I can't tell you when I had my first cup but I can tell you who I think of when I smell that delicious aroma. Instant coffee reminds me of my grandma. Maybe because she doesn't know how to work a coffee maker, or want to deal with the trouble. It could be because it's convenient and so yummy. But when I go home, I know that kettle on the stove top is for her first cup.
Folgers Instant coffee is my morning go to when we are on the go. Okay that's most mornings. I barely can catch a second to have breakfast let alone wait for coffee to brew in a pot. Two minutes of water in the microwave until it's hot, a splash of cream, two sugar cubes and I'm ready to rock and roll.
Yup coffee on the go most of the time for us! It's the best single cup solution for our on the go life.
I do admit that on days when I can get up before the kiddos I still use Foldgers instant cofee. That's usually around 5am when it's still dark, it's just me, my notebook, and pile of books. I love getting warming up some water in my little blue kettle and reading a chapter or taking some time to write.
Mix up a cup with a drizzle of caramel and it's the perfect calm before the storm.
It's in these quiet little mornings that this cup of warm coffee reminds me of my grandma. I think about her sitting there at the kitchen table with her toast. So sweet and so peaceful. Whether I'm on the go or wanting to be nostalgic about my grandma, it's Folgers in my cup.
