Good Morning, Coffee

I never wanted to be a coffee drinker. For years I was the one at Starbucks ordering the chai latte or the hot chocolate. But, after getting married and the chaos of life started to take over I slowly began to start my mornings with a small cup; lots of sugar, lots of cream. Like any addiction it became progressively worse and now I don't care how it's made, I MUST HAVE my coffee in the morning. I alternate between coffee with a little milk or a espresso with lots of milk depending on how much time I have in the morning. Sometimes I wake up whining about being tired and my beloved husband will venture downstairs and return with mug full of steaming liquid gold. I love those mornings.
This is the newest addition to our habit. A 9-shot espresso maker. It makes the yummiest lattes but 4 1/2 shots of espresso for each of us in the morning is a lot so we save this for desperate to wake up mornings (such as this morning). Some days our kitties think it's fun to torture us at 5am and because they know how to open the bedroom door we can't escape their cries and need for attention. Anybody looking for a pet? I've got 3 to choose from...just kidding...kind of.
Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has the best coffee. Less bitter than other brands. This one in particular was a birthday gift and is delicious.

So, are you a coffee addict like me? How do you drink it? Do you have a complicated order and does the barista a Starbucks have your order waiting for you when you walk in the door?


  1. I LOVE coffee! It's the best, isn't it? :)

    Usually I have a vanilla soy latte that I make at home every day. When I go to a coffee place I usually get a mocha with whipped cream.

  2. Nothing beats a good cup of coffee. My day would never start without one. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
