I started drinking coffee in my early 20’s after I was married. My husband was a regular coffee drinker and one day I decided to grab a cup to see what all the fuss was about. It was love at first sip. Since then I’ve been drinking coffee every day and its appeal still hasn’t waned. In fact, it’s my favourite beverage and one that I couldn’t imagine parting with for even one day! Though I’m older now and some things have changed over the years, like what I put in my coffee and how I make it, that true love of a steaming mug in my hands still gets to me every single time.
Folgers Gourmet Selections have become an integral part of my morning routine. Without fail every day upon waking up, I’ll press the button on my Keurig Brewing System and pop a Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup in the machine. I’m usually not even completely awake when this happens and do it on auto-pilot. However, by the time it’s ready two minutes later, I’m usually wide awake and ready to start my day.
Earlier this month I shared my review of Folgers Gourmet Selections new Mocha Swirl K-Cups. If you haven’t tried them yet, you need to! They are simply divine! Today I wanted to give you an update on how Folgers Gourmet Selections are continuing to enrich my mornings (well, actually my entire day since I drink coffee all day long!).
How Folgers Gourmet Selections Enrich My Mornings
1. Folgers Gourmet Selections help make mornings my favourite time of the day. I would definitely consider myself a morning person. I love to set my alarm really early and get up before the sun comes up and the house is quiet. I can take my time getting ready for the day and can have a moment to just sit and enjoy a freshly, brewed cup of Folgers coffee. It’s living in the moment with that first sip and just taking in the aroma, taste and feel of a warm cup in my hand. It’s familiar and something I look forward to each and every day.
2. Folgers Gourmet Selections offers me a wide selection of flavours to choose from, depending on my mood. Variety is good and Folgers Gourmet Selections has an awesome range of coffee to choose from depending what I’m in the mood for. Some days I prefer a stronger coffee like Black Silk while other days, my sweet tooth will take over and I’ll reach for either a Mocha Swirl, Caramel Drizzle or Vanilla Biscotti. I usually pick up a few boxes of different flavours when I’m out shopping so that I’ll always have a variety on hand to choose from. I absolutely do not like to run out of K-Cups!
3. It couldn’t be any easier to make myself a cup of Folgers Gourmet Selections coffee. Each cup is made in my Keurig Brewing System and that’s the only way I prepare my coffee. It takes only 2 minutes to make a cup of coffee from start to finish. Plus, there’s no wasted coffee thanks to single-serve K-Cups, no beans to grind or mess to clean up. I used to hate having to make a pot of coffee when there was no one in the house but me to drink it.
4. Drinking my cup of Folgers Gourmet Selections coffee makes me feel ready to tackle the day. After my morning cup, I always feel so much more energized, alert and motivated to start crossing items off my to-do list. Whatever I’ve got planned for the day, coffee is always an important part to help get me there. Do you ever notice you seem to get more done while you’re drinking coffee? I know both John, my spouse, and I find this to be the case.
I remember the Folgers commercial with the catchy jingle that said, “The best part of wakin’ up is Folgers in your cup” and they were absolutely right! Coffee + mornings are a happy combination in my books and one that I can’t imagine ever stopping. My morning tradition is simple, but brings me great joy. I look forward to that “me time” ritual each and every day.
