Good Morning Honey :)

This post is inspired by 2 things: 

- My first cup of coffee at work every morning.
Coffee a magical substance that turns "leave me alone or die" into, "good morning honey!" - Aunty Acid

I am a big time tea lover but I started having coffee ever since the tea made at my work place didn't taste so good. Off course it was being made in the microwave & not on the stove like at home. Tea has to be cooked properly, there's a recipe that has to be followed, it takes time for the essence to really show up to make it taste good. That doesn't happen when you make it in a microwave hence coffee. Instead of writing a paragraph on coffee  let me share some interesting facts that I read over the internet lately.
