Who loves coffee??? I most certainly do! I drink coffee all day, every day and I'm not exaggerating! I am not the average coffee drinker though, I like to spice it up a bit - flavors add to the all-around goodness of a cup of Joe!
Things I have added to my coffee include
*Milk (I usually stick with skim but if I am feeling like I need a sweet treat I will use whole milk)
*Flavored Creams from all brands (both cream and powder)
*A Cinnamon Stick
*Some of that iced coffee stuff from the gas station
*Caramel topping (the kind you get for ice cream)
*A mix of two or more of the items from this list
I don't usually stick with any one coffee brand either. I like to try new companies, different roast settings and different base flavors. I have to admit that I own a Keurig so I use all the little coffee k cups BUT I bought the reusable coffee filter to be able to have ground coffee through my Keurig as well.
I am always on the lookout for a new way to flavor my coffee so tell me, How do you spruce up your coffee? Do you have to stop drinking at any certain times to keep from being up most of the night? Have any great coffee related stories? Are you loyal to any specific brands of coffee?
*Now I know that too much of anything is bad for you - coffee should be drank in moderation and a healthier option like drinking the recommended 8 glasses of H2O per day should be at least considered. I am not recommending that anyone drink coffee as their main staple for the day. This posting is more for ideas to spruce up coffee rather than a debate on how healthy it is or isn't for you.*
