Coffee.....they like it strong up here.....

So today is my first day back to work in almost three weeks. I decided to head to the staff lounge and get a cup of coffee since I felt like I needed a boost today. We just got this new coffee machine.....I don't know much about it.......I think it is a Bunn.........anyways it brews and serves one cup at a time. So I went it and started looking through all of the coffee selections......I think there is about 8 choices for coffee...... 3 or 4 for tea. Anyways I start to look and I notice that almost all of them are marked Bold ( meaning strong). Now when I moved up to Seattle I was not much of a coffee drinker....and if I did have coffee it would have to be doctored up with lots of cream and sugar. But since I have been here I understand why we are the coffee capital......... in the winter months you just plain need it. I have noticed that my coffee consumption has not only increased over the years.......but it has also changed.......I now don't need all the cream and sugar. I do like a little soy milk in it but that is usually it. So when I was looking at my choices this morning I had to laugh that there was only one option for a medium blend coffee. I picked it up and brewed my cup and enjoyed it. Funny how such a little change seemed so apparent to me this morning. A few years ago I would have just walked away and not had a cup.............does this mean I am turning into a true Seattlite??

Say it isn't so! No cream or sugar/sweetner? That's about the same as "liking" the taste of beer!I was going to text you this morning to see if you were having another snow day but I guess not! One question tho....how is it that you guys have a coffee maker with 8 choices of coffee and 3 or 4 for tea in your lounge and we don't and shouldn't even have a coffee maker except maybe one per grade level? Just doesn't seem right!
