a slice of heaven

What is it about a hot, steaming big mug of coffee? It's comforting, warm, welcoming, sustaining, reviving, smells good, looks good, tastes good. When I was visiting Salzburg Austria with my sister and wife one time, I had a Viennese caffe mit schlagoober- that is, a latte with whipped cream. I was tired and worn out from traveling and walking and looking at castles, churches and museums. But then a man with a white shirt and a black vest brought me the most lovely looking latte I'd seen, and it was a slice of heaven- home away from home on the other side of planet earth.
