Call me a sucker, but I just have to have it. My morning coffee. It is one of the very first things I do in the morning when I get up is to head for the kitchen, and get that pot of coffee brewing. How do I like mine? Straight up. Black. No sugar, no cream, no nothing. Just black coffee in my cup for me. I always make a full pot. 12 cups, and five tablespoon scoops of coffee. I need no fancy coffee. No expensive Starbucks grounds, or Dunkin' Donuts grounds. On occasion I may have a special cup though. I might make a pot of Eight O'clock coffee or something like that. I may even get the whole beans and grind them myself. But overall when it comes to my morning coffee, I can drink the generic stuff from Walmart, or even something like Maxwell House or Folgers.
I like my coffee. But I am not picky. I am also thrifty, even when it comes to my morning coffee.
Unlike my sister and brother-in-law I am not a coffee snob. I need no fancy pot, no fancy grounds, and unlike them as well, I rarely if ever fork out my hard-earned cash for a cup of Joe at Starbucks. They spend a lot of money on their coffee. I also only drink coffee in the morning. Never in the afternoon. And certainly never at night. But they will drink coffee any time of the day.
For me I am happy with just my morning coffee. I'll have several cups before I call it quits for the day. But no day gets started without it.
