I am not a coffee drinker.... I'll admit it
I was raised in a house that rarely drank coffee... I can remember my parents drinking coffee on vacation & it would totally freak me out. I have just a FEW memories of my mom drinking a cup every now & then... but it was NOTHING like having to have coffee ready every morning, or a timer set or anything.
Our oldest daughter, Julie, is a coffee addict... or I should say WAS - since she was pregnant & breast feeding, she broke her habit some - which I never thought the girl could do!
So when she stayed with us - poor thing was living in a home with no coffee maker. Yes, I hang my head in shame - I had no coffee maker. So we went all crazy & got a little 2 cup coffee maker - perfect for one person!
This picture is similar the one we have - but I just think its the cutest thing in the world... the pot just fits in the palm of my hand and is probably not bigger than one in a kid's play kitchen! But it got the job done!
I feel so grown up with this on my counter now!
And the reason I keep it on my counter is because we have a Bible Study group that rotates & two of the people are big coffee drinkers - so yes - I am prepared! I may have to make coffee a few times a night because a little 2 cup pot doesnt hold much - but I am more than up to the task.
Tonight is our turn again for hosting & I had to run & get the goodies. Julie taught me the best kind of Starbucks coffee to get - so check - got it! And one of the ladies loves creamers in her coffee so off to get that.
The thing is - the flavor SOUNDS so good on the creamers... & I LOVE the smell of coffee, but I really dont care for the taste. What am I missing? What makes it so special for you? How do you "take it" (is that right coffee terminology there?) - & how can you justify drinking all those calories - that's what gets me... ugh! I'd rather eat a piece of pie than drink a coffee for the same amount of calories...
explain to me your coffee fixation...
