I like coffee. I just enjoy it, when it's brewed right. It's warm, smooth (hopefully), and is a nice comfort on a cool rainy day. Even on warm sunny ones too.

The caffeine kick is nice, although I try not to rely on it. I've actually been trying to cut back a little. Coffee isn't a substitute for sleep, but if used right it can help your alertness. I've had my best days having a little coffee after a good night's sleep.

It's about the ritual, too, odd as that may sound. The ritual of grinding the beans, measuring out the water, and brewing it in the Chemex. Something about that early (or later) in the morning is comforting.
