Coffee. I drink a decaf/full strength blend so I can have more of the delicious flavor without all the jitters of mega caffeine consumption. I brew it in a french press because... delicious. More than routine, coffee for me is a ritual. From the process of brewing, to sipping it from one of my many favorite thrift store mugs to the creative work I sit down to do with a fresh cup in my hand. I prefer sweet creamy delicious coffee in the a.m. and the bitterness of black coffee in the afternoon; hot or iced coffee makes no difference to me. The scent; the flavor....coffee reminds me to wake up to this moment and dive right in.
