Bold Bean Coffee Roasters


I’m not even going to beat around the bush here: Bold Bean Coffee Roasters absolutely, 100% lives up to the hype. I am so glad to have this place right around the corner from my home (& it’s on my way to work, score!).

Situated at the corner of College & Stockton, Bold Bean Coffee has created a fresh & modern space cool for early morning coffee, late afternoon lattes & evening beers. Yes, they serve beer (Bold City, to be exact). You’re welcome.

I was a little overwhelmed looking at the menu:

I mean, so many options… Where do I begin? I’d heard plenty of raving about the honey latte on Twitter, but I was skeptical. I mean, Starbucks tried this a few years ago (when I worked there actually) & I felt it was a massive failure. It just missed the mark completely.

But Bold Bean? Hit the nail on the head with this one. The espresso was fresh & strong, while the honey gave it the perfect complement of sweetness.

& of course, I had to try the Bacon & Cheddar scone:

I mean, I wouldn’t have my bacon-loving reputation if I didn’t try the bacon item almost every where I go. Typically, I’m a fan of sweet scones & not necessarily savory ones, but this was also fantastic. Like many scones end up, this wasn’t too hard. Not too bacon-y. Not too cheddar-y. Jussssst right.

Perfection. Can’t love it enough.

My New Best Friend

For months I’ve been coveting it.

For months I’ve been watching the sales.

For months I’ve been telling myself no.

But yesterday, I found the perfect sale & finally told myself yes.

I bought a Keurig!

But seriously, I couldn’t say no to this deal. Kohl’s currently has Keurig’s on sale & a 30% off coupon found its way to me. Yes, that’s right… I paid about $70 for a Keurig Mini Plus. Can’t beat that!

With one cup, I completely fell in love this morning. I cannot wait to try all of the sample cups it came with.
