Coffee: Solace in a Bottle

Even if you aren't an avid coffee drinker, you too have the privilege of going on a "coffee break" to do whatever you want, whether it's to buy a pack of gum, or to call a friend, etc.

So yes, coffee is more than a drink. It is solace in a bottle. It allows us to feel human again instead of a monkey trapped in a concrete building all day long. It's the last vestige of freedom during the working hours of 9-5, which has been demarcated by the powers that be to be when we are all drones working to make another person wealthier while we get older.

The only time we have to ourselves is on the weekends and 2 measly weeks out of the year to spend with our families and friends. That is of course if work doesn't get in the way.

But I digress, the bottom line is, we should be grateful that we have these "coffee breaks"- almost like a magical time when we can shut off the world and day dream like when we were in elementary school.

The next time you go buy coffee hopefully you will see it in a different light. It's much more than just a drink to quench your thirst. If you were thirsty you could always get any variety of drink ranging from water, to soda, to tea, or juice. Coffee holds a special place in the food/beverage chain. Shouldn't you be taking care of your coffee?
