If you've spent any time with me, you know about me and my coffee.
I generally have a cup in my hand (or at least nearby) at all times, until about 3pm when I need to lay off so I can sleep.
I drink a lot of coffee.
Yes I drink it in a box, yes I drink it with a fox. Yes I drink it on a chair, yes I drink it over there.
Coffee is my “thing”
I will say that, in this age of triple-extra-hot-dry-soy-no-foam-hazelnut-vanilla-but-not-too-sweet-demi-double-triple-coffaccinos, I'm generally a pretty cheap date when it comes to my coffee orders. I want it large, with cream. Easy.
Because I'm not one who fancies it up with lots of stuff, I want high quality, fresh, delicious coffee.
The Rubi kiosk they recently installed at my Lucky Supermarket is just the solution for a fast, affordable cup of great coffee.
Instead of paying $2.25 for a coffee and $1.95 for a doughnut that they shipped in to a fancy coffee shop, I can treat myself to a coffee and an old fashioned for basically the same price as just the coffee at a chain place.
The Rubi brews my coffee when I order it; it isn't being held in a warmer and then dumped into my cup… fresh ground Seattle's Best beans, purified water, steeped just so, french press style… the touchscreen makes it easy to customize; add cream, sugar or Splenda just the way you like it.
Of course, there are days I'll still want to go to the fancy schmancy cafe, where I can drink complicated drinks and nosh on imported pastries, but on a normal day, when I'm just looking for a quick little perk-up? The Rubi kiosk is a great, inexpensive, delicious solution.
You can check out the Rubi website to see if there's a kiosk near you (I hope for your sake that there is!) I might have to go back tomorrow and check out the Pumpkin Spice, and I'm totally curious to see what limited edition they offer for the winter holidays! After you've located a kiosk, you can send the text code “BEAN2CUP” to 727272 for a free coffee code! FREE COFFEE!
I got my coffee and went to the store for one thing: creamer for at home. Yes, I bought coffee to buy stuff for my coffee. Don't judge. 🙂
When do you do most of your coffee drinking? At home or on the go?
