Instantly I can smell soft maple notes as well as cinnamon and I am not sure if I imagine a buttery underlay or if it is really there. The air around this cup of coffee actual tastes like a bite of French toast. When that dark liquid flows over my taste buds I am pleased to find that it is not bitter. Instead it is a light roasted flavour with a buttery finish. I would describe it as having the caramel-y flavour of toast blended with that sweet woody flavour of cinnamon. This morning’s coffee is JAVA Factory Roasters “French Toast cinnamon and maple syrup flavoured coffee.” If we were having coffee I would roll my eyes and exclaim how silly I am because I should have thought of adding a spoonful of maple syrup to my cup this morning and I didn’t. Silly me.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that my “me day” on the first day of school was nice. It was a bit strange to not have the boys around but when they got finished school they were so excited and full of stories about their days. It was great.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that we have had some nice weather this week. The morning is chilly, long sleeve shirt chilly, but the afternoon is warm. It has been nice given that it is September already. We have taken advantage of it with after dinner walks and family soccer games.
If we were having coffee I would share a picture of my gluten-free coffee cake. It turned out great and lasted for a heartbeat! And if we were talking food and French toast flavoured coffee I would have to confess that I might make raison bread French toast this weekend just because.
If we were having coffee I would sit back and listen to the details of your week.
