Everyday I Need.....


I just can't get through my day without it. I now find myself drinking 2 or 3 cups a day usually one in the morning when I get up and then maybe one by the afternoon and then another one around 9 or 10 pm if I am going to work. I work over nights at a group home. The late coffee gets me to work (an hour drive) and keeps me going the first few hours. Usually overnight I drink a tea or just hot water with honey in it to keep me warm. I find about 3 am as your body gets tired it gets cold.

I am not really picky anymore on the coffee I drink but just please no super bitter and super strong coffee. I love my favored coffee's though and love to have a cappuccino here and there also. I have a regular coffee pot, a Tassimo and a Keurig.

Which is my favorite machine? I will be honest and say I love my Keurig even though it takes individual cups and produces more waste than a regular coffee machine. As people also remind me that it costs more than regular coffee and I totally agree but it is my weakness. A few years ago we stopped buying coffee at Tim Horton's daily and went to once or twice a week and now we only get it as a treat here and there. This is my justifying my k-cups as my treat to myself daily. I usually drink regular brewed when I get up in the morning and then my k-cups during the day.

We have the Mini Plus Brewer. Why do I love this little brewer? It is tiny and fits in the corner of my counter in my tiny kitchen along with this great gift hubby got me for Christmas. The brewer is quick and easy to use. You do have to refill the brewer every time you want a coffee, tea or hot chocolate but that is okay with me. I love the carousel a lot it holds 28 k-cups. Before this neat little carousel I have big boxes on my counter taking up tons of space. Now I have moved them to the pantry and just restock the holder when needed.

As we are talking coffee, did you hear the news that was circulating the web yesterday? Tim Horton's is changing the cup sizes as follows:

The change is taking place January 23rd, 2012. The New Extra Large will be 24 oz!! Now for all you coffee lovers that is going to be one huge coffee.

What do you NEED everyday to get through your day? Can you go a day without coffee?
