Before Coffee, the world is a dark place.
Coffee is the second-most traded commodity in the world, behind only petroleum, and has become a mainstay of the modern diet. Believed to have originated in Ethiopia, coffee was used in the Middle East in the 16th century to aid concentration. – History Extra
The truth behind acronyms
BC, AD, CE, AC, DC, AC/DC. We love our acronyms. Today, debate continues about switching the nomenclature of the Gregorian calendar. Itself an evolution of the Julian calendar.
Secularist scholars are using B.C. to now mean Before the Common era. It still dates the Common Era from the birth of Christ, so no one is fooled. BC is still the same years — those Before Christ. Gregory was a Catholic Pope after all. Changing labels is apparently easier than changing calendars. We have a happier solution!
In the Common Era (CE), we have one big benefit BC lacked. Coffee. No one is happy Before Coffee. With the Coffee Era (CE) anything is possible.
Before Coffee life was brutish. After the Coffee Era? We have a third place to gather that isn’t home or work. Before Coffee? The continents were isolated. After the Coffee Era? Coffee is grown on almost every continent. We travel the globe. For Coffee. Coffee continues to grow in dominance and influence. With Coffee we don’t have to take everything so seriously.
Coffee, like Aging With Freedom, something we can all agree upon.
Go ahead, fill your cup. We’re living in the Coffee Era, after all.
Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after. —Anne Morrow Lindbergh
