Interesting. I was a coffee wholesaler at one point in my life. One of my best friends owns a roastery and coffee shop in St. Paul, MN. I buy approximately 50 pounds per month from him. I have a link in my sidebar on my blogsite, jspado.blogspot.com, "The Round Circle", that links to my webpage where I sell coffee if anyone is interested. I already sell some to a few bloggers who are readers of my blog.

Are these coffeeisms? or just a chance to get some free advertising?

Sorry, I couldn't resist telling you that coffee is a big part of our lives.
Here where I live, many folks come to my house to have a cup of coffee. We have a brew bar and some of the best coffee anywhere. I still meet folks at the coffeeshop every morning, I did a spot on my blog about The Black Cat, our coffee hangout. My friends call my house the Hit or MIss Cafe. Soemtimes we're here and you can get a good cup of coffee, and sometimes we're not home and you lose out.

Happy drinking

BTW I drink mine as a double Americano, easy on the water. I add a dash of 1/2 & 1/2 How do you drink yours?

spadoman

Oh, I click on links if I want more information about an article. No regularity, rather whimsical instead.

Interesting post, I guess it is a good thing that I do not like or drink coffee...seems complicated. I get my caffeine kick from Diet Pepsi, well I guess it is not so much of a kick anymore but a headache blocker.

There are dogs in the that pic, all I see are firemen....must be wishful optical illusions.

janeti

It's to early to contribute to coffeeism, first haven't had and yet and second it's -20.5 fricken degrees outside and I when to let the dogs out and I thought I was stuck to the porch. I kept my tongue in my mouth.
Well I'm this far eggnog in coffee great. I thought I came up with this on my own and low and behold they sell creamer that's eggnog flavored and pumpkim spice. Yum!

janet

Posted by Janeti?? How did that happen?

Janet a.k.a Wonder Mom

That was very funny.
I am a coffee addict. (all say: Hi Janet) I could go without food but not coffee...I tired. It stinks.

I click on links when I think they are back stories to posts or pictured...I usually click on all links. They're there for a reason yes?

I am having a really fun time here, I just wanted to tell you.

BarnGoddess

I like leaded coffee......fresh and black.

when I visit my sister the health nut she tries to slip me unleaded coffee which makes me cranky with a headache....

Robin

Swampy...SWAMPY...!!! I'm feelin' the love sugah-bear! (And apparently, I'm feeling very Southern, too).

LOVEDLUVEDLURVED your coffeeisms...and the tribute to moi. I'm on my second cup right now, just in case you're wondering (and I'm sure you aren't), it's outta the mug I mentioned in one of my old Pensieve posts, the "Shhh, I'm reading" one.

My coffeeisms? Yours are friggin' hilarious, and I've made mental notes in the event you ever travel to TN and I have to brew a pot for ya. I've already mentioned some of mine in old posts, but for fun here:

- I HAVE to have half & half, not 2% or non-dairy creamer or any other milk derivative.

- I cannot drink coffee with dessert. My coffee IS dessert (because I always accidentally pack it with sugar).

- It tastes better out of my favorite mugs.

- Gourmet blends are fine (I'm curious about Spadoman's), but my favorite is Dunkin' Donuts.

I couldn't help but go back and read your (Hans) camping post...how did I miss that? Must've been one of those times I was occupied with "life" :/. Maybe I needed to read it more now, huh? Those dogs must've been eating green M&Ms or oysters or something.....geez!

Thanks friend...this has started my day with a smile :)...no, a BIG smile! :D

Pamela

I got a "kick" out of your coffee without even swallowing...
what a great post.

I click on links when I'm sure I need to have the update. Most of your stories I remember very well.

I rarely click on advertising links.

Pamela

PS.
I like just regular old coffee.
with (at home) Fat free half n half. It's really skimmed milk all dolled up to make it seem creamy and white. My coffee has to have that mellow color - or I don't want to drink it. I know I know , it still taste the same.
I like my mug that fits my hand so the first step in the ritual is putting my hands around it and feeling the warmth. Then I take a big deep breath before I put it to my lips. Close my eyes, swallow, and then I make a groaning sound... mmmmmmmmmm and pull up my shoulders.

(PS. means post swampy)

Brian

I don't drink coffee so this post is right over my head. Have a great week my friend.

claudia

I loved this!! Swampy, as usual, you are a great way to start the day...even before I've had my coffee....as for my coffeeism...
hmm....if the spoon stands up by itself in the cup, the coffee is just right...(I like my coffee strooong!)

Jenny

I have never made coffee in my entire life. Not even once.

I'm kind of proud and embarrassed about it at the same time.

claudia

Karmyn R

I never liked coffee - never drank the stuff. So - no coffeeisms from me. Blech - Blech- Blech.

I used to like the smell of coffee, but now days when my hubby brews it, I think it stinks up the house like dead skunk.

swampy

SPADOMAN: Feel free to advertise all you want. I guess that would be coffeeismvertising. Huh? I like my coffee with cream...not so much for the taste, but for the color. Sometimes, I add honey if I need to feel sweet that morning.

