Clouds in my coffee

That was a possible name for my blog. Because I love cream in my coffee and to me, it looks like a cloud. Can’t imagine coffee without it. And don’t think about adding sugar, sugar is for little kids.

But I chose emjayand them because I’m MJ and “them” is everyone else… family, friends, co-workers, other drivers, people I meet.

Plus I didn’t want people thinking I am some kind of coffee maven. Because I’m not. I like farmer’s coffee. It’s not Sumatran. It’s not Kona. It’s Folgers or Maxwell House with several extra scoops and it’s likely been left on the warmer most of the afternoon. It’s the kind of coffee farmers warm their hands over after a long cold day in the field, or at a hockey game, or at an auction house, or while sampling ginger snaps at a neighbor’s kitchen table.

I don’t get the appeal of the chain coffee houses.  When I have to speak another language to order a large coffee, I’d rather .. not.  

Give me a house blend, garden variety coffee, preferably poured from a neighbor’s coffee pot and I’m a happy girl. A satisfied cat.  

Coffee anyone?

  1. Awesome – atta go girlio!!! Looking forward to more words of wisdom and sage advice…. Coolio!

  2. You can’t beat a good independent coffee shop, especially when the staff get to know you and tease you day by day.
    Even so Starbucks has brought a breath of fresh air & a beautiful aroma to many a city in the UK.
    Instant Coffee? Maxwell House did you? I just can’t it’s not like proper coffee.

    • Yes we have a good local coffee house that I also frequent; they sell a hearty, robust daily coffee that’s just right and it’s served with a sense of community that I love. For me, Starbucks is a little too bitter but I sure like their Chai Tea latte. Yum! MH isn’t the best, it’s just what’s familiar to me and something I would have had at a neighbor’s home while standing in their farmyard. Thanks for visiting :). MJ
