When did you first start drinking coffee? What age were you? Was it about the caffeine, or do you love the taste and smell? Tell us how your passion began!
Coffee was always ingrained in my life growing up. I grew up in and around Seattle for my first 20 years. My parents probably have some cute stories about me and coffee, but I didn't actually start drinking coffee until I was in high school. I think I was a junior when I was actually drinking steadily. I love the smell of the brewing coffee, it will always bring up a million cozy memories for me. I can't think of a family household I have spent time in that didn't have a coffee pot! Getting back to the coffee...taste and caffeine are about 50/50 for me. I drink my coffee frou-frou. I love lattes and even the processed stuff you get a QuikTrip! (nifty gas station) My fav is when I take the time to pull out my espresso machine at home and make them myself. Mmmm... lol! Even though I am unable to drink coffee now, I am looking forward to when I can indulge in a latte soon! (Yep, pregnant!) I will miss out on all the yummy holiday flavors at the latte stand in town, but thank goodness for chai and hot cocoa!
