Morning Coffee Rituals
Today we're going to talk about our coffee rituals. Be interesting to read everyone's morning methods!
Here's my morning coffee ritual. Or my morning ritual period, is more like it. Every morning I get up and hit the floor with my yoga mat. Then shower, then eat a bowl of cereal. Then it's coffee time.
Some mornings I use the mini Keurig and have one cup in a red mug. I have to use one of four red mugs from Walmart because the others won't fit under the Keurig. Some mornings, like this morning, I'm using the old Cuisinart because I want two cups.
I don't have a coffee grinder. I'm not that much of a connoisseur. I put it in a tight container.
My coffee of choice is Dunkin Donuts. I also like Folgers fancy coffee. Or if I'm buying K-cups, I often just buy brands I find online.
This time I bought decaf Dunkin Donuts ground coffee. I have enough energy so I don't really need the caffeine. Well, I'll alter that. I haven't had decaf in awhile, so if my batteries don't get charged, will switch back to caffeinated!
I will choose one of my four cups on the little red shelf above the coffee bar. There is yellow (which I usually use), black, green and white. The yellow one has a little chip in it, and so I'm fond of it because it isn't perfect.
I add about a teaspoon of Half & Half. Then I add some refrigerated creamer. I found some Dunkin Donuts creamer at Target and I really like it. Otherwise it is Coffee Mate vanilla.
I read and answer emails and drink my coffee. Never have more than two cups. Getting up now to fix cup #2.
So what is your coffee ritual? What is your favorite brand? What do you typically do while you drink it? Do you eat before you have coffee? How many cups will you have? How do you take your coffee? Do you grind your own beans? Do tell...
