PJ’s Coffee: Who Doesn’t Love a Smooth Drink?

Tea has quickly become one of my favorite drinks, and I’ve increased how often I make coffee since the COVID shift began. I love making my own coffee, but I love grabbing some from a local coffee shop.

One of my friend’s told me about one of the newest coffee shops in Bowie, Maryland: PJ’s Coffee. It’s based in Louisiana, and they recently opened a location here. When I was told that this location was owned by Black Prince George’s County natives, I wanted to visit even more.

What I Ordered

Chai Velvet Ice

If you love chai tea, I think you’ll love the Chai Velvet Ice at PJ’s Coffee. This smooth drink was the perfect way to start a Saturday morning. The spices were not lost in the blended ice version of the classic drink. I usually end up with almost flavorless ice at the end of a blended drink, and fortunately, this didn’t happen with the Chai Velvet. I’ll definitely for be back this one. Starbucks, WHO?

Vienna Creme & Beignets

I waited to try the beignets with my Vienna Creme until I got home. I’ve recently fallen in love with cold brew, so I was excited to try a different shop’s cold brew. This warm drink was made with PJ’s Viennese blend and sweetened, frothy milk. It was well worth the wait!

This was my first time having beignets at a shop or restaurant. I loved how soft they were, and the amount of powdered sugar was perfect. The coffee complemented the beignets so well, and I can’t wait to order this exact combo again.

Conclusion

I highly recommend PJ’s Coffee. The staff was so nice, and they made everything pretty fast for a busy Saturday morning. I loved that the busyness didn’t effect the quality of the service, drinks, or food. If you’re ever in Bowie, MD or Louisiana, check it out! I’m sure you’ll love it.

Until next time.

Feeling Like a Boss with Boss Blend Coffee Co.

How do you prefer your coffee? Have you tried cold brew? It’s become a very popular coffee type that I think is here to stay. As someone who typically brews coffee with grounds or instant coffee, it’s become one of my favorites. Boss Blend Coffee Co. popped up on my Instagram feed at the perfect time. A Black-owned coffee brand? Here. for. it. Let’s get into it.

What I Ordered

Keeping my vow to buy black-owned more, especially things I already love, I bought some cold brew from Boss Blend Coffee Co., which is an Afro latina-owned company based in Brooklyn. You all (probably) know I have a soft spot for New York City, so it felt good to support from a location standpoint as well. Boss Blend Coffee Co.’s Cold brew coffee is a blend of this and this. It comes in a case of six 8-ounce bottles for $20.

This was my first time trying cold brew and because of this, it won’t be my last. This was the best coffee I’ve ever had! It’s steeped for 24 hours and is rich in flavor. Per the website, the origins are Colombia and Portugal, and the notes are brown sugar, delicate, and smooth. Every note is experienced while drink this cold brew coffee. I loved that I didn’t need add to much creamer. I often end up adding more creamer depending on the bitterness of the coffee. I recently learned that the bitterness is left behind when coffee is coldly brewed. The flavor of Boss Blend Coffee Co.’s is so rich and great quality. You can taste the love, hardwork, and craft in every bottle.

Conclusion

If you’re a coffee lover who loves Coffee that has amazing quality, Boss Blend Coffee Co. is the way to go. They ship in the U.S. nationwide. They’re selling limited cold brew batches during the holiday season, so be on the look out!

Until next time.
