If you're thinking about ordering some Mystic Monk Coffee for Christmas presents, you might just want to get you orders in as soon as you can to ensure that your items arrive before Christmas.

They still have some Jingle Bell Java, Christmas Blend, Candy Cane Hot Chocolate, and more currently available, as well as their great assortment of blends and flavors of coffee’s and tea’s.

If you can’t decide what flavor, they have the 9 Monks Sampler available. It contains 9 2 ounce samples for just $18.99 (plus tax and shipping). The available samples are: Mystic Monk Blend, Midnight Vigils Blend, Hermits Bold Blend, Cowboy Blend, Colombian Medium Roast, Decaf. Arabica, Carmel, Royal Rum Pecan, and Hazelnut.

So be sure to use my link to go to the Mystic Monk Coffee web site and get your order in before it’s too late to order for Christmas.

The "Doghouse" or the Happy House...It's Your Choice Gentlemen!

Chocolate Covered  Cherries from
Mystic Monk Coffee

Gentlemen, allow me to say...survival is a strong instinct. Very strong. Indeed.

If you don’t want to be in the proverbial “doghouse” this St. Valentine’s Day...and for several days thereafter...I have some good news!

The good monks at Mystic Monk Coffee have come to the rescue! Yours. Not mine. It’s a tad too late for an old over the hill bachelor of 59 such as yours truly to be rescued...but that’s a story for another time and one that I’ll just keep to myself.

Nevertheless...the good monks now have available just in time for St. Valentine’s Day their wonderful Chocolate Cherry Coffee, available in regular ground, decaffeinated ground, and whole bean regular. Their letter tells me that they are roasting it fresh as I type this.

Now maybe your sweet thing isn’t a coffee drinker...but is a chocolate lover...and is especially a chocolate covered cherries lover. I don’t blame her. I am suspicious of anyone who doesn’t like chocolate covered cherries. Especially these Chocolate Covered Cherries from Mystic Monk Coffee which their letter tells me are “real dried cherries, coated first with a layer of milk chocolate, and then finished with a layer of cherry flavored white chocolate.”

Stop drooling!

If you can’t make up your mind as to which one to get...then get both! Just order the Valentines Gift Set! It has 2 packages of Chocolate Covered Cherries, and 1 package of Chocolate Cherry Coffee, all tastefully packed in a beautiful red box.

See how easy that is? Get the gift set and you don’t even have to wrap it!

Or at the last minute you can always run over to the drug store and buy her one of those tired...lame..."I put no thought into this"...heart shaped box of chocolates that have been sitting in a warehouse since before Christmas.

So you can either be in the “doghouse”...or the happy’s up to you. I can lead the horse to water but I can’t make him drink! always....your purchase of Mystic Monk Coffee helps to support the monastery of the Carmelite Monks of Wyoming and this blogger!

Need Stocking Stuffer Gifts?

So, the Christmas season is upon us, and I have a few ideas to help you out with your gift giving from Mystic Monk Coffee. Gifts especially for the coffee lovers among your family, friends, and co-workers.

Have stockings to stuff at work of for family? Then consider Mystic Monk Coffee’s Sampler Packs. They have their “9 Monks Sampler Pack” available in four different combinations of 2 oz. Samples of their fine coffee.

First is the Extra Dark sampler pack which has 3 each of Mystic Monk Blend, Midnight Vigils Blend, and Hermits Bold Blend.

Then there is the Flavored sampler pack which has 3 each of Carmel, Royal Rum Pecan, and Hazelnut.

Next we have the Medium Roast sampler which has 3 each of Cowboy Blend, Colombian Medium Roast, and Decaf. Arabica.

Finally, there is the Variety sampler, which gives you one each of the coffees listed in the sampler packs above.

Of course, if you have a large office, or a large number of family and friends to whom you want to give a small gift, you can always go for the 30 Pack Sampler, which gives you the following 2 oz. Samplers: 4 x Mystic Monk Blend, 4 x Midnight Vigils Blend, 4 x Hermits' Bold Blend, 3 x Cowboy Blend, 3 x Medium Colombian, 3 x Decaffeinated Arabica, 3 x Hazelnut, 3 x Royal Rum Pecan, and 3 x Carmel.

Now, if you are like me, and can't decide what someone else would like, you can always take the easy route, and give your recipients a Mystic Monk Coffee Gift Card. Then they can choose what they like from the selection of Mystic Monk Coffee, tea, drinkware, religious gifts, and more.

Gift cards are available in $15, $25, $50, $75, and $100 amounts for your convenience.

Your purchase from Mystic Monk Coffee helps to support the monastery of the Carmelite Monks of Wyoming and this blogger.

Snickering Monk? It's Not What You Think!

One of the things I like in life is humor. I enjoy it immensely. After all, with a face like mine, you better learn what humor is and how to laugh really fast.

So, the good monks of The Carmelite Monks of Wyoming, who offer their great varieties of Mystic Monk Coffee, have shown that they also enjoy a little humor with the name of their flavored coffee, Snickering Monk Candy Bar Coffee. (I can somehow imagine a group of snickering monks in a corner by themselves.)

