Coffee Brainstorm

 

Coffee makes me happy for many reasons. I guess the biggest reason is the way it tastes. It is like a flavor explosion in my mouth – I blow on the steaming liquid and take small sip – immediately it fills my mouth with that glorious flavor…coffee. I’m not a drinker to wake up. I don’t need coffee to be pleasant. I’m fine without it. I drink it because I love it. I drink it because it tastes so good. I’m not a flavored coffee lover – I just love a really good cup of coffee or cappuccino – I like the flavor of the coffee to come through. I don’t need French vanilla or hazelnut or mocha to make my cup outstanding. Nope. Just give me a steaming hot mug of coffee with lots of cream and two sugars and you will have a happy woman.

 

I love how the mug feels in my hands – how I have to hold it gingerly and think about what I’m doing. A mug of coffee is in a class by itself – it can’t be chugged or sucked through a straw without care. No, it has to be sipped and sipped slowly.

 

Europeans have the right idea. Coffee to go is a foreign concept. Coffee is meant to be savored and sipped from cups and saucers not slurped on the run. A sacrilege. I agree.

Lots of cream
Two sugars
Equals my bliss

 

I don’t need coffee to be pleasant or awake
I drink it because I love it
How the mug feels in my hands
Gingerly held
In a class by itself

 

It can’t be chugged
Or sucked through a straw without care
No, it must be sipped slowly
Savored
Any other way a sacrilege
