I coffee. Simply adore it. Have to have at least one cup in the morning. Brings back memories of my Nanny perking a pot on the stove on cold winter mornings. But, has anyone other than me (or is it I ?) ever noticed that it’s not often that coffee tastes as good as it smells? No? Well, maybe it’s just me then.
I’ve started bringing my own cup from home for the drive to work — it saves money but moreover, I’m very particular about my coffee. One of my biggest beefs is that when I go through the drive through at Dunkin Donuts, I ask for the same thing every time — medium iced, extra milk, one sugar. Can I tell you how many different shades iced coffee can come in, depending on the person that is preparing it? I don’t understand why these places don’t have some kind of standardization. I’ve been known to send it back 3 times before I finally like the color. Then they have to work on the sweetness of it.
I understand that our area is going to be graced by a Starbucks in the near future. Dunno about that — I’ve tried alot of their coffees and the only one that I can even begin to like is one that they only have around Christmas time. This year I think I just may stock up so that I can have it at home. I really like coffee made with my own filtered water the best.
And my favorite coffee? Green Mountain Coffee’s Lake and Lodge. Its so much my favorite that I only buy it about once a year so that I don’t get overly familiar with it!! Yummy yum yum yummo!!
