'Angelina liked her men like her coffee - strong and dark!'
The Gingersnap Challenge was to create something about your favourite hot beverage - there was no doubt what mine is. Now, don't get me wrong, I like tea and drink lots of it, but there is no contest when coffee is involved - I LOVE COFFEE! And, I am a coffee snob; I like dark roast, strong coffee. I have my favourite coffee place in Vancouver, The Continental, an Italian cafe that really only sells coffee. It was in Vancouver long before Starbucks and has its own following. I get my Suprema or Peruvian Organic beans from them. My morning ritual is to grind my beans and I think I go into a Zen-like state as I pour boiling water through my cone filter...ahh, is it morning yet?
One of my Christmas gifts from Randy was a selection of Continental beans - the perfect gift for me!
