My first coffee was instant. Some kind of mix from a can with the sugar and creamer all mixed in. I can’t remember when I tried it, but I could not have been much older than 10 or 11.
I think it liked it, but who wouldn’t with all that cream and sugar?
As I got older I still drank my coffee with creamer and sugar, I liked it pretty sweet. But life and tastes change and one day the powdered cream I always loved didn’t taste very good anymore. I think I was spoiled by the now popular coffee shops that always serve ½ and ½. At this point I would have coffee with nothing else but that.
And one day I just tried it without sugar, just a taste. It wasn’t so bad. But it wasn’t dessert anymore.
I was OK with that, I actually kind of liked it. My mom thought I was nuts.
The next step of my coffee journey? Black. Here’s to change. #CoffeeJourneys #CollectiveBias You can see my 15 second video on Instagram right here.
I was pretty excited when I got to go to my local Walmart and pick up these products for both myself and a winner. The Mr. Coffee® 10-cup Optimal Brew™ Thermal Coffee Maker is pretty cool. I love the look of the machine as well as its features:
- Brews 10 cups in less than 7 minutes to ensure thorough extraction and full bodied flavor, which is considered by coffee experts to be the optimal time for extraction.
- Pour a cup of coffee while the coffeemaker is still brewing using the Pause n’ Serve feature.
- Ensure your coffee is hot and fresh when you need with the Fresh Brew timer.
- Coffee is kept hot with the vacuumed-insulated stainless steel carafe.
- Eliminating calcium build up is easy with the special cleaning cycle.
- Maintain the temperature of your carafe by using the removable water reservoir.
- Reduce chlorine in water by up to 97% with the built in water filtration.
- Fast and easy filling and cleaning with the side mounted removable filter basket
