tip of the day, make sure to put a cup under the drip line (what ever that hole in the machine calls where liquid comes out), Unlike my daughter when she was making cacao this morning

I did that yesterday!
Normally, we "set up the coffee bar" the night before after finishing the dinner dishes. A cup set under the dispenser with a k-cup in the shoot ready to go.
I forgot to do all of this, got up, bleary eyed, shoved the handle down, hit my cup size button, and proceeded to the bathroom... came back to quite the mess OOPS!

Please forgive me for not going through all the posts. Someone here at DC tipped us off to the San Francisco Coffee Co. They are much less expensive than Keurig. Right now they have a 20% off Veterans Day special.
The code is "ThankYou Vets"
Our favorites are Fog Chaser and French Roast. I give Kayelle the French Roast first in the morning to get her heart started.
The Breakfast Blend and the Green Mountain are also nice.Unfortunately, Costco does mot carry many of their varieties, so I order them on line when they have a sale.
Also you get points every time you buy from them that can be used to pay for your coffee. I discovered that at Keurig the points are only good for accessories.

I thought I heard someone talking about my heart.

It's true though that I need that strong cup of coffee first thing in the morning.

By the way Cheryl, my sous chef makes the best iced tea EVER, and I go through a gallon of it every two days. Love it...I'll let him tell you how to do it. I play dumb so I don't have to make it.

Thank you, Souschef! Copied and pasted, and added Earl Grey to my list. I do love my iced tea and will for sure try this.
