Coffee How I Love Thee!

Coffee is to a B&B what champagne is to a wedding!

"Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle of water." The Women's Petition Against Coffee, 1674

Coffee by Chad Mcdade
O sweet nectar!
Fresh brewed, liquid joy!
Oh, Java!
Hot, Steaming in my mug
At home or on the road
Beverage of choice
Hot water
Filtered thru ground beans
Blacker than the night
O sweet nectar!

Coffee by Nancy Browne
Revealing the night's 
Overload of dreams
The rugs plush softness
Moves to meet my feet
Out of bed
In slow motion
I move in circles
My eyes squint
My mouth dry and eager

The coffee is perking
For in the wee hours
Of day break
I cannot rely on fate
To help me focus
Besides, I absolutely 
Love the aroma and taste

I've decided
That I'm impressed by those
Who harvest the coffee beans
Little do they know
How much influence they have
Over early mornings
Over me and my life

from Poetry: Coffee
