Morning Coffee

I love my morning coffee.  Today we are going away for a couple days for our wedding anniversary.  We always go to the same B&B every year, same cottage every year.  And, every year, I think they serve the most delicious coffee  with breakfast.

A few times, I have ended up bringing some home but I am always disappointed because it doesn’t seem to taste the same.  It is ok, but I wouldn’t seek it out.  I realize that when I am there, I am probably feeling happier and more relaxed than on a hectic work day – is that making the coffee taste better?  I wouldn’t say that coffee on a day off tastes better than coffee on a work day , so it doesn’t feel as if it is work/stress related.  Could it be the physical location?  Does that affect how the coffee tastes?  How about your enjoyment of the particular coffee?  I started out thinking about countryside vs suburbia or with a crowd vs solo, but maybe even the living room vs the kitchen…?  What do you think – Does where you enjoy a cup of coffee affect how you enjoy that coffee?

    For ten years I lived in Zeist Holland. So Dowe Egberts was of course the coffee there. Returning back to the states there were few, I mean very few shops that carried it. Fresh Market had it for a while then it disappeared.. So glad it’s now available here on your web site.. Sorry not to order Stroopwafels as I make my own here in Bedford Va. Have for years with my special iron purchased in the Netherlands years ago.. any takers.. they will be fresh..

    1. Homemade stroopwafels – Delicious! I have never seen the irons before – I am wondering if they only make one at a time! And, yes, Douwe Egberts is the coffee of Holland. We are glad you found us too!
