During University one of my many part time jobs to see me through school was as a Barista. I loved working the beautiful old espresso machine and took delight and care in making delicious lattes and drinks. It’s here that I really discovered a love for coffee after years of subsiding on substandard instant grinds, which was all there was to hand in the Financial office I worked in at the time. I was young, I didn’t know any better and had been raised a tea drinker anyway. I’m thankful though to have learned otherwise.
Coffee culture is fascinating, and I love the idea of staying up all night in a cafe just drinking coffee, reading, writing and watching the world go by. I’m lucky to live in a city that has a thriving coffee scene.
It’s Monday, and cold and blustery out today. I would love to be in a coffee shop right now, but will have to be happy with a large cup of coffee at my desk instead. This edition of Covet is brought to you care of my caffeine vice.
