This little coffee pot is sitting idle these days, in contrast to Robin and I. It has been 15 days since I had a cup of coffee, and on days like today my need feels way bigger than my want. Don't be alarmed, I haven't given up coffee for ever, or for want of a healthier lifestyle or anything like that. It is more of an exercise in self control, to see if I can go without, for whatever reason.

Coffee is one of our most cherished rituals at home, from preparation to enjoyment. Robin has even added another step by drying and preserving the used
grounds to use as an ingredient in some of his clay bodies. Seriously! I have mostly missed the ritual aspect of sitting down to enjoy a cup, but as a substitute these pots are getting a little more use these days.

What should I do with the Costa Rica coffee I am bringing back??? Hope Robin has not gone off coffee as well.
Heading to the airport in an hour for an overnight then fly to Yuma tomorrow..
