Cafe au Lait + Seattle’s Best Coffee!

When I was a little girl, I would tag along with my grandmother on her trips to visit my great grandmother’s farm in Mermentau, Louisiana.

To a wee little one, her home reminded me of a Southern Plantation.

It was sprawling with large white columns and wrap around porches, and rice fields as long as the eye could see.

She would take me alongside her to feed the animals, then retire inside where we would have “coffee milk” with the most scrumptious homemade Southern style biscuits.

She would instruct me to lightly dip the biscuit into the coffee, then savor the sweetness of the coffee concoction.

I felt so very grown up drinking this beverage reserved for the adults.

What I later learned was that she was actually giving me a really condensed, sweeter version of Cafe Au Lait .

Cafe Au Lait (in my household) is made with equal parts coffee and milk, with added sugar until it’s sweet like my great grandmother’s memories.

Because it is hot, hot, hot lately I’ve had less and less hot coffee in exchange for ones over ice.

 When Seattle’s Best sent me a set of their highly buzzed about coffee, I took it upon myself to have quite the little coffee date.

I scooped up a box of Cafe Du Monde Beignet mix.

Ya’ll.

I just wanted to try them with the coffee. You know, see how the coffee held up.

But when I paired it with the Cafe Au Lait made with the  Seattle’s Best Level 4, it was just more than I could handle.

I fell right off that diet wagon.

Again.

Sigh.

  1. These look amazing, Aimee! And just made me CRAVE some beignets. I try to behave myself usually and take my coffee black, but when I’m misbehaving, I love a vanilla latte!

    Coffee clinks!

  2. My coffee memories as a child involve Coffee Call but not where it is now but the original one was where Wal-Mart now stands.

  3. Ok now I’m craving the beignets with the cafe au lait! 🙂 and how cute is your handwriting on those tags? 🙂 My favorite flavored coffee is always hazelnut! 🙂

  4. I am not a big coffee drinker; I worked at Starbucks for 5 years and before that, the only thing I knew about coffee was how to spell it. I appreciate quality coffee, just like a fine wine, but as far as flavored coffees go–I’d have to go with blueberry. Ethiopian Yergacheffe has a naturally occurring blueberry flavor, but some additional flavoring never hurt anyone!

  5. I don’t hardly ever drink coffee(if they ever made one that tasted like Dr. Pepper I might!) but I love the smell of it brewing. My twenty year old college son LOVES trying different kinds and he brought home some Snickers flavored that is made in a small sandwich shop in Ruston, La. It smells AWESOMe! I might even try some!!
