There is nothing like coffee.
Black preferably… sometimes, as a treat, with a splash of organic, warm milk…
Acidic, hot and most importantly… strong.
(Speaking of coffee flavors; many years back I decided to wean myself off of the syrup flavors when ordering coffee treats like lattés. My favorite was caramel, I liked Hazelnut too. Nowadays I love plain lattés. And though it’s cliché; Starbucks makes the best and there are few delights as delicious as a skinny, decaf latté from Starbucks… had to give up caffeine on account of the babes. I do however love an iced carmel Machiato once a year…skinny, decaf and easy ice and carmel!)
Ok, that was a whole bunch of info I hadn’t intended to share.
Something I am really particular about… and can you believe it?
But I’ve got to have a white cup/mug to really enjoy my coffee.
Seriously, I am not kidding.
I’ve just got have a white cup otherwise I can not get into it no matter how good the coffee tastes. It’s a family thing, I can remember as a child, my Grampa asking the waitress for a white mug if she brought him one of those ugly brown ones so popular in the 80’s…
It’s all about the moment.
(There is certain silverware I use that makes me happy, Silly is as silly does but I’ve even been known to bring my own glass to wine tastings)… a girl’s just got to be able to have her moment.
And a cup of coffee provides you get those moments where you get to sit for just a few before your day gets going…
and you can’t let anything ruin that.
What are your “moments” that you create for yourself?
Are you particular?
How do you take your coffee?
Joel calls me picky… I say I just know what I like!
Gotta run, Coffee is ready to press.
Bon Weekend Mes Amies!
P.S. Did you know that this old 1980’s song by Lacy J. Dalton is one of my FAVORITE to sing? I wish I had a recording to play for you – that would be a riot.
And you CAN NOT go wrong with a little Julie London!!!
I love Café Verona by Starbucks and yes, we do grind our own beans.
For a more reasonably priced coffee we purchase Organic French Roast from Trader Joe’s.
