Have you ever wondered why I love coffee so much? Like, how is it even possible to love coffee so much? Think about that first taste of ice cream, or the fresh open jar of peanut butter or a crisp fall day. National Coffee Day is that one day coffee drinkers can sip a little bit more and share their love of coffee with others.
National Coffee Day also allows us to think about other reasons why we love coffee so much.
The Aroma ~ There is no smell I love waking up to more than fresh brewed coffee.
The Taste ~ I have always loved the taste of coffee – it was never something I had to acquire the taste for or get used to.
It Gives Me Energy Somedays coffee really is the only thing that can get me up and feeling like I can accomplish my dreams and goals.
It Helps Me Relax Believe it or not, coffee helps me relax. Like I have mentioned before, from its scent to its taste, it’s overall and inviting experience. Because coffee is so inviting. I think it’s just natural for me that I feel comforted and at ease when I can sit back and enjoy a cup.
It’s Conversational This has become a trend in today’s culture and going on coffee dates, meeting up for coffee, etc. Unlike most trends, this is actually a good trend that should stay.
It is a reason to celebrate. You have a way to sit back and sip. But you can also share that with someone too!
