10 Reasons I Drink Coffee

I don't know why I made this list, but I did, so here it is for your reading pleasure (or not)...

A list of 10 Reasons I drink coffee, in no particular order...
  1. I love the taste.  For reals.  I don't even like to camouflage it with a bunch of cream and sugar and other flavors.  Well, I do love cream/half and half/milk.  I feel like those things accentuate the flavor of the coffee.  I also admit that I love a good Peppermint Mocha.  It's just that all the flavors and such are not a necessity.
  2. It makes me see into the future.  OK, not really, but it does give me lots of energy.  I appreciate that.
  3. It's relaxing.  I know that sounds kind of weird, because caffeine generally is thought of as a "relaxant", but just the smell and warmth is soothing.
  4. It's a natural diuretic.  Did you know that?
  5. It has health benefits.  There are studies that show people who drink coffee are less likely to get Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and dementia.
  6. It makes me think more clearly.
  7. It gives me a reason to go to Starbucks.  I love going to Starbucks.
  8. It goes well with another hobby, reading.  There is nothing like a good book and a good cup of coffee.
  9. It's actually a passion of mine.  I love everything about it from the harvesting, to the roasting, to the brewing, and finally to the cup.  My mom and I used to have a coffee shop.  I would love to have a shop again one day.
  10. It's a good reason to meet up with a friend!  I can't tell you the times that I've met people for coffee...new acquaintances to old friends, it's just a great excuse to get together!
Do you love coffee?  If so, why do you love it?!  If not, what's your drink of choice?

The other day I helped in childrens' ministry at church. I figured when I was done I could go get coffee from the coffee station.
Imagine my chagrin when the pots were all empty.
Know what I did? I tried to get em to pour anyway. Like I couldn't SEE that they were empty, I had to demonstrate it too. I was sad.
Anyway. This morning I cuddled up on the couch with coffee and watched a favorite show. Heaven.

So, I left a comment on here earlier and now it's gone. I SWEAR I did because I said something along the lines of "You know I hate coffee. The taste gags me. I've tried to drown it in sugar, cream, milk and nothing makes that coffee taste go away. And I hate coffee breath. But I love the way it smells when brewing. I'm super weird. But if it saves me from dementia, it may be worth gagging it down the ol' pipes."

Now, did I not post that here? Maybe it was just in my head. Ugh.
