Coffee On The Porch…

If there’s anything I’ve missed posting on Instagram, it’s coffee. It should’ve been books, right? I’m a writer, after all. But I didn’t talk a lot about writing and when I was uber prolific when I started out more than 10 years ago, I didn’t talk a lot about it then…especially what I was working on. I kept all of it close to the vest, so to speak, but coffee? Yeah, I can talk about coffee all day every day and twice on Sundays.

Coffee is one of my love languages…

Pictures from my back porch or from day trips up into the mountains are other parts of my love languages.

And I decided that this series needed a little collage action…

You can’t get the full scope from these, but there’s a lot of green, a lot of growth, a lot that’s new, and a lot of roots setting in.

Thank you for indulging this love of mine.

Coffee On The Porch…

I started a little series on Instagram called Coffee on the porch… And it’s exactly as it sounds. I took pictures of coffee on my back porch over looking the pond, the trees, the mountains in the distance, and sometimes even cows from the neighboring farm were in the background.

I don’t exactly know why I started doing it, but it’s been an interesting way to see the changes to the land and it combines two of my favorite things…coffee and the view from my porch.

So, since I’m not on Instagram right now, I thought I’d continue the series here on the blog…

 

Grounds and Hounds

I follow a lot of coffee companies and coffee shops on Instagram. We all know this isn’t a surprise, right? Well, this company, Grounds and Hounds came across my feed one day as an ad because every site tracks every little thing. I was curious, as one would be who loves coffee as much as I do, and I clicked (which just fed the little stalker monsters). For every pound of coffee bought, they funnel money back into dog rescue efforts. I’m a cat person, but I’m here for rescuing ALL animals and was happy to part with some of my money for a pound of their Snow Day coffee blend…

I was in love with their holiday post card, too!

I’ll be grinding some of this to make some iced pour over and am so looking forward to tasting it. They even have a subscription service along with an online store with merchandise.

If you’re interested, click to be taken to their site… Grounds and Hounds Coffee Co.

Are you a cat or dog person?

Have a great week!

Holiday Blend Coffee

I’m a sucker for it.

Always. Every year.

But at least I can admit that I’m a sucker for it. I buy Starbuck’s Christmas Blend and Caribou Coffee’s Reindeer Blend in whole bean for cold brew and iced pourover and for use in the Aeropress.

And I have fallen victim this season to buying K-Cups… Peet’s Holiday Blend. I love it. It’s a quick, hot cup of coffee on cold mornings. And I’ve missed the convenience. I know all about re-usable K-cups, so don’t flog me just yet. I just have to not be lazy the night before and pre-fill one. But I have been lazy and well, I’m gonna own it and not feel the shame.

Do you drink Holiday Blend coffee or tea? And have you seen the tea advent calendars? They’re so cute! If I was a regular tea drinker, I would totally be all over one!

Have a great weekend!
