Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 2

My coffee flavour is Grasshopper Pie. I have no idea what Grasshopper pies is. So, as I listen to the soft gurgle and trickle of my coffee brewing I do a fast Google search. Google shows a pastel coloured no-bake mousse pie with a chocolate crumb crust.

That first sip reveals none of the flavour that I was expecting. There are no notes of chocolate, no nutty tones and it isn’t creamy. It is a smooth sip but I taste a light minty flavour that confuses me. It isn’t an overly bitter coffee and there is no lingering after taste. Sadly, it is a dull cup of coffee today.

If we were having coffee, I would share the link to my coffee post last weekend in case you want to check it out… Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 1. I would also explain that this year at Brewing Coffee, Twisting Words & Breaking Pencils it a year of coffees.

If we were having coffee, I would ask how 2022 is going for you so far? The beginning of my year has been restful which is a great start in my opinion. I took the first week off work but I am back at it in a couple of days.

If we were having coffee, I would ask if you are a new year’s resolution person? I am not, at least not in the typical fashion. For me, I don’t make a resolution but I do assign the year a word. I started this in 2018 and it is an activity that stuck for me. Previous years have been assigned words like transformation, hope, goals and health & happiness. This year’s word is success for successes however big or small. So, I wish you a successful 2022.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I have let my novel sit for the month of December so I can look at it with fresh eyes sometime in the near future. I am waiting for my last round of edit reads to finish up and get back to me. Once that I happens I will go through it and then it is off to Beta readers for advanced reviews. So, exciting. In addition, I have made a start at a sequel. Just going slow with it for now but I have set a writing plan up for the year so I need to kick my writing into gear. Hmm, what else about writing can I share? I submitted my master’s application and will hear back on that in March. In the meantime, I am taking some webinars and joined an online writing conference for later in the year.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you that since joining Goodreads I have really been enjoying being an active part of that community. I have been completing reviews on the books that I am reading and sharing those reviews on Goodreads. I was surprised to find that I really enjoy writing reviews. I look forward to completing a few more reviews this year. If you are active on Goodreads you can find me at

Well, if we were having coffee, it would be time for me to pass you the coffee pot and sit back and listen to your coffee news.

  1. Hi Shari.
    You must have a subscription to all these different coffees. They would be wasted on me I fear as I can’t taste much difference in coffees. But teas, the taste of teas are mild enough for me to taste the differences and I enjoy the taste more than coffee. Plus I can drink it pretty much all I like where even light coffee starts tearing into my stomach pretty quickly so I barely finish 2 cups a day.
    You amaze me. After even the lighter writing work I do, I’m often to brain-drained to think about another story for a while but here you are taking a break from one to start another.
    I’m so looking forward to seeing that beta version of your newest story.
    I predict a great 2022 for the Marshall family.

    1. Hello Gary, do you know what just happened? As I was reading about your preference for tea I started to think about my year of coffees and a few teas would be a great idea. I have a taster pack from David’s tea with 12 flavours in it. I think that I will include those at some point this year. Thank you for the inspiration.

      I love getting lost in a good story idea, mine or someone else’s idea.

      Just waiting for my Christmas reader to get back to me and then I will be in touch about forwarding my story to you.

      Thanks for stopping in. Heading your way now for a virtual coffee/tea.


  2. You are a master of describing scents and taste, I have often thought about that while reading your blog! A year of coffee in the virtual world sounds like a great idea. I am making it a priority to mak a coffee share every weekend, and most of the time that is it, I sometimes post more, but rarely. Life is busy for most of us parents, right? As it should be. Looking forward to having coffee with you soon again. Cheers to a successful 2022!

    1. Thanks for stopping in Maria. I look forward to virtual coffees with you. Yes, you are right about a busy parenting life. We will miss it though when those little ones demand less of our time… Have a great week.

  3. Here’s to a great 2022. I’ve always known grasshopper pie to definitely be mint infused. I’m not always a fan of flavored coffee as far as my brewed coffee goes. It would have to be subtle, no fruit or nut flavors…lol. I would do mint, or chocolate or something like that.

    1. Thanks for stopping in Kirstin. I actually have a couple of mint chocolate flavoured coffees, haha. I’m not a big mint fan but they aren’t a bad coffee to sip.

      Have a great week.
