Nerdy Caffeine Fix

Bones Coffee Company

Found Familiar Coffee

I was reintroduced to Bones Coffee this summer during their Christmas in July sale. One of my favorite things about Bones Coffee are their samples packs. As someone who can never make up their mind about which flavor is my favorite, I get a lot of milage out of these bundles! Their Coffee Club also offers extra flexibility for your coffee needs. I recommend the White Chocolate Peppermint Bark.

Both Variant Rory and myself have written about our love of Found Familiar Coffee previously. Constant debate is happening at VV Headquarters about which flavors are the best. Truth be told, I’ve purchased them all at this point and I have no idea which I prefer. Thieves Cant and Goodberry are pretty high on my list though. Try their sample packs if you aren’t sure which will hit the spot in the morning.
