My husband alone usually drinks 4 to 5 cups of coffee a day. The first cup starts at home and usually the last cup he drinks at home too. The other cups of caffeine he sips during his loooong workdays. So to say the least, we spend a decent of money on coffee and getting the ‘good stuff’ is important to us.
I am always up for trying new brands, because you never know what you might find! Blue State Red State is a new brand to me. I’ve never heard of this coffee, and I’ve never seen it in stores… but that makes sense because it is typically bought online.
There are a few differences in this coffee than other coffee brands, for instance how they donate part of their profits.
They recently launched a mission to give Americans the opportunity to buy quality products to support the causes that matter most to them, beginning with coffee. But it’s all political. No really… they donate 33% of the profits to either the Democratic or Republican causes based on which coffee brand you buy.
Blue State Red State, operates three distinct brands as follows:
• Blue State Red State – donations to charities and politically neutral non-profit organizations
• Blue State Blue – donations to Democratic advocacy groups
• Red State Red – donations to Republican advocacy groups
But I don’t like politics. In fact I try to stay out of it. And now all this drama with the Governator…. Arnold, oh, dear, Arnold…you’re no different from the rest. Oh, back to the coffee… Right, so since I don’t like politics and don’t really want to donate to EITHER side, there is a coffee for me too, the flagship Blue State Red State brand donates 33% of profits to non-profit organizations. That’s more like it.
We taste-tested the Ramparts Roast coffee. Ramparts Roast is our stronger blend – robust, deep and bold with a delightful smoky accent! This two pack contains a 12 oz. bag of each.
We really enjoyed the taste of this coffee. It is flavorful, high quality, has a lovely aroma and just good. One of the perks about this coffee is it is ordered online and delivered right to your door! We are enthusiastic about the fact this coffee is fair trade, shade grown and organic pieces of this coffee.
