Last year, I had the opportunity to visit Smucker’s Headquarters in Ohio and learn more about the company.  Folgers is one of the brands we learned about at Smucker’s Headquarters.  My parents love Folgers!  In fact, Folgers is the preferred coffee of choice of my parents!  We were excited to receive samples of the new Millstone coffee and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup Portion Packs, as well as a Keurig Single-Cup Brewer.

In October 2010, the makers of Millstone coffee and Folgers Gourmet Selections announced the launch of six delicious varieties of coffee now available in K-Cup portion packs for use with Keurig Single-Cup Brewers.  The new line allows consumers to enjoy their everyday morning routine by experiencing the same premium coffee they love one perfectly brewed cup at a time.

Millstone coffee and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup portion packs are made from the same high quality beans already available on the shelf in stores in over 50 blends.  The portion packs offer the exceptional taste that both brand’s passionate coffee drinkers have come to expect.  The superior taste is the result of both brand’s precise “bean to cup” process that involves an intricate method of growing, roasting, and blending to ensure each cup of coffee delivers a unique coffee drinking experience.

Millstone and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup portion packs are available in the following flavors:

Millstone Breakfast Blend (Fair Trade Certified)

Millstone Hazelnut Cream

Folgers Gourmet Selections Black Silk

Folgers Gourmet Selections Lively Colombian

Folgers Gourmet Selections Lively Colombian Decaf

Folgers Gourmet Selections Vanilla Biscotti

Millstone and Folgers understands how hectic mornings can be and the growing need to simplify the day,” said Maribeth Badertscher, Vice President, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company.  “That is why we are thrilled to offer the new line of Millstone coffee and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup portion pack options that allow time-pressed consumers the opportunity to enjoy a quick and quality cup of coffee.”

Millstone and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup portion packs are available nationwide in 12 and 18 count packs (MSRP $6.99-$9.99), online in a 24 count pack (MSRP $13.95), and at club stores in an 80 count pack (MSRP $33.99).  For more information on Millstone and Folgers Gourmet Selections please visit the brands’ websites at www.millstone.com and www.folgers.com.

The Keurig Single Cup brewing system allows consumers to enjoy one perfectly brewed cup of coffee one at a time.  For more information on Keurig, visit www.keurig.com.

MY THOUGHTS

I think this is a fantastic idea and am excited to share information about it on The Mommy-Files!  The K-Cup portion packs and the Keurig Single Cup brewing system is perfect for anybody who wants coffee, but doesn’t want to make a whole pot of coffee!  It’s also great if you have two coffee drinkers (or more) in your home who want different flavored cups of coffee!  Thanks to Folgers, Millstone, and Keurig for great products!!!

    The only tip I have is to get up earlier.

    Get everything ready the night before so you have extra minutes in the morning to sleep in or relax with a cup of coffee by yourself or while chatting with the Hubby/Kids!

    My best tips is first to get up about an 45 minutes before everyone else in our house. I’ll make a cup of coffee, sit, relax and wake up, while watching the news.
    The night before, I set up my clothing, kids lunches, get kids to get their clothing & backpacks ready. All this I find helps us out in the morning too.
    Thanks so much for this wonderful giveaway.

    When I know it’s going to be a rough morning, I flip one of my blood pressure caps over & pre-load my morning cocktail of pills, set all of my clothes out and set the coffee maker to auto. I’m never quite able to focus until after half a cup of coffee.

  24. Tari L. says:

    I have my kids get their thing ready the night before. A nice hot, caffinated drink in the morning helps me wake up and get moving.

    Preparation is huge in our house for a smooth morning, having a plan and as much done ahead of time; ie lunches, clothes picked out, breakfast plan makes it almost effortless. My cup of coffee comes first and is a must every morning. Without it, no amount of preparation could get us out the door on time.

    The best way for me to avoid a hectic morning is to get as much of the work done the night before. Amazing how much smoother the morning goes when I spend a few minutes in the evening. A smooth cup of coffee helps because then my husband is a much happier man. He’s the coffee drinker in the family.

  82. Coffee is my sanity in the morning.

    I get all the kids out of the house, off to school/nanny then I am at work by 7am.
    Computers get turned on, my plant might get water and then I’m off to the coffee machine. My boss has learned not to speak with me until 7:30… when the coffee has kicked in.

    Only then will my sanity be restored.

    ONLY then…..

    To make the morning as hectic free as possible do as much as possible the night before. Organize clothing for the kids, line up shoes, make lunches, get back packs ready! A good smelling hot rich cup of coffee will help you to wake up and be able to focus on your day. I read some place that the smell of coffee even aids in getting you awake!

    My trick sounds counter-productive, but I actually get up 30 minutes earlier than I need to. This way, I can lay in bed and watch TV for a bit, or hit the snooze (sometimes BOTH!) before getting up and I’m not so rushed. I also make sure that when I get home, my purse, keys, etc. are all on the table by the front door (along with anything else I need to take to work) so I’m not hunting for them in the morning.

    Also, having my coffeemaker programmed to have my coffee ready is definite incentive to get out of bed Nothing like waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee! 🙂

    My tips and tricks to manage a hectic morning is to plan ahead of time. The night before, try to pick out school clothes, pack lunches, organized backpacks and leave them near the front door, so the kids don’t forget anything. Also, it is good to have an idea of what you plan to make for breakfast in the morning.

