Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee
Like a true Gilmore, I have trained myself to drink coffee black SOLELY because it’s the fastest route to getting caffeine flowing through my veins. Luke knew that about Lorelai, and Scott Patterson (aka Luke Danes) clearly had people like me in mind when he created his Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee line.
This coffee has been such a hit Amazon has been completely sold out of every kind for at least the week I was watching it, so I ordered my bag directly through the website hoping it would be worth the pass on Prime shipping, and let me tell you, it was worth every penny.
I ordered a bag of the Breakfast Blend and had barely gotten the box open before the sweet aroma hit my nostrils. It smelled like heaven in a bag. When a coffee bag is permeating a scent that powerfully, you know it’s gunna be strong. Conveniently, I woke up from a night of pretty crappy sleep, stressed out despite the fact it was Friday (and I didn’t even have a Friday night dinner to dread), so I was perfectly primed for a really good cup of coffee. I literally stood and watched my coffee pot brew every ounce until it was finished - partially because I was so excited to try the Scotty P coffee, but also because my brain was functioning at about the level of a goldfish.
Normally I try to get up earlier than the rest of my family to wake my mind (with the help of a lot of caffeine), do some reading while it’s still quiet and get myself mentally prepared for the day. Since this was an especially rough morning, I decided to just sit and meditate while sipping on my coffee cup. I was impressed from the first sip. The blend was strong but not overly acidic, so it didn’t have the bite that most coffees do when you drink them black. It was super smooth and flavorful and rivaled any bag of beans you’d have to take home from a craft coffeehouse (and this one arrived ground and ready to brew!)
For the few minutes I had to myself this morning I actually felt like I was a part of Star’s Hollow. The legend is true - Luke really does make the best coffee around.
