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 !

WELCOME BACK TO THE FRONT PORCH COFFEE CLUB   

Top of the morning to everyone out there on this late Tuesday morning with some very cold temperatures. Time for a second mug of coffee. 

The Effects of Hot and Cold Coffee on a Cold Day

Drinking a hot beverage when you’re cold sounds logical. You feel cold. The beverage is hot. By consuming it, the hot liquid will warm up your body. It certainly feels soothing as you drink it but does it actually do anything for your body temperature?

A little, actually.

According to one study, drinking a hot beverage elevated body temperature by an average of 2.6 degrees Fahrenheit. While this might sound minimal, on cold days, most of us will take what we can get. Additionally, holding a hot cup of coffee is bound to bring warmth to your hands. Just don’t expect the effects to last much longer than the beverage you’re consuming.

As for cold beverages, the same study showed they lower body temperatures. That doesn’t mean you can’t drink them on cold days. You may just want to wear a thicker coat or mittens.

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.
