Coffee and its infinite variations is a magical elixir 99.9% of health care providers drink to keep awake through the reality that is our careers. It is a rare source of hope and happiness in the clinical setting, even if it tastes like sin or looks like melena. What matters is that coffee does the job and feels like it's made from unicorn smiles and angels' wings. Fear the provider who hasn't had his or her cup of morning joe. However, note to any incoming health care professionals, like graduating nurses or medical students: never, ever order decaffeinated coffee, because, well, without the caffeine, what's the point?
