Hi Ladies...
Yep, second cup for me too. But my article made me aware of the jitters I can easily get, and even when I researched it I thought of all those pots of coffee I used to keep going all day long. I don't know how anyone could be around me then. Of course I was teaching, and ran like a whirlwind anyway, so the coffee probably didn't make much difference.

When we had the ice storm, I stayed with friends who did not drink coffee. That was my excuse for braving the ice and snow and coming home everymorning, well, that and making sure my cats were well and happy!!! But even then, I had to drink instant coffee, and mourned the loss of the old perculator that I used to have.

Thanks for reading the article, and so nice of you to write.
Sharon

My SO is of Italian descent, so coffee is a food group in our house :) It's so much a part of her life, that one of the little collections we have is odd/unique coffee pots. While I burnt through two Mr. Coffee's in college, I can't drink it any more - that caffeine gets to me too quickly. I do, however, get to make coffee each morning to get Sleepyhead up and going, so the wonderful aroma, and scooping the grounds into the filter, etc., are still very much a part of my morning. Have a sip for me, will you???

Hi Dryad, I am afraid I will have more than one or two sips for you! That's just the way I am. Anything for a friend!

The caffeine hasn't bothered me yet, it's just that I run like a whirlwind most days without it, so you can imagine what an extra cup does for me.

Thank you so much for writing, it is always great fun to hear from you.

Great artical. I think the most fun job I've ever had was working at a coffee shop. It was a lot like Cheers with esspresso insead of beer. Only problem was that by mid terms and finals I was drink 12+ shots each morning. Lol. Had to detox on seson breaks.

Thanks for the article. Good coffee is truly a gift, especially one with a nice hearty aroma!

Down here, it is possible to grow coffee trees in a protected location, and I can tell you, they are just beautiful little trees, with divine flowers.

Haven't figured out quite how to process the beans for a delicious cup o' joe, but I'm working on it.

So nice to hear from you!

Sharon, Will do!

Your daughter could definitely grow you some fresh coffee. There's actually a commercial coffee plantation not far from there in Davie.

Yes, she travels through Davie often, though I can't remember much of it. I'll have to check it out next time.
