Coffee with my Cream

Coffee Mug Color
My favorite coffee mug.  

There were many themes for my wedding, but one of them was a no-brainer for my wife and I.  Coffee.  Our wedding favors were chocolate covered coffee beans with the message “She was the cream to his coffee”.

Since my wife and I both work in education, coffee is required part of the day.

Maybe it’s a part of yours?  Let’s find out.  Have you ever driven all the way to your school and sit at your desk, then get a sinking pit in your stomach as you realize that your freshly brewed cup of coffee was left in a travel mug on the kitchen counter?

Been there. Sad times.

Coffee is that extra kick in the morning.  My teachers know when I haven’t had my coffee in the morning.  My normal “Good morning” is a moan or grunt.  I’m physically at school at 8am, but my brain arrives at 9:30am.

Come to find out, I’m not the only one that needs this caffeine jolt in the morning.  I’ve spoken with many teachers and many of them have their own vices:

  • Coca-cola
  • Black Tea
  • Diet Coke (I’ve seen this one a lot!)
  • Green Tea
  • Water (probably the best for you)

This doesn’t surprise me because educators need that oomph in their step.  I need coffee just to function.  The kiddos notice.

But coffee gets expensive and I don’t have a ton of money to fund my habit.  Especially creamer.  I can’t drink coffee straight.  I like my coffee a light brown and extra sweet.

My wife says I like to add a little coffee to my cream.

So, I looked online and found this…

Homemade Coffee Creamer from Here

Vanilla Creamer
Sweetened Condensed Milk, 14 oz can
Almond Milk with Vanilla Flavoring 14 oz.
1 Tablespoon of vanilla flavoring

1-2 tablespoons Hazelnut extract (instead of vanilla)

Irish Creme

I’m gonna try it out.  And for all my other educator coffee aficionados, let me know what you think too.  Love my coffee!
