CoffeeLifious and the Highly-Caffeinated Path

Simon, main author of CoffeeLifious

Hey guys, my name’s Simon and for me, coffee is that precious black liquid that makes me happy, productive and energized.

Highly-caffeinated is what I’m all about when it comes to coffee.

This explains why I LOVE ristretto so much, which is a highly concentrated type of coffee derived from espresso.

But my relationship with coffee drinks wasn’t always that smooth.

In fact, it has been a rather weird one, to be honest.

That’s why I couldn’t be bothered with starting each day with a nice cup of Joe.

A few years ago I thought that I didn’t really need any caffeine to kickstart my day…

Okay, but… why?

Because I foolishly thought that caffeine is for weak and that I can be just as productive and energetic without it.

Sure, that’s definitely doable and I don’t deny that.

As I Grew Older I Started Realizing How Precious Caffeine Can Be!

Once family life, work and other real-life things got a firm hold of me, I realized that I need that extra bit of kick to the butt to keep going.

And that’s how it all started for me.

Coffee and caffeine became close friends of mine.

I even still remember the first coffee maker that I bought – a so-so Tchibo Cafissimo capsule coffee machine.

Sure, it was noisy and the coffee wasn’t anything to write home about, but it sparked my interest in caffeine-loaded drinks in general.

In fact, my favorite coffee drinks are those strong, highly-caffeinated types like the very eye-opening double espresso!

Currently, I’m using the lovely Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me  that I bought because it’s super compact, dead easy to clean and delivers great coffee in no time.

One thing led to another and I decided to transfer my love and passion for coffee by creating a coffee-themed website.

Not just yet another site about coffee though…

Johann Sebastian Bach

Apart from being a world-renowned compositor and musician from Germany during the baroque period, Bach was also an avid coffee lover.

But what’s even more astonishing is that he wrote a secular cantata titled Coffee Cantata, sometime between 1732 and 1735.

In fact, this was more of a miniature comic opera that portrayed a story about being addicted to coffee.

Ludwig Van Beethoven

The famed German pianist and composer is hailed as one of the greatest composers in Western music.

And he also drank coffee – huge amounts of it!

In fact, the popular German composer was so pedantic about his coffee consumption, that reports reveal that Beethoven would count 60 beans cup, by hand.

Søren Kierkegaard

Kierkegaard was a popular Christian poet, philosopher and theologian hailing from Denmark who lived during the 19th century.

He would fill his cup to the brim with sugar and then pour black coffee on top, which would then dissolve the sugar pyramid… wow!
