Of tea and coffee. Get your heads on straight - I work, you can't drink while you work. Actually, that's a lie, I've done it before when putting in long hours. It helps, and I think the work has a special twist to it. But back to the topic, hot beverages - I love them.
I think tea cups should be big and coffee cups should be small and classic. My absolute favorite are glass coffee cups. Seriously, how do they not break with boiling liquid - it's like a science experiment every morning. Remember back in the day when I thought I liked science and went to school to become a doctor, yeah that was funny. Now I just write and work and hug people. I tricked everyone.

I drink it black, always. Well, that was a trick because once a couple of years ago I tried it with milk and sugar for 2 days. I quickly smartened up and went back to the straight up kind. That is unless it's a cappuccino, then obviously there's a milk product included.
|I miss the overabundance of cappuccinos in Italy|
And in case you need me to clear up any confusion, here are some of my favs:
- Folgers - ahaha tricked ya again! This isn't one of my favs.
- Cafe Du Monde - we order this New Orleans staple and always have cans in our house. It comes in ground format, and is the only acceptable ground coffee allowed in our little kitchen.
- African & South American Beans - you can find these at a lot of gourmet coffee roasters and they are worth the premium price.
- Fresh Market - for those times when we can't make it to a gourmet coffee retailer I depend on this specialty grocer. They sell beans, lots of them. I like variety.
