The Coffee Experiment Update

The coffee experiment is going remarkably well actually.  I have to admit: I am surprised. I'm surprised that either of us hasn't caved yet.  However, with the oncoming Fall weather Kevin is now leaving for work in the dark and increasing cold then will work outside in total crap weather for ten hours.  I am curious if he will want to have a coffee on the way home or in the middle of the day.  I have to say that as hard as he works, I can't blame him.

Anyway, here's me: off-topic again.

This is what we've settled upon.  Kevin prefers Starbucks VIA, vanilla flavor.

He takes two packages in a 16 oz cup with some sugar, french vanilla creamer, and a bit of chocolate.  For a guy that didn't drink coffee at all, this is remarkable.  He's made the transition easily while I still find myself a wee resentful.

I prefer to use our sparkling new coffee pot.  I finally chose Millstone Coffee, Chocolate Velvet flavor.

Like Kevin, I add a bit of sugar and french vanilla creamer.  I enjoy it quite a bit. My only complaint is that I'd like to have more later in the morning.  I need to find a Snoopy thermos or something to take extra to work.

Meanwhile, we still get coffee over the weekend because Missy would Lose. Her. Mind if we stopped doing that and it's not worth the drama.

Anyway, it's also nice that if you're having a horrible day that it is a treat again to buy a coffee as an attitude adjustment.  Not to mention the little extra change in our pockets to spend on other stuff, like towels at Target.
