Coffee...you either love it or hate it. I finally began enjoying coffee when I was in my first year of teaching third grade. It was the only thing to drink in the teacher's lounge. I loaded it up with cream. (My husband drinks his that way) and it was palatable. The hot drink went well with my bologna sandwich.
I now enjoy coffee. (But it is so much more enjoyable with a hunk of chocolate cake). The caffeine gives me a pop in the morning. By mid-afternoon I NEED a hit of caffeine again. Sigh...How about you? I enjoy it the most when sitting with friends and sharing in coversation over a hot steaming, creamy cup of Java.
On How Stuff Works, a TV program, I learned all about coffee, espresso, and poop coffee. Yep. A weasel-like animal in Columbia eats the coffee bean and then poops it out. The feces is gathered, and CLEANED, and made into coffee for $400 a pound!!
I can just picture people following the weasel through the jungle with a pooper-scooper like the folks who follow the horses in parades down Main St. No wonder this is expensive coffee. You'd have to pay someone a lot of money to do this!!
Are you a coffee drinker? If so, why? If not, why not? Leave a comment to let us know. Just for fun, vote in the coffee poll in the sidebar at the right. Thanks!
