The aroma, the taste, the buzz, the culture, and the connections, all are worthy reasons.
In the morning coffee lifts me up and boosts my day.

I love the culture and variety of coffee:

Coffee is soothing on a rainy day, and melts away the brittle snow or ice of winter. When a day is full of hustle and bustle, taking the time to enjoy a cup of coffee calms me.

Drinking coffee also induces community. People like to drink coffee together. It makes talking easier and more comforting. It may be tea or some other beverage, but the concept of sitting around in comfy couches or chairs drinking something steamy and talking, is oh so inviting.

I suppose many people just drink coffee because it is caffeinated and a good energy boost, and that is certainly a good reason.

However, to me, coffee is an experience; something to slow down for, to savor and enjoy.

Of course what better experience to share coffee with, then
curled up with a great book!

  1. For me coffee has a settling effect. Even though caffeine is supposed to do the opposite, coffee sometimes slows me down. It is break before I head off to do whatever I’m going to do and a few moments of peace at the start of the day.

  2. I started drinking coffee when I was two and would climb onto Dad’s lap and help him eat his breakfast and drink his more-milk & sugar-coffee. When people ask me how I take my coffee, I roll up my sleeve and pump a vein… haha! The only time I don’t crave coffee is when I am sick, then I want tea – that was Mom’s drink. Yeah, there is a bit of psychology there! Love reading all these stories!
