A Note on Happiness


I was sitting at my kitchen table catching up on the news with a cuppa java in hand when I experienced what can only be described as a coffee high. It’s as those endorphins came rushing in that I felt the inspiration to compile a little coffee post.

You see, coffee is my favourite beverage. I drink it daily. And none of  that freeze-dried instant or chicory nonsense. Only the best coffee ground from real beans will do for me. Mostly I drink it in the afternoons when I’m sitting in front of my computer contemplating life and whatever I’m working on for the moment, or on weekends while having a lazy lie-in. You’d think living in Japan that tea, specifically green tea, would be my thing. But the truth is I distinctly dislike green tea, and the only reason I drink it is because it makes for an interesting and healthy alternative to plain old water.

But really my beverage of choice is coffee. I prefer it hot with milk, but won’t say no to it black. No sugar. And if you can give it to me flavoured I’ll love you even more. Coconut flavoured, chocolate and macadamia flavoured to orange liqueur flavoured coffee, I love trying them all.

It’s one of those little things in life that  helps to make me happy. More precisely, it’s the intoxicating aroma and taste of coffee that give me my moment of bliss. We all need a bit of that everyday.

What’s your cup of coffee?
