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 !

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.

(12/3/22) Any NEW MEMBER coffee drinkers out there today? 🤔

.

Please stop by our OUR FRONT PORCH FORUM which our Dave @DaveMcK oversees. He has been with us since 2009!!! 😱

.

Heading to get my first cup, need it!!!

.

Gone is my "peace and quiet" as more new people are moving in today.

.

Our complex got sold back in August of this year 2022. They had been busy 7 days and nights of late working my nerves getting several "empty" apartments ready for move in. Nothing like having a drill at night and on Sunday. I just luv this place. 🙄

.

Happy Saturday Porchers and Other Members.

.

️ (12/2/22) Great hearing from you @DaveMcK and hope you and Mary are well!

.

Well Coffee Drinkers, I had to "bury" my cute coffee cup from Amazon. Lol, yes, cheap and yesterday the soapy water got into the "insulating wall"...

.

Now I am done with them. Package came with two cups. Other had a "hole" in it upon 1st use. 🙄

.

GRATEFUL I have an ugly green mug I use in microwave to heat up water = microwave proof.

.

Lol, now to figure out the best mix of instant coffee, creamer and sweet & low as this cup is larger. Not having much luck and may resort to measuring out the 6oz of water my Amazon cup was. What a pain!

.

Nicole 🙂

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.

(11/24/22)  Hi @ss11943859 , I just checked to make sure you are still posting and yes you are. Lol, such an "old" post but had run across the same issue myself last month and wondering IF you figured something out? 🤔 Happy 🦃 Day, Nicole 🙂

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!

👉 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.

@LeeS6949 what are the names of your cats and ages? Lol, they say they "own" us/lol 😂🤣 Nicole 🙂

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?

(11/24/22) Thank you @DaveMcK and the same to you and Mary. Still in bed, have not had my ️ as yet but heading that way soon. My daughter in Melbourne, Florida will spend the day with her "other mom" and her family. A lady who took an interest in her when she was one of her High School teachers. Her family have been awesome and loving. GRATEFUL she has them. Me, a quiet day here in Roanoke, Virginia by myself doing my usual Retirement Be Lazy Day/lol. Nicole 🙂

30° here in Roanoke, Virginia. Turkey Day tomorrow! 🦃 For those on the road, be safe. I don't eat turkey, I am a chicken gal. Today is my bank day and will be at their door at 9am when they open. This old lady needs to be home before the craziness starts on the roads and last minute bankers. Nicole 🙂

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.

Yes, it was a great loss. 😭

 

Still in bed staying warm/lol, the pleasures of Retirement. 43° here in Roanoke, Virginia at moment. Staying in until my 6am alarm tomorrow. Hate getting up so early, but beats dealing with the traffic and crowds. You and Mary are in my thoughts. And I need my coffee/lol.
