Coffee sweet Coffee


I love coffee! It's my favorite morning pick me up! I especially love Costa Rican coffee. Meg studied Spanish there this summer at the Costa Rican Language Academy. Tori went down there to visit and vacation. They were instantly hooked on this smooth, rich coffee. They brought me back a bag....I'm now buying it on-line! I like the whole bean....I grind it and have fresh coffee daily. Mmmmm....I'm having a huge cup as I type this out.


So here are a few coffee ads I found and thought were funny!

I can drink an entire pot of coffee and still fall asleep like a baby!

Sometimes I do get the jitters if I drink a few cups back to back real fast.

I like to buy the seasonal creamers and try them out. The latest one I've tried was Peppermint Mocha....it was good! The Gingerbread one was delicious. My all time favorite creamer is Creme Brulee. YUM! No sugar please! I also keep my beans in a cinnamon bark container that was carved in Vietnam; I purchased it at Ten Thousand Villages. It makes for a lovely tasting coffee.
What is your favorite pick me up drink in the morning?

I can't stand the taste of coffee...BUT, I love to smell it brewing. Isn't that strange? My favorite drink to get me going in the morning would have to be a glass of orange-pineapple Sunny Delight...yummy!

I love coffee. It makes the world go round. Have a good holiday.

I love an extra dark coffee pressed in a french press. The only way to drink it I think. I usually add creamer or a flavored creamer--hazelnut being my favorite.

I am not a coffee drinker either. I love the smell but can not stand the taste...I must a have a fountain Diet pepsi in the AM though!!

Melody said...

I love the silly ads! hahahaha

Jamie said...

Because I'm up when everybody else is sleeping my pick me up is "Venom" Energy Drinks. Definately keeps me on my toes that's for sure.

Julie said...

I wish I had one... I need one. But nothing affects me for keeping awake. In college I could drink a Mt. Dew and go right to bed... and I don't like coffee.. *sigh*

Dana said...

Coffee. Definitely. Peppermint mocha is my Starbucks FAVE.

Have a great holiday!

First, I hope you are feeling better and that dang fever broke!

I am drinking a cup of hot tea right now as I type. I'm talented like that. LOL I am more of a tea drinker than coffee but love me some French Vanill Cappuccino from...7-11. If it is brewed here at home, I have cinnamon vanilla creamer from CoffeeMate. Yum!

Tori said...

if i am at your house or grandma's house, it's coffee for me. just the way you like it, but you already know all this!

& here...probably just some OJ or water. I've been mixing that cranberry juice you gave me with OJ & it tastes amazing!

love you, happy wednesday.

Mate! :)

I'm a skinny cinnamon chai charger no foam latte girl. I love my local coffee shop because they know exactly how I want it. Starbucks just can't get it right and most of the time does not have any cinnamon syrup (huh?) and leaves loads of foam on the top -- hey...I paid for a drink not foam!! They get an attitude when I ask them to fix it so I pretty much only darken their door if it's an emergency!

natalie said...

Coffee keeps me going, for sure.

Heather said...

I've been a coffee drinker since I started working night shift 16 years ago.

Now that Michelle won the coffee, I'll be sittin' pretty with some Jamaican beans for awhile. 'Cause she's nice like that (and only drinks hot tea, no coffee for her).

I love me some delicious creamer, also. I have spiced vanilla rum flavor in my fridge right now.

Hope you're feeling better. Are you home from work again today?

Lynette said...

I see you added yourself as a follower - welcome aboard!! Wasn't yesterday a blast?? I had so much fun meeting so many new bloggers!! My daughter's name is Meghan - but I spelled it with the "H" - poor kid - she is forever having to say "it's Meghan, with an "H"!! LOL I hope you visit often - there is always something going on -
Have a good one ~
Oh, my favorite drink is caffeine free diet pepsi - can't drink caffeine and don't like hot beverages - I know - I'm not right!!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Mmmmm... I Love coffe with the pumpkin spice creamer (the one with the blue lid only). Sadly I am out of coffee today...but I do have the creamer. What else could I put that in???

Beths Blog said...

