    Experimental:

    Grain-coffee wit sugar and cinnamon (mixed 50%/50%).

    Nice, but seems, it needs a little more sugar.

    I just bought some Maxwell House smooth bold and mixed it with my Cafe Bustelo. That makes a hearty shot of espresso. Of course I added steamed milk and cream and all kinds of chocolate. I always do.

    Yes, it is. I also like Gevalia house blend. It's ground fine enough to work in the espresso pump.

    Hard to tell... here is mostly expressos. I think it is made by Delta Caf├ęs for another brand they own.

    Two cups of Cafe Bustelo espresso followed a little while later by a cup of complete awfulness from the Texaco.

    My double shot in the morning is Bustelo. My coffee the rest of the day today was <gasp> instant decaf. A girl's gotta do....

    Okay, for the first time I will announce to the outside world that I bought myself a Nespresso coffee maker for Christmas. I have devolved from a committed fresh grind, French press coffee addict and have crossed over to the dark (or lite) side. Well at the risk of public humiliation I announce that the Nespresso machine makes a decent cuppa. AND it is easy and so much less messy than my grind and press method. The problem with the Nespresso is that it is too easy and I need temper my coffee desires and limit it to two cups.

    Stash Spice Dragon Red Chai tea with organic turbinado sugar.

    I really dig this tea. It is spicy (clove, ginger, cinnamon), and makes my mouth tingly - in a good way.

    Now, I enjoy a refreshing, warming sage-tea. No soar-throat, but I like to use up the package.

    I get these often as well. They are really good, and a good value.

    I'm also partial to Umbria coffee these days. Grind it fresh and prepare it in a french press, and that's amazing stuff!
