My Swedish-American family quotes this saying often. It was on a coffee pot or mug of my grandmother’s, I think. While my oldest brother and I totally missed the obsessed-with-coffee gene, it runs strong through the rest of the family. Coffee is one of our favorite gifts to give one another, because it is clutter-free and always gets used.
The only thing better than giving coffee is giving coffee and helping to change the world. Enter Gobena. They sell organic fair-trade coffee, and 100% of their profits go to help orphans. They partner with Lifesong to love the fatherless. Check them out.
