I come from a family of coffee drinkers. My Lolo (grandpa) literally drinks coffee all day, throughout the day. He will drink lukewarm coffee, day-old coffee, two-day-old coffee, and especially free (or senior citizen discount) coffee. My mom likes it with hazelnut or french vanilla creamer, milky and creamy and slightly sweet. My dad grinds his coffee beans the night before, so as not to wake the rest of the family since he wakes up before the sun rises. He brews his really strong, and drinks it black before his morning walks. My husband of course is also a coffee drinker, and similar to me doesn’t like to speak to anyone until he’s had a cup or two. He also gets up between 4-5 AM everyday, so maybe that’s a big reason why…
The morning ritual of grinding coffee beans, measuring and spooning it into the filter, smelling the earthy aroma and hearing the drip drip drip is something I have grown up with and continue to implement in my own home. I’ve often made the mistake of arriving to work without having any coffee at all, and realize how out of sync I feel with the start of my day. It’s comforting and peaceful and calming to have a morning ritual of making coffee to me, and that’s part of the reason why I’m SO very excited about today’s post!
I made my first video featuring one of my favorite things ever: morning coffee. Please be kind as I know it’s a little rough around the edges, but I had so much fun making it and am really hoping to make more in the future. I shot the entire thing on my cheap tripod, and edited it in the Windows free movie editor, but I’m pretty excited at having tried a new and creative form of documenting!!!
Hope you enjoy and (hopefully) more to come soon!! : )
