One of my memorable coffee moments would be years and years ago while I was camping with my Girl Scout troop. In the morning after we finally got the fire started and water boiling in our old tin coffee cans I was finally able to pour water over my Folgers dipping coffee bags. It certainly does not sound like a memorable experience but after spending a night in a sleeping bag in cold and damp tent, that coffee was probably some of the best and most cherished that I have ever drank.
Another greatly appreciated coffee experience was after a long night flight to Sydney. After arriving at our hotel and being unable to check in because it was too early in the morning, we walked several blocks to McDonald's. McDonald’s, never one of my favorite places, but again that first cup of coffee seemed like we had made it to heaven.
And there is nothing like sitting on a sunny porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean drinking your morning brew and watching the dolphins cruise the shoreline looking for their breakfast.
Another special “Coffee Moment” was when I landed for a layover in Addis Abba Bole International Airport. I didn’t drink a cup of coffee there, I inhaled my coffee; the fragrant aroma permeated the air in the airport. I will never be able to think of Ethiopia without a strong desire to have a cup of coffee!
And call me crazy but another special coffee moment is when I one way or another win a Starbucks gift card!! LOL
“Coffee is far more than a beverage. It is an invitation to life, disguised as a cup of warm liquid. It’s a trumpet wakeup call or a gentle rousing hand on your shoulder … Coffee is an experience, an offer, a rite of passage, a good excuse to get together.” ~ Nichole Johnson
For those of us that love our brew, java, joe, mud, cafe, coffee or whatever name you call it by, we know that life is better because of coffee!
