Today, I had the perfect cup of coffee. It was after a meal at a restaurant with Little Italy in its name. The waitress didn't even offer me cream, not that I would have taken it. A pinch of sugar is all I need. Maybe she knew. It was coffee to be enjoyed for coffee's sake.
I think I've become too accustomed to burnt stale coffee beans and watered down office concoctions.
I was looking for a song to commemorate my flavorful experience, and I found this in my iTunes.
Bob Marley - One Cup of Coffee
This is one of Marley's first singles in his pre-Jah enlightenment, even pre-Wailers days. He released it as a solo artist in 1962.
Disc One of the incredible Songs of Freedom Box Set contains many more songs from Marley's early career. The set as a whole is fantastic, you really get to see Marley's progression as an artist.
