I like it simple - coffee, creamer and sugar (if the creamer is not sweetened). Once in a while, I indulge with the flavored, fancy-named coffees in shops or drive-thru's. Home brewed is still my favorite. I had my fair share of drinking instant coffee too - it is still coffee, quick and easy to prepare and a lot cheaper. I do not mind drinking instant coffee but if there is freshly brewed ground coffee, I would choose the latter.
I know too much caffeine is not good but I always think more of the benefits of drinking this awesome hot beverage. I am sure you have read articles or watched videos about the benefits of coffee like I did and I am not going to enumerate them here. I do, however, want to share my reasons for loving coffee.
First, it helps me start my day right. I feel like it is difficult for me to get my morning going if I haven't had my coffee. Can you relate?
Second, it helps me keep warm (Duh!). I am the type who gets cold easily so coffee is a basic necessity especially during the cold seasons. I drink tea and wine too in case you wanted to know.
Lastly, it reminds me of my childhood and culture. The good memories, my family and relatives... Ah, there is so much to reminisce! It all comes back to me as soon as I smell that strong fragrant invigorating aroma of coffee.
How about you, why do you drink coffee?
