6/52 Portraits – Coffee or Tea?

It’s week 6 of 52 weekly self portraits.

Coffee or Tea or?? Showcase your love for that one drink that helps carry you through your day.

Coffee for me please! I’ll have an iced mocha… Low acid coffee with stevia chocolate syrup and a splash of rice milk.


Here I am perusing my extensive Coffee Coffee & More Coffee Pinterest board remembering when I could drink all those steaming hot designer coffee drinks without irritating my tummy. A year plus of pain meds for my osteoarthritis before my hip replacement left my stomach pretty sensitive. Nothing serious, but not interested in making it worse! 😉 Oh and red wine is off the menu for the same reason, that’s been replaced by fizzy water. Ce la vie!

At least I’ve found a coffee hack that works! And it’s better for the budget!

What do you love to drink? Can you get it commercially or do you have your own recipe?

It’s nice this week not to be going through a catharsis with my self portraits! Phew. Until next week…

    I used to love the coffee they served at the Vietnamese pho place I visited regularly years ago. They had a little drip filter filled with Cafe du Monde (coffee/chicory blend from that restaurant in New Orleans–excellent flavor!) which sat on top of a cup that had a big spoonful of sweetened condensed milk in the bottom. Better than any latte I’ve ever had!

    Now, I too am trying to cut back on acid and sugar. I found that espresso is less acid than regular coffee, so every morning I dump a spoonful of instant into a small amount of hot water, than fill the mug with skim milk & heat in the microwave. Not exactly classy, but it gets me through my morning.

    I am not discriminating about coffee AT ALL. I only drink a cup or two a day, but it can be anything. Decaf, cream, half and half, sugar, no sugar, flavored, iced, hot, strong, weak, whatever. I love coffee.
