Coffee Swap!

I still suck at blogging. Only a few more weeks, I swear!
But I thought I'd better get my questionnaire up for the Knitter's Coffee Swap before my partner wants to throttle me. Or send me Folger's Crystals and Red Heart from a yard sale. I'd probably prefer the throttling.

So, here is my questionnaire:
1. Whole bean or ground?
Ground. I have a grinder in a pinch, but I typically use it for spices, not beans. Just no weird powder or freeze dried substances.
2. Fully-loaded or decaf?
As loaded as possible, please. I'm a single mother afterall.
3. Regular or flavored?
4. How do you drink your coffee?
First I snort it up my nose, blow it back out, gargle it and swallow. Maybe I don't get this question? Oh, maybe we are talking cream or sugar here? Ok, well in regular coffee I like a little sugar and cream, not milk, cream. Espresso stays espresso in my house, which I love to have after (early enough) dinners.
5. Favorite coffee ever?
This is hard. I confess to being a lover of Starbucks. And when I really need a pick me up, I head for a Triple Grande Vanilla Latte. It makes me happy. Though I don't know if its my favorite, but its damn good.
6. Are you fussy about your coffee or will any old bean do?
Not any old, but it seems, after reading other questionnaires, that I'm less picky than a lot of the swappers. I like most of the top shelf grocery coffees, but can't really look down from there. Coffee from Italian grocers/shops are always welcome.
7. Favorite treats to have with your coffee?
Mmmm...biscotti! Which I also like to make when I have time...any good recipes? I often have dark dark chocolate with the aforementioned after dinner espresso. Morning coffee is just guzzled down with no accompaniments.
8. Anything else about your coffee preferences?
Nope, I like to try new coffees whenever I get a chance. I also like most other hot drinks.
9. Yarn/fiber you love?
Good sock yarn...Lorna's Laces, Socks that rock, Trekking, Noro, Anything that is soft and has subtle color graduations is likely to be completely loved by me.
10. Yarn/fiber you hate?
I'm not so hip on novelty yarns, though I suppose there are exceptions.
11. What's on your needles?
This is always a tricky one for me. I think 3 shawls, at least 2 pairs of socks, my mitered square blanket, a sweater, ummmm...good lord. I can even keep thinking about this!
12. Favorite colors?
Deep...I guess they call them jewel colors on the hip blogs. Purples, Reds, Greens, Blues.
13. Allergies?
No food allergies. Though I'm a vegetarian. No mystery meat in a tube Slim-Jims! Ick.
14. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest?Um, I really like to knit. And I really like coffee. Heehee!

Lucky I'm a patient woman. Folgers Crystals are just wrong but the Red Heart..maybe a great big ball of purple will be in your package, lol.

Time to go shopping, have a great week!

Your Knitter's Coffee Swap Pal, Tammy

Heya! I was just coming in to say 'give us a post please' when I saw that you did! How'd those 5 pages go? (I know, I know, it isn't as easy as all that!). Snort your coffee, ha! (better than what Keith Richards said he snorted, then he took it back). Send me an email and I'll send you a good biscotti recipe.

I have a great biscotti recipe - it's from my Oreo cookbook and it's Oreo biscotti! It feels kind of weird making a cookie out of a cookie, but they are really good. I'd be happy to send you the recipe, if you'd like.
