Brewed Bliss: America’s Unwavering Love Affair with Coffee

Long before the water cooler, there was coffee. It’s America’s favorite drink. We crave it, love it, drink it.

Coffee brings us together.

We visit coffee shops, where folks are kind.

We fill our cups with the dark, buzzing elixir that fuels our soul and ignites our creativity.

It’s something shared.

For me, coffee was the beverage brewed in my 30s while visiting Charlotte the Great at the table. We both like our cut HOT. Sometimes our pot welcomed someone new. Regardless, our cup of coffee isn’t as simple as a morning drink. It is all the complexities of our love.

It is an experience. That warm cup in your hands. The smell that wafts through the air fills the nostrils and hugs your soul. The beautiful, dark, deep color of fresh-brewed coffee is like artwork to the eyes.

We walk with it.

We sit with it.

Then there’s the feel of the brew on your tongue, in your mouth, and the delicious, smooth taste that obliges with every sip.

Coffee is also socially connected to food. For example, we pair coffee with dessert, coffee cake, or that morning powdered doughnut.

The easiest way to remember coffee-pairing is that the richer and more indulgent the dessert (like chocolate, praline or peanut butter flavoring), the darker the roast.
