Pick the apples. Wash the apples. Chop the apples into a mash. Crush that apple mash to pump out the juice in a press. Boil the apple juice. Jar the apple cider. Drink the apple cider.

Coffee tingles the senses. Before you even drink it, you smell it and smell the day’s morning or your local shop or a pot brewing while you’re getting ready.
