When I was a teenager I can vividly remember being in a horrible mood for the majority of my morning if anyone dared talk to me before my morning shower. Fast forward 15 years and now you can swap that morning shower for a cup of hot coffee. I love the coffee mug above, “I’m sorry for what I said before I had my coffee”. I think every coffee lover can relate!! I grew up hearing the classic Folgers jingle, “The best part of wakin’ up is Folgers in your cup…”, and I have to say that cup of coffee is the best part of my morning! Heaven knows I am not a morning person!
