I received several samples to try in order to write this review. All opinions are entirely my own.
I wasn’t always a coffee drinker, but given my busy lifestyle I had to jump on the coffee bandwagon about a year ago to have enough energy in the morning. At first it was a necessity, but now drinking coffee has become something I really enjoy. I love interesting flavors, so when I heard about Trader Sam’s Coffee – which creates Disney inspired coffees and has some great sounding flavors – I knew I needed to try it!
All of the Trader Sam’s Coffee are inspired by something at Disney, and they feature some great artwork on the front. But my favorite part is the back of the bag – the two coffees that I received both had a fun, made-up “backstory” that explained the origin of that coffee! For example, the Skipper’s Brew, inspired by the Jungle Cruise, came about when gorillas stole most of the coffee. And inventive skipper created a new brew of coffee and bananas! When you can laugh when reading about your coffee, that’s always a good sign.
And luckily, the coffee inside lived up to the packaging on the outside. It’s really good coffee. I’ve been drinking Trader Sam’s ever since I received it, putting all of my other coffees to the side for now. The Skipper’s Brew is the more unusual of the two that I tried, and also my favorite. The banana flavor is pretty strong, but I happen to love bananas! It definitely makes coffee more interesting.
The Prospector’s Roast, which was made when a prospector discovered “mine carts filled with hazelnuts,” was very good too. It has a nice, rich flavor, and is a very smooth coffee. If I’m not in the mood for bananas in the morning this is the perfect alternative. And probably a good option for more “traditional” coffee drinkers.
Trader Sam’s was also kind enough to send me one of their signature mugs! It’s got their adorable logo on it and it’s also big and wide so it can hold a lot of coffee without being too close to the top that it spills. I prefer these wider mugs as being clumsy is a fairly common occurrence for me 😉 And you all know I love me a Disney mug!
If you like coffee and want something tasty with a Disney flair, I highly recommend you try out Trader Sam’s Coffee. Their prices are very reasonable for the quality that you get. They also have a number of other fun items with their logo on it, like shirts and a pillow, as well as art prints with some of the gorgeous logos for each individual coffee. I’m so glad I discovered Trader Sam’s!
Which of the Trader Sam’s Coffee flavors sounds the best to you?
