Coffee, Cocoa & Melting Snowmen

  That scent of coffee is mixed with a cocoa smell this morning. It is the perfect time of year to mix a little hot chocolate into the coffee.

The hot liquid rolls through my mouth punctuating its presences with a sharp pungent taste that makes that first sip shocking. I’m not interesting in noticing any of the finer features in my mug today because I am feeling a little bitter this morning. One of my favourite coffee mugs has a rather long crack… Continue reading Coffee & Inevitability
