Yes… coffee isn’t exactly food, you are correct. Although it is linked to food in many ways as it is a beverage often consumed with food, particularly fluffy pastries, cakes, muffins and basically any breakfast item!
For me, coffee has been such a comforting drink. I grew up with parents and grandparents who would drink this dark comforting liquid. When I was younger, I mainly knew it for its aroma. That lovely coffee aroma. I remember the first few times I tried the taste of coffee, I marveled at how it did not taste the same as it smelled.
Then in high school, I started watching Gilmore Girls,
thanks to one of my best friends’ recommendations that I start watching the show. If you don’t know, the girls are Lorelai and Rory, a mother-daughter duo who are addicted to coffee. This added to the sense of comfort I have grown to associate with coffee.
Then with the end of high school and the beginning of the first phase of my university life (general studies at the local university), I continued to drink coffee regularly. Since then I have sometimes switched it up and had green tea or black tea regularly or some other drink as my regular beverage. Currently, I have been back to drinking coffee on a regular basis, it keeps me going with my busy university schedule interspersed with part-time work and personal goals.
Coffee just makes me feel so comforted. It is like a nice warm hug after a long day or a nice wake-me-up in the morning. Leave a comment on how you feel about coffee too.
