a cup in hand
Posted by inzomaniac on June 19, 2008
Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip and low comedy. Coffee is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so. From roadside mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat. ~Author Unknown
just love the simple yet elegant aroma of a cup of coffee… simply, it brightens my day and energize my body for the day’s work… i would never trade nescafe coffee over any other brand of coffee…
i can consume at least 3 cups of it in a day… try it…
- The name coffee comes from the Arabic word qahwah, meaning wine, and not from the town of Kaffa, in Ethiopia (Abyssinia), as many writers have supposed.
- There are twenty-four steps in the “Coffee Process”.
- The most severe punishment for drinking coffee was being sewn into a leather bag and tossed alive into the sea.
- Pope Clement VIII was the first to baptize coffee and make it a true Christian beverage.
Even though the caffeine in coffee keeps you alert while you are awake, it doesn’t always keep you from falling asleep when you are dead tired. Many people can drink several cups of coffee before bed and still fall asleep with no trouble at all. Others can’t fall asleep after drinking even one cup of coffee before bedtime.
Though coffee is known for keeping you awake and alert, it can also cause a peaceful state of mind. A peaceful state of mind relaxes you, allowing you to fall asleep. It seems to depend on whether your body wants to fall asleep or stay awake. Even the ideas in a person’s head seem to be a part of whether you sleep or stay awake. If people want to stay awake, they drink coffee labeled regular (coffee with caffeine). If people do not like the effects of caffeine or if they plan on going to sleep soon, they drink coffee labeled decaffeinated which means there is no caffeine in the coffee.