    A fresh gourmet cup of coffee in the morning helps me be more alert and get my day started. Its warm, soothing and flavorful, that jolt of caffeine gives me the energy I need to perk up and get moving.

    My best tips for a morning are to work as a team with my hubby! The more we work together and share the roles of getting breakfasts and lunches ready and our son ready the quicker we all can get out the door… Coffee keeps me sane throughout the day!!

  154. Jean says:

    I do like coffee in the morning. It makes me slow down and relax a little. As for my morning, I have my son’s backpack ready to go the night before and set by the door. My kids like Sesame Street and since they can’t yet tell time, they know when to get dressed, put on socks and shoes, and go to the bathroom based on which segment is on. (Example: socks and shoes on when Elmo’s World comes on) This way I can get ready and pack lunches without having to nag the kids to get ready – they know what they need to do.

    I tackle mornings with a routine! Up, let the dogs out, start coffee, get toddler up and have her use the potty/change the diaper, breakfast for everyone (including coffee!), let the dogs in, get dressed and get going!

    I refuse to take any calls or answer any emails until I’ve had at least one cup of coffee (gourmet or otherwise). I try to wake up early enough that I have the first hour of my morning all to myself.

    I always make sure to set everything out I need the night before. That way I don’t have to rush A good cup for coffee just sets my day off righ. It gets me motivated to get things done!

    My best tip for less hectic mornings is to lay out clothes and make lunches the night before. I look forward to my morning cup of coffee, and consider it a treat to have a flavored variety. This would be perfect for sending me off to work in a happy mood! My husband would enjoy it too, I’m sure!

  192. trishden says:

    Hello, I plan ahead, if we have a hectic morning scheduled, I get outfits out the night before, determine who’s shower first and the coffee gets set up the night before, so we just have to turn the machine on. I for one don’t really wake up until I have my coffee. I may go through the motions, but it’s that second or third sip of coffee before I’m raring to go. Thanks for a great giveaway!

We set out clothes the night before and make sure bookbags are packed. A fresh gourmet cup of coffee definitely helps me wake up and get the kids out the door!

    I plan as much as I can for the night before: lunches, attire and my work bag. This may take away some time in the evening before but saves what seems to be an hour in that moring as I have no recollection of events before I have my cup of Joe!

  410. Joan Haigh says:

    I find that getting as much as possible the night before helps make the morning run smoother. Get everyones bag organised, clothes set out, extra things needed for the next day ready. Even a simple thing like having one place where the car keys are kept help.

  411. Flossie K. says:

    As others mentioned in their posts, I try to do as much as possible the evening before. I make sure the kitchen is clean, fill the coffeemaker, lay out my clothes, and make notes for the next day. At the crack of dawn, all I have to do is hit the “on” button and the morning is started. A great cup of hot coffee is more important to me than breakfast. I would be really, really cranky all day without my java!

  412. Stacy says:

    I make sure I pack lunches and get all the school papers together the night before. This cuts down on the last minute running around looking for things! I also find that making sure I have time to read the paper with a cup of coffee helps me start my day calmer!

    The best way for a non chaotic morning is to prepare the night before, crockpot oatmeal is yummy and of course not needing to brew a whole pot would be great. A gourmet cup of coffee recharges depleted batteries, Oh CAFFEINE how I love thee and makes MOM pleasant 🙂 silenttributary at yahoo dot com

  424. Main: My tips for less stress in the morning, is to do as much the night before as possible. I lay out my kids clothes, pack backpacks and put by the door, and even get breakfast stuff picked out and ready, so all we have to do is get up and everything is ready to be done. I still need my daily caffiene though, and love the taste of chocolate coffee and french vanilla. It just helps wake me up and get me going!

    with 2 kids and 2 dogs all mornings are hectic, we run everyday even on the weekends. i am never myself without my coffee its like gas in the tank for me., i usually set up my coffee the night b4. i also pack lunches,so they are ready in the am. this would be so wonderful for me because i am the only coffee drinker in the house, and sure waste a lot of coffee.

    I try and do as much as possible the night before, like laying out clothes, making sure all papers for school are in their backpacks and making sure I am ready first so I can make sure that everyone else is where they need to be on time. I also get up about an hour early and this is where my first cup of coffee comes in. There is something so soothing about a fresh cup of hot coffee and the silence of the kitchen which gives me such a sense of peace and a I can do anything today feeling. Right before I wake up everyone else, I put everything on the kitchen table, bowls, cereal, glasses so that everyone can start right in on breakfast.

    My best tip is Mommy needs to be calm, cool and collected for the rest of the house to run smoothly, so I get up a half hour before everyone else. Start the coffee, turn on the local news, get online to check my email etc… and have that first morning cup of coffee. this gives me 15 – 20 minutes of absolute peace and quiet and “me’ time, giving me the energy and calm I need to get everyone else up and running without being in a daze.

    My kids are trained to do everything the night before. We also have a white board on our fridge where they know to write down what they need bought, brought, or signed…. and by what days. That way nobody stops with their hand on the doorknob on the way out to the bus stop and says, “Oh yeah – I forgot to tell you. I need…..” and I miss the rest because I’m too busy strangling them 🙂

    Oh yeah – coffee is the ONLY way I can wake up in the morning. When we have no electricity because of a storm, I’m so desperate that I’ll use the grill to get water hot and then I’ll put in some instant coffee granules
