The smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee is the type of scent that can make people mad with desire or tremble with anticipation.
One of the things I love about the holiday season is the amazing aromas that fill the air pretty much everywhere you go. Sweet shortbread cookies baking, aromatic pine needles shining on trees and the woodsy, burnt smell of an open fire. Even when the snow falls, there is a fresh scent in the air with a tinge of chill, just begging for you to stick your tongue out and catch a flake. One of the first things I think of when these delightful perfumes waft by is enjoying a cup of my favourite hot beverage; coffee. Add in one of those cookies and I am in heaven. ♥ This holiday it is going to be even better with the wonderful collection of blends from Van Houtte; perfect for use in my Keurig or brewing fresh grounds!
Did you know that Van Houtte has been teasing your taste buds for almost 100 years? It’s not surprising when they have such delightful offerings like the Holiday Blend and Holiday Spice Latte.
