  1. Very informative. I had no idea there were so many variations of coffee. I don’t drink coffee, but if I did, I’m pretty sure I couldn’t get away with starting my work day off with the Irish Coffee 🙂

    • I have one cup, maybe two in the morning and that is usually it for me…until I find myself driving past this particular local coffee shop, then I treat myself to an afternoon cup of joe…

  2. uuh, I want to drink one NOW!
    thank you for joining the j! photo challenge!

  6. Lots to know about Java!

  7. I love a decent coffee and Java is the best. Might have to fire up the Krupp coffee maker a bit later 😉

    • It is a delightfully enjoyable escape..a hot cup of Miel…a little jazz playing in the background…maybe even a little rain on the window…I feel relaxed already! I hope your escape is as enjoyable as the one I just visualized.

  8. Anything with coffee, I’m into it. Make it java, I’ll jump right in. Can’t go a day without coffee. I’m going to try this exciting new java surprise ” Cafe Con Miel.”. have a blessed day.

  9. All these wonderful choices. 🙂
