It’s Time To Make The Coffee

I’m just going to get straight to the point here.  I bought a coffee maker today and I’m pretty excited.  Now, as you all know, I’m convinced I’m not an adult yet and based on my last few posts I’m sure I’ve convinced you all as well.  Nonetheless, I bought this coffee maker, which I believe to be a sign that I’m headed in the right direction.

Coffee in the morning = A staple of adulthood.  Drinking coffee in the morning is on the same level as watching the weather channel when the weather is fine.  It just says to the world, “Sup, I’m an adult yo.”  Maybe not in those exact words, but you know what I’m saying.

Here’s the best part.  Actually there are two best parts.

Here’s the best part part 1.  Not only do I get to feel like an adult by making/drinking coffee in the morning everyday, but I’ll also get to look like an adult because I’ll have my stainless steel coffee mug letting everyone around me know I’m an adult.  Yeah, you look at the mug and it says, “Sup, this guy sipping from me is an adult yo.” Maybe not in those exact words, but you know what I’m saying.

And here’s the best part part 2. Last week I wrote about not being an adult because I wasn’t a morning person.  Well I feel like this is going to help turn that around.  I think having coffee to drink in the morning will make me want to get out of bed earlier and be a real human person.  Because we all know, the best part of waking up, is Folger’s in your cup! (Actually, I’ll probably by Dunkin Donuts brand coffee, but you get the picture.)

Now to be honest, I have absolutely no clue if this is going to change anything at all.  For all I know, I may never use this thing and it could be a complete waste of money. Luckily, I bought it from Barnes and Noble where I had a $50 gift card so it’s a win win! I should have it by the end of the week, and will be enjoying from

So starting next week, I will be drinking some delicious coffee made every morning by this one cup master of the dark roast. Can’t wait to tell you all about it.

P.S. I know what you’re all thinking.  The step forward taken towards adulthood by buying a coffee maker is negated by the fact that I bought this coffee maker from Barnes & Noble. Just be quiet.

P.P.S. If you have any suggestions on the type of coffee and/or creamers I should buy I’m all ears. I love to mix things up a little.

    dont use creamers – the fact they never go bad is a gross sign. i recommend using cream instead, try using fat free or low fat. remember coffee stains teeth so also wash it down with water! but coffee is good you will be about 1050% more productive…

    • I mean, I’m already super productive but I’m kind of excited about this. And creamers never go bad? is that a true statement?

  2. Coffee is the workplace equivalent of a performance enhancing drug in sports. Drink it black for an added productivity boost (I have absolutely no evidence to back that claim)

    • Drinking it black is pretty badass. I can do it every once in a while but I need a little sugar sometimes. I have to be honest, I’m a big fan of telling people facts/stats without actually knowing anything about it so I like your game.

      • 62% of all statistics are actually made-up.

      • I heard its more like 81%

  3. And I would like to rebuff Julia’s comment. It’s not “cream” if it is fat free or low fat, it’s just something else gross that will never go bad. USE HALF & HALF (this is not a suggestion, more like an order) and sugar. Unless you really hate coffee like I do but still need the caffeine, then you can additionally use refrigerated (it does go bad = not gross) liquid flavored creamer like International Coffee brand creamer (I use hazelnut) but the flavor options are almost limitless.

  4. You need a Keurig! 🙂 I need one also. Makes the best cup of hot chocolate ever.

    • I think you’re right but its hard to beat a $20 coffee maker that makes great coffee.

      • Agreed. If it’s cheap and it works, great! 🙂 How long have you been blogging for if you don’t mind me asking? I only see two pages worth of blogs but I feel as though by reading your work that you should have a whole portfolio of blogs. Was wondering if you had taken the time to read any of my work? I am a beginner blogger but have completely fell in love with it! 🙂 Love reading your blog by the way. I follow.

      • Hey so I’ve been doing this blog consistently only for a few months. I had another blog on Blogspot that I did for about 2.5 years so I have been at this longer than this blog lets on. I would love to read your blog but according to the link attached to your profile, it doesn’t exist. Whats up with that?

        April 10, 2012 at 9:11 am

      • Hm. Try ? 🙂 Hopefully that works! But yeah, I love reading your posts. You have this down to earth style but at the same time, manage to come off very mature and professional. Don’t be scared of my link! Haha. I’m not really mental, just a figure of speech in today’s society. Hah.

        April 12, 2012 at 9:01 am

      • Haha. Yes, why?

        April 12, 2012 at 4:32 pm

        April 14, 2012 at 4:27 pm

      • Psh…I’ve seen a lot of unprofessional and immature people in my life time. You don’t even come close to being either of those. You have my vote for professional and mature. Haha.

        April 14, 2012 at 9:45 pm

      • yay!

        April 15, 2012 at 11:49 pm
