“Forever: the time it takes to brew the first pot of coffee in the morning”

What’s the best . . .
Where’s the best . . .
What’s the best . . .
. . . maybe it depends on your mood . . .
. . . maybe it depends on your week . . .
. . . maybe it depends if you’re on vacation . . . or at work . . . or at home . . .
It’s all debatable, but if it feels like the best to you, then it’s the best if you ask me.
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. 😜
So the tagline reads: Coffee Shops & Caffeinated Ideas.
Someone asked, where are the ideas? Well, I posted them, as they came to me, on the Twitter. It felt like the right place to put them. It’s easy, it’s quick, and it adds to the overall brand of Cups and Comments.
However, if I don’t say where they are, how would you have known?
From now on, I will make sure to include them here. While I still plan to put them first on the Twitter–you can follow me @cups_comments –I will make sure to periodically post them here too.
For your reference here are all of my caffeinated ideas so far (March 2018-April 2018)–at times unrelated to coffee, but definitely sparked after the coffee kicked in.
It was not until I had to sit down and read, research, and think about coffee vocabulary that I realized before and after had their own terms–ground coffee (before) and coffee grounds (after). Funny how these connections came about–I love what this coffee blog is providing me!
Caffeine is found in a variety of foods and drinks.
I have heard about caffeine–who hasn’t? I have read about its positive and negative effects.
For me, the caffeine in coffee is partly why I try to drink it early in the day. It’s also why I love drinking it in the morning, it’s my favorite pick-me-up.
There really is nothing like a good cup of coffee to wake me up in the morning . . .
Oh Lord . . . let’s see:
. . . and my personal favorite: nothing.
Over the years I have tried almond milk, cashew milk, soy milk, whole milk, half and half, sugar, Baileys, Kahlúa, lemon, cinnamon, chocolate, caramel, mint, whipped cream, and sprinkles. I either requested the addition, the addition came automatically with the order, or I saw it available and thought to myself, why not?
Interestingly, this list is not exhaustive. I hadn’t heard of some of these options until I researched and asked for added input from friends. I’m also hyper-aware that sometimes culture influences not only what kind of coffee is served, but how it is served. Perhaps if I went to another part of the world I would get a whole new list of items.
At the same time, while I learn about current possibilities, I also know that baristas, coffee enthusiasts, and coffee connoisseurs are constantly testing boundaries. The next craze, the next element of allure and sophistication, is waiting to be discovered.
This list will never be complete.
For now though, at home, I’ll take my coffee in its purest form: black. It’s the easiest, and the cheapest. Any additions I’ll leave to the expert baristas and coffee shop owners to create, offer, and provide for me. It’ll make the experience away from home feel all the more different and all the more special.
