well waking up to cookie smell and all there is is coffee and porridge is slightly disappointing.

We brew, on average, an 8-cup worth pot of coffee from fresh ground beans courtesy of Dean's Beans...and a charge on our credit card. BUT, first thing, I have to wake my taste buds up with tea - a touch of sugar and a pour of "strong milk".* Once I have my cup of tea, life can proceed in this fashion:



At this point in my life, I find it easier if I wake up body-part by body-part. No more bouncing out of bed and hitting the ground.




*"strong milk" is what I call my mix of 1/2 2% milk and 1/2 half-and-half. @5 is too wimpy for my tea, half-and-half is *gasp* too creamy.

Between 500- 700 ml tea or coffee is consumed every morning in this house hold, yay for big mugs.

I have a pot of coffee going 24 hours a day. Unfortunately for me, coffee is my only liquid for the day. When I am out and about, you will always find me with "one small light, extra sugar," in my hand. Every so often I get on my tea kick. Black with just a touch of sugar. I like Bigelow's English Tea Time. For coffee, I prefer Folgers.

I would argue there's no such thing as "American" coffee. As with so many other things, it's a very large country with several distinct regions that have different preferences between, and even within, themselves.

I don't know what "American" coffee would be.

I guess she means standard brand of american coffee.
I guess you can get Arvid Nordquist and Löfbergs lila and Gevalia in USA to in every store but we cant get Keurig or Flogers unless we had off to a specialty store. I have seen Maxwell House coffee but only up at the UNI.

You know, I haven't had Folger's or MW in so long, I completely forgot about them We usually get Seattle's Best Signature Blend No. 4, described as Medium-Dark Rich. I was surprised just now to find out that it's produced by Starbucks: America's 7 Best Coffee Brands -- The Motley Fool

We used to buy beans, but neither of us has the patience to grind them every morning. In fact, I rarely make coffee; DH gets up between 5 and 5:30 most days, so he makes it.

We have Keurig and Cuisinart coffeemakers side by side on the counter. SO uses the Keurig with Starbucks House Blend. I usually use the Cuisinart. I grind Starbucks French Roast I buy in bulk at Costco. When I'm lazy or late in the morning I use the Keurig too.
