I’ve always enjoyed coffee. In fact, I’ve even experimented with it when I was like 10 years old! I mixed cocoa with coffee thinking I had created the something magnificent when in fact, mocha was already in existence!
I’ve also worked with a German professor and a Russian post-doc who make their coffee extra punchy! However, since starting to work, I’ve gotten used to the thinner coffee. Still, I drink about 2 cups a day! So I’ve begun for myself a campaign to cut off the amount. Starting yesterday, I decided to drink 2x 2/3 cups (= 1 1/3 cups). After few more weeks, I will just be down to 1 cup a day. I already try not to drink it when I can, make my body not get used to patterns.
That smell and aroma… mmm… you see, I used to drink about 4 cups a week! However, that was before having kids… and it became just necessity. As they sleep better, I hope to go back to that… Here’s to your… um… alertness! 😛
