Coffee, my favorite drink

      No Comments on Coffee, my favorite drink

I have always loved coffee, ever since I was a little girl.   My grandmother on my mother’s side would often have just a little bit of coffee left in her cup after breakfast was over and she would always let me drink that little bit.  When I was in high school, I started buying instant coffee since my mom didn’t ever drink coffee.  Then I was introduced to brewed coffee and I thought I was in heaven.  When Dunkin Donuts came to our town it was all over for me.  Over the years I have worried about drinking too much coffee and when I was around twenty seven I developed fibroid systs.  I was advised to quit drinking regular coffee and switch to decaf.  I tried for a few weeks, but I found that I just didn’t like drinking decaf by itself.  So, I started mixing my coffee 1/2 regular and 1/2 decaf and that is how I drink it today.  I have become a lot more discerning in my tastes though, or I have become a “coffee snob” as one of my new friends calls me.  I like good coffee, I will admit it.  I have found the older I get, though, sometimes coffee can be a little acidic and the more you drink it, the more your stomach kind of complains.  Recently I found a new brand of coffee that I really love.  I have been drinking it for a couple of weeks now and I have not noticed it bothering my stomach at all.  It is called Simpatico Low Acid coffee.  I was a little skeptical when I bought it, but I really wanted to check it out.  They have a dark roast and a regular roast as well as ground or whole bean coffee, my favorite is the regular dark roast mixed with the decaf medium roast.   Oh, and just in case you’re wondering if drinking coffee is bad for you, they’ve done some studies recently that show that coffee may actually be good for you.  Thank God, because quitting just doesn’t seem to be on my radar at all!
