I cannot stress the importance of good coffee. If it's not good, why drink it? What I mean by good coffee is strong coffee-and using quality beans. I have one cup of coffee per day so it's of great importance. It must be a rewarding experience. On the rare occasions that I go outside of my home for my one cup thereby putting the course of my day into someone else's hands...visualization is key. Sometimes it doesn't work but I figure it can't hurt to try.
