"Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!!!"

"Coffee, coffee, coffee"...that's a line from the show Gilmore Girls. Lorali walks into Weston's bakery and orders "coffee, coffee, coffee". The waitress brings her 3 cups of coffee, she says "No, I didn't want 3 cups...I just really needed coffee."
That's how I feel most days. I love coffee. I'm probably addicted to the caffeine, because I do get migraines if I go too long without it. I've switched to half-caff, so we'll see if that helps any. But I love coffee. Its my comfort food in liquid form. We make a pot in the morning and one after dinner. All year long, summer and winter. I like the fancy Starbucks coffee (Cafe Mocha, Carmel Latte), but I'm pretty happy with my plain ole Maxwell House Slow Roast.

In my next house I'm determined to have a coffee station. Look at the monster that sits in my tiny kitchen.

Its a double burner Bunn restaraunt coffee maker. Its AWESOME! As soon as you pour the water in, steaming hot coffee is filling into the carafe. Fantastic for parties! As you can see its large and awkward and we've tried to banish it to the basement several times, but we always bring it back. Its a part of our lives. It just needs a bigger home. :)

Ok, time to go get my second cup...

First let me say I love the Gilmore Girls. It is the best written show on TV.
Second, I love coffee too. I am drinking it as we speak, or is that type?
You are right about the Bunn. It makes coffee in 2.8 seconds. Love that!
Well, Happy May Day!
Enjoy your next cup.

Double points for referencing Gilmore Girls! Love that show. I don't personally like coffee but I WANT to! My Sweet Hubby loves it. I'd love to do a built in coffee center for him.

Hi Rosemary and Jen!
It is a cute show, isn't it. My hubby makes fun of me for watching it, but I think its quite witty. I must not be home on the night it airs, so I only see the old reruns on the famly channel.

Hi cinderelly,
My husband and I were in Seattle about 6 weeks ago.
Wow...your not kidding about a Starbucks on every corner.

I thought I would be in coffee heaven, but it was all brewed a little too strong for me.
I ready to have MY coffee back. LOL

You sound like my hubby! He loves his coffee too. Me, I like the sweet versions at Starbucks or the convenience store cappucino, LOL. I'm happy not to be addicted to it.
