I love my coffee! I mean I love, love, LOVE my coffee. I love coffee so much that I named my dog, “Mocha”. Her fancy registered name is “Dark Chocolate Cafe Mocha with Whip” after my most favorite of all coffee drinks.
To give up my coffee would be SO awful. It’s not that I’m addicted to caffeine. I can go for days without having a cup. For me, it’s more about the coffee “experience” than anything. Meeting a girlfriend for a cup of tea just doesn’t cut it for me no matter how many different teas I try. They just don’t measure up or satisfy my friend time like a delicious cup of coffee does.
I’m picky about my coffee. It must be organic. Coffee is non-regulated where pesticides are concerned so unless you’re drinking organic, you’re most likely sitting down to a big ol’ cup of pesticide ridden java.
I don’t like to clean the coffee pot. What can I say. Thankfully I have an awesome little convenience store near my home that sells Larry’s Beans. I can stop in and pick up a quick cup and say hi to their awesome staff. Or, when I don’t feel like venturing out I have my own little stash of ingredients to make a cup I really enjoy, and one that’s a LOT healthier than you’re going to get at Starbucks.
