What is coffee?

Okay we’re entering double-digit responses on this one . . . by now I’m sure you’re well aware of my desire to answer this question from multiple angles.

So, “What is coffee?”

Well, *supposedly*, from a variety of conversations, articles, news stories, etc.

Coffee is . . .

  • an aphrodisiac (saucy!)
  • addictive (well, did you see the first point?)
  • a diuretic (that might be a problem . . .)
  • stimulating your bowels (well, this is a problem, and how can it do that and be an aphrodisiac? 🤔)
  • a carcinogenic ( . . . and this is what happens with the internet, I went from being sexy to dying)

Coffee Lesson #16

latte:

  • also referred to as caffé latte (Italian name/word origin)
  • coffee drink made with espresso and steamed milk
    • variations of the drink can include replacing standard steamed milk with other types of milk such as soy, almond, cashew, etc.
    • can be served cold–an iced latte is espresso with chilled milk poured over ice
  • considered a morning drink, especially in Italy/Italian culture

May 29, 2019: Quote of the Day

“The fact is, I don’t know where my ideas come from. Nor does any writer. The only real answer is to drink way too much coffee and buy yourself a desk that doesn’t collapse when you beat your head against it.”

–Douglas Adams

World’s Most Expensive Cup

A cup of coffee can be cheap, quite affordable, and still be good.

A cup of coffee, every day, can also add up quickly.

Drinking coffee is a habit, a routine, and ritual for many people around the world. It tastes good, it feels good, and it is worth the expenditure, in my opinion.

While I support the idea of drinking coffee, trying coffee, and spending a little pocket money on coffee, I’m also rationale, reasonable, and responsible. I live within my limits, which means I will be skipping the world’s most expensive coffee.

Where is the world’s most expensive cup of coffee? Of course in one of the most expensive cities in the world: San Francisco.

One of my favorite cities in the world is serving one of the most, supposedly, tasty cups of coffee in the world–for the mere price of $75. That’s not a typo.

Am I curious? Yes. Do I want to try it? Absolutely. Can I try it? Nope. No way can I justify spending that much on a single cup of anything. So I will leave it to you, please let me know how it is, let me know if it is truly as magnificent as it should be . . . for $75!

Oh and luckily, for all of us, this cup will eventually make its way around California, available at your nearby Klatch Coffee. So if you’re not in San Francisco, maybe you could still try it for me. 😜

What is coffee?

My ninth attempt to answer “What is coffee?”

Coffee is  . . .

  • healthy
  • beneficial
  • full of nutrients
  • a good source of caffeine
  • part of a balanced diet
  • loaded with antioxidants

 

**I’m neither a nutritionist nor a medical provider of any sort, but trust me–coffee has a lot going for it . . .
