Walt Disney World 50 for 50: Cup of Disney

In 2014 it was announced that Joffrey's Coffee and Tea Co. would begin releasing some of the Disney coffee blends for home consumption. Available in their stores and online, it was a chance for you to have a little reminder of your favorite restaurant or resort in your cup at home. Not the blissful sit on your porch and dream about your last vacation moment, as much as we'd all love to have one of those each day, but more of a lingering memory in your tumbler on your way to work, getting the kids ready for school, or caught in traffic on the interstate somewhere. Enough to put a smile on your lips even if you don't recognize it.

For me, it was also a way to engage someone else in the Gazette. We had done weekly news recaps or questions of the week with a plethora of talented writers and bloggers from other corners for a while. The Gazette even featured a second regular writer for a time. As all good things must though, it came to an end. This allowed my wife, Aileen, to actually give us her insights into how each coffee ranked in her mind.

I'm not going to post all 23 reviews directly here, but I am including her final ranking, and yes we're aware that there are very few from outside of Walt Disney World, that was intentional. We may revisit with some cups of Disneyland joe at some point, but that's not today. If you're looking for a new coffee to try from Walt Disney World, a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary at home, we invite you take a gander at the reviews below. If you are unlike me, and actually like the taste of coffee, I assure you that you will find something to please your morning palate with in Aileen's reviews.
