To justify my coffee addiction, I started taking pictures, and referring to coffee dates as “work” and it’s been a pretty reliable scheme. A few years ago, I even started a coffee blog, Coffee|Served Daily, where I collected and curated 1000 cups of coffee with over 100 contributors from all over the world. Though that experience did give me moments of wishing I had done 1000 glasses of wine instead, I still love my coffee, and I am still taking pictures of it. Though I have dropped the “work” excuse, and am simply referring to it as “necessary for life.”

“I don’t know where my ideas come from. I will admit, however, that one key ingredient is caffeine. I get a couple cups of coffee into me and weird things just start to happen.” ― Gary Larson
