What would the world do without their coffee? In a book I am writing, “Sunday Meetin’ Time, my farmer/preacher tells his wife, Mama, that he knows why God invented coffee. She says, “Why?” And he says to keep the farmers going for sixteen hours a day. A lot of “Wall Street” types would agree with that as well.
Coffee drinkers have forever depended upon coffee for the “boost” and energy that it provides. Can’t you just see the old cowboys huddling around the open campfire – with their old fashioned pot sitting on an open fire?
When the new electric percolator came along with the bubble on the top, everyone thought, “Wow!” They would be amazed at those new fangled single serve coffee makers of today.
Little, in those olden days, did anyone ever perceive how coffee consumption, marketing and varieties would ever top that? Yahoo Finance reports that as of September 28, 2014, Starbucks reported $16,447,800 in total revenue; with only a net income of $2,068,100.
The merits of coffee drinking have been on the up-and down medical charts for years. First, too much coffee was really bad for you; and then all of a sudden it was good for your heart. And now they have settled for coffee in moderation. And coffee is not recommended for those with nervous conditions, sleeplessness, and irregular heart rate.
No one can deny that regular coffee is not a stimulant. It picks you up and gives you a false sense of energy.
There was a time when restaurants gave coffee and tea away for free with your meal and during the depression people would see beggars on the streets asking, “Buddy can you spare a dime for a cup of “Joe?”
There are many slang names for coffee and here are a few more:
Mud, Java, Brew, Cuppa, Go Juice, Jitter Juice. High Octane, Wakey Juice, Morning Jolt, Liquid Energy, Caffeine Infusion, Leaded and Unleaded. More slang names:
Coffee drinkers are particular how they drink their coffee – and these days not too particular how much they pay for it up to $5.00 or more a cup. When coffee was once given free, little did anyone ever think that entire shops and companies would be based on the sale of a cup of coffee.
Today the added health warnings are not as much about the coffee; but what you put into that cup. Coffee additives, creamers, etc. are mostly just that … if they are not fresh dairy cream. There are warnings about the chemicals used in the powered creamers that have a shelf life of “forever.” Many have an abundance of sugar and then there are those who already take a little coffee with their sugar in the cup.
