Coffffffeeeeee!!!!! I love cofffeeeee! I even have a sign above my microwave that says so! My day does not start properly without it. I love opening the coffee canister and getting that first whiff, that inhale of the sweet aroma of coffee! It begins to wake up all of my senses. I try hard to get up and intake my coffee before any one else gets up. I just want those few precious moments of peace. Can anyone else relate.
However, the reality is most mornings as soon as Mom is up the whole house is up, child, dog and cat. They are all demanding their respective foods, as if I starve them. Can’t they understand that Mom just needs a little jolt of coffee to go from evil queen to lovely princess? It doesn’t take long, usually after just a few sips. Inevitably as I am making my coffee and scooping grounds into the filter someone, something bumps into me and causes me to spill or nearly spill the precious grounds that turn into nice juice. What’s a Mother to do??
Recently I had the opportunity to try Folgers® Perfect Measures™. Folgers® has managed to take coffee and tightly compress it into little discs so there is no spillage no matter how many bumps I have in the mornings. I pop the perfect amount into the coffee filter and create the perfect pot of coffee every time.
This transformed my mornings. Folgers® Perfect Measures™. helps make my mornings a little easier and I can move from evil queen to princess status more quickly which makes everyone’s day better and a little brighter. No matter how you like your coffee, the one thing I think we can all agree on is bring on the coffee as quickly as possible.
For us here in Cincinnati coffee drinking is a cultural way of life. We Cincinnatians love to begin our mornings with coffee and our day just doesn’t feel right without it. According to the survey done by Folgers®, coffee drinkers in Cincinnati 77% say they need coffee to start their day. On average we drink 2.8 cups of coffee a day and can go as high as 4.5 cups a day! LOL See we do love our coffee! It can be difficult for us to figure out how much coffee exactly to use when we make our own. Folgers® has helped solve this problem with perfect measures. Coffee issues in the morning can be a huge reasons we are late to work and not to mention it makes the day start off badly and can set the tone for the whole rest of the day.
Give Folgers® Perfect Measures™ a try and have a great start to your day and brew a perfect pot of coffee in the morning every time!!! Below is one of our favorite treats to have with our coffee. Turtle Brownies! Mmmmm don’t tell the kids. If you want to indulge in these after the kids go to bed, try the Folgers® Perfect Measures™ decaf. There isn’t a more perfect pairing than coffee and chocolate!
