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 !

Good morning to everyone out there on this sunny Wednesday morning with temperatures in the 40's today. 
I'm again watching the Morning show and sipping on my first mug of coffee.

You could get a grinder (about $50) and a French press ... makes even Stop & Shop house brand (whole bean, that is) taste halfway decent.

@JayQ254989  Did that for a few years but it got old! Did the grind your coffee at the store thing than Covid-19 came and the grinders were not available

Now we are back to pre-ground again and enjoying it with less work.

Bottoms up!

yup,me lol. Same routine about every morning. Stir around 5:30, say good morning to the furry ones. Thats not usually that hard since all 3 are camped somewhere on the bed beside me. We plod to the kitchen for coffee and treats,being extra careful not to mix up the distribution. They dont want coffee and I definitely dont want treats. We EASE into our morning and spend some quality time on the porch watching the day begin. By the time my second cup of coffee is done its their breakfast time. Bring on the day. 😺😸😼

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.

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.
