depends on how I feel. sometimes one sugar and light cream, sometimes black. Sometimes with a shot of whiskey. I usally just buy ground coffe, but I have some raw beans a friend gave me, so occasionally I roast and grind them myself for a treat. that is black! and I love Iced Coffee when its hot out.
Same routine every morning. My auto coffee machine sets at 0530 and when I can smell the brew at 0545, it is time to kick start the day. Coffee and fat-free creamer. No sugar since I read an article about the five to ten pounds we can carry throughout the year on our body by just having sugar with coffee or tea in the morning. Works for me.....
I usually drink my first cup of coffee with a little sugar, then any additional cups I drink black. But coffee has really been jagging me out a lot lately, so I have tried to refrain from drinking too much of it. I really do like Starbuck's caramel macchiato though! I will have an occasional cup of tea in the morning. I drink that with a little sugar as well.
Dark roasts only: French or Italian. I put Splenda in and some kind of low fat creamer. Love it with Half and Half, but I don't do that very often. Didn't get enough this morning, going to make some more now.
Costa Rican Blend is great...love the coffee aroma....which is a big part of the morning "wake-up" brew routine. However...if I could go straight to getting the caffiene in a faster method...other than sipping on very hot brown liquid...I'd do it.
It's all about the caffiene!
That's why personally...I don't get the concept of "decaf"...at all.
I love coffee with a bit of milk and chocolate to give it a mocha like taste. I used to be a Starbucks addict, but realized I can make coffee cheaper at home. Nevertheless, lots of good memories of spending time with friends drinking coffee .
Good dark oily beans, fresh ground, brewed strong then sweetened up w/ real cream & a little sugar. I settle all the time when traveling & such, but this is how I do it at home. I love it from a French press but am far too busy (and lazy) in the mornings to do it that way. Cheers, everyone. *raises cup*
Actually all kidding aside....I'm a coffee nut....go ahead make snide remarks.... It takes me 20 minutes in the morning to make my 2 cups of coffee. I start with green coffee beans and roast them in my roaster to a very dark roast....then I grind them fresh and put the coffee in my french press....boiling water on top...wait 4 minutes ....plunge filter......and voila....best coffee you ever tasted.
Having only recently, being inducted into the coffee drinkers morning ritual club, I can't attest to the years of experience of the rest of you...however, I was introduced to vanilla coffee, with vanilla caramel creamer...which I found to be a decadent early morning treat... Now I'm hooked lol
I like my coffee pretty basic -- just a nice drip coffee with milk. I like a lot of milk though, like cafe au lait. No sugar.
I live in Japan and in the summer it's really hot and humid so in July and August I drink ice coffee, even in the morning. At home I make a big pot, then pour it in a pitcher and put it in the freezer for a few minutes, then I take it out and put it in the fridge, so I have big jug of ice coffee to get me through the day.
Are you a morning person? Are you a night owl? How do you deal with mornings if you aren't a morning person? If I have to get up before 9 AM I do not want to hear anyone's voice for at least 30 minutes or I will bite...
For me, with the arrival of spring and pulling weeds and preparing the garden, my body and surprisingly my back even feels good but it is a double coffee morning for me.What makes a morning more challenging for you? For...
What do you do in the mornings to start your day on a positive vibe?E.g if you start the day getting angry, it sort of affects the rest of the day in a negative way. So, how do you set the tone for your day?
