Topic of the Week!!!

Tell us how you started drinking coffee. Were you in high school or college and making it through all nighters? Did you get it from a family member? What drives your love of the bean?

I started drinking coffee in college. Not the usual way, not to stay up for all night study sessions. When my father would pick me up for holidays or other breaks in Montclair, we would take a detour into Jersey City. We would visit my aunt sometimes, but usually we would travel into a Hispanic neighborhood so he could buy his favorite cigars. We'd then stop into a coffee shop and he would order me a cafe con leche. It was yummy. I was hooked.
