Where Do You Enjoy Your Coffee?

sip coffee and enjoy your landscape

Where do you enjoy your morning coffee? Do you enjoy your coffee as you watch the sun comes up and the birds start to sing? In my opinion, that’s the best way to start the morning. There isn’t much that tops the serenity of those first moments of the day before the world comes to life and begins to demand your attention.

That’s why, a few years ago, I decided to do some landscaping projects around my house. I wanted to turn my backyard into a haven – a quiet place where I could enjoy my morning coffee and wind down in the evenings. I wanted it to become a place to rest and recuperate from stressful days and the busyness of life. After a quick search for “Indianapolis Landscape Design,” I found a local landscaping company to help turn my backyard into the haven I dreamed of.

In the end, they added a patio and pergola, a fountain, and a variety of plants and flowers to my yard. Not only did these improvements to my landscaping add to the overall appeal of my yard, but it also drew new wildlife, including hummingbirds and deer. Now, in the mornings, I have my morning coffee on my new patio as I enjoy the peaceful sound of the fountain along with watching hummingbirds gather nectar, deer, and birds feed at the bird feeder in my backyard. My outdoor coffee time in the mornings has now become my source of energy for the day.

If you enjoy your morning coffee time and the outdoors, I highly recommend considering the prospect of enhancing your backyard landscape. It has been a game-changer for me as I have learned to have a quiet time gathering my thoughts and enjoying my coffee and nature all at the same time.

Bulletproof Coffee: Fact or Fiction?

If you’re like me, then you’ve seen and are at least CURIOUS about this “bulletproof coffee” that guys like Dave Asprey are showing up all over the internet selling on videos and other forms of media, right?

The idea is that in the way we make our coffee today, there are toxins that form naturally during some part of our process–I’m not claiming to be a genius here, just watch the video for yourself:

Step 1

He starts with the source and tells you straight off that you need to brew in the right “upgraded coffee beans” which he creates and he claims give you a very different mental feeling.  Don’t know if it’s true or not, but I can tell you that the “pour over” method is by far my favorite method of enjoying roasted coffee!  I’ll even make the barista’s at Starbucks mad because I’ll ask for it there–I feel like for $5 coffee, I can ask for a little extra service, but maybe that’s just me!

Step 2

Add about two tablespoons of butter, made from the milk of grass fed cows.  He mentions the yellow tint to the butter that you need in order to pull this drink off properly.  Don’t skimp here.

Step 3

Add “brain octane oil”?  Not for me, but I can’t say either way what the benefits, pros or cons are because I haven’t experienced it myself.

Step 4

Blend in the coffee, butter, and oil, and enjoy!

The recipe isn’t difficult, neither is the process–though it can certainly be time consuming.  But the end result is claimed to be creamier than a latte, tastier than your average cup of joe and providing you “good fat” calories that will supplement or compliment your average breakfast.
