I didn’t drink coffee for the first 21 years of my life, so needless to say, I’m making up for lost time!
In fact, I didn’t even know how to operate a coffee pot until one of my first jobs – at a doctor’s office – where I proudly held the position of Medical Records Wizard/General Errand Girl/Lunch Fetcher/Coffee Maker. While making coffee was a nice break from operating the copy machine, my first attempt was a bit of a disaster! Since as my parents never drank coffee (we didn’t even own a coffee pot…) I had no idea what the coffee-to-water ratio should be and ended up brewing what can only be described as a big pot of super strong espresso! Needless to say, with all that caffeine, I don’t think anyone slept for 48 hours after drinking a cup of Adrienne’s Special Blend.
Since then, I’ve refined by coffee-related skills a bit, and have enjoyed sampling coffee in cute little coffee shops from Fayetteville, North Carolina to Lawrence, Kansas. And while I love any excuse to camp out with my laptop and a pair of headphones, sometimes I’m in a hurry (okay – running late) and only have time for a quick drive-through run.
