Daily Cup of Love

Day 48 | Empty - Full Day 93 | Spring Break Morning Waiting at the Airport to go home from NYC-->ATL 18_365

If you know me, you know that I love coffee.  You know that I really don’t function without—at least—one cup of the black elixir in the morning.  You know that I love to grind my own beans.  You know that my favorite coffee mug is a TABASCO one I got on my honeymoon in 1995.  You know that I am particularly fond of iced coffee from that place with the green straw.   You know that I’m not loyal to one brand of coffee, but I am loyal to bold flavor and consistency.  And, you know I make one killer pot of coffee.

My love affair with coffee started later in life.  There was a time where I would fill up a big, blue cup of ice and Coca Cola (not diet, mind you), getting a big huge dose of caffeine and sugar together.   I only started drinking coffee when I would hit a coffee shop, late at night, with a girlfriend, where we’d write poetry in leather-bound journals, smoke cigarettes and laugh at the strange folk we’d encounter.

Those late night coffee trysts turned into morning coffee-computer time.  Morning coffee-computer time then evolved into coffee-gab time with a girlfriend, on her wooden deck,  in the afternoon or an iced coffee playdate at the park.   It didn’t take too long to turn me into a full-fledged coffee snob.   I’m talking an I-don’t-even-need-any-sugar-just-give-me-bold-flavor-and-I’m-in-heaven coffee snob!

When I went to Housewares in Chicago I met Bosch.  You know Bosch?  The third largest appliance manufacturer in the world.   Well, they introduced me to the Tassimo, a whole new way to prepare and enjoy coffee.    The Tassimo allows you to prepare one drink, of your choice, any time you want—no fuss, no muss!    This was bound to make my afternoon coffee consumption effortless.   Not only would it be easy to make a cuppa-cuppa, but I could now enjoy an espresso or cappuccino (without the full production of a fancy espresso machine, one which I do not have).

I love this baby! It’s easy to use, and it’s super easy to clean, the instructions aren’t hard to follow, it’s beautifully designed, and doesn’t take up too much counter space.

I love it so much that I’m going to make it super easy for you to have a Tassimo T65 of your very own.

(I’m sorry, but the giveaway is only open to those in the US.)

Just leave a comment and tell me how you take your coffee.  It’s that simple. I’ll announce the winner a week from today on May 11th!

Now, if you will, please excuse me while I go make myself a Latte Macchiato!

[Disclosure:  Bosch provided me with my Tassimo T65, but I was not paid to write this post or do the giveaway.  The opinions and sentiments reflected in this post are purely my own.]
