It was not appreciated. I got one positive comment and of maybe 11 mugs waiting to be filled, about three were used. Not a coffee drinker myself, I had missed what turned out to be an important social part - meeting people during the walk down and the chatting in the queue. The walk surely also served as a small, intentional break.
But coffee has not always been this social key. So a thought arose: what could replace this almost ritual beverage and the path to it? Not counting smoking and drinks at the local pub. Any suggestions?
