Coffee, and Other Things I Love
I love coffee. Dark, hot, swirling liquid. It can be black, creamy, sweet, flavored. I rarely met a cup I couldn't enjoy. We have a local coffee house that I love to visit. It's called "The Library Coffee House" and is filled with local arts and crafts to purchase, homemade pastries and meals, and shelves filled with books. The books are not for sale, they are to read while you enjoy your coffee. You select a book and before you leave, you place it on a special reserved shelf to pick up and read the next time. It's a way to draw you back for another visit.
I don't need the draw of the book to get me back. The coffee is superb. My favorite is a vanilla latte. Simple, smooth, slightly sweet. People sit alone reading in a cushy chair or sofa, or they gather in little groups around tables for conversation. The coffee house has guest singers and musicians on several evenings. Some I know and love (Laurie Roberts is one of those, and my niece Nicole used to perform there), and some are new to me.
The atmophere is the draw. Some of my favorite things all gathered together under one roof. Really excellant coffee, books, music, conversation, art... what more could I ask for?
