Unbound Luxury-KEMOSABE Chocolate Hazelnut Instant Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 11/27/2016

My wife, Tori, and I, earlier this week, agreed that this weekend we would go shopping for a new car. As the week progressed we reminisced about the “clunker” cars we brought when we first got married and the many used cars we had purchased over the years out of necessity. Towards the end of the week we had discussions on buying a new car, a new luxury car, perhaps a Mercedes, or a Lexus, Acura, BMW or a Volvo. Last night we agreed to buy a Mercedes, a silver GLE 350 SUV to be exact.

“Welcome to Mercedes,” the well-dressed salesman announced as he extended his hand towards me moments after we entered the Mercedes showroom.

“Hello, my name is Blake and this is my wife, Toni,” I replied as I shook his hand.

“Nice to meet both of you. My name is Alex. Welcome to Mercedes showroom. Please feel free to look around at your leisure. May I get you some coffee?”

“That would be great, Alex,” Tori replied. “It’s 9:30 AM and I haven’t had a cup yet today.”

“We have a variety of flavors,” Alex offered. “Chocolate cinnamon, mocha, chocolate hazelnut and chocolate irish cream.”

“They all sound delicious,” Tori replied. “I think I’ll have the chocolate hazelnut.”

“And for you, Blake?”

“I’ll also have the chocolate hazelnut.”

To make a long story short, over the course of the next hour or so, Tori and I met with Alex in his office, discussing the various features of the GLE 350 SUV and enjoying our chocolate hazelnut instant coffee. We left by telling Alex we were certain that we were going to buy the car, but needed a day to think on it.

“What a beautiful SUV,” I stated to my wife as we exited the parking lot of Mercedes. “I love the sporty, sleek shape of the car,” I added with enthusiasm. “Now that car defines unbound luxury.”

“Yes it does honey. But I’ll tell you what else defines unbound luxury.”


“That Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut instant coffee that Alex gave us. That was the best tasting instant coffee I think I ever had.”

The next day we purchased the SUV and a box of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut instant coffee on the way home.
