For The Love Of Coffee

Coffee… Ah! The most precious memories of my life are associated with coffee. It was two years back. I was no less than a perfect nerd with huge spectacles on my small face, messy hair and chubby appearance. It was in the month of May. Cupid had finally found me!

He was chubby too and nerdy as well. Nerdier than me too! We had known each other for months now. And one fine day, he said he likes me a lot and wants to spend his life with me. I was so overwhelmed with joy at that moment that I did not know whether to laugh or cry. He took me out on a formal date the next day to Barista. We were supposed to meet at 4:30 in the evening.

He reached Barista on time; in fact, seven minutes before time as he told me later. I was half an hour late. I might be nerdy and not that into grooming myself but, every girl wants to look her best for her man, the man of her dreams. Plus I was extremely nervous too. Hence, I specially took quite some time that day to dress up properly and do my hair. I apologized for being late the moment I reached. As I entered the cafe, his face lit up. I had never seen him that happier before. And the first smell that greets you on entering a cafe is the smell of coffee beans.



The smell of coffee, his eyes on mine, his ‘over-happy’ face are still imprinted in my memory. It seems just like yesterday.

So that is the story of my love. The aroma of coffee provided the perfect ambience for romance.

Now whenever I have coffee, I am transported back to that day. The aroma of the coffee beans takes me on a beautiful journey in the past. It is like we have fallen for each other as well the aroma of coffee. We start our days with a cup of coffee in the morning almost regularly after that splendid date. The whiff of coffee reminds us about each other, the love we share and the things we like about each other. A perfect start to any day, I would say.


As Marcia Carrington says -
A morning coffee is my favourite way of starting the day, settling the nerves so that they don’t later fray.
