I don't know about ya'll, but I look forward to my morning coffee time so much. That has quickly become my most favorite time of day on the mornings that I am able to work from home. It is just the best. I love sitting on the couch, drinking coffee, and catching up on my favorite blogs & Pinterest.
I have to admit though, until recently, I have been a plain old Folger's girl. I typically buy the Classic Roast that is already ground. Now, although I really do like this coffee, I didn't realize how much I was missing out on freshly ground whole bean coffee. Especially local, small batch coffees. Two brands in the Dallas area that I have grown to love are Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters & Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters. Both buy fair trade sourced beans and roast them to perfection.
Right now, we are drinking Noble Coyote's rise n' grind blend, and we love it.
Since we didn't have a coffee maker that grinds the beans for you, I had to purchase a coffee grinder. I ended up going with the Krups brand and love it. It is a great buy for the price too!
It is very easy to use, and ground them in about 5 seconds.
I like to store our coffee in this great vintage Community Coffee tin I got from my grandmother.
I even made a little coffee station last weekend to house all of our coffee necessities. This has turned into one of may favorite parts of our kitchen! Yes, that is a Fall candle you see. Could not stop myself!
And who can resist drinking out of a cute RoRo's mug?!? Not me!
Yum...the perfect combo!
Just for fun, I put together a few cute coffee accessories!
