I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake. ~Lewis Black
Happy Friday everyone. As I sit here drinking my morning cup of coffee, I was thinking how much I enjoy having it every morning; look forward to it and don’t know how I ever did with out it. Why do we love coffee so? What is this love affair with coffee? Maybe it is that wonderful aroma in the air, the smell of coffee beans brewing first thing in the morning . Maybe it is the warming effect of a smooth cup of coffee on a cold winter’s day. Could it be the company of other people, the familiarity of like-minded people all huddled together, blurry eyed, half asleep, all with the one thing in common, waiting for that morning fix. It is a ritual for some of us, whether we make our coffee at home or get it to go at our favorite coffee café, coffee becomes a part of our morning routine. Having that one jolt of caffeine to jump-start our day, to get us moving, stimulating our heart rate and increasing our mental acuteness. Whether you like a light, medium or dark roast; black, Mocha or Vanilla flavored, coffee just makes us feel better and that’s why we love it.
