As old as our civilization, we have searched for the perfect cup of coffee. During the 1950’s, more often then not, the elusive great cup of coffee was found close to home.
Back then, coffee was brewed with a percolator. Folgers, Maxwell House, and A & P Eight O’Clock coffees were the brand names that millions of middle class Americans started their day with.
So, why do we like coffee so much?
The first sip of great coffee goes a long way to framing just how the entire day will go. A bad cup of coffee will make us irritable or worse, mad at the world even before we ever leave the house.
Thus, on a recent rather bizarre Friday night, I made the decision to search for a really great cup of coffee, town by town, in this part of West Kentucky.
