Cream” bag and said it is “Bold and flavorful! Nice roast and I like the Irish Cream taste!”
Erika mentioned this about the Secret Blend, “It was yummy goodness with the perfect flavor and hint of sweetness, no cream or sugar needed!”
