Hey Guys! I know we’ve deviated a little from the content you’re used to! It’s been crazy over here in my neck of the woods. I wanted to get out there and bring you a coffee related post, since it’s been a little while. I’ll get there with this balance stuff, I promise!
I did a bad thing and discovered that I could get coffee delivered to me at work when I’m too lazy to actually walk anywhere, which is more often than not the case. Sadly though, my options are a little limited. I’m sure you guys may (or may not) remember the post I did on Wheely’s a couple months ago. I wasn’t too hot on it, and I haven’t been. Luckily they seem to be great sports and totally aware that you can’t please everyone all the time.
I didn’t take that as a “I won’t be back” sort of thing, but rather “I will find something that I like” situation. And I finally did! I was at work, far too lazy to be bothered to go somewhere close by. Can’t someone bring me coffee? After checking GrubHub I found that, yes, someone can bring me coffee. I was a little disappointed that the only coffee I could get delivered was Wheely’s, based on my past experience. But, I decided to take another chance since it had been a while and opted to get it delivered in an hour or so.
I was banking on the coffee not impressing and also not filling me up for lunch, so I ordered a danish too. I sat and waited- I was hungry and I really wanted my coffee. A little while later, I get a phone call from Wheely’s telling me that they didn’t have any danishes today and that they could replace them with muffins. I decided to take it in stride and opt for muffins.
When my totally nutritious lunch got to me, I found that they had left me a note on the box!
Aside from that, on the inside of the box was a free coffee card that I can redeem next time I go in! I’m pretty psyched. The only thing better than coffee is free coffee. Speaking of Coffee, they got it right this time! I think I’m picking up that I pretty much have to stir all the coffee I get before I drink it. This especially makes sense here because it’s about a 15 minutes drive from Wheely’s to my work.
My Mocha was very mellow, with a subtle nuttiness that lingered on the tongue. It really smelled fantastic and rich, with an innate bitterness. The coffee itself had some subtle bite to it with complimenting acidity to the sweetness of the mocha. Somehow my first impression was that it reminded me of Coconut milk. I’m not sure how that even makes sense in this context.
I was very pleased with this drink and I’ll make it a mission to find more things to like from Wheely’s, because I’m beginning to think they just simply do better at certain things. Or maybe, like with Fountain City, it’s all in the Barista. After all, I do seem to have my favorite Baristas when I frequent places. It’s only natural!
For the curious, the muffins were muffins. They certainly weren’t My Favorite Muffin level, but they weren’t terrible by any stretch. I enjoyed them immensely, and would have enjoyed them even more if I had some milk to have with them. You really can’t go wrong with blueberry muffins, especially not when they come with free coffee!
I’ll rate this experience with Wheely’s a:
I feel like they deserve a good rating this time, due to doing great with the coffee, having fantastic service and that note somehow melted my heart!
