You may not know this about me but I love a good cup of coffee.  Fresh ground coffee beans, filtered water, perfect temperature … and I’m good to go first thing in the morning (with my whole grain cereal).   In the past, I often noted the health benefits of drinking coffee despite the seemingly negative view many health conscious individuals seem to hold.
