Morning Cup O' Joe...

5:09 AM

Well as you know, I love coffee... like love it.  I actually have needed it lately because I stay up way too late catching up on paperwork for the day job or blogging work.  I wake up groggy and tired and lately have been indulging in some very strong cups o' Joe... sometimes a cup o' Johan (Gevalia commercial reference)... but this post is about Starbucks.

So I was on my way to go get a latte yesterday evening to give me a jolt so I could complete my bloggy work and I was being quite indecisive.  So what happened? I went on to their website to look at the menu.  I actually ended up getting a nice Pike Place Roast with one pump of vanilla but let's talk about that later.   What caught my interest and prompted me to write this very random blog was the awesome graphics Starbucks had on their site.  I'm a sucker for a good product photo and a nice font face.  These graphics are lovely and easy ways to understand how much of what goes in to your cup o' Joe.

Oh how I love coffee.  I never am able to go to a place where I get it in a glass cup though.  I always get mine to go because I'm always on the go but I'd like to imagine sitting down with you, my friend... yeah you.  I know we only know each other in this bloggy world but let's imagine just sitting down in a nice cafe, drinking our cup o' Joe or espresso and talking about life, blogging and all of that goodness.  It's a nice thought isn't it?  I could never express it in such an eloquently beautiful way as my friend Nicole from Local Sugar Hawaii has in the past, but still I'd like to imagine having a cup with all of you!!

What did I end up getting you ask?  Well I got their Pike Place Roast.  As the daughter of a Seattle girl, I'm partial to this blend because of the name... and because it's a dark, strong roast which is just what I needed last night.  It gave me the jolt I needed to get this post and several others done that have been on my to-do list for far too long.

I like that on their website you can get the calorie breakdown per serving.  Pretty nifty!

Before I left, I ended up buying a bag of their bold flavors beans which comes from Ka'u which is in Puna, Hawai'i.  I love trying new flavors and am excited to brew this blend in the morning.

What kind of coffee do you like?  I like it all.  Good morning everyone!!
