Living in the Phoenix metro area...summer is H-O-T! We had a beautiful month of May enjoying wonderful mornings and only three days where we hit 100. However, June has come on with a vengeance with our first weekend with an excessive heat warning and temps from 113-116 for four days. Whew! Not good for a woman who hit 50 (ok last year) and having hot flashes.
No matter what the thermometer reads, I always enjoy a hot (very hot) cup of coffee (or 2). I've heard many people don't like to drink the hot stuff in the summertime, for me, it is a must have and the hotter the better.
I enjoy the "ceremony" of grinding the beans, heating the water and enjoying a pour over. Sitting down with that steamy cup is my quiet time and start of my day.
So how about you? Do you stop drinking hot coffee or as much hot coffee in the summer verses the winter? How about any tea drinkers out there? Do you still enjoy your cup of hot tea first thing or do you switch to an iced version in the summer?
Let me know...I'm going to get back to my hot cup of coffee....its 88 degrees and climbing.
