Why I love coffee


One of my friends asked me the other day, why I drink so much coffee. Only answer I could think of at the time was that I just love the taste, but after thinking about it, there’s a lot more to coffee than that.

Almost every working person gets up in the morning and the first thing on their mind is a cup of coffee. It is a popular beverage that we take to boost our energy and focus first thing in the day. The flavor and sweetness of coffee keeps our appetite up and that why many people can’t hesitate to ask for a cup of coffee. There are many types of coffee that one can take and thus many reasons for loving the coffee. Each one has its own style, taste and reasons to love it. Read on to know more about the reasons why people love coffee and the types they love.

The flavor

Made in its own special machine, espresso is a type of black coffee that is made by forcing hot vapor through dark roasted aromatic coffee beans. This is done at very high pressure so as to get all the flavors out of the beans and into the beverage. After preparation, a proper cup of espresso coffee should have a thick, golden layer of cream on its surface. A very interesting effect of this cream is that after you add sugar to the espresso, it floats a bit on the cream before sinking into the hot beverage. Simply fascinating! People love espresso due to its abundance of flavor. The process of making this type of coffee really extracts the flavor from the coffee beans. As such, the strong flavor is the reason one can’t keep off from a cup of coffee. Using real coffee beans is also the best way to get the flavour out. I happen to use the best coffee grinders to get the best flavor.

The luxury appeal

This wildly popular type of coffee is made of equal portions of steamed milk, espresso and the froth from milk. It is a luxurious type of coffee that is often taken with grated dark chocolate or unsweetened cocoa powder. Cappucinos are found in almost every coffee shop all over the world. This type of coffee is also very popular. People love this type of coffee due to its luxurious nature. Having the freedom to sprinkle cocoa or chocolate in your coffee and add to its character is a quality that expresses fine living. As such, many people love coffee due to its ability to act as a luxury drink in the life of its drinker.

Got a nasty insect fright

Spring is in the air and it is getting warmer outside. As you would expect, its also the time of year when insects start to appear again after the winter. I was out in the garden and noticed a bumble bee going in and out of a bird box, and took a look inside. Well, what I discovered was the beginnings of a bee’s nest, although quite small. I could quite clearly hear the buzz of the bees inside. How do you get rid of bees? Well it’s something I had never had to do before, and although I do a lot of DIY work around the house, this was a job for the experts – 1) I don’t like bees and 2) I didn’t want to get stung. If you have the same problem, I found some good advice at DeadPestz.com.

So I called in the experts, a bug exterminator company and they got rid of the bees for me thank goodness. Didn’t take too long and they were only there the afternoon. Just hope they don’t come back, but will need to keep a watch on the garden just in case.

Update: another problem I had this summer was a spider’s nest under my kitchen sink, but after a bit of reading, I think I got rid of them. A friend of mine told me about vinegar, but does any one know other way to  get rid of spiders?

Got flooded

I’ve had a bit of a disaster today, I woke up to my kitchen flooded with water. It seems that the dishwasher waste pipe got blocked and rainwater from outside made its way back up the pipe, overflowing and flooding the kitchen. A real bummer. Been busy the whole morning with towels trying to mop up all the water. Thankfully it was just rainwater and wasn’t dirty or smelled bad or anything like that. Now wondering what to do next. I may need to lift the linoleum flooring in the kitchen and throw it out, and leave the kitchen for a while to dry out. Will probably need to look up a flood clean-up company too.

Top ten blues guitarists

Who would you choose as the best blues guitarists of all time?

Well in my list their would have to be Joe Bonamassa as one of the best new players to emerge in the last few years. Bonamassa has borrowed from a number of players of the past and present and put his own mark on the blues and as a player is technically excellent. From some the older players, BB King would need to in there, Albert King and from the beginning of blues guitar, Robert Johnson. And although he is known for rock guitar, Jimi Hendrix was really a blues player who blended a number of styles and made it his own. And of course one of the biggest influences on Bonamassa was Stevie Ray Vaughan, of without which no blues hall of fame would be complete.

Heavy Metal top ten

I love heavy metal as well as other kinds of music, but thought I’d post this up. These things are pretty subjective, but this isn’t a bad list of a top ten. not sure about Venom though and a bit skewed towards thrash and speed metal guitar stuff! No Led Zeppelin??

Welcome to my new blog where I hope to write about stuff that interests me from a round the web. Hope to add more content soon.
