He unintentionally licked his lips, then as if to conjure the elixer before me, he raised his hands towards his face in a florish and wiggled his fingers in front of his widening smile.

“A pleasure”, he continued.

“Both, warm and comforting, yet bitter. Pungent. Aromatic.”, He paused, thoughtfully.

“Can you tell that from such a thing as a bean, this black gold that I yearn for, I thirst for – is more than just a morning ritual? My mouth cries out for such a taste. My eyes blearily search for the liquoris tones. My nostrils seek the aroma, the roasted vapours, they tingle my senses like my lovers kiss”. His voice more animated as he spoke, his eyes wide.

I could almost taste this magical sounding liquid.

Black as HellStrong as Death and as Sweet as Love
