From Humble beginnings
I'd like to tell you the story of my life.
I started life as a tiny little seed, firmly planted into fertile soil in regions with a mild climate. My ancestors spread us into many countries, especially along the equator, where we've grown into healthy medium-sized trees and produced good crops for many years.
We are grown in other regions as well, and this affects our flavour, depending on the soil conditions and the climate.
These gorgeous coffee cherries are the fruits of my seed, and go through many transformations with the help of people who care and want to bring out the best in me.
The lengthy processes that are done before I can be turned into a good cup of coffee, is a story for another day! The machinery below is just some of the equipment used to eventually turn me into roasted coffee beans which are best ground fresh just before making that cup of coffee.
I'm proud to say that many people all over the world say they cannot function properly without beginning their day with a good, strong coffee!
There are the most exquisite coffee shops found in the most unexpected places, some elegant and others quaint and arty, where they serve the best coffees and cappuccinos.
Cappuccinos have become an art form that requires skilled baristas who make the most stunning designs in the rich foamy tops.
As you can see, the writer of my story loves cappuccinos and has quite a collection of photographs taken all over; her friends know very well not to touch their cups until she's first taken a photograph ;) Hearts seem to be the most popular shapes used, but in the photo below, the barista has made a swan in a pond
Call me coffee crazy if you like, but I unashamedly admit that this statement is very true; I love a good coffee and am so thankful to the person/ people who first discovered this beverage back in the mid-15th century!

Long time no see!!!
It's great to have you here 😁
You're always so creative with your coffee post. I love this!!
You would have to apply some strong discipline to not want to collect all those little coffee pottery and crockery. They are absolutely adorable.
I like the way you told your story, and yes, the coffee art is perfect!
Old records for placemats!? So unique. Hmmm, I wonder if my uncle still has his collection. I like that!
Quaint and arty indeed.
Thanks so much for sharing this with us:))))
All good wishes 🤗
Hi @millycf1976, thank you for the welcome back! This cappuccino pics have been shouting at me not to neglect them any longer! And I miss the coffee community, so hope to pop in here more often. The Silver Bloggers have kept ne real busy, hence the absence. Have a lovely day or night, it's way past my bedtime. See you soon Milly💞

I totally relate to being up way past bedtime. My energy kicks in in the wee hours of the morning when the rest of the world is silent. I certainly miss your community too, and all the activities including #BOW. I do understand you not getting to pop by frequently, as I find myself in the same position focusing on my communities too. #SilverBloggers rocks and it is a GREAT community to emulate.
C u soon 😍
It's weird how I just cannot start functioning until nighttime, we're both definitely night owls ;)
Running a community certainly takes up a lot of time as there's much to be done in the background; fortunately, I have a wonderful team!
Hope to pop in here more often!
Coffee lover here as well. And... you have effectively helped me to discover a new community. I would have never thought to look for coffee lovers here. Thank you @lizelle as I sip a fresh brew while I type. Love your photos.
I'm so glad you discovered this community now, @millycf1976 is an awesome lady and I'm sure you'll love sharing your coffee experiences in her wonderful community;)
I'll be sure to frequent and make coffee friends.
What a beautiful experience; I would love to visit a coffee farm and explore all the stages of coffee. 😀
It really was an eye-opener, I hope to share that here sometime even though I have shared it before but can do a whole new blog about that experience. Makes one realize why good coffee costs as much as it does!
Congratulations @lizelle! You received a personal badge!
Wait until the end of Power Up Day to find out the size of your Power-Bee.
