    Acceptable? Acceptable?

    Try laudable. Noble. Commendable. Beneficent. Natural. Good. Just. Righteous.

    Dark roast, black, thank you very much.

    The phrase “Why Coffee Makes Our Life Better” has at least one too many words. The why is superfluous.  I’d argue that better is superfluous. Coffee makes life.

    Even though I do not drink coffee (never have, but I drink strong black tea by the gallon), I always enjoy listening to you ladies.

    My late mother often told the story of how she first started drinking coffee in her first after-college job. It was in a military weapons research lab just after World War II, and as the only woman in the lab, she was expected to make the coffee each morning. She found the aroma so attractive she decided to start drinking the stuff. [Her degree was in Home Economics, but was a Bachelor of Science because she had taken a bunch of chemistry classes.]
