Love At First Sip…

The best part of waking up besides knowing you are not dead is that first cup of coffee.

Setting the scene…it is the wee hours of the morning when I wake around 3am, stretch and tip toe into the kitchen to brew my first cup.

After coming to the realization that my Nespresso machine was not going to meet my COVID coffee needs, I did a deep, costly dive into coffee brands.

Enticingly, the evocative aroma wafts throughout the kitchen.

In Coronaville it is all about unmasking the little, meaningful moments that perk up your day and get you through the Groundhog Days of our Lives.
