Mere … Making coffee is my first task each morning. There is something wonderful about the smell of fresh brew to wake me up and start my day! I’m pretty basic when it comes to my morning cup o’ joe (although I’m known for splurging when it comes to Starbucks…hello vanilla latte!). For my morning coffee, I simply add nonfat milk and a tiny sprinkle of sugar. Most mornings, I enjoy my first cup of coffee in a mug at home and take my second in my Starbucks travel mug (highly recommend!) when I hit the road for work.
Kristi … I’m more of a tea gal, so my mornings almost start with a cup (or two). During the weekdays, I’m up and on the road long before the sun, so I grab one of my nifty car coffee tumblers (including this adorable find from Sonoma) and enjoy my warm beverage on my long commute to the office. I love trying different types of teas. Typically I drink the brew without any additives, but if I feel like sweetening it up just a bit, I’ll add a dash of agave syrup.
Bri … Like Kristi, I often drink various kinds of tea. A colleague sent me more than a dozen varieties as a gift, and it’s a pleasure trying different flavors to suit the season. If I do choose to make myself a cup of joe to enjoy at home or on the drive to work, the add-ins vary from week-to-week. Sometimes it’s an almond milk or soy milk latte, frothed up in a Nespresso machine; other days, like today, it’s a blend of raw cacao powder, hot cocoa mix and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
