Hanukkah Harry's Hip & Happenin' Gift Guide: It's Caffeine O'clock


One of the truly disturbing side effects of becoming a parent is that you no longer sleep well or deeply.  I suppose that one's body becomes accustomed to waking up every couple of hours and, after months (if not years) of never sleeping through the night, you become unable to sleep normally again.  I often find myself wide awake at 2AM for no discernible reason while my son slumbers peacefully down the hall.  As a result of my nocturnal restlessness and newfound propensity towards insomnia, I rarely wake up feeling rested and refreshed.  Thankfully, there is always a pot of freshly brewed Aloha Island Coffee on my kitchen counter.


I know that some (many?) of you may think that all coffee tastes alike, but I promise you that is not the case. Just as Two Buck Chuck doesn't hold a candle to Chateau Neuf du Pape, Folgers is in no way equal to a cup of Aloha Island.  Aloha's coffee is grown on the Big Island of Hawaii, picked by hand, and roasted in small batches. This means that when you order a bag of coffee you're getting beans that were most likely roasted just a few days before you receive it, as opposed to weeks or months before as the case may be with other companies.  Aloha offers 100% pure Kona Coffee and Hawaiian Blends, both of which are smooth, low in acid, and a delicious way to start your morning.  If you're looking for a truly special, unique gift for yourself or someone else, I urge you to spring for the 100% Kona; you won't regret it. 

I'm guessing there is probably someone on your holiday gift list who would really enjoy receiving some truly exceptional coffee. At the very least it's quite likely that you have a very tired new parent on that list who will be thankful to you for providing her with the caffeine-fueled strength to survive another day.  

Aloha is offering a special discount code just for my readers!  To receive $1.00 off every bag of King's Reserve Diamond or a box of 18 pods designed for use with your Keurig brewer, simply  enter discount code GWT9KKW7 at checkout.



In the interest of full disclosure I will tell you that this is my family's company, but I figured that in the spirit of the holidays it was only appropriate to pimp out the family products.  The coffee is ridiculously delicious, so definitely treat yourself or a loved one.  If you want to see more about where the coffee comes from, click here.

    1. Oh, I remember those 2AM wake up calls. So painful. But I'm impressed you're surviving without the help of caffeine.

  2. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do love the smell of a pot brewing first thing in the morning. :-)

    1. I don't think I would be able to make it through a day without my coffee, so you get major points for going caffeine free!
