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.

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!

Drip Coffee Maker

This coffee is perfect in my Mr. Coffee® 10-cup Optimal Brew™ Thermal Coffee Maker!  Sometimes it takes awhile to drink a pot of coffee so the thermal carafe in this machine is AWESOME!  Everyone needs a great drip coffee maker.  I have hot coffee for hours, perfect for those long conversations with friends and family.

    My coffee journey begins each day with having coffee outside in my backyard if the weather is nice . I have about 3 cups, but many times I will meet friends for coffee at a local coffee shop near where we live and enjoy lunch, coffee, and just hang out.

I usually drink a whole pot myself then I walk on the treadmill for an hour..The coffee revs me up. I like my coffee with half and half without sugar :)

    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. :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

  37. 138

    I drink coffee soon after waking up.

    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!

    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!
