Brewing Democracy: Fair Trade Coffee that Practices Philanthropy – Blue State Red State

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

I love coffee.  I started drinking it when I had my first full time summer job.  Part of my duties was to make the morning coffee for the office.  I figured that if I was going to make it, I was going to drink it.  I didn’t really know HOW to make it though, and of course everyone has a different strength they like their coffee.

My mom likes hers strong and black, my sister with flavored creamers.  I’m sort of in between the two.  I like it black but not so strong, mild, smooth coffees are more to my liking.

I really enjoy trying new coffee blends.  Whether it is from the local coffee shop or something I find online, flavored or just normal roasts.  So when I had the opportunity to try the Liberty Bell Blend from Blue State Red State, I was more than willing to share my opinion with all of you.

I’ll admit that I am one of the people that would have a tough time giving up my coffee in economic hardship.  That’s ‘my vice’.  Take away my cable, eating out, movies – but NOT my coffee.  But still when we’re all trying to cut costs you got to find a way to justify your purchase and I can…with Blue State Red State.

See that’s what I’m talking about – every time I drink a cup of Blue State Red State I can be giving back to my country!  (What a great reason to drink my coffee!)

With three ‘brands’ to choose from – you can put your pennies where your political leanings are.  Republican?  You’ll want to get the Red State blend which supports Republican causes .  Democrat?  Well you’ve probably figured it out by now; you’d order the Blue State blend and for those that sit on the fence..well you can get the Blue State Red State blends that support non-partisan causes.

And how did it taste?  Well the Liberty Blend is a delicious roast – while it is smooth it still has a full-bodied flavor.  I love that it is USDA Organic and Fair Trade.  I found it satisfying for my morning cup of joe.

A two-pack of any of the blends in either, smooth or strong roasts or a combination of the two, is $19.98.  Each bag contains 12 oz. of coffee.
