The afternoon lull at work hit hard today. Coffee was in order. I immediately reached for Café Bustelo's Espresso Coffee. At $2.69 for 10 oz., this literal brick of coffee is a God-send.
Rewind to college days, I remember my mom had added this to my going-away goodies one semester (thank you, Ma). I wasn't sure what to expect, but the coffee I had at my apartment just wasn't cutting it, so I broke open the Bustelo. Now, I love dark coffee and bold flavor. My tub of generic grounds were lackluster on the weekends, and I struggled to get my ass to work. When I brewed Café Bustelo, my taste buds were dancing and singing! I went to repurchase this at my local Aldi store, and the price tag gave me life. With each cup, I was raised from the dead and got through every work shift seamlessly thereafter - graduation and beyond.
The scent of this espresso is incredible. As soon as you open the vacuum-sealed bag, the aroma rises into the air and warms your coffee-loving soul.
This coffee brand has truly engrained itself into my family. We are all addicts. My dad makes a cup of Moka using this espresso every day. Literally. Every 2pm, he's out in the kitchen brewing a cup.
So, if you are looking to brighten your day, have energy, and increase your credit score - keep an eye out for the bright yellow packaging and grab this on your next Aldi trip. You won't regret it! It's a steal. 6 out of 5 tote bags.