SKYDANCER069: The dogs aren't really there, just an illusion, or an allusion to an illusion, or maybe an allurism...who knows?

JANET: How did that happen? janeti ? You typed an 'i' after you typed 'j-a-n-e-t' is all I can figure out. Yup, it's cold here, too. Glad you're keeping your tongue from freezing. Working on the MeMe.

JANETaka:WonderMom: "Hi Janet" (we all said that in unison) Thank You for visiting AND commenting. I'm glad you are having fun at TheAsylum.

BARNGODDESS: Some mornings I slip half decaf beans in with the leaded ones, but can't seem to fool me.

ROBIN: Glad you're feelin' the lurv. I do remember those posts which are what motivated me to do this post. I had you in mind all the time, and then today just seemed the right time to publish it. I'll certainly call you the next time we're in TN. Keep on smilin'...

PAMELA: Happy to send a 'kick' your way. I'm with you on the 'color' thing. Just makes it look richer. I guess I could drink it without the cream, with my eyes closed.
P.S. Post Swampy...clever.

BRIAN: ...over your head... Thanks for the visit and comment, anyway. Smiles.

CLAUDIA: I like my spoon standing staight up, too. Don't like 'muddy-water-tastin' coffee. Thanks for the reminder. I'm working on the MeMe. Do I lose points because it's so late?

JENNY: Does that make you an oxymoron? Or and oxy? Or a moron? Or a CoffeeOxyMoron?

KARMYNR: Please don't mention skunk here, ok? Belch, Blech, Bleak.. Just don't inhale at this post.

Coffee is a drug. I abuse it. Then I have to drink wine to take me down.

Susan in va

Survey questions:
1. I occasionally click on links.

2. I don't really click on certain TYPES of links, it has more to do with the amount of TIME I have to go and read something else. There are some blogs that I read that I'm AFRAID to click on their links. I don't know where I might end up :O! Yours seem pretty safe, though.

Coffee:
Hot. Cream. No sugar.

Stephanie

FelineFrisky

I became a coffee addict while in a closed facili8ty in patient study for a heart drug. They didn't DO tea. I hooked onto the hard stuff real fast and drank lots of it, too. Love it with milk.

Flavors are good, but don't frink much coffee at hiome anymore. Even got a coffee maker, it is just a decoration lately.

D :)

claudia

I have a feeling you're probably going to get some extra points for something incredibly amusing...that's my guess!

MSUgal86

Coffee is my life. I paid tribute in my July 20 06 post. I think you will like it!

What are y'all talking about?! You just have to let the tap run long enough so that the water will be warm enough to melt the crystals! Swampy, you always have to complicate things!
I'm with Janeti though, I lovi a little egginogi in my coffeti.

Coffeeism Ceremony at the Hit or Miss Cafe, (Spadoman's house)

Stainless steel vessel is filled with pure spring water from a well at the shore of Lake Superior.
It is placed on the stove to achieve boil.
Two mugs are readied by warming them with hot tap water.
Two plastic cone filter holders are placed on top of the now warmed mugs.
A non-bleached paper filter is placed in each cone.
My spouse announces. "Ginding", as she flicks the swith for the burr grinder to crush the beans for these next two cups.
The ground coffee is measured and scooped into the paper filter.
The water, now right near boiling, is poured over the ground coffee, but only enough so to wet the ground beans.
When the coffee is saturated, the rest of the water is poured over and allowed to drip into the mug.
When mug is full, (leaving 3/4" for 1/2 & 1/2, the filters are taken off and set aside.
The 1/2 & 1/2 is added and the coffee mug handed to my spouse.
She kisses me and says thank you and with her free hand makes a gesture to carress me.
We drink our top quality freshly roasted coffee.

This scene replays itself everyday at our place. Simply the best cup o' Joe around.

Stephanie

Spadoman lives in paradise.

Mary (mert)

My coffee-isms?

Me without coffee:
Ripping off you arms and beating you with them...Me-2, you-0

Me with a gallon of coffee:
Slightly irritable, but now talking instead of grunting... You have the added bonus of keeping your arms. :O)

swampy

FELINEFRISKY: I have several of those decorations, but we use all of them. I'm not much on flavored coffee.

CLAUDIA: I hope to not disappoint you.

MSUGAL86: I have a heck of a time getting to your place and posting. But once there, I am diligent with BloggerBooger.

MIN: Didn't you know that my middle name was 'complicated?' Sometimes on trips, I use the hot water/crystals recipe. The eggnogi thingy in the coffeei is goodi.

SPADOMAN: I can almost smell the beans roasting and the coffee brewing from here.
Wow! Think I'll go make a Keoke Coffee NOW.
Your comments are longer than my posts. Want to do a guest appearance?

STEPAHNIE: Yes, sounds like he's in coffee paradise.

MARYMERT: Ok, Ok...you can have you coffee and drink it, too, just give me my arms back.
