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

  2. Espresso machines are still very popular despite being around for a long time now. Ground coffee is used in these machines, which means that you can brew an espresso just the way you like it, and to coffee shop standard, using your favourite coffee. gaggia anima reviews

  3. Meanwhile, not sure about you, but I am getting extremely confused between the different ways to drink coffee. Portland LGBTQ+


I would love to hear from you!
