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 in the recipe card 😉
Just a couple of other things you’ll want to know about the iCoffee Opus- you can get it at Bed Bath & Beyond® stores nationwide! And, you can also make tea and hot cocoa in it! And, it’s the only k-cup style brewer with an eco-friendly reusable reusable iCup, so if you’re super picky about your beans, you can be sure to use your favorite! And, you can learn lots more at iCoffee.com, and/or by following iCoffee on their social media pages!

Hope you guys have a great weekend! And don’t forget, I’ll be away all next week. There will still be posts, but I’ll probably be a little laid back about social media sharing and comments, so please bear with me!

omigosh, we LOVE horchata here! Going to try this out because it sounds sooooo good! Have a great vacation too!
I often drink ice coffee with my left over French press coffee from the morning. I love this twist!!!! Thank you!
That is such a cute video, Allie! It makes me want to down a cup of coconut iced coffee 🙂 We’ve been traveling a lot this summer, and it does get super chaotic before leaving. Kudos to you for keeping up with your blog! As a loyal reader, I really appreciate it!
You had me at tea. So glad that’s an option here as well. Love love the video and that relaxing corner spot of yours. Have a great vacation and do listen to Mr Allie and unplug 🙂
Love the video! I wish I was relaxing with a cup of this iced coffee right now!
I am seriously so happy to hear about someone leaving on vacation this week instead of another person starting school. It’s just too early!! Have so much fun Allie, get some relaxing in! PS this is gorgeous.
That is CRAZY early to leave for vacation! But at least you have coffee. 🙂 Your video is so cute!!!
Wow! That last picture is amazing. It really makes me want that coffee right now, but it’s already evening. I’ll have this tomorrow. Have fun in your vacation.
Ha-love the video. So fun. Hmm, I so curious how this coffeemaker stacks against my Nespresso?!!
Well I happen to have a Nespresso too. I’m addicted to espresso. This was a nice change of pace though! If you like drip or French press coffee you might really enjoy this Naomi!
That LAST picture is soooo killer! Love the vid, too 🙂
Super cute video hon hahaha! And I love your little dance.
Lol thank you my dear! 😛
Where do you find coconut horchata? I hate to ask you to be a Google machine (I hear this from a certain blogger that I know and love–haha). I live in the middle of a cornfield, so there’s that. I need this coffee in my life, though. I use my Opus every single morning and being able to jazz up my coffee on occasion would be awesome. 🙂
Oh, ha! It’s early in the morning. Just saw the link to the horchata recipe. And yay for me–heading to the grocery today, so this is on my list. Enjoy your vacation!
Yay!!! Julie I hope you enjoy the heck out of it! Thanks so much 🙂
It’s no problem at all Julie! I see you’ve already found your way to the recipe. Love that you love your Opus too and I hope you enjoy your jazzed up coffee 😀
Holy cow!! Just made the horchata (yesterday) so today was the iced coffee day. I’m in love. I seriously had to stop myself from having multiple drinks. Just yum. I can’t decide if I’m nice enough to share with my husband, because he won’t stop at one drink and then I’ll be out. 🙁 I think I’m addicted. haha
