YUM! Seasonal Fall Flavors to Make the Most of International Coffee Day
by Jalen Robinzine
It’s there when you wake up. It’s there when you’re having a long day at the office. It’s there when you’re pulling an all-nighter working on the essay you avoided all week. It’s there when the new Netflix release has you hooked and you just need to watch “one more episode,” but we all know you mean the whole season. It’s the drink that’s untethered by any concept of time.
You don’t have to ask what “it” is, for you already know exactly what I’m talking about. Coffee. Whether you drink it hot, cold, with creamer, no creamer, or three shots of espresso, coffee is a mainstay in almost half of all households across the country. What about yours? At my house, no other beverage can give me the cartoonish superpower to float room by room and into the kitchen on the smell alone. Even if you don’t drink it, chances are you’ve still fallen in love with the smell of freshly-brewed coffee.
In fact, did you know the smell of coffee can boost productivity and improve analytical thinking? So the next time someone says it’s an addiction, just tell them you need it to be a better employee. #CaffeineProud
