No, I'm not talking about the weather. I'm talking about the fog in my brain many mornings that is only satisfied by a good cup of coffee. Do you have that issue too?
Yesterday on my long list of things to do while in centro was to go by La Ventana and buy freshly ground coffee. I love the coffee from Chiapas. I also enjoy immensely the fragrance of freshly ground coffee. If it would taste as good as it smells in solid form, I think I would like to eat it!
Everywhere I went after buying the coffee, the fragrance followed me. Kinda like the comic strip Charlie Brown when the cloud followed Pig Pen. Ha. The fragrance actually made my stomach growl. That could be either because of the smell or the fact that I have no been on a diet for two weeks.........who knows?
After lunch of a god awful bunch of greens that I'm convinced was picked out of the fields surrounding San Miguel - nary a piece of lettuce - I reached home and set the bag of coffee in the kitchen. Anticipating Saturday morning coffee.
Instead, the WHOLE house now smells like Chiapan coffee. No floral fragrance here.
Just strong coffee. Delightful.
I've had my one cup this morning. The fog has lifted. I'm in rare form and ready to tackle and enjoy the day. How about you? Do you have to have a cup or two of coffee to get going in the morning?
