I used to be totally content drinking coffee made with coffee grounds from a can. It satisfied my morning coffee craving just fine, but it wasnâ€™t extraordinary and didnâ€™t catapult me into my day or anything.
It was on a bright sunny morning several years ago that I lost my coffee innocence. I met some coffee grounds from a bag.
It was unlike any coffee Iâ€™d ever tasted.
My family and I were staying at my aunt and uncleâ€™s house and my aunt introduced me to gourmet coffee from a bag. I had one harmless cup of coffee after another but from that first cup on, drinking coffee wasâ€¦well, my morning coffee drinking was never the same after that.
The flavor exhilarated my taste buds. For days afterwards, I couldnâ€™t stop thinking about the aromatic, rich, and bold flavor of that great tasting coffee. I had no idea that my mornings would be changed forever from coffee that came out of a bag.
It was drinking those cups of coffee at my auntâ€™s that I realized there were plenty of other coffee grounds in the store and ended my relationship with coffee-in-a-can. I eventually eloped with Columbian Supremo roast gourmet coffees that IÂ put it in my own can,Â and Iâ€™ve been happily drinking coffee ever since.
A few times Iâ€™ve had run-ins with coffee-in-a-can brands and Iâ€™ll admit, gourmet coffee has spoiled me but I have found sources for getting my gourmet coffee fix at a cheaper cost.
I donâ€™t look forward to having my coffee first thing in the morning the same way I used to. Now I look forward to my morning coffee with great impatience.
