You Have Heard of Tea Bags but What About Steeped Coffee?

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


At first blush you might think that's a cup of tea. Upon closer inspection, you'd find it to be Steeped Coffee!!! Perhaps you have heard of it before, but I assure you I have not!! It took me just one try to become and instant fan though. As some of you know, I am a huge coffee lover. Huge.


Steeped Coffee comes in a variety of flavors. You can get light, medium, dark or French roast.  You can also get decaf, which I always keep in the house for company who requests it.


Speaking of guests, it's always a treat for them when I serve this drink. They are inevitably surprised to see it coming to them on a tray with a string hanging from the side like a tea bag! It's a great conversation starter and instantly puts everyone at ease (which makes this perfect for the office too!).


I like all of the flavors, but the Driftwood Blend, I think, is my absolute favorite. It's a hearty French Roast and I let it steep until the color is a dark, rich brown.


As a complete aside, but while I'm thinking of it...let me just say I am glad I took a picture of the coffee cup in the very first picture of this post, because I dropped it and it broke. Honestly, I just had it made, full of pictures of my kids holding the new baby in the fam. (my daughter's baby girl), and I dropped it and broke it. Grr. Luckily, we have no shortage of coffee cups in this house, but ya' know!! Sidetracking here, I know, but seeing the photo brought it all back. There is no Hakuna Matata in a broken brand new coffee cup (and yes, we did just go see the Lion King 😊).

So, how do you make it? Easy peasy:
  1. Heat filtered water to 205 degrees, or just below boiling
  2. Place a Steeped Bag at the bottom of a standard 10oz mug
  3. Pour hot water over the Steeped Bag until the mug is half full
  4. Dip and dunk Steeped Bag 20 to 30 times over 1 minute
  5. Leavthe Steeped Bag in, and let steep for 5 to 7 minutes or more to taste
  6. Remove Steeped Bag
Then you can drink it as is, or you can make a coffee recipe. Steeped Coffee has quite a few to choose from (click here for coffee recipes), or you can create your own.

  1. Not for me. Coffee disagrees with me (though I love the smell).

  2. This is a fast and easy way to make coffee and I bet it does taste good. To bad you broke the mug. :(

  3. Driftwood blend doesn't sound appetizing by the title though. That stinks that the Disney cup broke.

  5. Though I don't drink coffee myself, the idea of steeped coffee in a (coffee?)bag sounds so interesting! What a cool concept.

  7. I need to try this brand. I love coffee so much (and tea) and always steep my tea but never have my coffee.

  11. I never heard of this before and even seen this anywhere, but heck, I am huge coffee lover too! I would love to have this too. :)

  12. I have heard of that, but never knew what brand. I'll have to think about getting these for work. Boss man thinks everyone should be like him. He doesn't like coffee, so no coffee.

  13. You know I'm a tea girl through and through, but I like the idea of keeping steeped coffee on hand. Jason only drinks coffee during the cold months, so these bags would come in handy for when guests come over and want a fresh cup.

    Speaking of cups, sorry about yours. I have a ton of mugs too, but 3 are my favorite and I would be pretty upset if any of them broke.

  14. I have never seen this before, but it is something my husband might enjoy as well as my daughter. I am not a huge coffee drinker but they are.
