Some things go well together: peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, bees and honey, and my favorite COFFEE & CROCHET! Starbucks happened to take notice of my love for coffee and sent me some samples of their Core Coffee Series! I frequently stay up late crocheting “just one more row” so this mom of 3 needs multiple cups of coffee to make it through the day 🙂 Of course there is nothing I love more than enjoying my coffee along with a little crochet time. I whipped up some fun crochet coffee mug coasters that would be perfect for a hostess gift and would also work as an appliqué. Or keep them for yourself and use the next time you have company! Free pattern is posted below!
Growing up in Seattle, Starbucks has always been my go-to coffee spot plus you can find many of their coffees (including the ones in this post) available in grocery stores! I had the pleasure of trying the Starbucks® Veranda® blend, Starbucks® House Blend, and the Starbucks® Caffe Verona® blend. The House Blend is my favorite and has been my coffee of choice for some time now but I also really like the lighter more mellow taste of the Veranda Blend. So happy to have found a new favorite! Try them for yourself and let me know which one you like best!

As a new member of the Starbucks Blogger Community I will be posting several Coffee + Crafty posts sporadically over the coming year! I hope you stick around to see my coffee reviews which will always include a new free coffee themed crochet pattern or craft tutorial! Starbucks did not compensate me for this post. All opinions about the coffee and other products are 100% my own!
