What’s the best . . .

. . . maybe it depends on your mood . . .

It’s all debatable, but if it feels like the best to you, then it’s the best if you ask me.

 

 

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 sixth attempt answering “What is coffee?”

Coffee is . . .

  • understanding
  • mandatory
  • reassuring
  • peace
  • soothing
  • essential
  • required
*all responses–me, and a whole lot of other people I imagine

 

Candy for breakfast?

At home I regularly drink coffee sans cream and sugar. Sure I go through phases where I might add a little brown sugar, or I might add a bit of half-and-half, but for the most part plain coffee is my jam.

Outside of my home, I’m all about the fancy flavors. It makes my coffee more special, and I feel more justified in the expenditure–if it’s special than it’s okay to spend money on it!

However, I may be able to get some fancy flavors, and save some money, coming this new year.

I just learned that Coffee-mate will be coming out with Snickers and Dove Chocolate creamers!

I have a sweet tooth and I can definitely get on-board with these options. I was already excited for the new year, now I’m even more excited. I already knew I would break some New Year’s resolutions, but this time I know how I will break my sweets and desserts one😝.

There’s always news in the coffee-world, I think I just shared my favorite story of the year. Cheers!

My fifth attempt to answer “What is coffee?”

Coffee is  . . .

  • liquid wisdom (mug)
  • liquid sanity (mug/meme)
  • not just a drink, it’s a lifestyle (mug)
  • a gift (me . . . and a whole lot of other people)
  • autocorrect for my brain (meme)
  • daytime wine (mug)
  • my cup of tea (decoration)

But what about this place?

  • Let this be the next segment of “But what about this place?”
  • Let this be an addendum to my previous statement “Bring the suggestions, I will always go!”

I recently stumbled across the following article: Coffee Shop with Fish Swimming Right at the Foot in Saigon.

I did some digging and read more on this coffee shop and the concept. I have come to the conclusion that I just can’t do this.

I feel like I’m adventurous, but I don’t think I’m that adventurous.

I can’t sit in ankle deep water, in an artificial tank, with fish just swimming by my feet as I try to drink my coffee. I would be too jumpy and end up spilling my coffee! And honestly, it just sounds gross. I don’t want the smell of coffee disrupted by the smell of feet, or fish.

Maybe I am overthinking it, but this is one place I don’t find appealing, one place I cannot say I will put on my list of places to try–but maybe you could try it and let me know how it goes? 😬

Coffee Deliveries . . . of the future . . .

I recently stumbled upon the following: Coffee Drone Could Predict When You Need Caffeine–and Deliver It.

This delivery system is in new technological terrain. It would not just have a drone, instead of a physical person, delivering your coffee, it would have a smart system connected to you to be in tune with your exact caffeinated needs. Nifty.

Now, I’m a bit of a late-adopter when it comes to technology.

I didn’t get a Kindle account or a read a book on a device until about 3 years ago. I didn’t listen to audible until this year. I like older model cell phones–the kind that still fit into my pocket and have been paid off for years. So, the idea of an app connected to my body monitoring my caffeine routines doesn’t sound like fun. I won’t even wear a FitBit for my steps, heartbeat, or sleep patterns–I don’t want all this information documented or shared with me, my brain is full enough.

Furthermore, I still kinda like people. Kinda.

I still want some human interaction.

Yes, I truly believe we are robbing ourselves, slowly, of the remaining opportunities to practice conversation and basic human decency with strangers. It bothers me. So a drone? Not for me. I either want to order my coffee and speak with the barista, or thank the delivery person.

This is not for me, but maybe it’s for you. What do you think?

Would you want a coffee drone delivery system in your life?
