A ~ Z of Marvelousness: C is for Coffee
I prefer my coffee black but enjoyed this
particularly pretty cup at71 Irving Place, Gramercy, New York City, Irving Farm being one of the
best coffee roasters out there.
Where to even start singing the praises of coffee? The smell of
coffee on a cold winter morning, sitting on the sidewalk, people-watching, sipping on a cup of
coffee. Fellow coffee drinkers (the great like-minded) agreeing that coffee is always a good idea... Anticipating that first cup of coffee is often the greatest motivator to get
out of bed.
I know that Java refers to beans produced on the Indonesian island
of Java but it does rolls beautifully off the tongue…
A guy called Sheik Omar discovered coffee. After being exiled from
Yemen, he started chewing on berries from a shrub to foil starvation. After roasting
the bitter berries, he discovered their flavor and after boiling them he
discovered the deliciously fragrant taste of coffee… People were so impressed
with his discovery that he was invited back to his country and made a saint..
