I can go without a lot of things, but coffee isn't one of them. I enjoy coffee a lot, so I thought I'd share some of the great coffee's I drink during the day and evening.

I should point out first that I use a Keurig, and I swear by them. If you don't have one, put it on your Holiday wish list. You'll be glad you did. All the coffees I've selected are k-cups designed for the Keurig.

If you're like me, you need a good strong shot in the morning. After a lot of sampling, I selected one that gives me the boost I need without any bitterness that is so prevalent in strong coffee. It's called Donut Shop Xtra bold. It wakes you and is great tasting. If you try it once, you'll keep on going back for more. It also happens to be my favorite.

Next in the coffee line is Green Mountain Medium Roast. It's lighter than Donut Shop, yet still has a slight kick to it. I usually have one of these thirty to forty five minutes after my Donut Shop. They compliment each other perfectly. That takes care of my early morning coffee.

I like to make my own coffee at home rather than drink the office brew. I use Hills Brothers. I make a pot, pour it in my thermos, take it to work,  and I'm good to go all day. I never drink a whole thermos full, but it sure is great when you need a quick shot.

I usually arrive home later than most people, and I need to relax. To help me do that, I use Zen Green Tea Blend by Tazo. It really does relax you to the point you're at least half human after a long days work. It has a slight minty  taste to it, but not overpowering. It definitely does the trick.

During the cold weather season, I'll try a Swiss Miss Cocoa from time to time. I was doubtful at first when Mrs. Rayman brought it home for me to try, but it tastes remarkably good..almost like the real thing. Also, if you use your voice a lot as I do, it quickly soothes the roughness, and that's an added benefit.

I hope you'll try some of these blends I use on a daily basis. I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy them as much as I do. You may want to have some of these on hand for the Holiday season as well, they're that good!
