I knew who Shimon Gershon was long before he knew me.

He was a star football (soccer) player in Israel for many years, spending most of his career at Hapoel Tel Aviv, following by a move to Beitar Jerusalem.

While still playing football, he was infected by the music bug and began recording catchy songs.

In addition to this, he is also a best-selling writer of books for children.

I met him when he became the owner of my favorite coffee house, The Arrcafe in Ramat Hahayal. I even wrote a book about it.

We became friendly. After all, I’m one of his most loyal customers.

But yesterday was special. I saw Shimon behind the coffee machine. “What are you doing?” I asked him. “Are you short on labor?”

“No”, he answered. “I am finally learning to prepare coffee at my own coffeehouse.”

I figured that I had chanced on a historic moment. “Make me a coffee”, I said.

“Here’s the deal”, he said. “I’ll make you a coffee, but no complaining. Good, bad whatever, it’s on the house. But the deal is you drink the whole cup.”

I’m always ready for an adventure. Especially when it involves a free cup of coffee.

He toiled.

He poured.

And out it came.

Perhaps not the loveliest coffee in the world.

But still….

I fulfilled my part of the bargain.

It was very good coffee, for a novice, I must say.

And besides, Shimon made it for me!
