Coffee Culture

I often stop on the way to work to pick up a Cappuccino; the morning coffee stop being a common American practice. Cars sold here all have plenty of places to store cups while traveling; mine manages six receptacles.

Of the five coffee shops that are between home and office I stop at the only outlet of a local coffee roaster. Every morning, I see a group of middle aged men gathered round a couple of tables, chatting and drinking coffee. Staff greet regulars by name. Personal cups and mugs hang behind the bar. In short, this feels like an English country pub, but one in which caffeine and not alcohol is the drug of choice
