Finding a coffee your family can agree on shouldn’t be complicated

Finding a coffee your family can agree on shouldn’t be complicated

There’s already enough for families to debate these days. Beyond traditional subjects of religion and politics, my household now has a daily discussion around the amount of screen time allowed, when/why/who gets to leave the house and who gets to control the remote when we’re home. Sound familiar?

Life is complicated enough, let’s take one potential debate off the table: coffee.

Here’s a quick guide to compromise:

We’ll start with my wife: she likes darker roast coffees. A great example is Fidalgo Seacost Blend. It’s a lovely brew, and perfect for the coffee drinker who adds something to their cup, perhaps a splash of eggnog?

Me on the other hand, I take my coffee black and prefer a lighter roast like Fidalgo 9 Bar, (which is in our grinder this morning). I absolutely love it. She scrunches her nose.

For the record, our 9-year-old appropriately prefers hot cocoa.

So, what’s the middle ground? How do we ensure our days start in harmony, before the pressures of quarantine life set in? Our household happy place is with Café Centro, Sunset Blend or Fidalgo Gold.

These three coffees fit into what we in the coffee biz call house style blends. Not too dark, not too light, but just right.

It’s inevitable we will all feel additional stress as the holiday season settles in (especially amid a pandemic). Fidalgo Coffee is here to take one potential pain point off the proverbial table and replace it with comfort and joy in your cup.

Happy Thanksgiving!
