“I have reason to believe that coffee is about to stop working!”

If coffee stopped working – goodness! If. Coffee. Stopped working?!

Of course what comes to mind immediately is, that the cessation of coffee’s effect to caffeinate, fuel, hark and even inspire being non-existent would be a global travesty!

What is more, what comes to my mind – if coffee stop working – is if coffee stopped working as an epicenter to draw culture, to be culture, to give a voice to a current people. If coffee stopped working, then regardless of who we are, where we are and why we could there be that external place that reminds us that internally we’re all of the same. I hope a circumstance never gives reason to have that belief. – cde
