i thought i'd stop by early today, and say hi and good morning to all of you nice folks.:) most mornings i'm not fit for anything social, like conversation, until i'm well into my second cuppa. which is about where i am now, with my flavor of the week/month?, a sumatra blend coffee. i kinda like the sound of that, SumAtra, s00-mAAA-tra, probably why i drive a s00-ba-r000, too.:) i was kinda hoping to find some cookies here, left from last night...or some of those bittersweet chocolate chips i saw somebody had the other day...ya know what we could use here, one of them small, apartment size refrigerators? to keep our snacks in, and, i drink mine black, but coffee creamers, people could bring in their french vanillas and irish cremes and stuff, ya know, keep 'em cold.....

I'm having my first cuppa. Saturdays, I have to wait half an hour after I take pill before I can have anything but water. At least it's only once a week. I am enjoying that coffee now.

Vit, it is so great to have you around, you ALWAYS make me smile!
My Coffee Maker has dust on it. I've been drinking instant for months and I hardly ever eat cookies. I'll have herbal tea and pumpkin seeds with you Laurie
This is a great thread by the way V I just don't have the patients to wait for coffee. We have really good instant and it only takes 2 mins

Or a one cup Melitta cone. It's not quite as fast as a Keurig, but almost and a heck of a lot cheaper.

So far today I've downed 2-12oz cups and am now on my third (and last) 10oz cup. I'm using the Donut Shop Med roast bold with a splash of milk.

Gevalia Morning Roast. I bought these because my partner likes a milder coffee, but he prefers the Tim Horton's with lots of creamer. So I'm just drinking them to get rid of them, they aren't bad at all, I just like a little more of a medium roast.

Not to get morbid or anything, I'm interested in the Keurig, too. Let me 'splain. I'm not much of a coffee-drinker, like Snip just doing instant coffee first thing in the morning. But I'm tired of my kids, when I find something swell I want to give them, saying, "stop, already." I now have it in my head to begin buying "myself" better quality items that they will get when I croak, whether they like it or not. Like a Keurig. Gotta start small -- Heaven forfend that I begin to think along the lines of a sporty car, which had better not happen on my budget. My daughter would just love to have a KA mixer, but can't afford it.......

Will I come to love actual coffee? Will the fancy-coffee bug bite me? Will my kids poison my oatmeal when they figure it out? Tune in tomorrow.
