Caffeine Confessions

I still remember the smell of coffee coming from my parent’s kitchen every morning as I woke up for school. It’s a vivid memory I have that keeps replaying in my head when I take the first sip of coffee. My mother laughing as my dad spills some of his tea on the floor grabbing her mug carefully so she doesn’t do the same thing. That’s probably why I love coffee so much, or maybe its the countless cup of Joe’s my mother gave me as I rushed out the door. Whatever it is, it always reminds me of home.

Now as my partner in crime and caffeine fanatic boyfriend shares the same addiction as me. We make sure to visit various coffee shops when we are together. Such as Tertulia Coffee located in Oakland, which has an amazing art gallery hosted by Sanchez Contemporary. I guess you can say I’ve handed him the torch to provide me with a cup of Joe every time I see him. But this time, I make sure to request soy with my coffee as I take baby steps towards my transition into veganism!

En Español…

Todavía recuerdo el olor de café que venía de la cocina cada mañana. Es un recuerdo que se repite en mi cabeza cada vez que tomo café. Cuando veía a mi mamá riendo sé cuando a mi padre se le derramaba un poco de su té en el suelo. Probablemente por eso me gusta tanto el café, o tal vez es la innumerable tazas de café que me dio mi madre mientras corría hacia la puerta. Sea lo que sea, siempre me recuerda a casa.
Ahora, como fanático de cafeína mi novio comparte la misma adicción que yo. Siempre nos aseguramos de visitar varias tiendas de café cuando estamos juntos. Tal como Tertulia Coffee ubicada en Oakland, que tiene una galería de arte increíble organizada por Sánchez Contemporary. Se puede decir que le he entregado la antorcha a mi novio, y ahora el me regala una taza de cafe  cada vez que lo veo. Pero esta vez, me aseguro de preguntar por leche de soya en mi café mientras tomo pasos chicos hacia mi transición al veganismo!
