Coffee gives you a legal shot of energy when your eyelids are feeling down. Coffee kills time when you’re washed ashore on the streets of London. (Coffee can even help rainstorms disappear.) Coffee is something to dangle your lips in when conversation is scarce. Coffee is a good place to take a new friend. (Coffee is an excuse to stay half an hour longer). Acquaintances end on the doorstep but friendships begin with a coffee. Coffee can be appreciated by all generations. Coffee is a multilingual, multi-racial, liquid Esperanto. Yes. There’s something quite religious about coffee.
