I love coffee. I have loved it since I was a child and Mother would add a little coffee to our milk at breakfast to make us think we were grown up!! I have two little great nieces who also love coffee as preschoolers. It tickles me to see them with their mom at Starbucks!! I am sure they get decaf! None of my adult children drink coffee and I just cannot understand that!!
Right off the bat I will confess that Starbucks is WAY too strong and bitter tasting for me. If I am out and about I will stop for coffee at these places. Number one in my book is McDonalds early in the am...later in the day the coffee has been sitting in the pot a bit too long. But after I drop Kendall and Landon off at school, I stop at the McDonalds in our neighborhood for a medium cup of deliciousness. Panera is second and Cracker Barrel is third on my coffee list. Krispy Kreme has delish coffee and one is being built right now on the Beltline here in Decatur. I do not know how I am supposed to drive by Krispy Kreme when it is located in the TJ Maxx shopping center. Two of my favorite things in one location.
For coffee at home, I purchase
And now on to coffee mugs....
Louisville Stoneware's Bachelor Button is a favorite of mine. We used to live in Louisville, Kentucky in the early 80s. We were just starting out and had no money for extras. But how I loved this pottery pattern that I saw in many Louisville homes that I visited. Even at the outlet prices I could not afford them. So fast forward many years and my sweet husband surprised me with a gift of Louisville Stoneware mugs and serving pieces. It was such a surprise and now you know why this pattern is special to me.
Tell me your favorite coffee and if it is Starbucks that is ok...:)
