That cup of coffee made my morning, so far, it was that good.

I may get heavy cream to put into my own brews; or maybe get the 30% stuff, I am not sure on the choices, not yet. So today, I think that I will get a 2 lb bag of Eight O'clock Coffee, and get the show on the road. I will work something out, which suits me.

Your cup of coffee had 500 calories? Really? You sound like me, you blow it up with tasty stuff; because you wrote, that not all of that is HWC.

I do applaud your courage in making coffee that way, I have tended to undermine myself in life, by trying too hard. I would go on diet jags, and deny myself; but in the end, all that I did was run myself into the ground. I burned out, and I have learned to avoid that.

14 ounce cup of coffee (Community Club Chicory) via a load your own K cup, a heaping scoop of stevia extract powder, a tablespoon (actually more than) of butter, two tablespoons of virgin (not refined) coconut oil, 4 tablespoons of HWC, 2 tablespoons of MCT oil, a tablespoon of unsweet cacao powder, 1/2 teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon, and tablespoon of Great Lakes collagen powder.

Drink that at home and usually have similar one at work. At work its regular Folgers, stevia, HWC, butter, coconut oil, and a square of 90% dark chocolate.

I got a 2 pound bag of this at Wal Mart, it is great stuff. It costs $6 a pound, but it's worth it. A single cup of coffee, costs $2 at Wawa or Race Trac; so I do it the old fashioned way, I make it myself. I still did not remember to get heavy cream, but I did get the coffee.

I wished coffee tastes as good as it smells. Unfortunately I have never found a coffee like that. Although this may be sacrilege, Sanka came pretty close to it.
Probably the least bitter coffee I've ever had....and yes, I know it's instant. But most of the instants I've had are not only bitter, they are sour.

I like flavored coffees a lot. I've tried many varieties of flavored coffees as well.
Still have to put a lot of creamer in my coffee to get rid of the bitterness.

Points to Ponder..................



Why doesn't McDonald's sell hotdogs?

Are eyebrows considered facial hair?

If an ambulance is on its way to save someone, and it runs someone over, does it stop to help them?

Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?

Why are there no 'B' batteries?

If a jogger runs at the speed of sound, can he still hear his iPod?

If man evolved from monkeys, how come we still have monkeys?

How do you handcuff a one-armed man?

When does it stop being partly cloudy and start being partly sunny?

If a kid refuses to sleep during nap time, are they guilty of resisting a rest?

If you are bald, what hair color do they put on your driver's license?

Is it still illegal to park next to a fire hydrant, even if your car is on fire?

If a bunch of cats jump on top of each other, is it still called a dog pile?

If a baby's leg pops out at 11:59PM but his head doesn't come out until 12:01, which day was he born on?

Why do they call the little candy bars "fun sizes". Wouldn't it be more fun to eat a big one?

What are some crop circles square or triangle? Are they still crop CIRCLES?

If ghosts can walk through walls and glide down stairs, why don't they ever fall through the floor?

How can something be "new" and "improved"? if it's new, what was it improving on?

Why do they sterilize lethal injections?

Why aren't drapes double sided so it looks nice on the inside and outside of your home?

If pro and con are opposites, wouldn't the opposite of progress be congress?
