I don't know about all of you, but I am useless until I have my morning coffee.
Like many, I am a self declared coffee addict. Now it's not the caffeine. I can go decaf with no problem. It's not the fancy-schmancy drink combos you can order. I can go just plain brew straight up with no additives and still be ok. It's not even the whole status thing of walking out of any particular coffee joint donning a high fashion, oh so now paper cup. I am just fine with my 99 cent refill mug.
For me is simply the experience of coffee. It's the smell of the beans, the look of the steam rising from the cup, the sheer joy of that first sip of a deep dark roast wake me up coffee! The perking up of the senses as the morning's first cup trickles down my throat is a thrilling and exhilarating experience every day.
I may sound over the top about this whole coffee thing. This may be true. But every at place I have purchased a cup of coffee, I have experienced new things, made new observations, and simply enjoyed taking in the atmosphere.
In my postings here, I hope to share some of my thoughts and observations with you as well as have you share yours with me.
So grab a cup of brew, have a seat, and let's chat over coffee!
