Why just "national" or "international?" Let's celebrate coffee all over the universe.
We start with Maragogypé,
whose bean is like a thumb,
and move to Costa Rican Pea,
and potent smallness sum.
Your cup of the best will make you feel blest,
Jamaican Blue Mountain bean.
Your tongue and its taste is coffee's great test
when making your cup fully preen.
If you have no taste, then your coffee a-pace
may be purchased where a burger's a buck,
but if you have a love for your coffee, your place
have baristas, whose shirts gently tuck.
The music of peace can bring hope and release,
while you sip on your cup and just melt
into sofa and fleece, that your dreams may increase
into Joy, that you know must be telt.
I've a latté to ask, that my cup-sipping task
may be wondrously, fully enjoyed.
Have you sweet by the cask? I'd in Stevia bask,
that your shop may stay often employed.
