I can’t remember a time I didn’t have a coffee obsession. Mine started very young, maybe 13 or 14? I loved coffee with a slice of apple pie for breakfast. Yeah, probably not the healthiest choice and my breakfast choices have changed drastically since then. Still remains my adoration for coffee. In fact, my day cannot possibly start without a mug of hot coffee in front of me. Apparently I have passed that obsession along to my own kids and coffee is almost a staple in college, so not surprising they are drinking more of it now.
When I was that age, I had to wait for water to boil and often had to use powdered or coffee granules when I wasn’t near my coffee maker. Or I had to spend money and go purchase it out elsewhere.
