Here's something I don't understand.




Breakfast blend coffee.

I guess it's supposed to be a mellower blend of coffee. Something that won't offend our delicate palates early in the morning. A lighter, less acidic beverage for the early morning tastebuds.

Fuck that shit.

The only time I want a mellower cup of coffee is about ten minutes before bedtime. In the morning I want the hi-octane shit. Something to get my synapses firing, if ya know what I mean. What the hell is a "breakfast blend" good for anyway? Lulling you back to sleep?

That's just a half-ass cup o' joe, in my opinion.

Here's a quote:

"A good cup of coffee should put a spring in your step and your ass in the john."

Yeah it's buzz or nothing in the morning. I'm not happy until my back teeth start grinding...

B.E. Earl said...

Holly - Shrubs or Scrubs?

RW - That's a good indicator. With coffee, it's go strong or go home!

I was just tweeting to LeSombre that I drink Dark Magic GMCR and anything else is too weak for me. Fuck that breakfast blend shit, even at bedtime.

Slyde said...

maybe you should just drink the Breakfast Blend before you go to bed, then....

B.E. Earl said...

Poppy - I've had the Dark Magic and that's good stuff! Right now I'm drinking their Extra Bold Sumatran Reserve. Not bad. A little french vanilla cream for sweetener (just a little bit) and some half and half. Ahhhhhh.

Slyde - It's the only time of the day it's good for.

I don't drink coffee, but seriously- what would be the point?

B.E. Earl said...

Sybil - You don't drink coffee? My God, woman! How do you...do things? ;)

Heff said...

I like my coffee like I like my men. Black and powerful.

B.E. Earl said...

Heff - There it is! Comment thread win for Heff. :)

Damn right - a good caffeine slap to the brain first thing in the morning - sets you up nicely :D

I'll be the scapegoat.

I drink breakfast blend because it doesn't make my ulcer feel like it has been dowsed with gasoline and lit with a match. It also doesn't make me wish I could barf after my first cup. Regular coffee on my stomach, first thing is the morning, is not a happy way to start the day.

So bite me.

Kevin Spencer said...

Ha, totally agreed. I want something that's going to hit me in the face with a hammer not sing me lullabies. That's kind of the point of morning coffee no?

Pearl said...

Exactly. I am looking for a jolt to the system first thing in the morning! No need to ease me into it!

Harumph!

B.E. Earl said...

Wabbit - A slap to the brain. I like that.

Steph - biting away! ;) I was just mad that I grabbed the wrong coffee at the store is all.

Kevin - the point, yes!

Pearl - Harumph backatcha! ;)
