Is this what you need to feel ready to face the day? That business meeting? The writing of the term paper?
Coffee plays a large role in our society: We offer it to guests, friends, and strangers. We offer it in the morning, at night, after a meal, between meals, with a meal. We like its smell, its taste, the sound of it being prepared, the oily, dark texture of the beans, the steaming and bubbly appearance of a cup freshly poured, and the warmth of the cup on cold hands. Connoisseurs speak of it with terms as flamboyant as those applied to wine, and coffee cafes have menus with more choices than letters in the alphabet. We use coffee as a drink and as a flavoring in puddings, ice cream, bread, and cookies. The economies of coffee have greatly changed many parts of the world.
