Coffee Time

My days of learning new things never seem to amaze me and now there is an official time when it is best to have a good’ol cup of coffee. Ok, this is right in the middle of the morning at 10:30 or there about; I can’t remember the exact time that was written. But anyways, it’s supposed to be good for you.

I wonder here to myself how can I still be alive after drinking coffee at all sorts of hours of the day….. A question that I just can’t seem to answer.. My heart is starting to beat a bit faster .. OH, maybe I have had toooo much coffee this morning!!

I ask now.. Can I have a cup of coffee when I get up in the morning or do I have to wait until the official “have a cup of coffee time”??? These modern times when you have to do everything at a certain time are getting to be too much for me and I bet for some of you out there too!

When I think back to when I was a kid; my mom seemed to have the percolator on 24 hours a day… Remember the percolator???

Either the stove top model or the electric version. I remember the Stove top sort where you have to keep an eye on the percolator, because once it started to perk you had to be careful that it didn’t boil over or else the coffee was ruined and there were coffee grounds in the coffee and all over the stove top too. Boy, did my mom get upset when the coffee boiled over because she didn’t get to the stove fast enough to remove the coffee pot from the element.. She always seemed as if the world would end when the coffee boiled over!

But then times changed and my dad bought her an electric percolator (white porcelain with blue flowers) A must have for every household back then!! I remember that percolator distinctly… That was the percolators of percolators, and I am sure some of your parents had that model too.

According to my mom that was the best coffee ever. I can’t say because my mom’s motto was “Kids don’t drink coffee because it will stunt your growth”( I never understood that sentence, but back then you never argued about what your parents said.); so I never got to taste that great percolator coffee, but I can remember it did smell good: Actually better then the smell of brewing coffee in a coffee machine. Oh the fond memories of coffee

Now there is thousands of ways to make coffee and now there are times to drink coffee; gosh let’s bring back the good’ol percolator and be able to drink a good cup of coffee when we want!

Enjoy your cup of coffee!

National Coffee day

Well, being it national coffee day I couldn’t forget to write a bit about my favorite drink…. Coffee!

I am so glad that there is a day to celebrate that great beverage and makes me just want to drink more. Remember years ago before all those coffee shops opened up there was only a choice of decaf or normal coffee and that was with or without milk or sugar.  Those were the good’ol coffee days.

Now-a-days coffee isn’t like it used to be with all the blends and flavors that you can buy or all the sorts that you can buy in those coffee shops. Who ever dreamed years ago that coffee would become such a great beverage and everywhere you look you see someone holding a coffee in their hand. The wonders of coffee….

The ways of making coffee has changed too through the years from the stove top percolator moving onto the electric coffee machine to the espresso machine and then to the more advanced systems that are around today… the wonders of a great cup of coffee.

 I remember my mom with her percolator set on the stove and waiting patiently for the water to start to boil and then it started to perk the coffee.. Wow the kitchen always smelt sooo good when she was making coffee and that smell definitely cannot be replaced by the machine with capsules, but then again convince has taken over and I wonder can you still buy percolators????  Anyone know?   

So being it national coffee day …. Enjoy your coffee wherever you are!
