If you have read my blog before you know that I love coffee and love coffee shops. My husband says that I am addicted to the stuff but now I am convinced that he is very, very wrong. My demonstration this weekend centered around my favorite little black drink with a little cream and sugar; I even got to do two of them both Saturday and Sunday! People are so happy when they receive free coffee while being chatty and friendly at the same time. I learn new facts and meet interesting people. Of course I meet some strange ones as well. My first was for Kicking Horse, an organic, fair trade company based in British Columbia that uses sustainable growing practices (shade grown coffee). I got a lot of comments that it was "expensive" ($9 for 12 oz. with the coupon) but it tastes so good. In fact I plan on buying some.

As for me, I drink between 1-2 cups a day but not always. If I drink too much I get sick! Drinking coffee is not about getting my "fix" on or quenching my "thirst" but about pleasure and a warm fuzzy feeling especially on rainy, winter days. It is about creating new combinations and flavors. Coffee is about socializing and enjoying good company!
So now I am even more convinced about cutting out my Starbucks and encouraged that I have come so far!
Let me know your thoughts!
