Coffee Appreciation Post.


Thursday Morning by jettavegas.

Out of habit, I would say “Good Morning,” but to be fair it’s the afternoon. I slept in a bit later than usual today, but I let my body decide when it wanted to wake up, so 10:30AM it was. The only thing on my mind is coffee, and since I am working to write more and be proactive in terms of this website, here I am.

“This coffee falls into your stomach, and straightway there is a general commotion.  Ideas begin to move like the battalions of the Grand Army of the battlefield, and the battle takes place.  Things remembered arrive at full gallop, ensuing to the wind.  The light cavalry of comparisons deliver a magnificent deploying charge, the artillery of logic hurry up with their train and ammunition, the shafts of with start up like sharpshooters.  Similes arise, the paper is covered with ink; for the struggle commences and is concluded with torrents of black water, just as a battle with powder. ” / Honore de Balzac, The Pleasures and Pains of Coffee

“A cup of coffee – real coffee – home-browned, home ground, home made, that comes to you dark as a hazel-eye, but changes to a golden bronze as you temper it with cream that never cheated, but was real cream from its birth, thick, tenderly yellow, perfectly sweet, neither lumpy nor frothing on the Java: such a cup of coffee is a match for twenty blue devils and will exorcise them all.” / Henry Ward Beecher
