I'd probably have to say that it began as a love for the community, atmosphere and converstations that derived from sitting down with a cup of coffee. Now I'd have to admit that it is more of a personal love for the taste and the depth that goes into producing the art.
My cup of straight esspresso is my cigarrete. It calms me down, and lets me think. It's hard to explain, I don't do it for the caffeine anymore since it hardly does anything to me at this point, but I just get this indescribable peace.
