"Aroma filling the crisp morning air. Lowering the French press, after eagerly waiting for the dark and bold flavors to be released. Pouring it piping hot over raw cream and grass fed butter in my mug. Too hot to taste, so I am forced to close my eyes and breathe in the aromas. Small sips as I soak up the quite time for myself. To me, that is a great cup of coffee."
