coffee. I love the way it smells, the way it tastes, the way it makes me feel. It makes me happy.

Bach loved coffee too, so much so that he wrote a delightful cantata about it. This is part of the lyric from this cantata.

Mm! how sweet the coffee tastes,
more delicious than a thousand kisses,
mellower than muscatel wine.
Coffee, coffee I must have,
and if someone wishes to give me a treat,
ah, then pour me out some coffee!
