I'm Back on Coffee...

Maybe it's because I recently re-joined the ranks of the nine to fivers, or maybe it's because there's a Bridgehead five minutes away from my humble abode -- whatever the reason, I'm back to drinking coffee.
I still drink tea way more than coffee and I have definitely cut back on coffee consumption since I first started this no-coffee experiment, but nonetheless, I'm back to imbibing the chocolatey nectar. I think it might be the taste that beckoned me back. It was either that or the full pot of coffee that's ready every morning as I enter the lunchroom at work to put my salad in the fridge.
I think my first housewarming gift to my new workplace will definitely be some Bridgehead coffee, not that the coffee they serve doesn't taste good, but it's that other type of coffee that Raj Patel alluded to...
I still believe it's a better practice to drink more tea than coffee and I must say, I am more alert in the mornings now that I don't need a coffee to start my day. However, after a tasty dinner or at a meeting between friends or colleagues, I must admit it's nice to have a steaming cup of joe.
So raise your espresso cups and join me in a toast to balance in beverage consumption and the smooth, rich taste of a beautiful, organic, fairly traded cup of coffee.
