Most of my dear patients know that I am a big fan of my espresso. I’m often found enjoying my brew during the day and we encourage all who visit to partake in the experience. I probably learned how to enjoy coffee when I was in elementary school. My family always had a steel percolator pot of coffee with “Eight-o-clock” coffee beans. I remember the sound and sight of the bubbling water at the top of the pot and the aroma that permeated the kitchen.
I am a big Starbucks fan, but only of their beans. In the old days they had good coffee too, but their machines today value speed over quality, resulting in a coffee that is too acidic. They still have the best beans around though.
When you spend nine hours a day in your office, you come to call it home, and your patients, guests. I want my guests to feel comfortable and I feel obligated to treat them like family. If they enjoy coffee we are happy to make them a brew — regular, espresso, or cappuccino. The key to great coffee starts with fresh ingredients — water, beans, and milk. Coffee beans only last about a week until they dry out and lose their mojo. I have a countertop semi-automatic machine that is easy to maintain and offers us great shots consistently.
