COFFEE is a universal perk and a BILLION DOLLAR Industry

especially if you include all the Coffee Making gadgets that

come with it. The best Countries for Perfect Coffee every time

are Holland & Italy !  In the USA if you ask for a COFFEE your

server has to go through the whole list (same with EGGS !).

Quicker just to ask for an ESPRESSO & SUNNY SIDE UP ! Also

in the USA the *Bottomless Cup* means just that and My Friend

JACK ~ drank SEVEN & ONE TO TAKE in McDONALDS in Denver

Colorado.  BILL BRYSON said all the Coffee in the US is now

STARBUCKS which means you can get a GOOD cup of Coffee

anywhere but nowhere can you get a Great Cup of Coffee  🧡🧡🧡

      Mmmmm, another piece about coffee. I usually drink mine black. However, sometimes I'll have a white chocolate mocha. My favorite coffee comes from Colombia, Ethiopia, and Kenya.
      Great piece
      Coffee is a true gift.
      Persistence is key

        THANKS DINO ~ BRIAN HERE ~ Yes CAFE NEGRO (NOIRE) does retain all the flavour and I find when Im in the USA I can drink El Cafe Columbiano ~ Black & without Sugar becaus it is weaker than in the UK. That way one gets the real Coffee Flavour. My sister works in a Dellicatessen as a Grinder & a Barrista and she assured me that that taste of a Sugerless Black Coffee does reflect its Country of Origin. When she brings me beans or ground coffee she always states Country of Origin. Jamaica Blue Mountain is the BEST ! Our Poem tomorrow is all about TEA ~ where Country of Origin is paramount. Please check.
        Blessings & LOVE in the LORD

        Good write but I will argue with you on the taste of Americano - Gods nectar!

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Thanks for your comment UNCLE ANDY ! I drink Americano (which is generally served~ de rigeur ~ in Fast Food Restaurants in the US & UK) without milk or sugar ~ and it has (to my pallet a slightly metallic taste ~ like licking mechano !) with a sweetner it is OK. I also like liquer ( especially BAILLYS) Coffee !
          Blessings & Many Perks to You & Joyce

          Thanks so much for outlining the different coffees - I have learnt much from your sonnet today dear duo - -- - it is a drink that when taken in moderation has many health benefits - an informative read and thank you for sharing it.......

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            THANKS FAY ~ Pleased you enjoyed it and found it informative ! My SISTER runs a Coffee Shop and she directed me to the poster which she thought could be encpsulated into a POEM to give me a TRILOGY of COCOA ~ COFFEE ~ TEA. Tea tomorrow please check ! Because of the high CAFFEINE content ~ FOUR CUPS max per day. Of course you can get DECAF COFFEE which is a bit like drinking non-alcoholic wine !
            BLESSINGS & LOVE

            Good Write Not a great advocate of coffee I use little packets for mine. Perhaps after reading your observations I should branch out a little Thank you

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Sorry MOORDY ~ Weve sent our REPLY as a comment ~ please check ~ YOURS A & B !

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Thanks MOORDY ~ The Poem is essentially about the different styles of serving Coffee in the CUP ! It focuses on the ratio *Coffee disolved in water* to added water ~ milk ~ cream ~ ice cream etc. The initial *Coffee dissolved in water* can of course come from ~ a little packet ~ a jar ~ a bottle (CAMP) ~ beans (ground) or grains etc. Hope thats clear !
              Blessings & Peace
              Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

            • Suresh

              Gave up coffee three decades ago, now during mild tea.

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                AMEN SURESH ! Please check our POEM today and you will see you made the right choice ! Coffee is an adiction ~ TEA is a cure all !
                BLESSINGS & FINE CUPPA CHAR 3 times a DAY

                I'm afraid I'm not a lover of the various coffees served in modern coffee houses - I much prefer the only proper way to serve coffee - in a cafetiere (natural infusion - not forced through a machine) - unadulterated with the full flavour of the original bean. Talking of beans I do like the true mocha coffee - from Lebanon - a variety of the arabica bean. I avoid places like Costas - go in and ask what coffees they have and all they know are the methods of preparation - they haven't a clue where the beans come from or what variety they are. Anyway a fine write and sorry for the late comment.

                • ANGELA & BRIAN

                  Thanks UNCLE MIKE ~ It is Thursday always a day for a full comment ! YES YES YES ! We always use a CAFETIERE (good word) and fresh ground COFFEE (Jamacia Blue Mountain is our fave !). We do buy beans & grind ! At College we only charge Seniors 50p for CAFETIERE COFFEE and still make a SMALL PROFIT ~ I (BRIAN) object to paying £3 for an inferior Cup of Coffee with a Cream Heart on top. Some BARRISTAS (like my Sisiter) do know their beans but most dont. In my post today on *GODS own CUPPA ~ TEA* the emphasis is on the TEA BUSH so it is much more specific originwise than Coffee. If you book Afternoon Tea in a Decent (UK) Hotel (£25+) They bring you the leaf to scent & savour before they BREW UP ~ AMEN
                  Blessings ~ Peace & Joy
