Coffee

I love coffee. Actually, it is probably more accurate to say I am obsessed with coffee. I love the sound of a percolator. I love the sound of an expresso machine. I love the sound of boiling water to pour into my melita single serve filter holder.

I broke down and bought a Toddy Cold Brew Coffee thing. You can make one with Taco Bell cups, but you run the risk of a really big mess in your kitchen. That's what happened to me. After I bought my toddy I found you could go to the website and order auto delivery and get a free cold brew coffee maker (just like Gevalia). I was sad, then realized I would probably forget to cancel the delivery and wind up with waaaaaaay too much coffee. Not really.

You can't ever have too much coffee.

Instant. French Press. Decaf. Half Caf. Smooth. Bold. Bright. Kona.


Be careful with the cold brew-it's sooooo smooth I think you could ingest enough to be harmful. I was feeling a little bit like Cornholio yesterday when I realized that I had, over 24 hours, ingested most of a pound of coffee. I don't know how many cups that translates into, but I suspect it's a lot.

Be careful, you'll wind up going nuts! It is too easy to drink tons of coffee, and during the hot weather I love iced coffee!

i'm not obssessed with coffee...
i don't drink coffee at all... once in a blue moon perhaps!
but i like its smell very much... more than very much... a lot...

especially when i'm on the streets and suddenly i can smell coffee among many other good and bad smells... it's got a very strange sense for me... a sweet nostalgia... a child coming down a slide... opening the door of a garden... taking a dear friend's hand... perhaps a kiss...

and all this comes to me with just the smell... not drinking...

and that was the reason... i came here... the same smell...
mmmmmm... lovely post!

Are you kidding me??? A whole bag????? I'm speechless.

I have 2 cups of half decaf every day. I do love the smell of roasted coffee beans though.
I like the smell of grilled meat too but I haven't had beef since 1972. I'm a weirdo!

If I drank as much as this sounds like you drank I would be so high you'd never get my feet back to earth and/or I'd be dead.
I too get a caffine rush even from decaf coffee, coffee ice cream, anything with even a smiggen of coffee in it. I'm a once in a great while coffee ingester (a latte/decaf/small/non fat milk is my drink of choice)Most people say why bother! LOL
I love the face in your coffee cup,,,did you draw that with a spoon while high on coffee?
