Coffee Consumption – Room For Growth
Coffee is taken seriously in the United States but not anywhere near the same as in Europe. We enjoy our coffee and many people rely on the morning cup of coffee to jump start them but we have a ways to go before we can compare to the Europeans for truly relaxing in a coffee shop and enjoy a good espresso. In our hustle and bustle we will go to a coffee shop but often it is for a coffee drink to go. There are those who will be sitting around the coffee shop but often times it is more to use the internet than to sit down for good conversation and enjoy a cup of great coffee. There are places to enjoy a good filter coffee in Chicago like in many metropolitan areas.
Another way to enjoy a gourmet cup of coffee is to join a monthly club and receive the best of the best directly to your home. There you can use a professional quality espresso machine and have friends and family join you for a great cup. Even if you are one to grab a cup in the morning to jump start you at least you are starting with a delicious cup of the finest coffee around.
Often these coffee clubs send the very best coffees from the best roaster in the country. Having a discerning taste for coffee is something that can be cultivated with the aid of those who sent the coffee or through reading and discussing the coffees subtleties with your local barista or with other aficionados. It is not only fun and interesting to broaden ones horizons it will be something your guests will appreciate when you have a dinner party and serve after dinner coffee that sets your dessert off perfectly.
