This is one thing that provides some sort of continuation or stability when going through change: coffee.

I drink it at home and at the university. When we have a break, we go for coffee. We drink coffee in church. My friends and I drink coffee when we are together. My mother helped me with moving; the first thing we did when we met every day was having a cup of coffee. When we had a break, we had coffee. If it didn’t keep her awake at night, we might even end the day with a cuppa. When the family meet, we have coffee well into the night.

I’m a coffee drinker, and along with church, it’s one of the few natural constants and stabilisers in my life. A small thing that becomes important during times of change.

There is a tradition with tea in England and a saying that having a cup of tea “would be the only civilized thing to do.” I have a sense that that is how Danes think of coffee.
