I will have a cup of coffee at least three times each day you see, but I’m also quite obsessive in how I go about it. If I am sitting down to watch a film with a friend, or if I’m settling down to do some work, I just can not operate until I get my cuppa.

And if you’re still stuck in an office? Well I imagine that you utilize the stimulating power of coffee to help you really get there also.
But even when we are not changing the world, coffee is still a great social lubricant. Can the TV show ‘Friends’ even exist if it was not for coffee? There’s no better feeling than relaxing in a pleasant environment with a buddy whilst nursing a hot steaming cup of coffee. And when you’re by yourself? How about when you’re getting Bee Removal Melbourne FL? Then coffee is the ultimate comfort that won’t cause you to gain weight and that is incredibly soothing thanks to the heat and creaminess.
