I LOVE coffee

I just LOVE coffee!
I am sitting all snuggled up on the sofa. It is another grey and rainy/snowy winter day in Poland. (no surprises there, right?) I have on my GIANT red IKEA duvet slippers, and I am wrapped in a warm quilt. The starlights are on in my window, I can see snow on the surrounding rooftops. (The rooftops happen to be amazing since from my window you can see Zamek castle and several historical building with lovely turrets) I take a sip of that lovely latte in my cup and I just have to say it again...I love COFFEE!
I build coffee shops, I design coffee shops and I help manage coffee shops. I work with coffee all day long. Still I made my daughter bring me five lbs of Starbuck's French Roast Whole bean coffee from the USA when she came, for my own personal use! Ha ha.
I am kind of a coffee snob though. I would rather not drink coffee if it is bad. If you send me coffee beans that are not tasty I will not force myself to drink it. No, I will pour those beans into candle holders and light my coffee shops with them! :)
In Poland the taste for coffee is for lighter roasts. This is not the kind of coffee I prefer. A lighter roast does not have that DARK, smokey flavor that I love. I will drink a lighter roast but I love the intense aroma of the darker roasts. I cannot find this is Poland. (I keep thinking maybe we need to roast our own coffee beans.)
But for now I am satisfied that I can sit all warm and cozy on the sofa with my latte. My Ollie dog (Maltese TERROR who loves coffee!) is lying next to me. It is a perfect moment.
I love coffee!

I love coffee too, dark roast please. I have an inexpensive cappucino machine my hubby bought me from Kmart probably 10 years ago. I make my self a mocha every morning.
I tried this out Saturday: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/01/dulce-de-leche-coffee/
See what you think.
