Coffee is the best friend who greets me every single morning when I wake up. My alarm goes off, I lay there for a few minutes, I read my devotion for the day and as soon as my feet hit the ground my first thought is coffee. A hot, steaming and perfect cup of coffee.
I am very specific about my coffee and I truly don't start my day until I have consumed the first cup. When my husband began traveling five days a week I bought an extra Keurig and created a coffee bar in our master bathroom. If I was going to be both parents during the week I definitely needed some help to do so. Truly it may have been the smartest thing I have ever done. Not having to run downstairs to grab coffee while I am getting ready in the morning is a big deal.
For me the perfect cup of coffee is a dark roast blend with a splash of cream. I like it hot and the minute it changes temperature it changes flavor for me. I have been known to wash out a cup with a little left in the bottom for a fresh cup. My favorite coffee at home is Starbucks French Roast and I use the individual servings of CoffeeMate creamer. Since my creamer doesn't require refrigeration I can put a bunch of them in a blue and white bowl on my coffee tray in the bathroom. I pour my creamer in before the coffee brews and then I don't even need a spoon. Yes, I have thought through the details to make coffee as easy as possible in the morning. The only down side, sometimes I forget to take my cup up when I head to bed. #oops
I have linked all my favorites for the perfect cup of coffee below. I am definitely a Keurig girl. The clean up is worth every single cent and the coffee is exactly the same every single time. I have a larger Keurig for the kitchen and the smaller color version upstairs and in the guest suite. And I am a confessed coffee cup addict. I love to grab a cup or two when I am traveling and then use them at home and remember my fabulous adventure. My go to cups are my Ashley Brooke cups I linked below and my Kate Spade travel cups. I mean who doesn't love a cup that greets them every morning calling them Mrs. Fancy Pants. Umm ... #yesplease!!
Here's to hot coffee and a easy Monday!! I will be enjoying my second cup in a few with some amazing morning tunes!!
