Good Morning & welcome!
I don't post often but I've been a member here for a while & I've prowled for many years!
I'm a coffee gal too but I don't make good coffee so I travel down to the corner & get a Tim Horton's coffee...and a 12 grain bagel with light cream cheese which I split with my hubby.

Welcome to the Kitchen Table! You will enjoy being a part of our family.

I have two cups of Maxwell House coffee each morning, with French Vanilla creamer.

Welcome to the KT! The first thing I drink every morning is a pint of juice made in my juicer: romaine or spinach, carrots, beets, celery, apple, lemon, and ginger.

Good morning Ruthie and welcome from south central Pennsylvania.

Coffee drinker here. Like my cofee with french vanilla cream, or mocha, yum.

Also love tea. Last winter I discovered celestial seasoning bengal spice tea. I use one tea bag of that and one tea bag of green tea or just regular tea in a huge cup. A little shake of splenda and a spot of milk, mmmmmmm.

Welcome, Ruthie!

I prefer tea (Twinings's loose leaf, made in a pot). My DH likes two cups of coffee in the morning, so I have a cup that's half milk.

Jude -- What does your MD say about five cups of coffee per day? (Had a friend who had to break her similar consumption of Pepsi-Cola.)

Good moring Ruthie and welcome to the kitchen table,,,but I have to tell you, we have a firm rule here. You can only be a "newbie" one time,,,after that you are one of our dear friends returning....

And now to answer your question, As I heard an old truck driver tell a waitress one morning..."Make my coffee like my women-HOT, BLACK & STRONG)

As I get older I have cut down on my coffee consumption considerably,,,I only drink about 15 to 18 cups a day now;

On the other hand, as a retired plumber, I know whats in the water, so I only drink water if it has been brought to a boil, then filtered through coffee grounds.

Having said all that nonesense, I will now turn it over to my friend Frog, who also wants to welcome you

Good morning to you, too, Ruthie. Happy to have you join the table. Pull up a chair and make yourself right at home.

After years of drinking coffee, it doesn't seem to agree with me anymore. I really get shaky after just one cup. So now I have juice or water. Orange or V-8 juice. Occasionally hot chocolate in the winter.

I have an espresso maker and start my day with a non-fat latte. I have another in the early afternoon.

Good morning Ruthie and Welcome!

We're enjoying a sunny cool Autumn morning in the Texas Panhandle. I'm finishing my last cup of coffee for the morning while having some toast with peanutbutter.

Good Morning Ruthie from Southern California~~I love coffee, but only drink it 1-2x's a week it gives in acid reflux. I like to brew it with about a teaspoon or two of cinnamon and I drink it black. The rest of the time I drink Chai or Green tea with a teaspoon of coconut sugar;)

For a big treat when I am out and about I will have a Soy Latte from Star Bucks yummy;)

Chisue, Pepsi and coffee is like apples and oranges...no comparison. My MD hasn't said a word about my coffee consumption. I just had a doctor's visit last week and she told me, healthwise for an 81 yr. old I was fantastic.

Welcome from PA..My coffee cup is a gigantic mug which probably is more like two normal cups. I like Dunking Donuts hazelnut with Bailey's creamer( the non alcoholic, although I like that too, just not in the morning)

A warm, sunny welcome to you, Ruthie, from the beautiful state of Georgia. Gotta have my coffee (and ciggies) all day long. Did you bring anything chocolate with you to share with us? Do you do any crafting? If so, what?

Hi and a good day to you from the Great State of Texas!
I lived in TN for several years, Memphis area.
I drink an iced coffee I make with crushed ice, and a chocolate syrup sugar free that is made for coffee. A lot like a starbucks mocha frappichino.

Good afternoon and welcome. I'm always late because I live on the west coast (Canada) and so feel like I'm always rushing to catch up. When I sign on after my morning run most people are ready for lunch.

My beverage of choice is coffee in the morning and probably another 4 cups during the day. I only pay attention to those studies that say coffee is good for you - which I believe is what the latest one says.

I hope you have fun here.

I used to drink Diet Coke all day long but about 5 years ago I switched to water. For the last year it has been sugar-free Snapple Peach Tea. And I am also from East Tn.

Good evening Ruthie from Tennessee and welcome to the KT. I like coffee but rarely drink it. In the winter I'll have hot chocolate and if I'm feeling ambitious, will make marshmallows to go in it. So much better than bought ones.
