Yesterday was National Coffee Day here in the U.S. and tomorrow is International Coffee Day, so I thought I’d split the difference and celebrate today!
Earlier this week another study was released suggesting that 2 – 3 cups of the brew is good for your heart and longevity.
We see these kinds of headlines about every 6 months which is encouraging, yes.
But regardless, I’ll enjoy my morning coffee, either at home, or in the cutest shop I can find, whether near or far.
There’s no better way to start the day than with coffee – my favorite food group! 🙂
Ha! You got me here! I must say it’s the first thing I take in the morning. It’s my life boost.
Yes, indeed! No better way to start the day! 😁
I love the smell of coffee in the morning but I just can’t stand the taste! Sparky on the other hand love his coffee and must have it to be able to function. I’m completely decaffeinated…
The smell is wonderful indeed! I’ve enjoyed a cuppa brew for as long as I can remember, and am always happy when they report its health benefits! 😊
Alas, my doctor says coffee is bad for my blood pressure – but I often sneak a second cup anyway.
What a bummer. But I think the other benefits must certainly outweigh any issues with BP, right? 😊☕
I share your love of coffee, Susanne! A couple of good cups in the morning then a leftover cup (or two) in the afternoon. We were on the road in Portland and you can be sure I enjoyed a pumpkin spice cold brew or a skinny PS latte. Heaven! I agree with the health benefits it has.
Hi Terri! Looks like you had a great time in Portland! Isn’t it wonderful we can enjoy our coffee and know it’s good for us? 🙂 I like to start out with mine black, then follow it up with a latte, since my Keurig machine does both. And it’s always fun to find a new place on the road to try their local brew, especially for a specially flavored latte. 🙂
Love this and love coffee!
Thanks, John! Great to know we can enjoy it every day and reap health benefits too! 🙂
Yes indeed there are so many healthy benefits! I mean, just dont load it up with a ton of sugar and dairy!
Yes! Although I admit that after I have my 2 cups of black coffee in the morning, I like to follow it up with a latte, which actually is very filling and serves as my breakfast. ☕☕😊
Love the 🐶in the foam,
Cute isn’t he? I love how some batistas turn foam into art!
Always wondered why there aren’t more slogans.
The best part of waking up is
Folgers in your cup! ☕ But that dates me. 😊
I stopped drinking coffee at home over a year ago. My favourite instant brand was no longer being made, and I couldn’t be bothered to get used to other brands that didn’t taste the same. So I switched to a strong brand of tea instead. But when we are out and about, I still enjoy a nice strong coffee in a cafe or bar.
Best wishes, Pete.
Do you miss it at home? I’ve been drinking coffee since high school and can’t imagine giving it up. I especially love that first cup in the morning. But if I had to, I think I could adjust to a good cup of tea. 😊
I missed it at first, but the tea I drink instead is so strong, it soon made up for it. 🙂
I love coffee too, and especially in a cosy coffee shop or on a street/terrace/deck with a view 🙂 That ‘Better Living Through Coffee’ place looks a bit familiar – could it possibly be in Port Townsend? We had breakfast in a place that looked very like that!
Yes, doesn’t it taste best in a cozy coffee shop? And you have a good memory! That ‘better living through coffee’ is indeed in Port Townsend! 😊
I’m surprised myself that I recognised it – we were there over four years ago and only for that one breakfast 😀
Gotta have my large cup of French-pressed coffee in the morning. Better Living Through Coffee is still in business then. Good for them.
Do you drink Kona coffee grown on the island? Delicious but a bit pricey if I remember my trip to one of the farms! And yes, that cute coffee shop in PT has survived. 😊
Actually, Kona coffee is great, but a bit mellow for me. I prefer a dark roast.
I am with you. And always great with a buddy, especially sitting on a dock in Port Townsend. Love the puppy dog design. Cheers.
Yes indeed! Cheers! 😊
Love everything about Coffee !
Me too! No better way to start the day! 🙂
I love coffee.
Me too! 🙂
Susanne Swanson, I like all roasts and also enjoy the occasional flavored coffee. Do you like the coffee pot or the French Press? Both?
I like coffee in many different ways but at home I use a Keurig machine for both black coffee and to make lattes.
