What is your favourite time of the day? For me, it is my first cup of coffee of the morning. I usually have it after the school run and before starting my day of work. It is an important breather, and a good time for me to relax and to start organising my day.
My ritual hasn’t really changed over time. In Paris, I used to have a strong double espresso. No sugar of course. Things have evolved a bit, actually. Maybe I have mellowed out, after all:  I now have a smooth cappuccino, with a sprinkle of chocolate powder on top of it. And I love it. Especially the first sip…

I try to limit my coffee intake to a couple of cups a day. Some of my friends have completely removed coffee from their diet. I couldn’t do it. I don’t think that it is too good to be perfect anyway. You have got to keep a few small pleasures, right? I might be in denial here. Where does this love of coffee come from? I simply have no idea. A bad coffee puts me immediately in a bad mood. I can smell it, I can taste it and it is disgusting.

Is it a bad habit? Should I stop? Why is that the best things in life, such as chocolate and coffee, can also be so harmful? So unfair.
Right, now the difficult part: it is time to start my day…
