I like my coffee…

It’s true.  I like my coffee, and I like it strong.  I’ve heard it said “With enough coffee I could rule the world.”  Well, that’s cute and snarky and all… and it’s probably true.  But I don’t want to rule the world… so I just wear this…



I picked up this handcrafted necklace from one of my new favorite jewelry makers…  and just had to share it!  And I’ve worn it every day since!  … ahem …

But it got me thinking, that I should share my secret weapon for when I need an extra dose of coffee.  This is my secret coffee weapon… mostly utilized when I’m in the office.


You see, we have a coffee service that brings us pre-measured packets of Starbucks coffee, a medium-bodied blend.  We place it in the coffee filter and hit a button that reads “full pot brew” … and it’s all pre-measured, pre-poured, etc.

That’s fine and dandy… for those who like a weak cuppa joe… just sayin’…

And so, I found myself searching out more…  more flavor, more caffeine, just more… 


Until I found this…

That’s right… instant coffee packets.  I know, I know… it sounds a bit unbelievable.  Just go with me here…

instant coffee packet + brewed coffee = awesomness!
instant coffee packet + brewed coffee = awesomeness!
instant coffee packet + brewed coffee = awesomness!
instant coffee packet + brewed coffee = awesomeness!


That’s right… you guessed it!  I add a single serving packet of the instant coffee (which comes packaged with a bit of creamer/sugar already) to my already prepared brewed cuppa joe.  And voila!


coffee makes me awesome!
coffee makes me awesome!


There it is… an awesome cuppa joe!!!

  1. and here I have always wondered why you only sleep 4 hours a night… and of the thousands of coffee quotes I have heard over the years I definitely think those are three of the best… too funny…
