A very familiar TV ad in the US is one for Folger's Coffee: "The best part of wakin' up is Folger's in your cup."
I also threw in a little dedication to Michael F. O'Brien who lives on the Big Island, not far from Parker Ranch. (probably drinking Kona coffee instead of Folgers! ☺)

    A very comforting capture! From my early childhood I remember being comforted by the sight of the steam from my mother's morning coffee. Now I find comfort in mine. What a perfect start to the day.
