I am in Love with Coffee, it is not so much the coffee which without saying needs to be great, I just love everything about coffee, the smell, the beans, the roasting process, and what I love most of all is how it has its own language.
Is there a language called coffee?? Absolutely.!! Just think, how many times do you, if you are a coffee drinker go for a coffee, either to take time out for yourself, meet for a meeting, catch up with friends or even date over coffee. I love the fact that no matter what language you speak there is something about coffee that is so deliciously universal. Over the years I have really got to appreciate coffee. I guess being on my third cafe would have something to do with that. There is something about being part of the process from roasting the coffee to actually drinking it. We have been doing some experimentation around taste. With the belief that one needs to rest the coffee, we used to store our coffee for 5 days prior its usage. One morning, as most things sometimes happen by accident, we picked up the “wrong” container, the one that was actually roasted that morning. And OMG we thought we were drinking a total different coffee. It was an amazing smooth, creamy coffee, all the way to the bottom of the cup… It was ‘discovered’ that this was today’s roast we were drinking. Well needless to say that we have not looked back.
Because coffee speaks so many language I decided to set up a coffee group where we come together and discuss philosophical topics whilst drinking coffee. The group fascinates me, because the common theme is that we all like coffee, and we all like to have interesting conversations whilst drinking coffee. I named it the coffee philosophers group, which is lodged in a place called “meetups” Meetups is an amazing concept. If you think there is nothing to do in your city.. well think again. If you seriously wanted to be involved in all sort of activities than Meetup is the place for you…There are groups for foodies, sporties and etc etc etc… You would barely have time to scratch yourself if you were to attend all of them.
So the group draws an interesting mix of people from all walks of life, and this is where it is interesting because no one can talk ‘shop’. So again in this particular instance it is the coffee that brings people together.
Coffee must be part of that great equation that magic happens when the right people connect together over a great cup of coffee.
Enjoy you week, and enjoy your coffee. Make sure it is a good one, as life is too short to drink bad coffee.
