Addictions

Original; oil on canvas 16x20 inches

‘Everybody has them, you love them or hate them, addictions are hard to resist. Coffee is one of mine and I love it. The smell reminds me of home, the warmth makes my skin come back to life and the taste fills my mouth with new ideas and motivation. I drink it in the morning when my eyes are too tired to wake up, at work when my collogues are dehydrated, at nights when I kind of forgot about my deadline or just with friends or family to take a break and catch up on what’s life about. I will always be able to find an excuse to take my coffee.

For a little while I worked at a coffee shop in Arnhem. I loved the smell of all the different coffee beans. Many variations could be made for every coffee lover. Slow coffee is my personal favorite. Freshly grained coffee beans, weight to the right ratio combined with heated water to the perfect temperature, is the best way to give you the authentic coffee experience. Just black, please. ’
