A Coffee Giveaway

Nancy is having a coffee giveaway on her blog...Inside Nana's Head....I like Gevalia  coffee and used to be on their list, got shipments and really enjoyed it.....so can recommend this coffee wholeheartedly.....I drink decaf now....the winner will get coffee and a nice mug to enjoy...I posted a link on my sidebar also...

My first memories of coffee are pleasant ones..Mom and Dad always made a pot early in the morning before he went  to work....I started drinking it when I was in my late teens.....with milk or creamer like my dad..my mom drank hers black....I still drink mine "white" as the English say.....
Going to college, coffee was the drink of choice.....lots of conversations over steaming cups......
Later, when the boys were in elementary school, I would volunteer in the classroom..another mom and I would take orders from the teachers and make a trip to Starbucks for coffee....it was fun bringing it back and delivering lattes and more to the different classrooms......
I just have a regular drip coffee maker...nothing fancy....but it does a good job....it would be fun to have one of the expensive ones with steamed milk attachments, etc..but sometimes less is more.......I think coffee drinking is more social than anything......but if  you want to jazz it up a little...

A simple recipe for Mocha Coffee:is just 1 cup of hot brewed coffee, 1 t. of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 T. of white sugar and 2 T. milk (to taste)...mix it well.....easy and very good......
finally..
the perfect coffee cup!
