Giving Thanks to Coffee – Do Open, Contest Inside

Greetings friends,

The subject of coffee is not new to this blog. Legend has it that coffee was discovered by an Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi. It is said that he discovered it when he noticed that his goats had an abundance of energy after consuming the bright red berries from a certain plant. Afterwards he took some of the berries to a monk at a nearby monastery. The monk disapproved of the use of the berries and threw them into a fire. The berries smelled so good while they were roasting that they were raked from the embers, ground up, and dissolved in hot water. Thus, the first cup of coffee was born.

During some recent research on coffee I stumbled across a book called Coffee Gives Me Superpowers by Ryoko Iwata. You can follow her endeavors at her I Love Coffee blog and on her Facebook page.

A co-worker told me about a show called Dangerous Grounds. I also recently found out the shows Uncommon Grounds and The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince.

My coffee of choice is Death Wish Coffee Company. The original flavor is still my favorite. It is not uncommon for fans of the company to have mug collections. The company likes to offer seasonal limited edition mugs. Here is a picture of my collection:
