>Currently obsessing over: Coffee

Obsessing over my new Starbucks Insulated Cold Cup. I heard that they were coming back so when I got my iced coffee (only $1.95 for a limited time folks!) this morning and saw these babies displayed gloriously upon me entering, I grabbed one up without a second thought. It may look like a regular plastic cup. But the insulated Cold Cup is made of double walled hard plastic, not the flimsy disposable kind. It has a screw on lid and a hard plastic straw as well. I love it. I’m saving money with the Cup Discount and the environment all at the same time! Can’t beat that.
Speaking of coffee…I also have been obsessing over finding a coffee maker for at home. My addiction for coffee has gone rampant and I crave it almost every morning now. And seeing how I am usually rushing out the door…I usually don’t have time to stop by and get some Starbucks. So I tried to save a buck and a trip by consuming the coffee provided by my office. Until one of my coworkers gasped at me and said, “you drink that stuff?! I heard it taste like Motor Oil?” And now ever since she said that, all I can taste when I drink it is motor oil. Humph. So I figured its time to invest in a coffee pot. I have a few things I’m looking for:

1. I would like it to have a programmable setting so that it brews automatically for me in the morning. I’m def not a morning person (hence the coffee) so the boyfriend usually gets everything going for us in the morning. I don’t want to add to his list by making him make my coffee. This way I can set it the night before and the worst he has to do is put it in my cup for me 🙂

2. I would prefer it to be red because I have a whole red and aqua color motif going on in my kitchen. Problem is I haven’t found any decent red ones. Most of them have had bad reviews. I guess more form over function.

3. I would like it to have its own metal filter. I heard it taste better than using the paper ones.

I also have been hearing a lot lately that Dunkin Donuts Coffee Beans taste better than Starbucks. Can anyone vouch for that? Or does anyone have a good coffee maker at a decent price. I don’t want to spend more than $40 for one.

  1. >If you buy a french press, all you need is super hot water(you can get that out of the coffee maker at work) and ground up coffee beans. Some folks think using a french press is too much work (its really not), but you really get fresh coffee, on the go, that allows you to taste the coffee in its purest form!

  2. >Yea I remember learning how to use French presses when I worked @ Starbucks. Thats some hardcore coffee drinking there. I’m afraid that its going to be too strong with the press?

  3. >Hmm, well it will be strong. But just get a light coffee bean, nothing too dark and maybe add a little extra cream or sugar and I think it will be quite tasty!
