The Only Way To Do Spring-KEMOSABE Iced Instant Hazelnut Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 4/25/2016

All week you have been thinking about planting your garden, after all it has been a long winter and a rather wet spring so far and the forecast for this weekend is for seventy-degree weather, low humidity and clear blue skies. Perfect conditions to go to your local nursery or home improvement center and pick out your annuals for the garden.  

The rays from a warm spring sun greet you as you step out of your house to walk your garden one last time before you go to the nursery and select your annuals. You’re feeling good and excited about the day to come. Before you head to the nursery your wife suggest she make two containers of your favorite Kemosabe iced instant hazelnut coffee. Anxious to get the morning started you complain that the coffee will take too long to make. She then tells you the coffee is instant and it will be ready in less than two-minutes. You accept her time frame because you know how much you enjoy iced instant hazelnut coffee.

Five minutes later you’re in the car any on your way to the nursery, happy you decided to wait while your wife make the two containers of iced instant hazelnut coffee. With spring in the air and the anticipation of planting the garden each sip of the iced coffee tasted heavenly.

You and your wife arrive at the nursery Kemosabe iced instant hazelnut coffee containers in hand. The nursery’s broad view of the color generated from the rows of annuals elevates your enthusiasm to begin shopping. You spend the next two hours systematically roaming up and down each isle picking up various annuals, discussing how and where each would be placed in the garden.   

To make a long story short, that afternoon you plant your garden and spread your mulch. You and your wife stand back, look at the beautiful garden, hug each other and discuss the events of the day that led you to this proud moment. Your wife suggests you celebrate the success of the garden by having a drink. You suggest you end the day the same as it began with an iced hazelnut instant coffee. She agrees.

Ten minutes later your wife returns with two jars of iced hazelnut instant coffee. You take your seats in your favorite Adirondack chairs overlooking the garden and toast each other to a job well done. “This is the only way to do spring,” you state as your two jars meet.
