I write this while enjoying my morning cup of coffee. Yesterday was rough and today is shaping up to be quite busy, but this cup of coffee sure is soothing. I like mine in a big mug that I can wrap my hands around. Hot coffee makes you pause. You have to take slow sips which is a great little break in the hectic morning routine.
With all the allergies we deal with in this house, so far there is no coffee allergy. However, I must mention that coffee allergies are out there and real! For those allergic individuals, their immune system will react to the proteins found in coffee beans, the caffeine, or even cross contamination issues from the processing and packaging. This can cause reactions similar to other food allergies such as hives, wheezing, and stomach cramps, to name a few.
Well, my coffee cup is empty now. Time to start tackling the day!
