Coffee is absolutely necessary.
Why? I'm glad you asked. Coffee is like alcohol for the underaged. It brings us together. We have deep conversations over it. We say more than we wish we did as we drink it (that may be all the time, but for the sake of making my point I'll continue). We can customize it using words like "skinny" and "dry." Most importantly, it keeps us awake and sparks the imagination. If you are over 21, I wouldn't suggest writing down your thoughts as you drink an alcoholic beverage...you'll probably regret it later. Stick with coffee. And so there it is. The reasons why you should drive in the rain with a cup of coffee in your hand.
