The higher the coffee is grown, the better it will taste; one coffee tree yields slightly less than 1 pound of coffee per year.
Coffee facts from a 2001 National Coffee Association survey include:
Fifty-two percent of the adult population of the U.S. over 18 years of age drink coffee every day, representing 107 million daily drinkers.
Another 28% drink coffee occasionally.
Coffee drinkers consume on average 3.3 cups of coffee per day.
Thirty-five percent of coffee drinkers drink their coffee black; while 62% add a sweetener and/or creaming agent.
I haven't posted in a few days since we were out of town celebrating Christmas with family and it wiped me out (4 1/2 hour drive one way to Tyler) so it's going to take me a few days to recoup. Plus I just need some down time since I really haven't had much the past few months. But, as I reflected on the end of 2007 and the fresh beginning of a new year - I thought about all the great things starting my blog brought me: a way to showcase my gift to encourage/inspire others, a group of gals who like what I do and understand me; give me positive reinforcement and encouragement, a few goodies just for replying to their messages, and most of all a reason other than getting a paycheck to get on the computer! So ladies, thank you for visiting me this year and I look forward to many more years sharing with you along the way.
