Great to have such a neighbour
Although I have my own coffee percolator which is turned on the minute I reach the office, it was a pleasant surprise to drop in on Yusuf Jan at Mixit Technologies and discover that he had acquired a snazzy new coffee machine.
He offered me a cuppa and I accepted without any hesitation. Then, much like the young men who wait on you in a coffee house (but with much more charm of course), he rattled off the options – espresso, latte, cappuccino, long black. And then of course there were different strengths of coffee available. He also had sugar cubes – white and brown both. And coffee beans of all sorts.
I think I must have been slightly overwhelmed because I asked for a simple cup of black coffee and then when he wasn’t looking, quietly took a couple of brown sugar cubes. I normally don’t take sugar in my coffee but ever since I was a child, I have not been able to resist sugar cubes. Maybe it has something to do with being born in the Year of the Horse 😉
Anyway, I had a wonderful cup of very strong coffee – I think it was Ecuadorian. Straightened me up completely. It’s nice having a neighbour who has a terrific coffee machine – saves the drive to a coffee house, saves money (no he hasn’t started charging for it yet!) and provides great company. Life is good 🙂 The simple pleasures of life.
