I promised once, in a previous posting, to invent an IV drip of coffee...I write to you today to inform you that the hot coffee would burn your veins and most likely lead to your death, resulting in the non invention of this, what I thought would be, a most wonderful device.

Why don't you just cool it you may ask? And I would present you with this...Would you warm your delicious mouth watering Mich light? Absolutely not.

Now awesomely enough in our American culture we have many options to retrieve this wonderful brewed drink prepared from the little roasted seeds of the coffee plant. And oh how there are so many ways to have this tasty energy filled beverage. Many in which I can not pronounce or slightly mumble out..Normally the "barista" (coffee-house server) understands what I mean... Like I'm sure I'm not the only one that cannot pronouce, *cafe breve.

There are lattes, flat whites, chilled or blended (which include milk and some sort of sugar), americanos, cappuccinos, espressos, espresso macchiato, espresso con pana, and mochas.

Overwhelmed? Welcome to the world of fancy coffee drinks.

Now, I'm a hot black coffee drinker. But the genius coffee connoisseurs of the world went ahead and started flavouring straight up black coffee. I know, I know... I am not lying and this topic is nothing I would fib about.

I take coffee and my drinking it very seriously. Where I work, there is this little brilliant coffee stand nicely placed in the corner just before the stairs to the GI clinic, called Jazzmans. It is there every morning, well M-F anyways, that I begin my day. And yes, they know me. I get a medium coffee, and I have my cute little Jazzmans card punched ( to get a free one of course!), and then deliberate with my choices. Is it a cinnamon delight sort of day ? This day would normally consist of a pretty much full clinic and possible stressors to arise. Or is it a creme brulee kinda day? This day would be pretty laid back, but could possibly consist of a large amount of phone calls and/or messages. Now, when I haven't gotten much sleep, or I'm a bit on edge, I go straight for the gold. Iced carmel latte, skim milk and sugar free syrup.

If you don't normally drink coffee but are always in a crappy mood and tired, just go on and try it. The world will be a better place with you "on" coffee. The glorious caffeine gods will open the gates to your new world of happiness and bliss. Take this recommendation from a coffee professional.

With that the only thing left to say then is, You are Welcome.

*Cafe Breve-espresso,milk foam, steamed half and half ( go ahead and add a flavor shot if you want)

Shout out to Kathy for helping me pick a topic!
