Coffee and Mental Health

Posted by Erin Fischer on

I have a confession to make, I have never been a coffee drinker and honestly, it’s only since working for Barty that I have slowly gotten a taste for it, but it has to be the Peruvian Decaf blend (I joke we should rename it the Erin blend).

One of my first experiences with coffee was having a cappuccino with my dad and feeling sick after it due to the milk (I’m dairy intolerant which is accumulative, so I have never been a big dairy person) and also on edge due to the caffeine.
