Oh I How I Love My Cup of Joe

11 Sep

Mmmm….It’s 3:30 in the afternoon and I’m still thinking about my morning cup of coffee.

Drinking coffee is a ritual for me. I’m not a morning person so having coffee helps kick-start my day. And a really good cup of Joe can really set the tone for my day.

Today is another gorgeous September day with sunshine and a gentle breeze. I poured myself a cup of Café Verona and headed out in the car. By the second sip, I was in such a good mood that I turned up the radio, opened the sun/moon roof and drove all the way to the office shimmying my shoulders.

My first beer was a Guinness at Fiddler’s Elbow in Rome. My first cup of coffee was actually an espresso at my University’s café bar. It’s no wonder that I came back to the States thinking all beer and coffee should be brewed dark and delicious.

I am someone who can drink coffee at any time of the day. And if I have a particularly delicious cup after dinner at a restaurant, I’ll go back to them even if the food was so-so just so I can savor their cup of Joe.

Over the years, I’ve come to love some coffee beans more than others. I’m rather fond of (in no particular order): Starbucks Café Verona, Dunkin Donuts, Raven’s Brew Deadman’s Reach.

The only thing better than dark coffee is combing it with my other favorite food pumpkin! While I am never happy to see summer leave, I do look forward to the changing colors of the leaves, New Jersey Devils hockey and Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

How about you? What coffee do you prefer?

Happy Moment of the Day:  Two Starbucks gift cards just waiting to be exchanged for Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
