Plinky asked, “Do you need cof­fee to wake up in the morning?”

I would­n’t say I need it, because I don’t drink it every day. I do, how­ev­er, enjoy it, espe­cial­ly if I’m able to sit down and sip a cup in that qui­et time before any­one else is up and about.

My pre­ferred cof­fee at home is Maxwell House Inter­na­tion­al’s Suisse Mocha. The sug­ar-free sort is also decaf­feinat­ed. 1I do wish the com­pa­ny would give me more choic­es there, but they don’t. Back when I was at Agnes Scott, my friend Anne Mireille would ask me if I was drink­ing brown crayons because of the residue Suisse Mocha leaves behind in the cup. By the end of the fall quar­ter, she too was enjoy­ing “brown crayons” because the stuff is just that good, no mat­ter how it looks.

Away from home, I enjoy Star­bucks’ Rasp­ber­ry Vanil­la Mocha. No, that isn’t on the menu — it’s a spe­cial order, and well worth the trou­ble (two pumps of each syrup added to the reg­u­lar mocha for the Grande size). That’s even more calo­rie-laden than Suisse Mocha, though, so it’s a very spe­cial treat.
