There's Water in my Coffee!

While sipping my morning coffee, I suddenly realized that the water in my coffee was far greater than the 16 ounces from the tap. There are gallons and gallons and gallons of water in my porcelain mug. The water footprint of my coffee begins far away on a plantation with the nurturing and growing of the delicious crop, that is eventually harvested, roasted, traded, and eventually brewed. The stock of my coffee suddenly rose when I grasped the true value of my morning ritual.
