Thoughts on coffee

For me, nothing is as satisfying as that first cup of coffee in the morning. Every single sip is creamy, smooth, and my cup empties fast. But if I decide to have a second cup of coffee a couple hours later, I do it entirely for social reasons or for sheer boredom. Even with theContinue reading “Thoughts on coffee”
