A Day without Coffee

We can’t serve you!

I was stumbling and falling asleep… you can’t deny a working mother coffee on a Monday morning with a day packed with meeting. I could see the espresso machine, the ice blending machine was up in running. There was a room full of people with coffee, and as they denied me mine, there were finishing serving another customer. I felt it was a cruel joke to make me suffer.

Sadly, I stumbled back to my office destined for a morning filled with yawns. After a few calls inquiring, I discovered the problem. The cash register crashed, so they couldn't accept credit cards. I am a faithful coffee drinker, I always order the same thing. I always pay cash.

Was it really the best solution to send me packing?

Although I was late going back to work so I could re-go to the coffee house. I was inspired, I need to make my own coffee so I am no longer dependent on the whims of another to start my morning.

Does anyone have any good frozen blended coffee recipes? I've tried and failed a lot, which is why I keep going back. (Please leave some ideas... my mornings depend on it!)

  1. Put regular or flavored coffee in a mason jar with water (just a little more than you would brew regular hot coffee) and leave it overnight in the fridge. In the a.m. strain it through a strainer (I use a tea strainer) add some milk, cream, sugar, stevia....whatever, it makes great ice coffee without ANY bitterness. I love Mystic Monk Coconut flavored best. Love from Wyoming....Mary


I would love to hear from you!
