mornin



I have been doing my best to wake up before the kids this week.  When Zach heads out at dawn, I pull myself out of bed, trying not to disturb Henry who is typically attached to me in some way or another.  First things first, I start boiling my water for coffee.  What did I find this morning?  That we are down to just a few more cups with the Stumptown coffee we brought with us.  Gasp! 
So tonight I asked Zach if it was possible to order Intelligentsia coffee online.  He began his search.  There was a long pause... then this was what he read to me:

The aromatics of coffee blossom and violet make way for an incredibly graceful and elegant cup. The body has a light and silky quality, like fresh whipped cream, that beautifully compliments the ever-present note of citron, juniper berry and vanilla. As it cools, the cup blossoms into notes of confectioner's sugar, rosehips, and soft raisin, resonating on a pristine finish with a touch of milk chocolate.


Add to Cart. Please.

Well, I need to wake up before children...otherwise I'm not the mum I want to be ;-) Without espresso with milk (Latte macchiato or café au lait)in the morning? No way!
Your new coffee - add to cart, please.

Ah, Look at Henry, the sun in his beautiful hair, so at peace. Love the little hand, usually quite busy I suspect!
I used to have tea in the morning, but I have turned to coffee over the last years... not human without it. It'a fast process, boiling water and instant Nescafe. Yes, I know - you better bring your own coffee, Rachel!

Indeed, rising before the kids, enjoying your tea or coffee makes for a peaceful start to the day.
Lilli; I bring my chemex with me everywhere! Even to Europe. :) I can tolerate different coffees but i need my chemex, half of it is the ritual.

Just love it.
I am a tea drinker but would turn to coffee in the presence of you all - if we were all neighbours...
