My Morning Routine with Community Coffee

Friends there's something about a routine I love. Maybe it's knowing what the next day brings or maybe I just crave structure in my life. I'm a catch 22 because I'm a go with the flow kind of gal, but then I live by routine and schedule. Come on I schedule my workouts!

Anyway -- with a little one I've had to learn to be a bit more flexible, especially in the morning. But there are some things I just can't skip. Like a big cup of coffee and a healthy breakfast.

Two mornings a week I get up and head to the gym at 6 a.m. for spin class. After a solid sweat sesh I head home to a freshly brewed pot of coffee! I grab a cup and start breakfast. Around 7:30 a.m. Emerson wakes up. Which is perfect timing. Breakfast is ready to be served.

The two of us sit down and enjoy breakfast together. The hubs has to be at work at 7 a.m. during the week so he doesn't join in the fun until the weekend. Breakfast can be anything from eggs and avocado toast to paleo pancakes.


After breakfast is cleaned up I set Emerson up in the bathroom with a few toys and books so I can shower.

A quick shower is followed by me scrambling to get myself and Emerson ready for the day. Around 8ish I drop Emerson off at preschool [3 days a week] and then head home to work. Obvious work varies from day to day.

In a nut shell that's my morning routine. It's pretty simple, but it works for me. There's just something about starting the day with a workout and cup of coffee.

Now let's talk about coffee because I'm pretty serious about my coffee -- even though I need creamer. First I absolutely love my new OXO On Barista Brain 9 Cup Coffee Maker [c/o]! The microprocessor-controlled brew cycle replicates the pour-over method to produce SCAA-certified perfect coffee. There's also a freshness indicator making it easy to determine when the coffee was made.


Whether you’re entertaining guests, keeping up with the kids or simply looking to enjoy a smooth cup of joe or iced coffee is a must. Recently we've been using Community Coffee. Aside from Community Coffee being pretty good coffee, the company gives back in a big way. In my book that's a win, win. Why not purchase with a purpose?! Learn more about their giving back programs like Military Match and Cash for Schools HERE. Fun fact: the Military Match program just reached a new milestone – 4.2. million cups of Community® coffee shipped to active-duty military personnel around the world.

P.S. Their seasonal favors are OUT and I can't wait to give the Pumpkin Praline a try!

What does your morning routine look like?

A big thank you to Community Coffee for providing samples for the hubby and to test. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting brands who help make this blog possible.
