There are some things that have been with us since the beginning of time, apparently one of them is coffee. A global acceptance of this drink, albeit brewed in various ways, certainly connects us coffee drinkers.
So what is the magic of this bean, that is still hand picked, and seems to have changed little through the centuries? Generally ripened to perfection on the plant, then harvested, dried, roasted and processed for our enjoyment. My friends argued, that coffee beans were not hand picked! I could barely believe it myself, that today coffee beans are still hand picked, and we still have consumer pricing as fairly reasonable. Considering all the facts, coffee is cheap!
I judge the friendliness of a community, by how many cafes I see, yes that’s right! When I go to NYC I see lots of cafes, outdoor dining, and coffee bars; that tells me that this community loves to chat, and is a great place to make friends! Of course, loners can just hold up the New York Times wide open, while sitting, at their fav cafe also . @ZagatBuzzCafesNYC
Whether you wake up early just to talk to your Mom, over a cup of cafe au lait (like I used to do), or you make it a point to meet friends at your local coffee shop; the social aspect of coffee, has become one of its most important, yet endearing ingredient!
