Coffee beans make the world better, no matter where you are
No matter where I am, I start the day off with a nice cup of Joe. You'd be surprised how good the coffee is in Iraq. It's not a national custom, but like all good soldiers do, we improvise. Our unit has two bean grinders, a state-of-the-art coffee pot and more coffee than Martha Stuart has citations. Our families and friends send us every kind of coffee imaginable: vanilla roast, Starbucks Christmas blend, basic Foldiers, etc. We are coffee drinkers and since we can't drink beer, we drink a lot of coffee. In fact, I think I'll pour a cup right now.
