Coffee, anyone?

Roasted coffee beans, the world's primary sour...

It’s funny, my mom drank coffee every day, black.  Several cups.  I tried it a few times but just didn’t care for it.  So, for several years, I just assumed I didn’t like coffee.  Then a customer brought me a flavored coffee from Starbucks…oh my…how could I not have known how delicious this was?  Of course, it wasn’t calorie free like the black coffee my mom drank.  But it sure did taste worlds better.  Being the frugal gal I am, I wasn’t going to pay for coffee from Starbucks every day. Then I saw the little tins of Maxwell House International blends…when I tasted those, I knew I could have coffee-house coffee without the coffee-house price.  Yum!!  One cup most mornings.

I didn’t have a coffee maker, so I didn’t try any of the ground coffees on the market, just the instant.  But this week, someone gave me a brand new coffee maker that they didn’t need (yes, I could have bought a coffee maker myself, I just never got around to it.  I mean, how do you decide which one to buy?).  Oh my, I’m afraid this may be the beginning of a new addiction.  Today I stopped at Wal Mart after work and decided to look at all of the coffee and try to find something that I thought I just might like.  Wow!! Who knew there were so many options?  Then I saw one that caught my eye…

How could this not be good?  Do you see those words?  Chocolate truffle…oh my word.  I haven’t actually tried it yet.  I hate to admit this, but I’m not really sure how to use a coffee maker so I’m going to have to read the instructions (what’s up with that, right?) and maybe experiment a little.  But with a name like chocolate truffle, how can I go wrong?  So who has suggestions about what kind I should try next?  I’m excited about coffee…is that wrong?
