Millstone Bean To Cup Tasting Kit GiveawayI’ve made no secret of my love for coffee. It is one of my daily pleasures! So I was delighted when Millstone offered to send me a Millstone Bean To Cup Tasting Kit complete with a Keurig and Millstone K-Cups! Test delicious coffee at home in my yoga pants? Oh yeah! That is perfect for me!

I was even more excited when they said I could give an additional kit to one of my followers! Are you a fellow coffee lover? You can enter to win a Millstone Bean To Cup Tasting Kit that includes all of the items in the photo collage above! But first, let me tell you about my experience with Millstone coffee.

MillstoneI visited Millstone.com and check out the beautiful, new, virtual Millstone Bean Journey! The journey starts with how the beans are grown in Arabica, handpicked, washed and dried.


As I scrolled down the virtual through the virtual journey, I learned how the beans are roasted and blended. I learned that Millstone Master Roasters spend 2- 4 years training their palates to detect the key attributes that make each cup of Millstone Coffee taste exceptional! They look at the acidity, body, aroma, flavor and balance! Want to learn more? Check out the Millstone Bean Journey!

Keurig Millstone Foglifter K-CupAfter all that reading, I was ready for some sampling! The Foglifter is a medium roast that has a bright, spicy aroma with a complex flavor, delicate notes and a rich, full body. This is a perfect coffee for drinking after dinner with a chocolate dessert!

Millstone K-CupsI also sampled Millstone Breakfast Blend and Hazelnut Cream. The Breakfast Blend is a light roast. It has delicate top notes and a bright floral, almost tea-like finish. We found that it was a perfect way to start the day!

But my favorite coffee was the Hazelnut Cream! It is a deliciously flavored coffee that is such a treat to drink. I received my tasting kit on a Monday and by Friday we only had a couple hazelnut K-Cups left from the box!

Keurig Millstone K-CupI am excited to finally have a Keurig and I love that I can make Millstone coffee in it. I have been loving waking up in the morning, popping a K-Cup in my Keurig and sitting down to start the day with a cup of delicious, smooth Millstone coffee! My tween even offers to make it for me now. Brian very rarely drank coffee in the morning because of the time it took to make it. Now, he makes himself a cup of coffee almost every morning and has really been enjoying it!

Chocolate Chip Cinnamon RollI’ve been enjoying my coffee so much that I couldn’t stop at just drinking it. I had to use it in a recipe and I wanted the recipe to be easy enough to make in the morning.  And of course the recipe had to include chocolate! I started out by placing Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls on a greased cookie sheet. Then, I took a teaspoon of mini chocolate chips and pressed them into the top of each cinnamon roll. I put them in the oven at 400°F for 8-10 minutes.

Mocha Glaze DrizzleWhile the cinnamon rolls were baking, I made a Mocha Glaze Drizzle with my Millstone coffee! I put one tablespoon of mini chocolate chips in a bowl and added one tablespoon of hot Millstone Foglifter coffee to the chocolate chips and stirred until the chips melted. Then, I slowly stirred in the frosting that came with the refrigerated biscuits until smooth. I put the mocha glaze into the fridge for 15 minutes to get it to thicken a bit before drizzling on the cinnamon rolls.

  1. Stef Coupns says

    I learned Handpicking protects the tree and ensures only the ripest beans are selected for peak flavor.

  2. Jean says

    I learned that the beans are nestled inside a fruit, which is bright red when ripe, and that they must be handpicked.

  3. Taylor Krasley says

    I was surprised to learn that it takes 7 to 21 days for the beans to dry. So much more appreciation for my cup of coffee!!

  4. Cassandra Eastman says

    I learned so much! I think the neatest thing is that coffee beans come from a fruit, and when they wash them the bean comes out and they let them dry on patios! Amazing!

  5. Wild Orchid says

    I learned that the beans are more acidic the higher the elevations they are grown in.

  6. susan smoaks says

    I learned that the beans grow somewhere between the tropic of cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. i am such a coffee lover and i loved reading the jounrey!

  7. Amber says

    Ooh that looks amazing, and this would be awesome to win! I learned that the higher the coffee beans grow the more acidic they become!

  8. Jesse says

    That is crazy they have to hand pick beans! That’s a lot of time to go into 1 cup;) The mocha glaze sounds amazing!

  9. Heather says

    I didn’t know that handpicking beans actually protects the tree!! I’m an environmental science major, so that’s important to me,

  10. Natalie J Vandenberghe says

    I did not know about the coffee “cherry” Bright & Crimson is beautiful!
    “Once fully formed, the fruit changes from green to yellow, and finally to a bright, glossy red.”
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. Beth R says

    I didnt know that coffee is actually a fruit first. We enjoy the yummy goodness from the pit of that red fruit.

