COFFEE FIRST.....THEN SCHEMING....

The relationship between mornings and coffee had always been a beautiful one.

Whether it's enjoying one at a little café, Starbucks on the go, or our chosen elixir at home, it does as much to perk things up as a good man in the morning, or a fresh pair of white briefs.  Nothing like the fresh smell of coffee brewing. First thing in the morning, I head the to kitchen before anything, head to the freezer and get the coffee.  I grind my own beans and then use my glass Melita  coffee pot for a nice slow brew...not one of those contraption things for me...I'm old fashioned....coffee is meant to be slow brewed. And then the smell just takes over.....it's one of the everyday treasures I love....and certainly  a must on a Monday, then let the scheming begin.
 
 Ahhhhhh, that's better... and this song helps too.

Have a Great Monday !!!!!

  6. Ahhh... That first cup of coffee on a Monday morning is just Heaven!
    Those two ladies in their comedy turbans enjoying a gossip and coffee is how I'd like my Monday morning to continue. Alas, work always gets in the way.

  7. Coffee (alongside nicotine and alcohol) is one of my amino acids! And Eydie Gorme makes it all even better... Jx

  8. The best coffee is always made the slow, old fashioned way. There's nothing like it (...and the aroma!!!)

    Great coffee photos!

  12. Mistress, you and I may be the only ones who use a Meltia coffee pot, which is similar to a coffee press...but it sure does taste good. I too love this post and adore the Eydie Gorme song. You always find the perfect songs.

  13. I can't function in the morning till I get my coffee. I wish I'd seen this post earlier....my co-worker will love it.

  14. Carlos makes us each a cafe con leche for breakfast which starts the day off perfectly.
    If we have coffee at all later in the day we use a French press because it makes the perfect cup!

    PS Loving Eydie!

    3. @Anne Marie: It's not the wrapper, but the gift inside that counts! Now if THAT is saggy, you have my thoughts and prayers :)

  17. Coffee has never looked sexier. I can almost smell it....

  18. I am retired, you know, and the only thing that drags me out of my shut-in ecstasy is errands, which always include stopping for coffee. In San Francisco, I highly recommend Peet's.

  19. I like my coffee with lots of sugar and cream/milk. I don't know how people can drink coffee just black. I drink a cup before work, then two cups after lunch for the caffeine jolt.

    At home, I like to substitute the creamer with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If I have guests who might prefer something fancier than the instant coffee from the coffee maker, I drive to the nearest gas station to pick up the French Vanilla, Irish Cream, and English Toffee flavors that people love.

    1. Oh.....arent you sneaky!!!!

      I sometimes put whipped cream in my coffee when home. I have been drinking, religiously for year a blend from my coffee man at the market, Ethiopian Yirgashiff. My other go to is hazelnut.

    2. @eroswings: Yay, a coffee soulmate! I had a friend who said that if you can't drink coffee black, then you don't like coffee. I told him to back off and let me enjoy my cup of cream and sugar with coffee flavoring. Folger's Black Silk is bold without being bitter.

  20. I always have coffee with my breakfast every morning. I also like to have a second cup of coffee or a chai latte in the early afternoon so I can get through the rest of the work day. It's a nice little routine I've got going on.

    1. I love chai latte and have a pound of it also. I keep that for when I'm not in straight on coffee moods.

  21. Only instant here (yes, that MUCK!) - 'cos I can't be bothered with all that 'making it' mullarkey.

    1. I think I had instant once. We have one brand here, Maxwell House that's not bad....but only in a pinch.

    2. I must have tried them all (or most of 'em) over the years, M.M. It always settles down on the Nescafe granules which manages to keep me ticking over nicely.

  22. Oh, Eydie Gorme! Thanks! We had a Melita drip. Then a Braun electric drip. Now nothing. But I've been researching automatic espresso machines with built-in grinders and milk steamers. Otherwise, we'll continue to go out for coffee every morning.

    1. I have to habe one cup upon getting up, but nothing like going out to a cafe for one for the social aspect.

  23. Where can I find a coffee maker like the one in the 3rd picture, I hope multi tasks and does floors.

  24. That first cup in the morning is heavenly.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You're right - that first cup is a delightful must. Naked (morning boner leading the way); cup in hand, out to the patio. I do however love my Keurig - every cup freshly brewed.
