I am a huge fan of coffee just about any way you can imagine serving it.  Strong  and hot in the morning or an iced coffee on a hot afternoon, coffee ice cream. or an Irish coffee with a bit of a kick to it are all fine with me!  I was recently sent some coffee from Eight O’Clock to try out and decided to try their recipe for Fiesta Coffee in honor of Cinco de Mayo.  Eight O’Clock coffee is carried in my local Publix and comes in many different blends.  We usually by the French Roast because I like a coffee with a nice strong flavor.

Eight O’Clock coffee has been around since 1859…that’s over 150 years!  They offer both whole bean and ground varieties and also have decaffeinated versions as well as a few flavored blends. They are the #1 retail whole bean coffee brand in the  U.S. and  were featured in the 2010 edition of America’s Greatest Brands;

For my review, I received a bag of their French Roast coffee to try out.  This is my favorite Eight O’Clock coffee roast because of the rich, deep flavor.  I use a one scoop per cup of water ratio and the end result is a wonderful aroma and smell that really perks me up in the morning.  If you like strong coffee that is reasonably priced, I think you will really enjoy the Eight O’Clock French Roast.
You can enjoy your coffee plain and black or get a little creative with it.  In honor of Cinco de Mayo, here is a recipe for Fiesta Coffee…a great way to wind down your celebration—or the perfect kickoff to morning.


Eight O’Clock Fiesta Coffee




  • Eight O’Clock Original Blend Coffee (enough to make 4 cups)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar

Pour the coffee into the saucepan and add vanilla, stir until combined. Divide the coffee mixture into 4 cups and top with a dollop of whipped cream.  Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

  4. We always buy Eight O'Clock Coffee! That looks delicious.
  5. Okay. Now I have tried it, and my oh my is it good! I will admit that I added an extra small lump of brown sugar to my cup and a smidge of cream instead of whipped cream since it is a travel mug. But even before the extra sugar, it was tasty. I just like mine a little closer to dessert coffee. :)
