Coffee, the elixer of life

Updated on June 27, 2012

I love coffee

I love coffee. I love the smell, I love the taste and I love the fact that it helps wake me up in the morning. There is nothing better that waking up in the morning to that heavenly aroma waffling through the house inviting to to get and a have a cup. That first cup of coffee in the morning for me is the best of the day. Sitting there holding that cup of coffee allowing the aroma to drift up to your nose. Oh that heavenly aroma. As the day goes on I find myself looking for ways to have my coffee and to satisfy my sweet tooth. There are many great flavored creams to add to your coffee. I have my definite favorites among them. But, I decided that I need a way to make that special me-time coffee. The kind you can't find in a store. I have included some great recipes that I enjoy from time to time. I also decided to include some sayings and quotes about coffee. Yes, there are people out there who feel to same way I do about coffee.
