Religion: ri-lij-uhn Something of overwhelming importance to a person.
Specifically, Heritage Coffee. If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I drink my Heritage every morning. When I have some, that is. I can’t tell you what they put in this coffee but I often wonder whether or not I would pass a drug test if randomly given one. I’m pretty sure it’s laced with crack.
I wish I could bottle the scent of this coffee and waft it out to all of you. Maybe it’s just because it’s home to me. Or maybe it’s because the last time I went home, I drank it every morning. Or maybe it’s because it was the first mocha that I ever tasted and loved. Whatever it is, Heritage is my poison. It renders me speechless. It causes me to melt into whatever rump-rest I’m sitting on. And it makes me miss home.
When Kyle and I first moved in together, he couldn’t figure out why I ordered my coffee from Alaska. Then he tasted it and his taste buds EXPLODED. When it was gone, we ran out and bought some other famous brand coffee. He agreed that it just wasn’t the same so we splurged on more Heritage. Then it became difficult to go without it so we kept ordering and ordering and ordering. Then one of my WONDERFUL, (for all intents and purposes), family members began sending it to me randomly. Right about the time we had to go buy some no-name bag of coffee, a couple of pounds would wind up on our doorstep.
When Kyle’s grandma passed away and we spent a week in North Carolina, we came home to two pounds of Heritage sitting inside our door. I smelled it from the kitchen before I even knew what was in the box by our door. That is absolutely no lie. It was a wonderful surprise after a difficult week.
So now we’re out of Heritage again and I’m shriveling up inside. I feel so far from my home and it makes me sad.
Unfortunately, shipping is out of control to our house so we’re not ordering Heritage anymore and my mornings are so sad and lonely without my morning cup of bliss.
I still drink coffee every morning but nothing takes the place of my Heritage.
This is NOT a sponsored post. I was feeling sentimental and wanted to give my favorite coffee company a shout out. I would, however; accept a few pounds of coffee from Heritage for the shameless plug but I’m not holding my breath.
