Knitter's Coffee Swap Questions

Coming right off the Knitter's Tea Swap 2 (which was delightful!) now I'm looking forward to this swap...I'm a new coffee nut...(tho' I've been drinking coffee since my teens)
1. Whole bean or ground? Ground (alas no special equipment with which to grind my own!) And just a little 2 cup drip Mr. Coffee (okay, it says 4 cups, but it's 2 mugs (at best!). It's just me, so
2. Fully-loaded or decaf? either
3. Regular or flavored? I prefer Hazelnut.
4. How do you drink your coffee? Hot. Iced. On the run in the my desk (work or home)...
5. Favorite coffee ever? Starbucks, tho' we have a couple of local houses that are also good (Daily Grind, Java the Hut).
6. Are you fussy about your coffee or will any old bean do? I drink Maxwell House French Roast daily...but that's not what I mean when I say I'm a "new" coffee drinker...I love special coffees and am becoming a junkie at the Starbucks window...
7. Favorite treats to have with your coffee? dark chocolate - I especially like almond biscotti with a dark chocolate glaze, plain dark chocolate with nuts biscotti (like B&N's), dark chocolate raspberry (in candy bar form!)
8. Anything else about your coffee preferences? Summer is Iced Mocha Latte with hazlenut and soy...winter is the same...just not iced! I use Equal or Sweet & Low in my regular morning brew...oh and sometimes I mix it up completely for a White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks!
9. What treats do you enjoy with your coffee? see above...chocolate...chocolate...but once in awhile (for a special treat) a cheese danish (only if I've been very very good in the diet and exercise category for awhile! lolol!
10. Yarn/fiber you love? merino sock and laceweight yarns...Noro, Roxanne's yarns, CTH, Trekking XXL, Claudia's, Koigu...Knitpicks, too!
11. Yarn/fiber you hate? I only use Caron Simply Soft in baby colors for baby blankets - otherwise, I prefer to stay away from acrylic as it hurts my hands.
12. What's on your needles? Noro Booga Bag, Knitpicks undyed laceweight merino Catharina shawl, Cherry Tree Hill Feather & Fan Socks, Knitpicks Gossamer Diamond Fantasy Shawl, Peace Fleece hats...
13. Favorite colors? Most anything - purple, fushia, emerald, turquoise, black, brown/pink combos, brown & earthtoned green combos, chocolate, denim, lavender, ivory - but I don't care much for yellow or orange...
14. Allergies? cigarette smoke. A huge no-no in my book!
15. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest?
I have a pampered Siamese cat and love anything (especially notecards & magnets) with Siamese on them.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
