    Coffee Beans
    by Rebekah Willhite

    It all begins
    with a teddy bear, a stuffed lion, and
    an Oregon State beaver
    having a coffee date
    while watching Sesame Street.
    We move onto
    hot chocolate with whipped cream
    and don’t forget the sprinkles.
    At 16 we hit the drive-thru
    “I’d like a mocha frappuccino with non-fat caramel, whole milk
    Mexican sweet chocolate, no whip, and two straws”
    We simplify in college
    because our brains are too full of
    details from the battle of Iwo Jima.
    So, we drink it plain and black
    but from organic beans
    and a re-usable cup.
    We are broke in our 20’s
    and drink whatever is on sale;
    Folgers, Yuban or MJB.
    At some point we begin to drink
    coffee from pots with spouts.
    They hide in the corner
    at all of life’s big events.
    Like the coffee in Styrofoam cup
    offered to a granddaughter
    visiting her grandfather
    who no longer knows her name.
    In our thirties,
    we settle into the familiar pot of understanding
    which spans many decades
    with a cup decorated by a child,
    then a grandchild
    soon to be packed up
    and moved with our other treasures
    to a place that only serves

    Honestly speaking, I'm really fond of drinking coffee and I can't even imagine my life without this beverage because it helps me to be more energy. So thanks a lot for sharing this post!

      Coffee really plays a significant role in life of many people inlcuding me, so thanks for uploading information about quality coffee. By the way, I don't like coffee houses so much, I prefer to get coffee at home instead. Consequently, I'm willing to share with you these details about incomparable dcc-3000 that keeps coffee and cleans itself. I started to use it about a month ago and now I get extremely quality and good energy beverage before work every day. I bet you'll definitely find this source and coffee machine useful for yourself!
