Up until about five years ago, I was not a fan of coffee. However, that changed when I started my own local publication, and was renting a shared workspace downtown. Everyone would gather around in the “free coffee room” to bounce ideas off of each other and share our progress with one another.
Really cool, right? At first, I would just attend these sessions to sit back and enjoy the creativity flowing amongst everyone. But eventually I began to ease my way into the coffee sipping and mingling, and it was the gateway for my new obsession with coffee. It is easily one of my favorite work memories, primarily because I was working for myself AND I had started my own local magazine that was getting a ton of attention. Not only did I fall in love with the idea of being an entrepreneur, but I also closely associated the rich, energizing aromas of coffee with all of the success that followed.
illy coffee is popular not only in the States, but clearly in the country of it’s origin, Italy, as well. I’ve been to Italy a handful of times, and illy is a prominent name amongst Italian coffee. It is truly a pleasure to be able to have my own illy coffee at home every morning, and something that I simply cannot start my day without.
My days now have transitioned into foodblogging and other various work-related activities, but I am now a full-blown coffee head in the AM. I currently get up at 5 AM every morning, so you’d better believe that my cup of illy coffee is my partner in crime before the rest of the world decides to join me.
