I have done my share of experimenting in my life.
Cigarettes made me feel cool when I was young. Then they caused bronchitis four times a year and I had to give them up.
Let’s not talk about the other substance experimentation.
Alcohol was once very important to me. Being Irish, it was the center of all celebrations. But my aging organs began to rebel against over-consumption. Now a glass of wine now and then suits me just fine. Too much and I am useless for a few days.
One substance that has stood the test of the years is coffee. I love coffee!
Bottomless cups in Chicago diners and coffee houses were the focus of my youth. This was back in the day when you went to a coffee house to listen to folk music, Ha!
Then the modern coffee shops appeared. I have loved Caribou, Peets and, of course, Starbucks.
My love to coffee has been life long and will likely stay with me for the duration.
In this little corner of my web world, I want to dedicate some space and words to my love of coffee.
Do you share my obsession?
