or a lot of us, coffee is basically lifeblood. It wakes us up and gets even the most hectic mornings off to a semi-manageable start. Thankfully, it seems like there are more places to get coffee than there are birds in the sky. The varieties available are also seemingly endless.
Well, here's one more option to add the list.
A Japanese man has been brewing something amazing for adventurous sippers. By harnessing the power of a pungent vegetable and a little ingenuity, he's made an alternative to morning joe that we can't wait to try out.
Oh, coffee, how we love thee. Let us count the ways.
To much of the public, coffee is more than just a drink — it’s a friend. It’s the kind of best friend that wakes you up, puts you in the right mindset, and whispers, “I know you only got three hours of sleep last night, but today’s still going to be amazing. Oh, and you look faaaaaabulous.”
Even if we don’t.
People on the coffee train are proud of it.
Once an individual is indoctrinated into the coffee lifestyle, there’s no going back. We put our love for it on T-shirts and signs, and some of us buy pillows on Etsy with the words But first, coffee cross-stitched across the front. Whether it’s a plaque proclaiming Everything is better with coffee in the kitchen or an Instagram of an artful latte, we want to tell the rest of humanity about our obsession.
One of the greatest things about our BFF is that it's not in short supply.
No matter how it’s procured, the fantastic thing about a cup of hot joe is that it’s downright accessible (and in hundreds of different ways). For quite a while, people had to look to the lone coffee pot to fill our morning mugs. And while we’ll always love the old percolator, there were newer options on the horizon that have captured our caffeine-loving hearts.
Coffee went high-tech and we followed right along.
With the dawn of the Keurig and its teeny, tiny single-serve cups, the world was could finally whip up personalized java in seconds. No need to brew an entire pot when you’re trying to find your shoes and run out the door. Just pop in a pod, and you’re sitting in morning rush-hour traffic in no time.
Don't own a coffee maker? No problem.
Even if we don’t use a traditional coffee pot or a fancy Keurig at home, that doesn’t stop us from enjoying a nice, hot cup of sunshine. Commerce is a beautiful thing. When it comes to cafes on every corner, a coffee pot in every gas station, and about a billion fast-food joints that’ll whip up a large cuppa joe for a dollar, we consider ourselves pretty lucky to have so many options.
