Why I Love Drinking Coffee

I don't remember exactly when I started drinking coffee. I know I was very young, perhaps around preschool or younger. I am not kidding!
My grandma used to sell beans and other legumes in the public market of the town where I grew up. She also sold ground coffee beans. They had this area in their yard, next to the dirty kitchen, a separate small shed where they roast and grind coffee beans. I can still picture (in my head) my late grandfather roasting coffee beans while whistling tunes of folk songs. That is how I gained knowledge of how coffee is made.
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?


  1. I have grown to NEED coffee every morning. That and a shower. I love coffee. :)

    1. It has become a NEED for us moms. 😉

  2. I love how much of a connection you have with coffee and how it's been a part of you for so long! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  3. That centuries-old brewed drink! I think that when you appreciate coffee more than the caffeine it provides, that's when you truly begin to love coffee. I prefer black brewed coffee cold or hot without sugar. I have a ritual with this drink 3 times a week:)-Shera

  4. I love coffee and I will always need it since being a mom! Great read!

  5. I have loved coffee for almost my entire life! Sadly, it turns out I have a caffeine allergy, so I can only drink decaf. But still, it's coffee! I'll never turn down a good old iced coffee!

    1. Sorry about your allergy... You're right, decaf is still coffee!

  6. I'm more of a tea girl, but my SO LOOOVES coffee!!
