Mmm.  I love my morning cup of coffee.

It's not just the delicious aroma, the taste or the quiet time, but the health benefits too.  When I first tried coffee, I didn't enjoy it like I do now. While hosting Kiana's Flex Appeal, hair and makeup at 5am, pre production meetings at 6 am, filming at 6:30 am, coffee was a necessity.

 

While traveling, I have enjoyed all types of coffee from Hawaii to South America and Europe. In Brazil, the coffee is served in an expresso size cup and is thick and rich.  It was so thick, the spoon I used to stir it stood up straight!

In Paris, it was interesting that you go to a quick stand up coffee bar, drink your coffee and go---no sitting & working on laptops like people in the USA do at Starbucks.

To amp the health benefits even more so, I often add a tsp of coconut oil to my cup of  joe. Adds nutty creamy flavor.

In Hawaii, we put coconut oil or macadamia nut flavoring.
