C- is for Coffee

16 Comments

And of course there is no other way as to drink it black, strong and hot. Or – total opposite: iced capp, sweet, milky and light πŸ˜€ But I do not call it coffee, it is cappuccino after all πŸ˜‰

If possible – with a company of friend(s) or just a bunch of people to talk to πŸ™‚
Option two (equal to one though πŸ˜‰ ) – a coffee&book combo…

ooops! there seems to be a... hare (?ok, a bunny :P) in my coffee cup!!! :)

As to coffee itself – I knew I’d love it before I tasted it. I remember as a little (and then not so little) girl I’d always hover above my Mom’s coffee cup as it was brewing (she’d drink it what we called “turkish style” – boiling water poured over the coffee grounds). I loved the smell, could sit there and inhale it all the time. My Mom stood her ground though and I was not allowed to taste it until I was 16 πŸ™‚

Obviously – I have my faves. Main thing is though – it has to be strong. And by that I mean – 5 heaping teaspoons per 400 ml mug – strong. Nope, I do not drink it my Mom’s way (neither she does anymore, my Sister still does πŸ™‚ ), I have my trusty one cup (more like one mug πŸ˜› ) coffee maker.

cute coffee cup @Mandarin :D

Of course from time to time I enjoy coffee in a fancy cup… Like when I’m in a restaurant πŸ™‚ There is a risk involved in ordering coffee there though – not Β everywhere it is “drinkable”- so to speak πŸ™‚

I have my favourite brands (nope, not expensive ones πŸ˜€ The amounts I drink would’ve left me bankrupt looooong time ago πŸ˜‰ ), occasionally experimenting with new ones, knowing that in case it turns out to be not too great – I can always do the salt&cinnamon trick (yup, few grains of salt soften the taste, and cinnamon… well, it just smells divine, does it not? ).

I stay away from all those k-cups or whatchamacallits. Not for me. I like to mix in a tsp of hazelnut vanilla coffee though. And when in the mood for something with a kick – I add a shot of Irish cream… mmmmm…

…and having said that – my mouth is watering, so I better stop now (although I could go on πŸ˜‰ before I’ll think another Cup of Coffee is in order! πŸ™‚

  1. I always wondered why my Dad made coffee that way (boiling water and coffee grounds). Good to know. I love the K-cups because I can make one cup as opposed to making a whole pot of coffee. I also enjoy tea especially green, black, and matcha.

  2. I like the smell of coffee, but don’t drink it. Tea for me please.

    • I have quite a selection, which one do you prefer? toasted walnuts, lime gelato, key lime… and more that I don’t even remember the names? πŸ˜€ (no decent black tea in my house though, sorry πŸ˜€ )

  3. Drinking my morning cup o’ coffee as I read this and couldn’t agree more. Coffee makes the world go round.

  4. I love a good strong cup of coffee too. I like a sturdy coffee cup that keeps it piping hot.

    • For long time that was my dream – to drink a cup of coffee while it is still hot:) When the kids were small I was drinking the same one cup of coffee all day, putting it into microwave some 10+ times … πŸ™‚

  5. Great coffee post. Popular subject today!

  6. From one great coffee lover to another…. Sometimes I just love i sit and smell the stuff!!! Drinking it is just added pleasure?

  7. The post is smelling of good hot coffee.. Loved it.

  8. I think I’m the only adult on the planet who doesn’t drink coffee lol. My hot drink of choice is mint black tea, but usually you’ll find me with a diet Coke πŸ™‚ Good luck with the challenge this month!

    • you’re not lonely – my Husband does not drink coffee πŸ™‚ herbal/green tea is his drink, but usually he’ll drink just water πŸ˜€
