My mornings vary. My schedule tends to depend on my husband’s schedule; if he gets up early, I get up early. But no matter what is going to happen on any given day I can count on one thing – my morning coffee. I don’t make it. Believe it or not I am a little bit clueless as to how to operate a drip coffee maker. I KNOW! I’m a whiz in the kitchen – I have more professional appliances and gadgets and yet I can’t make coffee. Why should I when I have the world’s best coffee maker living with me. He adds two special ingredients….
…love and a smile. Every morning he makes me my coffee and delivers it with a kiss. Why would I WANT to learn how to make coffee when I would have to give that up? Trust me, I don’t want to and I never will. He knows exactly how I like my coffee – black with no sugar and he makes it nice and strong. He recently made me coffee in a brand new Mr. Coffee® Optimal Brew™ Thermal Coffee Maker and I’ll tell you my coffee got into my hot little hands so fast I was amazed.
This new machine can make 10 cups of delicious Millstone® coffee in less than 7 minutes! Given that he was only making my one cup it was done in less than one. That is the way to start one’s day! I love trying new coffees and I wasn’t disappointed when I picked up some of the new Millstone® coffee at Walmart.
It amazes me that coffee was even invented. Do you know how many steps there are from plant to cup? It’s actually rather fascinating; the Journey of the Bean requires specific elevations, rainfall amounts, picking at just the right time and then the roasting process. That is another science altogether. All so we coffee drinkers can take our own special #CoffeeJourneys.
So where does my coffee end up on any given day?
On Sundays the hubby and I sit and read the paper together. He will have his cup of green tea or if he is splurging on his diet he will have a cappuccino. We’ll sit, read, fight over the best sections and discuss the different articles before we get started on our day. We’ve been doing this for just about all of the 32 years of our marriage.
On his work days my coffee will find its way into the computer room. I’ll have it right at hand to sip while I read my emails and visit blogs. That can be dangerous and I’ve learned to not be drinking my coffee while reading the funnier blogs.
You can see another of my #CoffeeJourneys on my Instagram – it’s one of my favorites!
I’m sure you’d like to enjoy some coffee journeys of your own. Well, you can start all in one easy place just like I did. I found my beautiful new Mr. Coffee® and delicious Millstone® coffee at my local Walmart.
Both were easy to find in the Housewares and Grocery sections respectively. I really liked how there was a sample Mr. Coffee® Optimal Brew™ Thermal Coffee Maker out of the package so I could see it clearly. This drip coffee maker is so different from my old unit; my coffee stays warm in the insulated stainless steel carafe. If the hubby is brewing a full pot I can pause the brewing and pour myself a cup and then it continue. Gotta love that feature! Pair the sleek new Mr. Coffee with some delicious Millstone® coffees and I’m ready to go wherever my journey might take me. Even out to deal with….
Don’t let him fool you – he runs me ragged.
