five for friday - 5 coffee essentials

November 22, 2013

Happy Friday!
5 coffee essentials -

Sticking with the theme this week, I decided I would do a 5 for Friday about my coffee routine.

  1. Start off with good organic coffee
  2. Make sure you have a good coffee maker. Ours grinds the beans right before brewing!
  3. The perfect coffee mug
  4. I take my coffee with half and half or cream - no sweetener
  5. Make it more nutritious by adding some coconut oil. Buy it here.

  1. Hi Suzy,
    I like to add variety and flavor by adding just one drop of cinnamon, peppermint or frankincense essential oil. It uplifts and flavor and helps create good body pH.
    Thanks for posting! I love Fridays too!

    1. Great idea. I love peppermint. I'll have to try that.

  2. Oh love it! I am loving my coffee these day, just finished a glass :)

  3. Love the ideas - but oil in my coffee! Aaah! Maybe when you have cream with it that would make sense. I love Arabica organic coffee (Organo with the mushroom) and the perfect coffee mug is a must! I'm new so, nice to meet you!!

    1. I know it seems weird at first, but trust me it is good. I have converted many a coffee drinker to adding oil. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Sounds like you're pretty serious about your coffee!! Neither my husband nor I drink it--but we had to get a coffee maker for guests who stay at our house. We're so clueless about even the types of coffee to buy! I just let my parents pick out coffee for me to store here.
