Before my feet hit the floor every morning, I am anticipating my first java jolt of the day. During the week, I stop for my liquid lightning at Tim Hortons on Maple Road. You’ve probably tooted your horn at me as I perilously perch on the edge of the drive-thru entrance anxiously awaiting the steaming, tasty Cup o’ Joe. Hubby usually brews up a pot of Tim goodness on the weekend at home and, while it is satisfying, it never seems to taste quite as good as the coffee at Tim’s.
For those of us who love our brew, it seems we don’t vary in our preferences. I take my coffee black and love a good, robust strong flavor.
Not only does my favorite drink taste good and give us coffee lovers a boost, it also provides us with some documented health benefits. According to the Medical Post, studies indicate that drinking coffee can prolong lives, and impact favorably ailments such as Parkinson’s, heart disease, risk of stroke, and even help prevent skin cancer!
