Why Do I Drink Coffee?

Jan 26, 2008
I woke up this morning with this question on my mind. Why do I drink coffee? Let's see if I can count the ways. First of all, I even make my coffee before going to the bathroom. That must be important if it is the first thing I do after waking up. So I got the first part of my question answered. It is important.

I have been making coffee for years. Quite a few years ago, I discovered that it doesn't take near as much water to make coffee as some people will have you believe. During my quest for the perfect cup of coffee, I found out that the grocery store brands of coffee off the shelves are only good if nothing else is available. So I start buying whole bean coffee and either grinding it at the store or at home.

What a pleasant surprise to experience the aroma of my coffee without even brewing any while grinding the coffee. The aroma brings an excited anticipation of what lies ahead. My favorite mixture of coffee to water is 7 heaping scoops of coffee to 10 cups of water. You can't brew this in a percolator as it will plug up the stem. Now I got my coffee brewing. I just have to be patient.

Back to my question of why I drink coffee. I learned a long time ago about caffeine deprived headaches. I thought people were kidding or exaggerating but I skipped my coffee in the morning and the mother of all headaches came upon me out of nowhere. I decided then I wouldn't miss my coffee. So I guess the second reason I drink coffee is because of the caffeine addiction I have.

I got to liking different coffees from around the world. Sumatra and Ethiopian are just a few of the coffees I truly enjoy the taste. I prefer the dark roasted coffee beans. I am looking for full bodied and kick me in the pants taste. French roast and espresso are really good. I was traveling several years ago working in England, Europe, and Norway. I can truly say without doubt, I never had a bad cup of coffee. It was always strong, full bodied, full of taste and definitely had my caffeine fix. There was nothing like sitting at a sidewalk cafe in Paris with my beautiful wife and enjoying a cup of espresso.

I guess after thinking about it, I just like the taste and flavor of coffee. As a side note, flavor coffee to me is for sissies. I don't care for chocolate, cream, or anything else added to my coffee. I want to enjoy the pure taste. I want to please my palate. By the way, weak coffee is a waster of perfectly good water. To sum it up, coffee is important to me. I am a caffeine addict. The most important reason I drink coffee is because I just like it.
