My day starts off after I’ve had my morning coffee. A typical morning for me would be to wake up and stretch. I start feeling around in my bed for my glasses because they land up where ever they fall off as I head to la la land. Reason being, I read myself to sleep every night. I then put on my glasses and head to the bathroom to brush my teeth. I stop back by my bedroom and grab my night robe. I shuffle to the kitchen while trying to put on my slippers which I never actually ever manage to put on properly because the closer I get to the kitchen, I know what awaits me. COFFEE. If I am using coffee beans, I grind my coffee as quickly as I can. Otherwise, I open my coffee canister and inhale. Deeply. It’s not until this point that I start to feel like I’m truly alive and ready to face another day. Coffee is my lifeline. I’d even got so far as to say that coffee is my morning medicine. I drink it from morning to night and I enjoy each and every cup as much as I do my first cup of the day.
I’m sure some of you if not all of you can relate to my coffee addiction. Some of you may not know what the hype is all about and I’m guessing it’s because of one or two things. Either you have some nasty tasting water (I’ve been there), or your coffee pot does not heat up the water the way coffee is meant to be brewed (been there too). In the case of either of these or both of these, there is a solution. Buying water to make your coffee with solves the first problem. Investing in a good coffee pot like the Capresso MG900 Coffee Machine solves the second problem. My Capresso coffee machine features a stainless steel heating system, ensuring coffee brews at the perfect temperature each and every time. I get the perfect cup of coffee in 7 minutes (or sooner if I just can’t wait for it to finish, lol) with the MG900 10-Cup Rapid Brew Coffee Maker. This being because “the amount of time the water is in contact with the coffee grounds directly relates to the final taste of the brew.” There is a science to brewing the best drip coffee.
After I have my first cup of coffee, I enjoy flavored coffees. Sometimes I use flavored coffee creamers, sometimes I use flavored syrups. But I think my entire family agrees that cinnamon coffee is our favorite flavor. And it’s so easy to make, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been making it all along. If you’re a true cinnamon lover like I am, then you’ll want to use both methods. If you prefer just a flirt of flavor, one or the other will do. Before you make your cinnamon coffee, make sure you have your new coffee maker ready to brew your perfect cup of coffee.
To get your Capresso MG900 Coffee Machine ready, you’ll want to unpack it of course and read the instructions. After doing that, wash all of the loose parts with warm water. You’ll need to clean the internal parts of the machine by making two pots of water. Just run the water without the coffee twice.
After doing that, make sure to add the charcoal filter. What I love about this particular machine in regards to the filter is that the machine will tell me when I need to change my filter. Isn’t that neat?
Next, you’ll want to decide how many cups of coffee you want to make and then remove the removable water tank. Fill with water to the desired level and slide it back into place on the back of the machine. For this post, I’m selecting 8 cups.
Add your coffee to your reusable gold cone shaped filter. Is it just me or does coffee seem to taste better with reusable filter vs. paper filters?
Then turn the machine on. And wait. Patiently. Add either a cinnamon stick or 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and whatever else you usually add to your coffee, in your coffee cup. It won’t be long now before you’ll be able to enjoy the perfect cup of cinnamon coffee. Cinnamon is good for us in case you didn’t already know that.
Drink, breathe, dance, repeat. Now, time to live. Because all coffee drinkers know that life begins after coffee.
