Coffee, Anyone?

About ten days ago, I ran out of coffee in my house. Now, my normal pattern is to get up in the morning and immediately make a French press of coffee. I prefer a dark roast. I drink the entire press, about three mugs, without any additives. Black and dark – just how I like my coffee.


Anyway, I was a little broke. Just how you get to be a little broke is beyond me but I was. I didn’t want to spend what little cash I had on coffee and wasn’t sure I had enough money to buy coffee anyway. I decided for about seven days to make a huge mug of tea instead. Out of those seven days, I made a tea with caffeine in it four of them. The other three I drank an herbal tea. Then, I got sick of hot tea in the morning and just stopped. I’d get up and have a huge glass of ice water.

Yesterday, I had my first coffee in ten days. It was good but I wasn’t craving it. I didn’t feel like I needed the coffee to get my day going. This morning I got up and did my morning ritual items and was up for almost four hours before I made coffee.

I guess I have learned that I do not need coffee to get the day going but that I enjoy drinking coffee.

Have you ever given up coffee or tea? Do you like hot or cold beverages in the summer heat?

  1. Hot coffee, black and bold, any time of day, any type of weather. I literally can’t get enough.

    In all honesty, I should probably try to cut back, but I just don’t want to.

  2. This morning was a Folger’s moment in our house. The aroma of brewing coffee awakened the sleeping teenagers. Although we don’t drink Folger’s.. Anyway I enjoy coffee. I don’t drink it every day and the type I drink iced or hot depends on the outside ambient air temperature…

    Tea is ok but definitely not my favorite. Sometimes its nice for a change of pace.
