Dang, that sounded a little skeevy and dealer-esque. You know, like, “Hey little girl/boy. Want some coffee?”
But, seriously. Want some coffee? Or at least a line on something new to add to your addiction? Or as a perfect gift for any coffee
addict lover you know?
I see you nodding.
First some facts, Jack.
Fun Time Coffee Facts:
* Coffee contains antioxidants, which helps prevent free radicals from damaging cells. One study found that a typical servicing (approximately 9 oz) of coffee contains more antioxidants than a serving of grape juice, blueberries, raspberries, or oranges.
* Some Catholics urged Pope Clement VII (1478 – 1534) to ban coffee, calling it “devil’s beverage”. After tasting the beverage, the Pope is said to have remarked that the drink was “… so delicious that it would be a sin to let only misbelievers drink it.”
While coffee used to have a bad name, scientisty types started looking deeper and wouldn’t you know it, in moderation, coffee is good for you! Antioxidants, improved athletic performance, and sharper thinking are great reasons to drink more coffee. Or start drinking. Come on, you know you want some.
Some folks balk at the taste. I get that; I can’t drink it black. I always used to tell people to try a cup of mine because I used so much sugar and actual full-fat cream that it tasted like candy. These days, I’ve toned it down to a bit of sugar and a bit of half-and-half. Still tasty, yet won’t kill me. #winning
