When I was a kid I hated the smell of coffee brewing in the morning. Back in those days coffee was made on the stove top or in an electric percolator.
It always smelled like something was burning & it made me sick to my stomach. In fact, it made me so sick I could never eat breakfast before going to school. Mother would give me a nickel to buy chocolate milk at school & I would drink it during morning recess.
Fast forward to 1974, my final semester of college.
I was student teaching & carrying 21 hours.
This is when I started drinking coffee in the faculty lounge.
I did not like the taste of black coffee, but I did like it with a little milk & sugar.
The cafeteria sent over a large pan of buttery, cinnamon toast every morning.
I was hooked on the great combination of caffeine & carbs!
Christmas 2009 Hubby & I bought a new coffee maker as a gift to each other.
I love my Keurig!
Fresh coffee in seconds.
I usually have 2 cups every morning, sometimes 3.
I still add a splash of milk and my sweetener of choice, Splenda.
K-cups in an apothecary.
We also make hot chocolate in our Keurig.
Dark chocolate or cafe mocha are the choices . . .
