This topic suggestion, What one luxury do you refuse to live without?, is from The Daily Post as part of the Post-a-day writing challenge.

Coffee is one of the wonderful luxuries that I enjoy. However, my wife often jokes about trying to make me give it up. She doesn’t like the smell or taste, especially the taste it leaves in my mouth.

However, it is very much a luxury for me. I enjoy the taste, and I enjoy the process of making coffee. Having a good blend (that is sustainably grown) that smells really nice, the rich coloured crema, the patience in waiting for the coffee to brew (my preferred style is French Press), and then enjoying the brewed coffee.

What’s one luxury you refuse to live without?
