The Virtues of Coffee

Coffee Beans

The virtues of coffee
Are truly extensive,
Especially of Javas
Whose price is expensive.

Brown is the color
Dark black, light with milk,
But guzzle it slowly
And it tastes like silk.

The way that it glides
O’er the lips ‘cross the tongue,
Can give me a pleasure
Whose praises I’ve sung.

Coffee

So I’ll sing of my coffee
The beverage so hot,
Oh, it’s iced when you drink it?
With milk? Oh, why not?

The reasons we drink it
Are clear as the drink.
We drink it to work
And we drink it to think.

We drink it to smile
And to wave and to care.
If I make a pot now
We can sit down and share.

At Aqua Vita Creative, coffee and creativity often go hand in hand. Sitting down to write, draw or design something awesome just feels better with a good cup of Joe. We wrote this little poem to acknowledge our appreciation for the rich, caffeinated brew.

In fact, we’re brewing a pot right now, so grab a mug and join us to discuss the most delicious way to market your business. Mmmmmm, Java.
