Coffee Lover

"He could list off the best coffee grinder brands in his sleep. He could talk origins and roasting times and temperatures. He could make the best cup of coffee you'd ever tasted in your whole life. But when you asked him what his favorite was, you know what he'd say?" 

"What, Mom?" 

"He'd say, 'oh, no, I don't drink coffee. Never really liked it all that much. Just learned how to make it on account of my wife. She's a real coffee nut.'" 

"I guess that's the meaning of true love, then, huh?" 

"I guess so. Behind every successful woman is a man who makes her coffee."
