coffee


I am a coffee snob
I confess.
It started I think when I was 16 years old and too young
to be drinking coffee
My sister Bonnie used to buy beans, grind them,
make it strong, add real cream.

Then I went to Italy.
yes Italy!
Italian coffee is wonderful.
We went on our way home from Israel.
I had no money, and in those days you could
have a stopover with no added cost.
In those days??
Late 70's!
Anyways, we slept in the train station,
hostels,
we ate bread, and fruit and
drank coffee!!
The best coffee ever!

Now I am a dark roast,
freshly ground,
kind of girl.

MMMMM...
Brewster's serves medium roast.
I don't hold it against them.
I just ask for a shot of expresso.

They have wifi and I am happy to sit here and drink
pretty good coffee and do my interneting.
 I wish I could just go online at home but that isn't possible.
Gotta make the most of it.
I am.

*takes a big sip*
