Can you believe what is happening with our good old plain strong black coffee? There are so many kinds of different coffee that I don’t even know how many kinds do exist and how in the world did we get such a variety of brews?

Now, I admit, I am a coffee lover and I probably had coffee in my baby bottle. Yes, I have been a coffee drinker almost all of my life. Some people jokingly tell me that is why I am so short.

I remember my Grandma used a coffee which was called Eight O’Clock. She had a coffee pot which sat on top of her old cook stove and was always ready to drink. I was allowed to drink coffee in the mornings, a practice I still do today. I mean, I cannot function without my morning coffee.
