My Coffee Journey


I value my relationships in my life above everything else.  In my opinion, if you don’t have friends and family to share life with, what is the purpose?  Spending quality time with those that I love is a high priority and it all starts with my morning coffee.  Being a busy mommy sometimes means that I don’t get to spend as much time with my family as I would like to.  Mornings are essential because we all sit down and have breakfast together.  I brew myself a few cups of coffee, and we enjoy ourselves.

Morning Coffee with my Girl #LoveYourCup #shop

Coffee in the morning

It seems like coffee has always played an integral part of my life.  When I fly home my mom and my siblings and I will bring our coffee out onto our deck in the morning and just talk.  In high school, my friends and I would stake out a booth at a local diner and stay up late drinking coffee and gossiping.  When I have a rare hour or two to myself, I curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee on my rocking chair and enjoy a good story.  It seems like whenever I think about meaningful times in my life, coffee is usually involved in some way.

New Millstone Coffee

Recently I picked up Millstone® coffee on my latest trip to Walmart.  I love the new look! It comes in some exciting varieties, but for mornings I had to stay with the Foglifter!

I found mine right next to the huge coffee grinder in the coffee aisle!

    I actually didn’t start drinking coffee until a year ago. I had become addicted to energy drinks and was drinking four or five a day. I would get really bad caffeine headaches if I didn’t have them so I started drinking coffee to transition me off of the energy drinks. Now I LOVE coffee and usually have four or five cups of coffee a day. Technically I just switched one addiction for another and that is my #CoffeeJourney

  2. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    My Coffee Journey Is Connecting With My Family, I Love Gathering Around The Table For Great Conversation And A Cup Of Coffee!

  3. Stephen Saunders says

    I and my coffee have journeyed together to all but four of the continental US states, and also into Montreal Canada. ^_^

  4. Alecia says

    I don’t drink coffee but most of my relatives drink coffee. My dad always had to stop at Kwik Trip every time we went to town because they had the best coffee. When we went to visit our grandparents, they always put on a fresh brew and whole house smelled like coffee. Whenever we went anywhere with my aunt, she had to bring a travel mug full of coffee with her. She now has a single serve coffee maker with hundreds of different flavors to choose from. She loves to brag about it when we visit. Most of my best memories of my relatives have to do with coffee.

    I have to have my 2 – 2.5 cups of coffee every morning! I like a variety of flavors as long as it’s very hot and black (no sweeteners in my cup!)

  21. Lisa B says

    I can’t believe there was a time in my life where I did not LOVE coffee. It starts with the first thing I do in the morning and is followed by several cups throughout the day. I use various flavors of creamer.

  22. Lee Mckoen says

  26. Carla says

    I have to have at least one cup a day or I go through caffeine withdraw & get a headache. I was free of it once, but started again1 I love coffee all ways, hot, cold from the fridge, over ice cream, mixed with chocolate milk. Regular coffee bought out somewhere I like plain & black, but when brewing my own, I put cinnamon in it. I buy regular & hazelnut decaf. I’ll buy cheap cappuccinos at the gas station, but only buy lattes, & frappes if I have a coupon. Sometimes I’ll add caramel to either hot or cold coffee at home.

  27. danielle Marie says

    i stopped drinking coffee for a while… then i learned how to make iced coffee. now i am obsessed. hazelnut is my favorite.

  28. kelly tupick says

    My coffee journey begins first thing in the morning. I wake up really early for work around 3:00 and I need that first cup of coffee to get me going. I drink a light roasted to medium roasted coffee with a little cream and sugar. I usually drink on average about 5 cups of coffee through out the day.

  29. Brett says

    My partner leaves his coffee in the glass urn for hours. It’d probably taste a little better if it sat in this instead!

  34. jules m. says

    gotta have one cup as soon as i get up- i am brain dead without it. raw sugar and half and half.

  35. Angela Ash says

    I love drip coffee makers. A lot of people are into the single cup brewers but not me. I like a ‘pot’ of coffee, especially for taking on the go. Coffee in the morning is great for helping me wake up. Half the time I’ll take a cup to go but I limit it to the daylight hours so I can sleep good and look forward to it in the morning.

  36. Jordan Simpson says

    My coffee journey is my first step in the morning! Coffee + french vanilla creamer + a little whipped cream = perfection!

    I always said that I would not drink it, but I recently tried it and now I’m hooked.

  38. Laurie Emerson says

    My coffee journey begins every morning about 4am and I admit I drink it all through the day and have a final cup; after dinner.

    I set the brewer first thing. After it finishes. I take my cup of coffee out on the porch and watch the sun rise and listen to the birds sing

  40. Mike Bratek says

    It is the first thing i do when i get out of bed, is make my coffee that i will drink down a pot in the next 2 hours and i am good to go!

    Putting on a pot of coffee is my first move in the morning. I sit at the kitchen table and turn on the laptop to enter some awesome giveaways like this one.

  50. melina r says

    My coffee journey are the days that I work. I drink two to three cups of coffee in the morning.

  51. Ellie Wofford says

    My coffee journey is kinda funny. I have an old school style coffee pot that no one is allowed to make coffee in- only hot water because I use it to make water for tea, as well & don’t want my tea tasting like coffee! Instead I heat the water in the coffee pot then use a French Press to make coffee. And it doesn’t stay hot long. :)

  52. Christy Leonard says

    My coffee moment starts when I wake up in the morning, before heading off to work, I just have to have my morning coffee, it helps kick start my day and get me in gear.

  53. says

    I USUALLY pet the dog Ruffey 1st thing and take her out for a walk. Ruffey is now deceased so I pick up the newspaper, read from cover to cover, and then enter a few sweepstakes for the day.

  54. Lorena Keech says

    My doctor recommended I drink 2 to 3 cups of black coffee daily to help keep my pre-diabetes in check.
    And that is no trial, as I love coffee.

  55. Vicki D. says

    My coffee journey began many years ago. Now, my morning would not be complete without my morning cup of dark black coffee to start my day. Once in awhile, I will treat myself to a cup of coffee in a coffee shop.

    I DRINK COFFE MORNING NOON & NIGHT! I add 3 spoons of creamier, 2 splendas & a splash of vanilla extract! Yeah, I even drink it before bedtime…my system is so use to caffine it does not phase me at all. I love it!

  61. Melanie Comello says

    My coffee journey goes all throughout the day., I love coffee first thing in the morning almost as much as i do late at night :)
    I love drinking my coffee without sweetener or cream, unless…’s flavored coffee, in which case to me, it’s simply only good if it has sweetener in it lol

  62. Elsie says

    As a young adult, I used to drink coffee with cream and sugar. Then, as a working young adult, decided to drink it black – I think I thought it made me seem cool.Now, I like to drink it in a variety of ways – with cream, with skim milk, flavored, non-flavored, with sugar, with no sugar…decaf, regular, blonde, dark, any type of coffee will do.

  63. Karen Deva says

    I’m trying to switch from buy so many coffees at Starbucks to brewing my coffee at home and taking it in a travel mug. I definitely need some coffee to start my day right every day!

  64. says

    With a hectic work schedule and two kiddos, coffee has become my best companion. I love Millstone because it delivers true to its claim of being full-bodied and bold in flavor. And now I have to make some!
