What got you interested in coffee?

Being a typical university student, I like many others before me, inevitably gave in to caffeine in my second year. I admit, at first I hated the bitter black liquid, and could only handle the high calorie "double-double" (today's has about 230 cal). This became my daily drink for the next two years.

In my fourth year of university, the stars aligned. I realized that one of my friends owned a cafe (Museo Espresso Bar), and I was enrolled in a geography class that focused on urban design, people and pedestrian friendly cities.

Our professor argued (and I agree) that some of the "best" urban centers in the world are filled with many small (often outdoor) cafes. The result of all these cafes is the gathering of people; alone or in groups to participate in discussion, collaboration, or simply just to 'people watch'. 

It was my love for good urban design, and the hope for a more pedestrian/cyclist/people friendly Saskatoon that sparked my love for coffee culture, and it hasn't slowed down yet!
