So we haven’t blogged in some time but I am excited to start up again! My name is Isabella and I’ve been working at ABC since February however, coffee has been my career for the past 10 years. So lets get this show on the road.
As the holidays bulldoze their way over us, I have been spending a lot of time thinking about family. Most of us have one whether it be traditional or a group of closely knit friends that you can’t live without. With all of this family togetherness the likelihood for stress actually increases. Strange right? Not really. With such a wide variety of personalities all shoved under he same roof with the added pressure of shopping for the perfect gift and crazy Uncle….(you all know I’m talking about), its hard for there not to be some sort of situation. What can prevent this insanity for transpiring? Good question cause I have the perfect answer.
COFFEE! What, coffee? Ridiculous you say. Well the truth of the matter is that coffee has been a universal connector for thousands of years. An old Turkish proverb is said “Coffee and tobacco are complete repose.” Although you can probably live without the tobacco I can’t think of any good reason to deny yourself the coffee. Whether you escape the house for a few minutes of “repose” to get a cup by yourself or you pick up a pound of freshly roasted French Roast to accompany your holiday meal or you bring the whole family in with you for a break from Shopping Wars, take that moment to cherish these connections. Even if you don’t like the way coffee tastes, I’m sure your Grandpa does. We have so few opportunities to have a real face to face conversation these days. Ben Franklin knows best…”A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.”
Celebrate those fleeting moments with a cup of coffee, some warm conversation, and America’s Best Coffee.
