Coffee+Tunes for the Weekend

Hey Team! 

Is it time to stop calling it “quarantine” and just call it the new normal? 

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I think by now we’re all running out of new things to do close to home. If you’re anything like me that “covid 19” weight gain is starting to settle in and you’re tired of spending time in the kitchen!

I may have murdered my poor sour dough starter but don’t worry, I’m not doing anything too drastic like going “keto” I just need a little break.

On the topic of breaks, I created this
fun “coffee” playlist on Spotify. Check it out and give it a listen, sip some coffee maybe put some whisky in it if you’re feeing half as bored as I was when I created the playlist.

Have a good weekend and don't forget to wash your hands.

Bored Yet?

Bored yet? Sick of home workout videos? Kill that sourdough starter you were trying to keep alive? Too many Dalgona Coffees and you fear a dentist visit coming? Welcome to another week of quarantine. Seems like this is never ending, don’t it

QUARANTINE 2020 Check In

QUARANTINE 2020 Check In

Hope everyone is staying sane—not gonna lie, I’m slowly losing it!

I don’t think my house has ever been this clean and not sure I’ve ever made this many home-cooked meals in a row. I’ll refrain from telling you all about Veronica, my sourdough starter, but just know that we’ve rekindled our relationship.

And dare I mention the hours of Netflix I’ve recently dropped into? I mean, Tiger King: check; Ozark: check; Better Call Saul: check. Need I go on?

But if you’re like me and now want to spend a little less time watching TV (or just need something to do with your hands while you watch TV), I have two fun ideas:

1. COLOR

 

Our in-house creative genius (shout out to Amy!) has made all of our packaging illustrations from Alvaro Ilizarbe available as PDFs here. They make for the perfect coloring book! Just download the book, grab your favorite colored pens (or just steal your kid’s crayons…) and get to work!

And the final step of art is to show your work! Take a picture of your masterpiece and use #AlpineStartColoring and @alpinestartfoods on Instagram to be entered to win a free Alpine Start variety pack.

2. COOK... err, blend?

If coloring isn’t your thing (it’s honestly not mine… I’m not that great at keeping it between the lines), then perhaps cooking is more your speed. Check out this (dare I say, fun) video of how to make Dalgona coffee, the velvety smooth whipped coffee that’s lighter than the clouds we dream on.  If you need to stock up on ingredients use the code Dalgona20 at checkout to receive 20% off your order.

We’re also making this a fun competition, so share your Dalgona adventures with #AlpineStartDalgona and @alpinestartfoods on Instagram and you’ll be entered to win a free Alpine Start variety pack.

The best posts from each entry will be announced at the end of April.

Good luck, enjoy, and don’t forget to wash your hands,

Matt
