Coffee !

I've been all over these forums & can't find the 'right forum', so mybe i'll find an answer on the front porch ?  Smiley Very Happy

I have 2 cans of 'cheapie' coffee ; tried mixing them so they would be more flavorful, but not-so-much did it work. Might buy a more spendy brand & mix them, but in meantime, anyone have any ideas on how to make these cheap brands taste better ?

Thanks !

Ive always got up that early,ever since I was a little guy.. Guess I just hate to miss anything lol. I luv the morning. The day is just being born as I watch the sun rise over the mountain to the east. My little furry ones are always with me,helping me get started. Oh yes,and the coffee doesn't hurt either.

WELCOME BACK TO THE FRONT PORCH COFFEE CLUB

Hoping you all had a great morning coffee time. It was very foggy here in South Wisconsin until 10:00 AM. We drove to Milwaukee in the fog to see friends.

My old coffee maker reminds me of my first old battered pickup truck I bought in high school. Not pretty, but always got the job done.

Good morning everyone one out there on this cloudy and cold Wednesday morning! May we take a moment of silence and pray for those that are in the path of the storm system that has generated multiple destructive tornadoes.
I'm sitting here sipping my first mug of coffee watching the Morning news.

Always awesome hearing from you @DaveMcK . What brand coffee do you and Mary use? Same question to the rest of our AARP Online Family. Lol, me - use to buy the "expensive stuff" but I guess my body changed and no longer ENJOYED the"taste". Coffee no longer keeps me awake. 🙄 I can drink it at bedtime and go right to bed. I now use the famous Walmart "use to be cheap" 😱 brand and add my "very expensive" creamer of Hazelnut and French Vanilla. The Walmart creamer is yucky in my opinion.🤮 I "rotate" the creamer and using Coffeemate. Thanks, Nicole 🙂

Mary and I drink a 50/50 blend of  Starbucks Samatra regular coffee  and Duncan Donuts decaf. 

It is a bold and smooth blend.

Try it you will like!

3 comments 👉 Hi @DaveMcK , I use to luv STRONG coffee but I guess like with "fast food" I no longer enjoy them. Sounds delicious!!! Any other coffee drinkers out there? Tell us about likes and dislikes. Do you have a favorite mug? I have just 1, Dave @DaveMcK has a whole store display of them. Do you do instant or have a machine and so on. I do instant, too lazy to clean a machine. My daughter has one. Or maybe you are a Starbucks regular. I have not had my 1st cup as yet, but heading that way! Just finished unpacking my Walmart bags. Nicole ️ 👈

Big coffee guy here. Id take it intravenously but I hate needles. Its not so much the coffee itself but the experience that goes with it. I'm an extremely early riser thus giving the coffee pot top priority. Actually its a Keurig,i found that doing a cup at a time i wasted far less coffee. I rise,plod slowly thru the darkness,all the while waiting for my 3 kamikaze cats to begin their morning ritual of weaving tightly around my ankles. After precariously arriving at the counter and snapping the machine on, i spill an spurt of milk followed by an equal dash of french vanilla creamer into the cup. After placing it in the Keurig I deal out kitty snacks. This accomplishes 2 very important goals. First It removes the " gang" from around my ankles and second buys me a few minutes of total quiet,punctuated only by beautiful soft purring. (some of which is the cats.Yes,I love coffee that much) About the time that I can see the bottom of the cup I hear the first bird chirp of the morning,telling me its time for cup number two. A simple but fulfilling ritual shared with me by 3 of my closest friends.😺 Its my favorite time of day.

Penny 18,Olivia 17,and Buster 9. Penny is Olivia's mom. I rescued them both from the streets. The vet told me that had just a few weeks because of malnutrition and disease but here they are lol. Buster just needed a home after a very tough start with a bad human,That was almost 5 years ago. now he serves as the pain in the butt little brother to the other 2. YES!!!! They certainly own us,or at least act like they do. Cat school is so hard for humans to cope with isnt it?

ON THIS DAY NOVEMBER 22, 1963: DEATH OF THE PRESIDENT
Shortly after noon on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as he rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas.
May we take a moment from sipping our morning coffee to wonder what may have been had he lived.

Good morning coffee friends 😁
Happy (thankful) "Thirsty Thursday"

I'm ready to celebrate this God given new day with some good fresh hot coffee. Woke up this morning feeling grateful to be alive and thankful for so many blessings in my life. I've been through the fire and tested but I've come out better and more refined. The more the adversity the stronger I become. I am truly blessed!!!

That would be forsure! We have the remains of yesterday's first snow on the ground this morning. Not all that much of a cover forsure. Say about an inch or so. Definitely coffee time that is for sure.

WELCOME BACK TO THE FRONT PORCH COFFEE CLUB

Good morning to all of my military Brothers and Sisters on this Veterans day 2022!

When is Veterans Day?

Veterans Day is celebrated every Nov. 11 with parades, ceremonies, concerts, speeches and more events across the United States. The federal holiday is typically observed on the same day every year, but if Nov. 11 falls on a weekend, it is observed on the closest weekday. This year, Veterans Day falls on Friday, so it will be observed Friday, Nov. 11, 2022.

What is Veterans Day?

Veterans Day is a national holiday that originally began as Armistice Day on Nov. 11, honoring all members of the U.S. armed services. It coincides with other holidays around the world, including Remembrance Day, marking the end of World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. In 1954, Congress passed the bill that President Eisenhower signed, officially changing the name to Veterans Day to honor all military veterans.

You already know why Veterans Day is important. You are the service members, veterans or family and friends of veterans who stay up-to-date on Veterans Day events in your area.

Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for you, our veterans.
