You know the saying -Don’t talk to me until I have had my coffee, it is a must in my home. My hubby understands the importance of my very first cup of the day. It is not that I need the coffee kick, it is my morning moment. I need the warmness to clear my mind and give me a start to my daily routine. Ahhhhh.
Today 9/29 is National Coffee Day. For me it is always coffee day. I have a small Coffee Corner in my kitchen with lots of coffee décor. Over my years of coffee enjoyment, I must have tried every method of brewing there is, or at least I have seen it.
Drip Brewer (Cuisinart is my fave brand)
Vacuum brewer (saw a demonstration of this and it was fascinating)
Instant (only in a pinch)
Espresso maker (sister has one)
I could go on. Is there a method I want to try? I am considering the Nescafe Dolce Gusto. Any thoughts?
America is infatuated with coffee, the proof is in the stores on just about every corner. Have you visited the coffee aisle in Target lately? They have an amazing variety. My coffee of choice is Gevalia House Blend Decaf. It is the best decaf I have ever had. I only drink decaf and have for years so finding a great tasting decaf is my ongoing quest. I am thrilled with the Gevalia.
Some incredible coffee facts from an online survey:
Morning Sunshine: Real coffee drinkers are only in a fog until their lips hit the java. 44% say their morning “officially” begins after they’ve had their first coffee
Cup O’Smarts: On average, coffee drinkers think they gain 25 IQ points after they have a cup of coffee – and 14% of drinkers think they gain 55 to 99 points!
The Real McSteamy: 59% of coffee drinkers agree that coffee drinkers are more attractive than non-coffee drinkers
The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Survey was conducted by Wakefield Research (www.wakefieldresearch.com) among 1,000 nationally representative U.S. adults ages 18+, between May 6th and May 14th, 2014, using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas have been set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the U.S. adult population 18+.
Go ahead and grab another cup! It is National Coffee Day. I am holding my mug up high in a toast to our favorite deep dark brown steepness of pleasure. I have about a hundred mugs too! Make mine with flavored Coffeemate please – (OMG another coffee related obsession, holiday flavors are available people). Time for another cup.
Have a great day!
