Some of my fondest childhood memories are waking up to my Dad in the kitchen singing this song while making his morning carafe of coffee.. c’mon you know it.. “The best part of waking up..” Now my kids wake up to me in the kitchen singing along while sipping my morning cup of nectar. It has become a tradition. I don’t dare go without 2-3 cups while I enjoy the few minutes of sanity before my day starts. I have used coffee to exfoliate and have baked it into cakes and used it in my garden, even used it to give fabrics an antique look. I think I am obsessed!
