Awake To The Ultra Smooth Taste of KEMOSABE Chocolate Hazelnut Instant Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 9/21/2016

“Jimmy, do you smell that?” I asked my husband who was snuggled under the covers next to me in the queen size bed in the guest room in my son’s house in Vermont.

“It smells like hazelnut coffee,” he replied as he sat up in the bed. “Now I smell bacon and toast,” he added.

“It’s just like Michelle to get up early and prepare us breakfast,” I stated. “She’s like that, always looking after other people. I’m going to get up and go downstairs and help her.”

“I’ll be down in a few minutes,” Jimmy stated, as he rolled over in the bed and pulled the covers over his head like a bear who just entered hibernation.

“Good morning, Michelle,” I stated as I walked into the kitchen where Michelle was tossing the beacon. “The smell of the coffee woke me up. What kind of coffee is it?”

“It’s Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut instant coffee,” she pleasantly answered. “Doesn’t it smell delicious?”


“Do you want a cup?”

“Yes, Michelle, that would be wonderful.”

“Let me make you a cup. I should just be a minute,” Michelle answered as she poured half a 16-ounce bottle of water in a coffee mug.

“Oh, instant coffee?” I surprisingly stated.

“Yes, it’s instant coffee. Is that OK with you?

“Of course, Michelle. It’s just that I don’t ever remember an instant coffee that has such a delightful aroma.”

“Wait till you taste the coffee,” she answered as she extracted a single serve envelope from the box of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut coffee that was on the counter next to the toaster.

I watched as Michelle opened the single serve envelop and poured its contents into the mug. Here is your coffee, she said as she stirred the contents into the hot water just before she handed me the cup.

“Humm! This is delicious, Michelle,” I pronounced after I had taken a sip. “Perhaps the best tasting instant coffee I ever had!”

“Morning, Michelle,” Jimmy stated as he walked into the kitchen.

“Jimmy, you have got to taste this instant coffee. It’s chocolate hazelnut and its absolutely delicious,” I announced.
