    Three words: Fueled by coffee

    A coffee box fuels Bubby's early morning imagination — Jan. 29, 2013

    Today's question:

    How do you make your coffee (coffee pot, Keurig, Starbucks) and how do you take your coffee (black or add-ins)?

    Wish Starbucks delivered at 4am, but they haven't asked for my opinion yet :)

    For now, by the pot, with a little milk and sugar. However, I'm looking into a Keurig.

    Hope you're feeling better today, Lisa!

    I make mine in a pot and add in flavored cream. Bubby looks so cute concentrating on his fine invention.
    Please, please, you be getting better today!

    I use a Cuisinart 14 cup machine, a little maxwell house, a little hazelnut mix with 2% milk and splenda.
    I hope you feel better soon, I went through the flu into pneumonia in December. Not fun.
    My thoughts on "sick as a dog", our 13 year old golden was hardly ever sick... but the one time she was.... a stomach thing.... ah, then you realize exactly what that saying means. Feel better,
    I am enjoying your blog.

    I prefer Starbucks, but since the closest one is 23 miles away, I'm a Keurig girl. I take mine with Splenda and Half and Half.

    French press. Flavored cream. When I drink it. I've been off coffee since my stomach bug. Just doesn't taste good right now. I've been drinking Republic of Tea teas or green tea lattes. By the way, Milo has that same fire station and loves it.

    Coffee pot, with added sugar and cream. Yum.

    I am a bit of a Starbucks addict....1 1/2 pump skinny vanilla latte whenever possible, but morning coffee is just coffee from the old Cuisinart with creamer and Stevia.

    Bubby is so cute biting his tongue to concentrate!

    We drink way to much coffee and I have been seriously trying to cut back. We brew by the pot, often 3 or 4 in a day and we both drink it black. Jenna laughs at us as we seem to go through a lot of coffee makers - but we do use them heavily! My best deal yet is a 12 cup coffee maker I got on sale at Target for $9.99 - best coffee maker ever and Yes! I did go back and get a 2nd for backup!

    Coffee - one of my favorite topics. We grind our own beans and brew either Starbucks or Trader Joe's beans. Just finished two cups now I can be off to enjoy the day.

    I like Folgers Half Caff Coffee made in my very own kitchen with a tbsp. of milk no sugar...Great in the morning during my quiet time!
