What is organic coffee? Usually that means chemicals and no artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. I like to use chemical-free detergent for dishes and clothes, chemical-free bath soap, and even chemical-free soap for the dog. So why not use organic coffee, free of harsh chemicals? When I read that I can win 3 lbs of Barista's beans organic coffee, I got all excited. That's not only because I like to use natural products. I'm almost out of coffee beans!
When I was a little girl, I loved the smell of my mother's morning coffee. So one day when nobody was paying close attention to me, I climbed onto the kitchen cabinet and searched for the coffee. I hadn't yet learned the technique of making coffee, but I tried. I sipped it the way I'd seen Mother do. Spitting and spewing, I got rid of the nasty taste before I could even swallow the first sip. It was awful. It cured any coffee craving for me until I was in my 20's. Even then I wasn't too fond of it. Twenty years later I acquired a taste for coffee, and now I love the smell of coffee beans being ground and the taste of hot flavored coffee. Mmm. I love my morning coffee. Whether at home, at Starbucks, or strolling through my favorite antique shop, I enjoy my morning coffee.
