Gotta have my coffee at the Cafe. There is not much in life that pleases me more drinking a nice hot tasty Cup of Joe in the warm welcoming invirons of a nice cafe. And I don’t mean Starbucks. Yes I can have my coffee at home each day, and save quite a lot of money. Yes i could have it at home and instead of spending about $1,600 a year or $16,000 every 10 Years on the stuff, I’d just spend about $120 a year or $1200 in ten instead of that 16 Grand. Yes I could put a whopping $15,000 in my pockets every ten years or so if I wasn’t so extravagant in my daily coffee habit, but it juts wouldn’t be the same, I wouldn’t be in a cafe which I love so dearly. I’d be at home alone with my coffee and no one else around. I’d have my coffee but I wouldn’t have people nor the surroundings of a nice cafe like one of my favorites of all, the former Caffe Dante in New York’s Greenwich Village where I had my coffee ( Cappuccino, Espresso, Caffe Latte) nearly everyday for 30 years.
You see it’s not just about the coffee but about being around other people and the community and conviviality of this thing called the cafe, a place to gather and be among like-minded people, those who life the cafe life. I could just go there and burry myself in a book, do some writing, or converse with a friend, the waitress, or someone new who I just met, “you see I’m at a cafe,” and this is what you do, you read, you write, sip your coffee, you relax, that’s the essence of any good cafe, and I’ve been to many. I’ve been to Caffe Florian in Venice, Duex Maggot and Flore along with many more in Paris, to Greco in Rome, Gambrinus in Napoli, Biela in Buenas Aires, du Monde in New Orleans, Caravelle in Macau, and many more.

Yes I could have my Coffee at home, but why would I when I can go to the cafe, for “It’s an affordable Luxury, and one that I love so.” Coffee.
