Is coffee really so addictive and good? I think that it is both, and has sexy taste as well as rich and full bodied. I love that smell and taste of the coffee, especially on a cold morning. The steam, which comes out of it, makes it so irresistible and very relaxing at the same time.

I drink coffee in the morning to give myself a boost when I am starting my day. Coffee contains a large amount of caffeine, that stimulant we all know and love. As such, it perks up my system and places my mind on full alert after drinking a steaming cup of coffee. It also warms me up on a cold day, keeps me going when the temperature rises, grinds away the rough edges after a hard night and makes the hours at work seem like minutes.

For those who want great coffee taste but without the caffeine, you should check out decaf k-cups coffee which is tastier and healthier for you! There are over 200 different coffees, teas, and cocoa in K-Cups and the fans of decaffeinated beverages will be pleased to see the variety available to them.

Smiley Another great benefit of coffee is how it affects my mood. Studies have shown that after drinking coffee, people feel happier and more at ease – due to the presence of caffeine in their system. But be aware, the study also noted that more than 2 cups daily increases the risk of anxiety and panic attacks. Some people respond more readily than others – if you find yourself feeling jittery or nervous, ease up on the Joe.

Here are some of the coffee trivia which I find them interesting! Smiley

* When shopping for perfume, take some coffee with you in your bag and have a good sniff in between smelling each perfume to refresh your nose!
* For reducing wrinkles and improving their skin, the Japanese have been known to bathe in coffee grounds fermented with pineapple pulp.
* Turkish law makes it legal for a woman to divorce her husband if he fails to provide her with her daily quota of coffee.
* Sprinkle spent coffee grounds around the base of your garden plants and it will stop snails and slugs from munching them!
* A mixture of coffee grounds and sugar fed to a pot plant and watered regularly, will revive houseplants that have turned yellow in winter.

It's really nice, this coffee stuff, isn't it? Have a smile with your morning brew! Smiley
