Got in this morning and the coffee maker for the studio was broken. Not a big deal, at least it's Friday. Got me thinking about the coffee that I would not be having during the show. And I love coffee. Not an addiction, I just really like to have a cup in the morning.

Since I am still doing intermittent fasting, most mornings the coffee is without sugar or cream. When I was in the Marines, I remember watching the guys open a can of grounds and simply stir it into a pot of boiling water. Let's just say that it wasn't the best coffee in the world. Either way, coffee is a part of our American culture for sure.

Coffee is delicious. I like it black, or with cream and sugar. But not just plain white sugar. I prefer the raw version of brown sugar. The best is when the sugar is crystallized on a stick. Have you ever had it? Only a few restaurants around the Garden State offer this option. Sometimes I will even add heavy cream to my coffee, but only on weekends. It's almost dessert when you think about it.

Speaking of weekends, it's here and I am looking forward to the cup of coffee I'll have on the way out of the studio, since, as I mentioned, the office coffee maker is broken.

What's your go-to coffee? Make it at home? Wait for the office? Stop at one of the million "fast-food" coffee stops on the way? One way or the other, hope you enjoyed the brew.

Enjoy your weekend and make sure you vote in the poll below.
