Up until last year I started my working day with a visit to the local Starbucks which was across the street of our office building. As a New Year’s resolution to myself I promised to myself that I was going to cut down on some expenses and so I started making my morning coffee at home and just bring it to the office. The arrangement is okay enough. I can manage to produce a decent cup each time that I make coffee. There are times though when you would really prefer getting coffee from Starbucks. I’m sure there are those who are going to disagree with me on this, but I prefer their coffee over any other coffee shop. So in order to indulge myself a little I give myself a treat once every week when I get my coffee from there.
Coffee in a Box– Last week when it was time for me to indulge in my weekly Starbucks coffee I noticed a guy getting his order from the counter. It was in a box and I became curious about what was in it. “What was that?” I asked the barista and he explained that it was the Coffee Traveler which was their container used for carrying drinks for a group of people.
How Much is a Starbucks Coffee Traveler?– I was really curious about the Traveler. First of all I was fascinated by the fact that you can carry a lot of their high quality drink with it. It can fill up about 12 8 ounce cups. You can get it for about $12, which is a very affordable price considering that you are getting so much with it. I was so curious with the Traveler that I wanted to try it out. So I forgot all about my promise. With an officemate of mine we bought a Coffee Traveler and we brought it back to the office. It became a huge sensation right away. We gave away the coffee to everyone that we met and there was plenty of left for us to enjoy.
What’s Included– Aside from a the huge carton box that serves as the container for the coffee you also get a stack of cups for letting everyone getting a taste of your coffee and as much sugar and creamer packages that you can carry. I think that this is the perfect thing to order if there is a meeting in the office and you want everyone holding their own cup as you start pouring coffee from that box of yours.
I got to take home the box as well afterwards because I was really curious about it. I knew of course that it couldn’t be just made from cardboard. I took it apart after that and I saw that there was a huge mylar bag inside it that can contain more than the usual amount that they put in. That mylar bag can come in handy s well when you need a portable cobtainer for water and other liquids.
