A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

I am a loyal slave..

Posted by Pepper on December 5, 2010


I liked you the moment I was introduced to you. Little did I know you would become such an addiction. Functioning without you seems so unimaginable. I cling to you when life is tough. I look forward to the warmth you offer and that bitter sweet taste you leave on my lips. I hope you will continue getting me through rough sleepless nights. You are a charmer, and the world falls for your tempting traits, but you have to give me credit for my sheer loyalty. I love you, my steaming mug of coffee.


There is something about coffee, that makes me its slave. The fresh aroma, the comforting taste, the flavourful addiction..  I was reading my old blog and realised that I’ve always been loyal to coffee. I wouldn’t have gotten through so many deadlines and submissions if my all night affairs were not accompanied by this magical potent. I might like some hot masala chai on some days, but I don’t find any  beverage as soothing as coffee. And a cup of filter coffee is enough to send me into a blissful coma.

These days, I take my cup of coffee to the backyard and savour every sip before the morning chores begin. On most days, its cold outside, especially in the mornings, but that is what makes me relish the warmth of the brew as it slides down my throat.

    Very true about meeting deadlines and working through the nights. Hadn’t it been for coffee I’d have messed up with me tests and exams 😀 And you wrote it so well that I thought it was dedicated to someone until I read the last that is. 😛

      I know, its such an insult to rush through your coffee! 🙂 But if i have absolutely no time, I’d rather gulp it down instead of letting go of it..

    Oh, I just lovve the smell of coffee! But I stopped drinking tea and coffee 4 years ago. Just like that; I thought I was getting addicted! Now, I am a total teetotaller!

    Ha ha ha..I almost got tricked into believing after reading the first few lines, that it was a mushy-mushy post for your prince charming 😀

    Not a coffee-person, I’m more of a tea-loyalist though, but there are times when it does give me the much needed kick when I feel tired or lethargic 🙂

  16. […] My beloved backyard. How many times I had stood in there, pondering about life. That is where I used to have my morning cup of coffee. That is where we were surprised by the springing of a mysterious rose plant. And here I was again, […]
