Love my coffee a little more today
Every now and then I read a blog that makes me smile and I learn a little bit. As I sit with my morning cup of coffee (okay, my 2nd cup) I appreciate it a little more. On NPR's blog The Salt I just read that in 17th Century Istanbul you could be decapitated for drinking coffee!!! Check out the article here. I had no idea that coffee was as controversial as alcohol at different times and places or that drinking was punishable by death. Seems a little extreme, doesn't it?
