Guess what you guys! I’m leaving for vacation tonight!
Actually we are leaving early tomorrow morning. I’m talking like 2:30 am -ish. We are heading down to the Outer Banks for the first time ever! I’m super excited. We rented a mini-van, to make the 8-hour drive a bit more comfy, and we’re bringing my mom along for the week too. I can’t wait to relax, enjoy my peeps, and do some more soul-baking 🙂
But I’ve gotta tell ya, over the last few weeks leading up to this, I have been a crazy person. Mr. Allie is hoping I can unplug for the week, and in order to do that, I have been working way overtime to get recipes made and photos shot, edited, and uploaded. I thought about just letting the blog go dark for a week, but I just couldn’t do it. I’ve got too much great stuff to share before the summer’s over!
So I’m running ragged over here. Lots to do and plus back-to-school is right around the corner so I’m sure I’m not alone in wanting to be fully prepped for that. I’m running full-steam ahead every day from morning ’til night and there have been plenty of times where I need a mid-afternoon caffeine boost to get me through it.
Most of the time, I’m pretty predictable when it comes to the coffee I drink. Sticking to a daily routine helps make my mornings a little easier, so the first thing I usually do when I wake up is grab my usual cafe latte.
But recently, I had the opportunity to try a different kind of coffee maker. It’s the iCoffee Opus, and if you like drip-brewed, pour-over, or french press coffee then you will love this machine. It features a unique SpinBrew™ Technology, to create a rich, french-press like brew, with no bitter or acidic aftertaste. It’s compatible with all k-type cups so it’s super simple to use- just pop in a single-serve cup and you’re off to the races. It can literally brew a 10-ounce cup in less than a minute. Perfect for busy days!
Since I was using a different kind of brew from my ordinary, I thought why not jazz things up and make them a little more special? So, just 4 ounces of coffee were brewed over ice (make sure you use heat-safe vessel to do this! The sudden temperature change can crack regular glass. Been there, done that.), and a generous glug of that creamy-dreamy, cinnamon almond spiked Coconut Horchata was poured on top.
It’s such a fun combination of flavors and I think you’ll love it! I even made you a little video to show you just how easy it is to prepare. It’s right down under the recipe card 😉
