Some Things Just Go Too Far…

Call me silly, whatever you want, I do NOT think I could/would drink coffee from this mug!!


Though I adore a lot of things I can find on their website, this mug is just too over the top for me! 😉

But if I did, the first step would be admitting it. ;0)

Wordless Wednesday is hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom (and that’s 12 boxes/bags of coffee in my freezer.)

15 Things You Should Know About Coffee

Written by Amber on May 20, 2010 – 11:37 am -

The Oatmeal has the most informative, most funny little piece about coffee… 15(ish) Things Worth Knowing About Coffee.


I knew a good deal of that already but I did NOT know that robusta (vs. arabica) has 50% more caffeine (I need to get me some of that!) and the visual descriptions of the different methods of serving coffee (espresso, cappuccino) were the best and easiest to understand that I have ever seen! I think next time I want to order a Breve. =)

And I also can’t help wondering if the berry around the coffee bean isn’t useful for SOMETHING? Seems like an awful waste just to strip it off to get to the bean. Strip it off and make jam out of it or something? Okay, rant over.

Now off you go. To The Oatmeal! Go! Now!

Are you still here?….

Do you know your Coffee?

Written by Amber on November 14, 2009 – 11:40 am -

Do you know your coffee? I hope you know it better than me! I found this Coffee Quiz and thought, “oh how fun!” 4 out of 10. FOUR OUT OF TEN, people! There are some tricky questions in here. Grab your cup of brew, you may need the comfort when you see your results. Or maybe you’re more knowledgeable and you can celebrate with your cup of joe. Either way…
