I love my morning coffee. Today we are going away for a couple days for our wedding anniversary. We always go to the same B&B every year, same cottage every year. And, every year, I think they serve the most delicious coffee with breakfast.
A few times, I have ended up bringing some home but I am always disappointed because it doesn’t seem to taste the same. It is ok, but I wouldn’t seek it out. I realize that when I am there, I am probably feeling happier and more relaxed than on a hectic work day – is that making the coffee taste better? I wouldn’t say that coffee on a day off tastes better than coffee on a work day , so it doesn’t feel as if it is work/stress related. Could it be the physical location? Does that affect how the coffee tastes? How about your enjoyment of the particular coffee? I started out thinking about countryside vs suburbia or with a crowd vs solo, but maybe even the living room vs the kitchen…? What do you think – Does where you enjoy a cup of coffee affect how you enjoy that coffee?