  12. Jonelle L says

    I didn’t realize so many factors went into how the beans taste, just from where and how they’re grown.

  13. Vanessa B says

    I learned they mix different beans to make different flavors, cool! I love my Keurig Vue and I need a K Cup Keurig for even more flavors, Thanks for the chance!

  14. Jordan D says

    I learned that coffee beans are handpicked, which is pretty incredible since everything seems to be done by machine nowadays

  15. Jessie C. says

    I learned that Higher temperatures in the lower elevations can accelerate the drying process. Drying can take anywhere from 7 to 21 days, depending on the weather conditions.

  16. Dana S says

    I learned that they use multiple roasted beans for the different blends of coffee that they sell. I always thought it was one bean, one style.

  17. says

    Mmmm that glaze looks DELICIOUS!! And now that I am a stay-at-home mom (and not rushing off to work in the morning without a chance to make coffee) I am becoming more and more of a coffee person. That Hazelnut Cream sounds heavenly!!

  18. Amber P says

    I didn’t know that coffee beans are not dark brown until they are roasted and that they start out looking like berries. :)

  19. Cecilia Wade-Doron says

    It was interesting to learn that the higher the temperature can cause the beans to dry from 7 to 21 days faster!

  20. Becky Lewis says

    Wow…..those cinnamon rolls…..get in mah belly!!! Would be perfect with Millstone Hazelnut!! Thank you!!!!!

  21. Ashley says

    I had no idea about any of the process. It was very interesting. And that it actually came from a coffee cherry so does that mean it is a fruit and part of a regularly healthy diet (hehe, couldn’t resist). Love my coffee! Wakes me up in the morning and then at night, nothing relaxes me more than climbing in my bed with a nice hot cup of coffee!

  22. Shanan says

    The photos of the land there are so beautiful, it would be a great place for a vacation and a personal tour of the lands would be awesome! I didn’t realize they had 30 varieties either, I guess I need to make a list.

  23. Shanan says

    I love this post! I found you on Pinterest, I can’t wait to see what else you’ve got going here! This coffee sounds so delicious and those cinnamon rolls, Oh My Goodness! Thanks so much!

  24. Bunny says

    Okay, I’m a little slow, but all these years of drinking coffee, and I never realized coffee beans secrete oil. Wow. I’ve never felt more blonde in my life! My best friend has a Keurig, and I keep trying to talk her out of it so she’ll give it to me! I would love love love to have one of my own!

  25. Lisa says

    Oh what a blessing it would be to win this coffee maker! I have been wanting one for a long time! Thanks so much for the giveaway! I already follow you on Pinterest but now I follow on Twitter also! Have a blessed day!

  26. says

    Not being a coffee drinker I knew nothing about it. I found it very interesting how it is grown and what the coffee plant looks like. I wouldn’t have known it comes out of something that looks like a berry. I thought it would have come from a pod, after all isn’t it called a coffee bean.

  27. LisainLouKY says

    Oh, how I would enjoy all that coffee! One of life’s simple pleasures is a good, cup of coffee to start the day!

  28. says

    I had no idea that “coffee cherries” were a thing! They are beautiful! I thought they were just green, I did not realize they turn to a beautiful bright red!

  29. Ambrielle Bender says

    I learned a few things, I did not know that the higher the beans grow the more acidic they become, I didn’t know it is called a Coffee Cherry (see I am getting my daily recommended amount of fruit). I learned the “beans” are roasted in excess of 400 degrees! And the length of the roast determines the strength of the roast. 2-4 years of training for a taster is pretty incredible too. The one thing I already knew is that my favorite Millstone flavor is always sold out :( lol All of this makes me appreciate each cup even more.

  30. says

    I love Millstone coffee! I have one Kuerig that I use about 5 times a day, but I need another one for the vintage camper I’m redoing. Wish me luck!

  31. Rachel says

    I never would have guessed that a coffee bean started out looking like that!! Thanks for the education and the chance to win a fabulous prize!!

  32. Mary says

    I love coffee and have wanted to get a Kuerig. It would be great to be able to enjoy the breakfast blend in a Keurig every morning!

  33. Karan Ogilvie says

    Can’t wait to try the Mocha Glaze rolls; the chocolate chips are a great addition.
    Enjoy your blog and recipes.

  34. Brittany says

    I didn’t realize that the beans are picked by hand. I just figured in this day and age, that they had some sort of machine to help with that process.

  35. pruttybird says

    During the roasting process, the bean swells to twice its size, turns brown, and begins to secrete essential coffee oil.
