I start every day with a large cup of coffee. I don’t feel awake at all unless I’ve had it.
My coffee of choice currently is a budget indulgence but it doesn’t feel like a sacrifice. I drink McDonald’s McCafe Breakfast Blend. Good stuff. I use my pour-over Bodum system, which I’ve talked about before. I do choose to use a paper filter in addition to the system filter because I found the coffee too thick otherwise.
As I said, good stuff. I won’t be willingly without it.
