Powered By Caffeine: Our Water Issue Via Joffrey’s The Wave Blend

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Magic at Home, WDW Blog, WDW Food

Here’s how Joffrey’s The Wave blend helped inspire our June 2021 water-themed issue…

How many cups of coffee can you make from one bag of Joffrey’s? To the calculator!

16 oz of beans in a bag of Joffrey’s, and a recommended preparation of 2 TBs per 6 oz of water… that’s…

96 oz of pipin’ hot coffee, or three-quarters of a gallon—also known as 16 Disney mugs full of the good stuff.

Wait… if I’m drinking 3/4 of a gallon… and I’m just the editor… yes, there are in fact multiple gallons of coffee going into each issue of WDW Magazine.

That’s a lot of coffee… and a lot of water. No wonder we came up with a splish-splashin’ water issue in June!

And the perfect blend to power our team through planning this issue? Joffrey’s The Wave. It is made from 100% Specialty Grade Arabica Beans via sustainable farms in Sumatra. Now that’s a brew we can feel good about.

In case you missed it, here are a few June issue highlights, brought to you by gallons, yes, gallons, of coffee.

Disney Wish Sneak Peek

Our CEO, Stephanie Shuster, was invited to a media sneak preview of everything  Disney Wish. The new ship will be the biggest in the fleet and has some very exciting entertainment onboard.

Adventure onboard includes dining with Marvel characters, sipping drinks in the new Star Wars-inspired lounge, and taking a raft trip through Disney’s very first attraction at sea.

There’s just too much to cover here, so you’ll have to check out Stephanie’s article in our June issue to get the deep-dive.

When River Country Was a Thing

Do you remember River Country?

I didn’t. It shut down just a few years before my Disney trip, and now it mostly lives in fond memories and terrible YouTube videos of so-called urban explorers trespassing on the shut-down waterpark.

I wanted to celebrate the life of River Country, and leave those empty slid videos in the dust.

My resulting article is what River Country was actually all about… including Goofy waterskiing on Bay Lake? Yep. That happened.

Rainy Days at Magic Kingdom

Some water at Walt Disney World is the kind you didn’t plan on wading through.

This is Florida, so a rain cloud could be looming at any moment. I’ve even seen something like an Eyeore-style personal raincloud hovering over just a couple of buildings.

Our Discovering New Magic writer, Allyson Koerner, showed us how a rainy day can turn into very unique experiences at the parks.

Joffrey’s The Wave Blend

The Wave is a restaurant located in The Contemporary Resort, where Joffrey’s The Wave blend is served each morning to guests heading out to Magic Kingdom and beyond.

If this blend can put together the ultimate Disney World water issue for our team, then I’ll wager it’ll keep you hopping all the way down the monorail.

You can bring The Wave blend home by ordering here. Give it a sip while perusing our water issue to get the full authentic experience of being on the WDW Magazine team. 

Joffrey’s was kind enough to provide me with a bag of The Wave coffee to try (and kindly keep me going through morning meetings). All opinions are my own. For example, The Wave blend is good, but my jam is really the Jazzy Java blend. See? Opinions!
