Happy Coffee day, I wonder what I got under the coffee tree. Should I go sing coffee carols to all my neighbors? They would probably think I need to quick trip to the local psych ward. My parents would probably shake their heads in disbelief when they hear the coffee edition to “Oh Christmas Tree” (Oh Coffee Bean has a nice ring to it).
So to be serious about this subject for today, my question is “How do YOU take your coffee? My answer is one of three ways: Warning there may be affiliate links ahead
1) When I am at home, I have a Keurig coffeemaker. If you do not have one, you are missing a treat. I have all my coffee stuff ready and raring to go. I have my favorite Longaberger mug, called a Jumbo Mug (you would think that as a Longaberger Home Consultant, I would remember the actual name of this retired product). I fill up my Keurig coffee maker, which is a downsized version of the one I use to have for a 10 oz. cup size. I use a vanilla Starbucks K-cup(my current choice of the day). While I am waiting on my coffee, I am making my Black and white mixture (wait for it) and put in my mug: Sweet cream or Mudslide creamer, My Your Inspiration at Home chocolate powder (any chocolate powder or syrup will do), no sugar, because the chocolate powder and creamer is sweet enough. The coffee is finished and in my Longaberger short pitcher (also retired) so I can pour it into my cup. Give it a little stir, and voila, it is finished. Sometimes when I am feeling like it, I will replace the creamer with Almond or Soy milk with Vanilla (sweetened).
2) When I am out and I have some extra money, I will go to Starbucks, and get a White Chocolate Latte with soy. I have a Starbucks card that I will sometimes refill just in case. I fell out of love with McDonald’s a year ago (although I am tempted to go once the new Monopoly game starts sometime this week)
3) Finally the old fashioned kind-black, with cream, 3-4 packs of sugar. This is how I got started drinking coffee. It was more fun, when there was a co-worker, who did not know how to brew that perfect cup of coffee made a pot. It tastes burnt when it sits on the burner too long. No one has killed me yet with their version of the perfect pot of coffee.
So if you have not had you morning cup of Joe yet (I did), you should celebrate the day now. If you have not, it is not mandatory if you cannot stand the taste of coffee, or if you had your 15th cup of the stuff.
