I love coffee not just because it is delicious, not just because it gives me a caffeine boost I so desperately need, but because when brewed it fills your house with an aroma that transports you to a million different memories.

 

Sometimes when I’m filling my mug in the morning, that coffee smell hits me and reminds me of the click clacking heels down the hall of our church while we rush past the kitchen where there would be tons of coffee brewing, sometimes it reminds me of Christmas morning and how we had to stay in our beds until everything was ready and I could smell the coffee brewing while family filled the living room waiting for us to see what Santa had brought, sometimes I’m transported back to the woods where we camped with all our family and friends and while laying in my sleeping bag watching my breath puff out in the cold air I could hear the men laughing and brewing a pot over the fire.

My husband loves coffee and after he tucks me and the kids in the bed on the weekends, he goes downstairs and to make himself a cup and I drift off to sleep with the smell of coffee filling the bedroom and it is comforting.

 

Throughout all these years, all these memories, all those cups filled the one thing that remains the same is Folgers.  It is my family’s coffee of choice and still is.

 

Folgers has been a part of lasting traditions since 1850.  It is a trusted familiar favorite that brings a comforting start to each day!

 

Since everyone in my family loves coffee I always make sure to have our single-cup coffee maker ready and lots of Folgers K-Cups on hand.  I am so happy that I can get my favorite coffee for my favorite machine.

I always grab a box when I’m shopping at Food Lion and with so many varieties like Caramel Drizzle and Mocha Swirl it is hard to choose which one to try next!

 

I like to fill a little tiered tray with the cups so our guests can just pick one and they are just seconds away from a glorious hot cup of delicious Folgers coffee!

I make sure to keep it stocked when I have guests arriving and I also like to have a sweet treat to go along with our coffee.

 

This Mocha Sheet Cake is heaven and pairs perfectly with a steamy cup of coffee.  It is so easy to make too!!

 

Coffee gives your chocolate cake a special little pop of flavor and turns a chocolate cake into something spectacular.

 

This cake is my favorite to make and you always have all the ingredients on hand!

You can even use one of the flavored Folgers K-Cups to mix it up a little!
