I have long been a fan of coffee. I start my day at 1am so a pot or two of coffee is not only desired but necessary. For me there is nothing quite as satisfying as a great cup of coffee. When I have a marginal cup of coffee I am okay with it. It doesn't turn me into a jerk.

There was obviously a time in American history when a woman's worth was determined by how well she made coffee. Let the brains and skills be damned! Woman brew up a cup of Joe and I will determine if you have a place to sleep tonight. It's hard to believe we were once so backwards. What it's even harder to believe is there are countries on our planet right now where women are treated with even less respect.

Let's climb in the time machine and visit a place where men were jerks and coffee was what made them that way.
