      Interesting thread, lots of different approaches to AM.
       
      Me, a glass of juice, usually orange, grapefruit, or V8 (if I'm "under the weather") followed by two cups of hot tea, plain. Except in warm weather months I substitute unsweetened iced tea for the hot tea. I don't drink coffee, never liked the taste.

        I've got a Keurig machine, and have tried a LOT of different coffees, and have some near winners, some losers and some okays. I'd like to hear opinons please! I like full flavored but not super dark roast. Starbucks is pretty good, but lacking something, Green Mountain breakfast blend not strong enough, etc. Looking for something in a medium roast that is substantial!

          I love my Keurig and the variety it affords since everyone and his brother is now making k-cups. I like the Green Mountain Breakfast blend, almost any variety of Tully's and of late I bought one of those gadgets that lets you grind your own and insert it into the machine. Works fine lasts a long time.

            I like the Newman's Own Medium Roast extra bold K-Cups.  I got a big box of them for Christmas and it's turned into my new favorite.

              OK, I'll 'fess up.  When I lived in Alaska we would go over to our friends' house at 9AM to watch football. ( 4-hour time difference) And yes, we would start the kick-off with Bloody Marys.  And we'd drink Bloody Marys at half-time and at the end of the game too!

               
              OK, if we want to talk about game days, then I too always start the day with a Bloody Mary at 9:00.  Always at the Blue Dube just North of the OSU campus.  We usually have about 3 before we head to the Shoe.

                Never understood the appeal of those K cups some of you talk about......the cost per serving is so high...and the ones I have tasted don't overly impress....Ok, so you can have dozens of varieties...very expensive varieties......If I want variety,I'll get half pound packages of new blends.....if I find a winner,I'll get larger amounts...I drink 2-3 mugs a morning.....K cups is a windfall for the coffee companies....pay by the single cup...premium price...I'll make my 12 cup pot of premium for less than half the price,I bet!!!

                  I'm not a very big coffee drinker. I like a cup at times...but just a cup. I don't need 12 cups. I like the Keurig it's fast easy done. The My K-Cup insert allows to to make any coffee your heart desires...if you don't want the regular K-Cups...

                    I love my Keurig.  I don't really care about the cost per cup, since I don't have that many.  I like coffee strong and dark.  My favorites are Double Black Diamond, and if looking for a caffeine kick, I choose Jet Fuel from the Coffee People.

                      Since I am no longer in Alaska (and therefore no excuse to drink Bloody Marys at 9AM) I grind Colombian beans every morning and make 2 cups for MH and 1 for me.  Sometimes followed by orange juice.  A small glass of spring water while waiting for the coffee to brew.

                        When I was a little girl, I wanted to drink coffee with my parents.( I also wanted a martini at night, but that didn't happen!) Mom gave me a cup of half coffee, half milk. I pretty much still drink it that way. In summer, I like plain iced tea. Lleechef and I will meet for Bloody Mary's one of these days. Breakfast in a glass....lol!

                          If it's the winter, something to warm up the blood.  A Hot Toddy with milk or some Caribou (maple syrup/port/whiskey liqueur) on ice.  A hot chocolate if I don't want to drink.
                           
                          In the summer, just juice or water.

                            Thank you for the tip, I bought a box, and now it's going to be my go-to brand, very good indeed!

                              I drink one cup at home before heading to the office, so I don't think the price per cup is killing me! If I were to make a 12 cup batch, it would cost me a lot more in waste than making one k-cup every morning. Old coffee sucks. Also, mine came with a basket so that I can use any coffee and the same price you buy it for. I use this when my relatives in CA bring me Peet's!

                                  My morning routine is set in stone.  Glass of water.  Start the coffee machine.  Take a shower and dress.  Have some coffee.  Have some grapefruit juice because that's what I really wanted all along.  Every.  Single.  Day.
