Life is Good! Coffee Review (and Giveaway)

Disclosure: We received coffee samples to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

We tried these three flavors of Life is Good Coffee
Life is Good Coffee is all around, well, good. It comes in (3) different smooth roasts:

  • Light Hearted 
  • Happy Medium
  • Dark & Daring

and (2) different flavors:
  • S'more to Love
  • Banana Bread Bliss
All of the coffees are 100% Arabica beans, and UTZ Certified to promote sustainable farming.

The flavors are smooth and delicious, like you expect your coffee to taste. I like a medium roast, so my favorite was the Happy Medium. Hubby likes a stronger, darker roast, so he favored the Dark & Daring. Right this second, I'm nursing a cup of the S'more to Love, and it's perfect for warming me up after just having returned from a school run in (-6) degree weather.

Another reason to feel good about the coffee (besides the tasty flavor) is that it is part of the Life is Good Kids Foundation, and 10% of net profits go to kids in need. The donations help to provide training and support to childcare professionals whose main job is to help children under their care feel safe, loved, and joyful. The company has a motto of spreading optimism and positive change, and to date has raised over $11 million for kids in need, principally through Life is Good products.

Each bag of coffee retails for $7.99 and can be found in local grocery stores, online, and at the Life is Good Store.

You can learn more about Life is Good by visiting their website here.
You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and/or Instagram

Two lucky winners will get an assortment of coffee to try (assortment choices random and up to the company). US entrants only.

S'more to Love sounds really good and it is wonderful that some of the proceeds go to help kids in need.

Robin said...

Just started drinking coffee a few months ago and now it is the BEST part of my morning. My mom prefers the light roast and I think I do, too. If I drink too much caffeine I get all jittery on the inside. I can have several cups of the light roast and be A-Okay.

I have never drank coffee, but my Hubs loves his morning coffee. I know he has never tried this brand, but if The flavors are smooth and delicious, I know he would love it.

Dorothy Teel said...

I could not start my day without a great cup of coffee, I am a light roast coffee drinker and I like flavored coffees at time. It think that 10% of sales goes to Life is Good Kids foundation for kids in need and they have contributed more that 11 million for kids in need. Great job.

I think I like Happy Medium as I don't like strong coffee :)