They describe Snickering Monk as:

"Rich chocolate, roasted peanuts and sweet caramel, combined with the finest 100% Arabica coffee make the Snickering Monk Candy Bar a coffee to remember. Add warm cream and sweeten for a delectable fall treat!"

The Snickering Monk is available in regular ground and whole bean, and in ground decaffeinated.

They also have available their Thanksgiving Blend well in time for the cooler weather.

It is described as follows:

"Initial grapefruit impressions give way and open up to panoramic complexity; The malt, dark chocolate, cloves and charred cedar notes quickly gain momentum and surge into an expansive and full-bodied aftertaste that slowly retires, leaving traces of caramel, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate. Versatile enough to be served with or without cream, this complex blend is the perfect accompaniment to any dessert."

The Thanksgiving Blend is available in regular ground and whole bean only.

So you may want to give one of both of these coffees a try.

Don't forget, they also have Monk Shots available in several varieties for those of you with single serve machines, and they have 15 varieties available in 5 Pound Bags for parishes and offices/

Either way, when you purchase Mystic Monk Coffee, your purchase helps to support the monastery of The Carmelite Monks of Wyoming.

Psst...Mother's Day Is Sneakin' Up On Ya!

Just in case you forgot (you didn't forget, did you?), Mother's Day falls on Sunday, May 11.

That's right. It's the time of year we all try to thank mom for giving us life....for sitting up with us when we were sick....bandaging those skinned knees....for being our chauffeur....for being our confidant....for straightening us out when we got out of line.

So, to help you show mom how much you appreciate her, you can give her something from Mystic Monk Coffee.

For instance, there is the Aurora Tea Gift Set. It come with Aurora Blend White Tea, Mystic Monk Blend Tea, and a stylish tea mug, all packed in a neat little pink basket (which mom can use for other things later).

If your mom loves flavored coffees, then the Amaretto flavored coffee may be just the ticket. The good monks have this to say about the Amaretto flavor:

Smooth and flavorful, our Amaretto flavor is full of almond nuttiness, and is especially good when made with cream and sugar.”

Amaretto is available in regular ground, whole bean regular, and in ground decaf.

If you can't decide what your mom would like from Mystic Monk Coffee, then give her something she will love. Give her a gift card from Mystic Monk Coffee. They are available in $15, $25, $50, $75, and $100. Then you can be sure that your mom gets exactly what she wants!

We can't ever pay our mom's back really. There is not enough time for us to really show her what she means. We need to try and show mom what she means to us while she's here. My mom is gone, but never a day passes without my thinking of her and missing her. I know she is in a far better place than we are, but I still wish she was here.

I know my mom would have loved getting Mystic Monk Coffee, because if ever there was a coffee fan, she was one. And she would have really liked knowing, that the purchase of Mystic Monk Coffee, helps to support the monastery of The Carmelite Monks of Wyoming.

That Time Of The Year...

It's that time of year again. It seems like the holidays get here faster and faster every year. My mom and dad both used to say how fast time goes by as you get older. They didn't even tell the half of it. It's actually faster than fast!

Already my employer has started cutting hours at work, and it is not a good time of the year for hours to get cut. Many of you know what I am talking about. Not just because of the holidays, but also with colder weather, and with winter soon starting in earnest, this is the time of the year when my expenses...and yours as well I am sure...tend to rise. A 30 hour work week just doesn't cut it.

So if you are thinking about buying some coffee, I'd appreciate it if you would click on my links (like the ones that follow) for Mystic Monk Coffee, and buy some coffee for yourself or for holiday gifts. Don't forget that they also have 5 pound bags available for your parish and office! It not only helps me out, but it helps support both the Carmelite Monks of Wyoming and their monastery. (Unfortunately, there is no commission for wholesale purchases, but there is for coffee subscriptions, tea subscriptions, etc.)

I'd also like to ask you to consider taking a look at the products I have available from Zazzle at "Faith of the Fathers Catholic Gifts". There are several poster prints, mousepads, mugs, and greeting cards available and all with a Catholic theme. New this year are some holiday poster prints and cards featuring wonderful art by James Tissot.

I'd like to thank all of you who have used my links to shop and buy, and for making donations via PayPal. I don't know who you all are, but God does, and I especially ask His blessings for you (as well as I do for all my blog visitors) in my prayers.

Thank you once again. May God Bless you and Our Lady keep you in Her care!

Easy Gift Buying...Gift Cards!

The best and easiest way to handle this dilemma, is to simply buy a gift card or gift certificate. They can be purchased in amounts from $10 to $100 or more. That way, the person receiving the gift card can then redeem it for whatever he or she wants. Problem solved, and everybody is happy.

First, from Mystic Monk Coffee. are gift cards available in amounts from $15 to $100. The recipient can choose some outstanding coffees and teas from the Carmelite Monks of Wyoming, and you can help the monks in raising the money they need to build their monastery.

If you know someone who loves books...or music...or movies....or anything else Barnes and Noble offers, then their gift card is just what the doctor ordered.

There are also some great books, movies, gifts and more available at The Catholic Company . They have 2 available, The Catholic Company Gift Card [$25.00 Gift Card] and  The Catholic Company Gift Card [$50.00 Gift Card] .
