The name is powerful enough to seduce the mind and lull one into an escape that reeks the aroma too tempting to ignore. It brews the mind just perfect along with its many thoughts and awakens the soul. The way our senses respond to this concoction served in a mug, is way beyond explanation. That color of the coffee beans, the way they pull you close to them….that aroma that finds it’s way through the nostrils, filling it in completely, till it reaches the heart through the lungs and decides to stay there for a while…that flavor, and the way it engages in a dance with the taste buds, teasing, playing and later, lingering even, as a memento, a heartfelt goodbye. Such is this potion!
Christmas in a mug!
This beverage rightly deserves the above title. I mean, it shouldn’t even be a nominee and steal the award right away. It’s so easy to come across the coffee-lover’s gang and when that happens, there’s some sort of telepathy and an exchange of smiles between them saying, ” I get you” which gives one a sense of belonging. The coffee craze has become some sensation and it’s gripping the entire nation. No wonder so many cafés are emerging in every nook and corner, each serving their own variety of options. It’s like a Disney land for coffee-philic people , where the many options present confuse and torture the mind, making one opt from a list of all the “Must have’s”
Once you get the taste of it, it’s difficult to stay away from it. The craving keeps on building up like a storm in you, till it peaks to a point where it’s all ready to explode any minute. The want to sip it through the hectic days, empty mornings or long nights and silent conversations is inevitable.
My first cup of coffee for the day, started with me being on my way to the Doctor’s. I had an appointment in an hour and I took off from home all alone. After being picked up by a wheelchair transportation company, I got tested for a few things and was on my way with the reports. I was both apprehensive and eager, and for some reason, I didn’t want to visit alone. And I thought to myself, what can be a better company than a cup of coffee brewing amidst the entire tensed atmosphere surrounding me?!With the first sip that I took, it made me forget everything for a brief moment. With the next, all came back to reality. But with every sip, it calmed me down. It gave me a pep talk I so needed, held my hand and whispered to me, ” Don’t worry, this too shall pass ” Finally, they called out my name, the wait was over. And I walked in, to brave the world with a smile on my face.
