Hundred degree days and more on the way... It's a pretty hot summer here in Texas, but it sure doesn't stop my coffee habit! I will argue there is not much in life more pleasing than the combination of a good book and a good cup of brew. Just the aroma inspires pleasant thoughts as far back as my childhood when Mom was up early on a school day, stealing her own quiet time with her livre and demitasse.
Why am I talking about coffee today?
Because I've got something to share with you----an amazing coffee! Before I spill the beans, I'm going to list a few we have thought might be "the one" to enjoy most of the time. An FYI here; I do not make special trips to specialty coffee shops to purchase coffee. In fact that gets under my skin. My goal has been to find the ultimate cup of coffee at the grocery store (and I don't mean the green mermaid). There isn't enough time in the day to cover Keurig coffee pods, so today I'm sticking to the traditional cup of joe (already ground) from your drip coffee maker. Like a good book, I'm going to apply star ratings to these picks. Keep in mind no coffee is going to get 5 stars because the search is always on, therefore 4 stars is my top rating.
So what's the secret? Patience please, Rome wasn't built in a day and I'm sipping my morning delight. I'm savoring the moment because when I tell you about the loveliest cup of (store bought coffee) I have experienced, some of you may have an "Ah ha" moment and others will snicker...
