Coffee makes me a better person

Me and Zekey enjoying a cup.  He has hot chocolate (of course - even though he calls it his coffee).  lol.
Really it does.

I love the smell.  I love the taste.  I love the thought.  Yes, when I THINK of drinking coffee, it gives me a little rush. I love, love, love it.  I even love people who drink coffee.  I think we are kindred spirits.  Ha!

However, I do not like the taste of black coffee.  It is way too bitter for my sugar-loving taste buds.  And I have found that people who think they don't like coffee, DO like my coffee.  AND people who do like coffee the regular way - don't really mind my coffee.

And because I like sharing, let me share the recipe.  ;)

  • Cup of black coffee (I use: 2 tablespoons of Dunkin Donuts - hazelnut flavored coffee to 12 oz of water)
  • 2 tablespoons hot chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons of non dairy creamer. (I usually buy the hazelnut flavored creamer, but the plain flavor is SO much cheaper - especially when you buy it in bulk at BJ's - so I bought that last time and it is good - so use that!)
 (I included links so that you can see the brands that I use - I do not make money off of it.  As a matter of fact, I do not recommend you buy these things from Amazon - they are cheaper at your local grocery store)

And that is it!

I know most people like dairy creamer, but I don't use that for a few of reasons.
  1. Um, price!  If you can't tell by now, I try to save my pennies whenever I can.
  2. It makes my coffee cold.
  3. Taste!  I truly like the taste of the non-dairy creamer better.  (This may be due to me dumb-ing down my taste buds by only using non-dairy creamer - not unlike my mom's preference for the taste of artificial sweeteners over real sugar.  Yuck!)
Mmm, I just had a cup while I was writing this.  And now everything is right with the world. ;)

And if you have not had enough of my Vlogs yet, here is one I did last night (coffee-less.  Ugh!):

LOL. I love coffee too but that much stuff added would knock it into the dessert category for me.

Sounds delicious though.

Hope you have a great weekend.

I love the way coffee smells. Especially with flavored creamers. My favorite creamer is hazelnut.

Here's the thing: for some people coffee is about the caffeine; for me, it's about the warmth and the taste. At home I'm a decaf user, but at work it's caffeinated because that's all anyone brews in that place! lol I have also found that for me I have to back off when I've had to many consecutive days/weeks of coffee drinking because I get the jitters.

BTW, I love real hot chocolate too, and also cappuccinos with a mixture of flavors. :-)