I think I need to come to your house and try this coffee that you love so much. What do you think??? I've kind of gotten in a coffee funk, not liking what I'm fixing at home. I don't know if its the coffee, the pot, or me! But, grl, let me tell you I LOVE me nonfat pumpkin spice latte, light whip from starbuck. It just makes me feel warm inside.

ARe you feeling better?

I'm a major coffee lover too. So many people at church drink coffee that my dad has always said that coffee is the beverage choice of Heaven!
Works for me!

I'm not a coffee drinker but I love a nice glass of OJ in the mornings.... I have a Sunny D on my way to work most mornings. My husband is from Colombia so when we go we have to bring my family back some fresh Colombian coffee beans.

CrYsTAL said...

You know I love the smell of coffee i just can't drink it, LOL.
Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. I wasn't able to make it to a computer because my sister just had her baby last night!!!! I'm so excited!
Merry SITSmas

Becky said...

I love the ads!!

My husband is over the top with coffee. He has a Starbucks $200 machine in our kitchen to make his several expresso's he drinks a day. On top of the expressos he drinks regular coffee.

Talk about hanging out with an old mean nasty bear with a headache, if he doesn't get his needed amount.

I don't drink coffee much. He drinks enough for the both of us:)

MarciaBrady said...

I like the smell of coffee, but never got into drinking it. But, I am extremely sensitive to caffeine. Just yesterday, I drank 1, mind you, 1 Pepsi and I couldn't sleep last night. But, I guess that's good if I ever really need to stay up for some reason!

BTW: Love the song list. I'm thinking I might have to put some of those on mine!!

GREAT pics of you and your family!! You all seem like you have so much fun together!

What a great blog you have here!

Yaya said...

Whoo hoo coffee!

Dawnie said...

Hello I'm Dawn from Wisconsin and doing what I do most every day and out visiting new blogs!

Your daughters are beautiful--really truly beautiful girls!

I have twins away at school, but they are just about ready to graduate and then the real life begins.

I'm not a coffee drinker at all--but hubby is and the girls are to. One worked at Starbucks for awhile and boy did my house smell good!

Susie said...

I like coffee too:-) My favorite treat is a mocha (no big surprise there...it's chocolate!!)

Nia, Lia, Tia said...

No coffee lover here, but I'm hooked on caffeine...promised myself I would stop this week and last week and the week before (must be Nie talking) well, I'm not going off caffeine, and I don't care!(ooops Tie must have slipped out) Love your Blog. Seriously I think we need an empty nesters club, your girls are darling... I have two also... cute as a button, oh I mean buttons...

mrsbear said...

Oh yea, I'm a coffee gal through and through, espresso, cappuccino, American with half n half and sugar is what I usually have in the morning. If I don't drink it I get headaches, and it never ever interrupts my sleep. My head hits the pillow and I am out like a light.

Jenni Jiggety said...

I am a coffee girl, too! MUST have it every day...I am a total junkie! I have 2 cups in the morning and often a 3rd in the afternoon.

dddiva said...

We are coffee freaks here too. My favorite is straight up black but the little diva's love the creamers- they say the tiramisu is their favorite. Someone must like it around here because it is the hardest one to find- mostly empty spots.
Hope you are feeling better.
Oh, and I LOVE the ads.
We've been trying some of the fair trade coffee's... most are really good but a little pricey.

heathersister said...

I love tea. I have hot tea in the morning, can't start the day without it. At lunch I make a cup of fresh iced tea, so refreshing, way better than soda. At night if I need something warm I have herbal tea. I love apple cinnamon. Chamomile is nice too, helps you to relax.

The Mommy said...

Cute coffee pics! :) I didn't used to be a huge coffee fan, until I found the Keurig single cup coffee maker, and now I'm addicted!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I love those last 2 graphics! Too funny. I'm all about the coffee. My favorite, which is like crack to me, is Cinnamon Bun cappucino from Walgreen's. I'm completely addicted!

beth said...

Coffee always taste better away from home and in a regular cup. Same goes for salads.

Wolf said...

coffee...i go through stages of liking it. i mostly like it cold. but i LOVE the smell of it brewing.

we don't use the coffee maker much in our house...have it mostly because our family like it when they visit. i'm more of a tea drinking myself.
