Every morning, all across the country, millions of Americans start the day with a cup (or more) of coffee. They either brew it themselves in the kitchen, make a pit stop at a fast food drive-thru during the AM commute, or visit the nearest Seattle-based corporate coffee shop chain establishment and overpay through the nose for some frappe/cappuccino concoction. It’s part of the morning ritual and for many, instant courage in a cup to help face the trials and tribulations of each new day in the realm of the 9-to-5ers.
On the other end of the coffee-drinking spectrum, there are those who enjoy and savor the full rich flavors of this 15th century Ethiopian brew. Instead of kickstarting the morning, it’s a way to wind down and relax. It can be enjoyed in quiet solitude or socially with a group of friends over a random conversation. With Autumn now in full-effect, a hot cup of freshly-brewed coffee could be the perfect way to warm the bones as the outdoor temperatures drop in preparation for the oncoming Winter season.
At Our Pampered Home, we offer a wide range of coffee products and accessories as well as specialty coffee blends. Let’s take a look at some of our coffee selections that expert cafeliers, coffee connoisseurs, home baristas, and the everyday Java Joes alike can all appreciate.
COFFEE BEANS & GROUND COFFEE
A major point of contention between coffee drinkers is which method of brew is better: ground coffee VS. whole beans. Ground coffee takes little time and effort to prepare and it’s readily available at any grocery store. On the flipside, ground coffee spoils at an accelerated rate, which can have a negative effect on flavor as the essential coffee bean oils are evaporated over time. Whole coffee beans offer the purest flavor with unmatched freshness and serving versatility. Coarse grounds give rich, dark, French press while smooth, finely ground beans work for espresso and regular drip coffee. Whatever your preference, we have delectable coffee flavor selections from Hawaiian Gold and Cafe Du Monde available in both ground and whole bean form.
Exotic, full-flavored gourmet Kona bean coffee from Hawaiian Gold brings the distinct flavor of Hawaii’s Kona Districts in every cup.

COFFEE CUPS & MUGS
In gourmet dining, master chefs pay as much attention to detail in presenting their dishes as they do in preparing them. Though it may seem trite and insignificant upon initial thought, but it’s all to do with the total dining experience; a psychological technique used to enhance the appeal of a prepared meal. The same can be said for coffee. Coffee, like food, can be enjoyed on both a casual and formal level. So, whether it’s that quick cup of coffee in the middle of the early morning rush, the mug that sits at your desk as your workday companion, a social gathering among friends and family, or a quiet moment alone to rest and unwind, browse through our collection of coffee cups and mugs that speak to all types of emotions and surroundings. Simple and relaxed, witty and humorous, or elegant and sophisticated; think of it as an extension of your personality. After all, it’s been said that coffee intake does have an effect on mood and disposition. We’ll leave it up to you.
