Every morning I wake up and home brew my coffee from Espresso Land with some store bought brand and while I am sipping it I dream of making a fresh pot of coffee using gourmet coffee beans because then I would have a strong coffee fueling me for my long day of chasing children.
I currently use a regular old coffee maker and it works wonderful for me but at times I wonder what it would be like to own a Rancilio Silvia espresso machine, would it create super strong, powerful brain boosting morning cocktail for me? Of course I mean a non-alcoholic cocktail, the one that fuels a mom of three who juggles so much. I hear espresso is the way to go for the most energy!
I truly do love my morning coffee and after researching online for ways to purchase coffee and save money I have come across Roaste.com which serves up a wide variety of not only coffee beans but coffee machines for every coffee lover out there. Purchasing coffee beans may prove to be less costly than purchasing already ground coffee in the long run, depending upon how much you consume on a daily basis. I personally have 2 travel mug sized coffee’s through out the day; one first thing in the morning when the kids wake and another when the kids are home from school.
Coffee has proven to be my energy boost and although it may not be good to consume as much as I do, it helps me move forward. I have wondered if brands like Gaggia espresso would be best suited for me as a high energy boost mid day instead of having two travel size cups through out the day of my other brand coffee.
Question for thought/discussion: Do you grind coffee beans or purchase already ground coffee?
