Over a cupa’ Coffee…



“Coffee” captivates me, the word itself sends shots of enchantment down my spine. It’s aroma lures me into worlds of euphoria that I cannot resist! It’s richness drives the sane me insane!

Head to any coffee shop down the street and catch a glimpse of people sipping their coffees. Beautiful, old & young, splendid, smiles & tears, overwhelming, laughs & fights, marvellous, seriousness & laziness, fascinating, pens & papers, magnificent, laptops & cameras, breathtaking.. See how they embrace their cups between their bare hands unwilling to let go, despite the heat their cups emit! A glorious scene..  

Friends meet for the first time and begin to unfold the mysteries of each others’ lives over a cup of coffee

Lovers, even old ones, revitalise their passion, over a cup of coffee

Businesses flourish over a cup of coffee

Families re-unite over a cup of coffee

I love everything about coffee but certainly not it’s taste! Yet, I still sip it with passion for all the hullabaloo it conducts onto me…

    Oh what a glorious inspiring utterly BEAUTIFUL post! However, your last sentence shocks me! How can you not love its taste? Pray, tell me!

      thanks 🙂
      I’m more into “clear” drinks than “milky” drinks; black coffee, red tea, green tea! But going to a coffee shop to order one of those does not make sense 😛 I usually order cappucino but can only drink half way through.

    I never realized you didn’t like the taste! Sub7an Allah, just as I was walking to my favourite cafe today, I was thinking how much of a blessing it is living in a place full of coffee shops! I cannot begin to describe what the whole coffee-shop experience does to me.. No matter what mood I’m in, sipping away my favourite cuppa will brighten up the rest of my day.. and Shahrazad, I think the stories of our lives are carved within the walls of the many many coffee shops we’ve been to over the past years; its amazing how the joy of talking to a best friend becomes even more joyfull when its “over a cupa coffee” 😉 canni wait to be back and have one of ’em!

      Indeed. If those walls could speak, we’re in for big trouble! Our secrets are written within and beyond the walls of coffee shops 😉

      Soulmate, with you, the taste of coffee does not matter. We indulge in our conversations more than the ambience or the coffee itself!

    I used to be a coffee addict, but since getting pregnant and cutting down on caffiene .. khalas I can easily live without it (though I love its smell so much). I still love going to coffee shops, and have my hot choclate there ..
