A few years ago, I spent most of my days working on my laptop at Starbucks. It was my way of combining business (translation) with pleasure. At the time, I knew practically all the baristas so it almost felt like I was a character in Cheers! I believe I wrote this poem to win a coffee press. In fact, I was the only entrant:-)

What does coffee mean to me?
Coffee is community
Every day I sit and dream
Of caramel macchiato or a frap with cream
I sip my beverage and watch the people go by
Starbucks inspires me
And that’s no lie
Here I combine business with pleasure
And enjoy my drink
Whatever the weather
Listen to the music
Nestle in the comfy chairs
Talk to my friends
And drink away my cares
