My primary goal when drinking coffee is to help me unwind (might be an oxymoron to some), relax, clear my thoughts, of reflect on something (God, life, family, etc.).  Music has a great way of opening our heart and mind to things we normally wouldn’t think about. Below are some of the music I enjoy listening to when enjoying my coffee.
