I’m a free agent when it comes to coffee. I enjoy different flavors and brands, and so single serve cups make the most sense for me when it comes to brewing coffee.
I know I’m not unique in my love for coffee – and if someone, anyone really, gave me a Valentine with some Java attached to it, well let’s just say they’d be counted as pretty special in my book.
And when I recently received a 40-count variety box of Java Factory Single Serve Cups, I had a momentous break through of the cutest Valentine ever for the coffee loving male squeeze in your life.
You see the flavors that come in this variety pack are as follows:
Dark and Handsome
It’s the last two that made me think “this would be awesome for Valentine’s Day for a man that drinks coffee!!”
I of course turned on my Silhouette Cameo for this project, but you can still do it even if you don’t have one with some simple substitutes!
I got the Coffee Cup Treat Bag template to cut from the Silhouette Design store. I cut that out with some DCWV Paper with the print on the inside, leaving the kraft paper look on the outer package.
Then I created a file, to print a design on each side to correspond with the Dark and Handsome coffee and the Da Bomb coffee.
For the ‘hey there handsome!,’ I used blue vinyl and for the “YOU are da bomb,” I used a combination of black vinyl and red paper (I adhered the red paper with Modge Podge).
Then I sealed it with a “kiss” that I happened to have from a set of Valentine stickers.
What a great Valentine for your coffee loving guy, right?! Your main man is not a coffee drinker? Get creative – you could give just Da Bomb coffee or how about “I’m Choconuts for You” ? I’m sure there are plenty of ‘smooth caffeinators’ in your life that would appreciate a cup of joe for Valentine’s Day!
And for those of you that want the file for the side designs…here it is!
For those of you without a Silhouette Machine, you can still do this by printing out this free Fry Box Party Favor download on creatingkeepsakes.com. And you could design and print out the sayings with a program like Picmonkey.com or Canva.com and then glue them on the Fry Box.
Of course you need the coffee too 🙂 And you can get that on Amazon.com and with an Amazon Prime Membership you can have it at your door in 2 days (psst.. if you click that link you can get a free 30-day trial for it! Yep I make a few bucks if you sign up, but it doesn’t cost you anything if you cancel before the 30 days are over).
Naturally I had to test the coffee varieties before I could give it away for Valentines!
Wakey Wakey is a crisp light roast coffee that will start your morning out without any bitterness.
Need something a little bolder.. then Smooth Caffeinator brings it up a notch, being full bodied but still mild.
Dark and Handsome is going to give you an extra bold velvety taste and if you need an even bigger caffeine boost that’s what Da Bomb is for with DOUBLE the caffeine of regular coffee.
For those of us that love a cup of flavored coffee, both the Choconut and the Vanilla Dream peek your senses, both with the aroma and as you’re savoring each sip.
Just a note that these Single Serve Cups are not compatible with the new Keurig 2.0 brewer, but will work with the older versions and machines like the iCoffee or other brands that don’t need a DRM K-Cup.
Java Factory wants one of you to have the chance to experience their single serve coffee cups as well! So they are giving away a 40-count variety pack here on my blog!
