Coffee Coffee Bo Boffee: A Review of Market District Coffees (and a Giveaway!)

I like coffee.

A lot.

But I had to cut back recently. I drink one cup in the morning, and if I’m feeling like I need it or if I’m feeling frisky, I’ll have an afternoon cup as well. It’s been good for me, and I adjusted really well to less caffeine. But one thing I’ve learned in this whole “let’s drink less coffee” thing is that I want good coffee for my 1-2 cups per day.

I was recently asked if I’d like to try out Market District’s new coffees, and I said, “WELL YEAH!” In my hunt for good coffee, I’m definitely up for trying new things. I haven’t been disappointed.

Mmm, Coffee

I was sent two medium roasts, Moka Java Blend and Kenya, and one flavored coffee, French Vanilla. I’m super pleased.

Right now my favorite is the Moka Java Blend. It has a deep, rich flavor that really helps perk me up in the morning. It also makes my kitchen and office smell amazing. That’s one thing I have noticed about my good coffee hunt: I am super sensitive to the smell of the coffee. I can tell if I’m going to like it before I even taste it.

As for the French Vanilla, I love it as my afternoon or early-evening/post-dinner cup of coffee. It’s light, it’s fun, and it tastes yummy.


Of note: I drink all of my coffee black, the way God intended.

I’m actually interested in trying some of their dark roasts, like the Espresso or the French Roast. I think I’m going to grab a bag or two after we make our way through what we have now. I may also grab a bag of the decaffeinated Breakfast Blend. I never understood why people would drink decaffeinated coffee until I cut back my caffeine consumption. Now I miss the taste of coffee!

Would you like three bags of Market District Coffee? Good! I’m giving them away!

  1. If I have straight coffee it needs to be half milk and sugar or poured over ice! Hubby drinks it black though so it would go to good use:)

  2. Straight up BLACK. Why dilute the deliciousness that is coffee?

    (congrats on the marathon. i truly enjoyed reading your recap. my uncle has run the NYC marathon 32 times. i always always cried while cheering on the runners. always.)

  3. I love my coffee with vanilla cinnamon creamer, and lots of it. I have to have coffee that is sweet cannot drink it straight black.

  4. I LOVE COFFEE. French pressed with heavy cream and two tablespoons of grass-fed butter. Every morning. It’s a must. I, too, love good coffee. I would love to try this!

  5. I drink my coffee with lots of cream and sugar. Not strong at all. Caffein doesn’t really do anything for me, but I drink it caffinated anyway.

  6. French-pressed with lots of organic half-n-half. It’s the thing that gets me out of bed in the morning. Soooo good!

  7. I love coffee too! I can also only have 1-2 cups per day. Heavy whipping cream for me though ;-). Btw breakfast blend is wonderful! I have never tried the Mona java but it sounds terrific! Shared on fb.

  8. Coffee is a MUST around here. The Gazebo blend from Starbucks was the favorite for years and inspired hoarding. Peaberry is a hit. Other than that–any coffee, all coffee is welcome. (except hazelnut and most of the flavored types)

  9. I drink my brewed coffee the same as you: Black. Mmmm. I will occasionally get a heavy, sweet, espresso based drink from a coffee shop, such as a latte or macchiato, but typically, it’s just plain black coffee for me.

  10. Strong, with just a smidgen of half-and-half or milk.
    But in the fall, it’s gotta have pumpkin spice creamer, and lots of it. :)

  11. I like my coffee with just a little bit of milk, but I also drink it black. It really depends on the blend of coffee and my mood. Also, I give up all caffeine during Lent and can relate to not having that morning coffee. Sometimes the smell is all I need to get past those initial caffeine withdrawal headaches and crankiness. Sense memory is a very powerful thing.

  12. I cold-brew my coffee in a french press overnight, and drink it iced in a travel mug with some of whatever creamer exists in our fridge at the moment – anything from something as basic as whole milk (sometimes chocolate!) to our current selection, Bailey’s Creme Brulee

  13. I love making coffee with my french press, then adding just a splash of home made almond milk. It’s the best.

  14. Hot. Can’t get into iced coffee no matter how hard I try. And just a little bit of sugar.

    Sometimes I get crazy and do half mocha and half house blend at my local gas station.

  15. I like my coffee black too. Okay – every now and then I will dribble a bit of Bailey’s in it, but for everyday drinking – black and strong!!

  16. I drink coffee all the time! I am a graduate student and coffee is what keeps me going while going to school and working full-time. I drink it in the morning and several cups in the evening! I would love to try this coffee!!

  17. I love coffee! Kona is the best, but I’m always looking for something that is great but not as expensive. I put natural vanilla creamer in my coffee. Yum!

  18. As my name states I am a latte and espresso lover. My grinder died recently so I have been relying on Peets Espresso, already ground.

    Two days ago I picked up a bag of Market District Espresso (my Peets order isn’t due until Monday and I am out). It was a mistake. The coffee is not espresso grind. No matter how tightly I pack my portafilter, the water speeds through.

    This is not espresso.
