Good Morning everyone. I cannot express in words how important coffee is and how much I love it. Coffee is what makes getting up worth it. It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. I think that B.C. actually stands for Before Coffee.
