Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 4

Is a cobbler a branch on the pie-family tree? Shoulder shrug. For the purpose of my Pie Flavoured Coffee Series I am including this fruity dessert here. The exotic smell of blueberry fills the kitchen. Its sweet and fruity odour is the dominant sniff in this coffee. There is no sweetness in the flavour. It… Continue reading Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 4

Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 3

The powerful smell of nutmeg is the star scent in my mug this morning. It is sweet and earthy smelling. There is no hint of sweetness in the sip instead it is both warm and earthy in flavour. Yet it is a spicy sip that if savoured can be described as a wash of fall… Continue reading Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 3

Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 2

My coffee flavour is Grasshopper Pie. I have no idea what Grasshopper pies is. So, as I listen to the soft gurgle and trickle of my coffee brewing I do a fast Google search. Google shows a pastel coloured no-bake mousse pie with a chocolate crumb crust. That first sip reveals none of the flavour… Continue reading Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 2

Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 1

I was drawn to a particular Keurig pod this morning. One of my favourtie flavours of pie is pecan. So when I saw pecan pie flavoured coffee I had to brew it. There is a buttery sweet odour to it. The colour in my mug is a classic deep rich brown. As I take that… Continue reading Pie Flavoured Coffee Series: Coffee 1

Coffee in the pre-Christmas build up

The smell of sweet spices rises from my mug: ginger, cinnamon, allspice and cloves. A true gingerbread smell captured in a hot cup of coffee! That honey and molasses odour conjures up warm and cozy holiday feelings. My first sip of Brooklyn Bean Roastery Gingerbread Man brown sugar ginger coffee is no let down. Those… Continue reading Coffee in the pre-Christmas build up

Platforms? Options? Choices?

This year I have been writing a novel and the novel is finished in rough. It is interesting in the wake of finishing a rough draft one would think that there is down time. However, this is far from the case. The editing starts and there are so many more things to consider and to… Continue reading Platforms? Options? Choices?

That last chapter – the end is just another beginning

This year I have been writing a novel and as I happily shared with you all last week, the novel is finished! “The hard part about writing a novel is finishing it.” – Ernest Hemingway Writing that second last chapter was kind of intimidating. I knew where I wanted the story to go as an… Continue reading That last chapter – the end is just another beginning

Coffee’s wispy vapours

I sit quietly watching the steam rising form my mug. It is playful as it rolls and dances softly on the cooler air currents. There is potential for me to get lost in the steam this morning as my lazy mind rolls and dances with the wispy vapours. The window that provides my backdrop is… Continue reading Coffee’s wispy vapours
