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:
I enjoy learning about the different countries that grow coffee.
I’m intrigued by different roasting and brewing techniques. I love the roasted nutty smell and taste of good coffee beans. Experimenting with coffee flavors and styles can be a lot of fun.
I am fascinated with all the wonderful different ways to enjoy the incredible edible coffee bean.
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.
However, to me, coffee is an experience; something to slow down for, to savor and enjoy.
What do you enjoy most about coffee?
Today after endless rain, hail out-of-nowhere, over-the-top wind, and other various different backdrops for our not so lovely 40 degree weather, Portland Oregon skyrocketed to a luscious 80 degrees and sunny… Needless to say, summer fever is in the air!
So here is a little Meet n’ Greet in the warm spirit of Sunshine:
“Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo)”
“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair…”
