¡Café, Café!

¡Café, Café! is what a Costa Rican would say out loud in a joyful way when the coffee desire strikes. It either means that he/she/they is asking for coffee or is about to start making it. Basically, it’s an invitation for those around to join in for coffee and a good conversation.

I have a windowed view of the world outside, music in the background, and my first cup of coffee. Most often my thoughts are about coffee. So here I’m writing about it and sharing it with you.
