Styrofoam Cup Coffee

Not all meetings provide great drip coffee. Do not offend a guest by rejecting your host's hospitality. Note, though, I only accepted a half cup.

This was at a meeting in central Brockeimia, in a bright room in a building well over 100 years old. We discussed a deal that went beyond favorably for the Brockeim household. A few papers were signed, and we both were sure we received the better end of the arrangement.

I am not a fan of coffee in Styrofoam. The environmental issue is part of it. My personal concern is that the chemicals may infuse into the hot coffee, hurting flavor and health.

If you need 'em, buy 'em on Amazon.

Costa Rican with Love from T and E


Costa Rican. Black, with raw sugar. At my favorite table where T and E, whomever they are, professed their undying love through an engraving.

Illy Coffee Bar



Illy coffee bar... what I do not have at home. Espressos, and any other kind of coffee drink, are better with better beans and better equipment.

Sumatra and Columbia (whole beans), plus a triple espresso cappuccino. The book I brought along, "The Pearl Diver," I need to review for the Amazon Vine reviewer program.
