  1. I now need a post from you about coffee. How do you take it? What’s your favorite brand? Is there a cafe nearby you always visit? If you could spend any amount of money, what coffee drink would you get and where can you get it? What place would you want to visit to learn more about the growing and making of coffee?

    I’ll be waiting.
