Do you rely on coffee to wake you up and keep you going? You’re not alone. Like most adults in North America, I start my day with a cup of Joe, Brain Juice, Java, Morning Mud, The Fix…coffee. I like it strong, no extras and piping hot.
I guess I started drinking coffee back in Highschool. We’d get a booth at ‘Big Boys’, one or two of us would order food, the rest of us would just drink coffee (I’m sure they appreciated it, ha). I wish I had a tape recording of some of those coffee parties, who know’s what we talked about EVERY day for three years.
Dear youthful people, this (above) is a tape recorder.
My coffee habit grew at work like a bad weed. Just like bad weeds, it got out of control. I had a super stressful job in customer service and pounded back up to 8 cups a day. Can you say ‘fast talker’? I had a Mini-Maker right on my desk, it brewed one cup at a time.
I’m an early riser and now that I’m able to enjoy my coffee at home, I usually polish off 4 cups before I even start my day. I don’t know how I got on to the Starbuck’s brand, I think I was trying to save a few dollars by not going OUT to Starbucks.
Well that worked out well, just look at the price of the stuff!!
Needless to say, it’s time to reconsider this vice. I’ve tried other brands but I’ve not yet found one that’s a good as Starbucks French Roast. Mr B and I are saving for a house, and being a team player I’ve decided I need to save on grocery (oh no, not craft stuff). So, over the next 2 months I’m going to try a few different brands, I’ll let you know how it goes. Maybe I’ll try to cut back or maybe I just need a support group. Hello, my name is Boomdee and I’m An Addict.
What’s brewing in your pot?
