Yes, you read that correctly. I am giving up coffee. I have been an ardent coffee drinker for decades and I decided its time to hang up my espresso machine. I can easily enjoy 3 to 6 cups of espresso while reading the morning paper. And I truly love everything about coffee. But, sadly, I have been experiencing some unusual health issues recently and I believe I have traced them back to my coffee consumption. I have tried reducing my consumption but the problems remain. I won't cry over this change in my life. I will, in my usual fashion, take it in stride and the sun will rise tomorrow. Fortunately I do enjoy tea. So for now I will see where this road takes me. Wish me well.
