From the Java Lady

If you’ve been reading  my blog very long, you know that I am not a coffee drinker. I do like cappuccinos, but not coffee. My husband, on the other hand, is a coffee addict. He loves it! In fact, I think he bleeds coffee when he gets a cut. 🙂 On his 29th birthday, I purchased him a BUNN coffee maker. He was thrilled! He has tried to convert me from a cappuccino only girl to a java lady many times over our almost 13 years of marriage. I’ve tried to like coffee, I really have. I’ve tried it black as well as with cream and sugar, but…no go. The bitter taste was still far too over powering. 
Recently while shopping, I noticed that Coffee Mate has a line of flavored creamers. I decided to purchase the French Vanilla one to give it a try, since I like French Vanilla cappuccinos. I bought the little travel sized packets of the creamer, so that if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t be wasting so much. Well…I loved it!! I am now a convert! I still enjoy a cappuccino now and then, but I am officially a java lady. :]
And yes, my husband’s eyes lit up when I told him the good news.

  1. Welcome to the DARK side! no pun intended! 😉 I am a coffee-holic too, however, I do not like Bunn coffeemakers, they may produce a fast pot of coffee, but 'tis a substandard one in taste. I prefer the Cuisinart Grind N Brew…or any good maker with an insulated carafe. Let the better coffee debate begin! ha!


  2. Welcome to the club lady! I wasn't a coffee drinker either until we came to Europe, EVERYONE drinks coffee here and after a while I got tired of saying “no thank you” and started drinking! HA!!
    BTW, no flavored creamers here. :0(


  3. Oh yes! Coffee! And, there is NONE better than European coffee! I had espressos in Hungary and oh, my…..nothing like it! Drank as many as I could before I had to leave! Welcome to the Coffee Club, Valerie! Glad to have you join! =-)
