The definition of a really good cup of coffee varies with each individual.
It seems that most prefer what I call the candy bar cup of coffee, where the flavor of coffee is buried in flavored syrups, sugar, whip cream and who knows what else. I suspect some people even drink a specific brand of coffee more to make a statement about their social status as opposed to truly enjoying a good cup of coffee.
I Love Coffee.
I don’t want it to taste like a candy bar, I really love the flavor of coffee.
I spent years buying expensive brands, but eventually, I discovered that it really isn’t the brand that makes a good cup of coffee, it’s a matter of finding that perfect balance of the amount of coffee grounds to water ratio.
I use a one-cup coffee maker where I scoop in the coffee grounds, rather than use the plastic Keurig cups.
The first thing I do when I wake up is brew a fresh, hot cup of coffee. I add a small amount of creamer, I don’t want to bury the flavor of the coffee itself. After I’ve enjoyed my first cup of coffee in the morning, I feel refreshed, I feel revived, I feel alive. At that point, I am ready to … brew a second cup of coffee.
Oh man, it is so delicious. I have three cups of coffee each day, the last one being at about 1:00 p.m.. I shed a tear when I take that last drink, knowing I won’t enjoy that fresh aroma again until deep into the future, tomorrow morning. Look, I’m not saying I’m addicted to coffee (twitch, twitch), but I’m thinking about tomorrow morning’s coffee when it’s 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00 p.m. each evening.
I’ve tried all the energy drinks, and I don’t care for them. I don’t want a cold fruity drink, and I don’t want that giant dose of caffeine so many of them have.
I really enjoy a good cup of coffee, and a good cup of coffee is brewed from the coffee-to-water ratio, not the brand of coffee.
I would love to write more, but I must go brew a hot fresh cup of coffee now.
