COFFEE

A Cup of Coffee

I love coffee. There is nothing strange with that since millions of people share the same feeling with me. There is also nothing unusual with my habit of having two or more cups of coffee in a day for millions of people on this earth do the same. Sometimes I think that coffee is one of the most significant matters in one’s life. It is so important that some people just cannot stand to skip their ‘coffee moment’ whilst they can forget to have other primary needs. But why and how does coffee got its throne? Why and how does this black bitter liquid substance steal attention of millions of people in the world? Are there facts about it we should now? Well if you are not a coffee lover or just start to love it, these are some things you might need to know.

It is obvious that people will not consume coffee if there is nothing good with it. The first reason of it is its flavour and taste. You wake up in the morning, go to the kitchen, take a teaspoon of coffee, put it in a cup, add hot boiled water, stir it, smell the flavour, taste it on your lips, and you will know that your day will be just fine. Or if you are not in love with it deep enough and you think it is bitter, add some sugar, or milk, or cream, whipped cream, double whipped cream, mocha, chocolate, tea, or even whiskey if you are an Irish, and you will fall in love again. Then, what do you feel after your cup is empty? I bet you feel energized. That is the second reason, as coffee gives you caffeine which provides you a small amount of energy. So, whenever you are tired or sleepy but you need to have some works done, a cup of coffee is a good company.

Of course, people don’t only drink coffee when they are tired. One very good way to enjoy a cup of coffee is to have another person drink another cup of coffee beside you. Now, that is the third reason. Coffee is a social builder because it helps you get along with your friends and relatives, and most people are not restrained to have it. Some coffee lovers might find a new definition of best friend: someone to get along, have some coffee, and do nothing together.

Coffee is good, but this is not the conclusion yet. There are also some sides of this beverage that you might want to consider before you continue your relationship with it. First of all, if you have heart problems, high blood pressure or weak stomach, consuming coffee might not be the best idea. As mentioned before, there is caffeine inside coffee that will give a metabolism boost to the consumer. This caffeine is a double-edged sword. For you with those problems above, caffeine will not, -I repeat- will not brighten your day. This caffeine is also addictive, and that is why some people cannot go too far from coffee, they are addicted. So, if you do not want to depend on something, especially if you live in South Pole where coffee is extremely rare, forget it!

Coffee is good, and yes this is the conclusion. You might find me not being objective because I am a coffee lover, so in the name of the Coffee God I have to say that I don’t care. If you want to confront me, please also confront the other millions coffee lovers. I only need to add some little knowledge about coffee, besides being good, that some people might better put some facts about coffee into their consideration before deciding to have it as their deity. There are actually many more facts about coffee I cannot mention here, but if you want to know some more, I’ll be at the coffee shop.

Coffee Shop, the Most Interesting Place to Hang Out

Youth, usually spend their spare time hanging out with their friends. Just like the other youth, I also like to hang out with my friends to spend our spare time, especially in the evening. I usually hang out to coffee shop with my friends. I think it is better to go to the coffee shop than go to the mall, because we don’t have to spend a lot of money just to hang out or refresh our mind. So, coffee shop is my favorite place to hang out with my friends because it has many kind of menu and there are so many activities to spend the spare time.

Every coffee shop has many kind of menu with average prices. Not only drink, but they also have many choices of food, for example there are French fries, toast, and noodles. And for drink, there are coffee (original coffee, “Luwak” coffee, etc), chocolate, juice, milkshake, tea, etc. So, don’t worry if you come with your empty stomach because you can fill it with the food that they have. I have ever visited some of coffee shop in Yogyakarta, such as Code, Goeboek, Oase, Ngeban, etc. All of those have a similar menu and prices. Maybe the things that differentiate them are only the view and the visitors. But, the most favorite coffee shop for me is “Goeboek”. It is a coffee shop which is located in Seturan. A lot of people come to “Goeboek” every evening. Especially on Saturday nights, it is always difficult to find the empty table. Even though “Goeboek” has no beautiful view like the other coffee shops, it can be the comfortable one for me and my friends.

It must be boring if you just talk with your friends, drink coffee, or eat the toast. So, my friends and I usually do some activities to spend our spare time. The activities we usually do are playing cards, listening to the music, and watching football match. Or, we are only looking around us and enjoy the view. That’s why we choose to go to coffee shop because it has a friendly atmosphere with a beautiful view. We really enjoy it and it always makes us being careless of the time. Indeed, the thing that we are always waiting the most is the girls. Usually, there are a lot of beautiful girls with sexy dresses come to “Goeboek”. They are the visitors just like us and also SPG (Sales Promotion Girls). As a matter of fact, a coffee shop now is becoming a common place to hang out, because nowadays, it is easy to find coffee shops in some strategic places in Yogyakarta, for example in Babarsari, Code, Alun-alun, Kaliurang, etc.

According to all these fact, we can see that coffee shops can be the favorite place to hang out, especially for youth like me. We do not have to spend much money by visit the coffee shop because they have many kind of menu with a low price, moreover there are so many activities that we can do to spend our spare time.
