If coffee a morning must for you, it's time to shake up your everyday routine. Indulge in a fancy coffee drink —  homemade pumpkin spice latte, anyone?  Or perhaps your coffeemaker has seen better days. Find out which machines Food Network stars love and cross one off your wish list. If you're only into the java flavor, not the beverage, bake something delicious that features coffee as an ingredient. This mocha quick bread calls for instant espresso powder in both the batter and the glaze. Finally, take the coffee quiz from the most recent issue of Food Network Magazine. It's a fun way to start the day while sipping your morning joe. Plus, you just might learn a thing or two about how to make better coffee.
