There is something magical in our coffee rituals
Never have I ever met someone that doesn’t have a special connection to a cup of coffee.
It fuels our hopes and dreams,
it eases our stress level at work,
gives us the drive to do things better, faster,
and with more creative thoughts.
I am sure that it is not an accident that some of the most inventive
and inspiring minds have drunk a lot of coffee throughout their lives.
If you have a chance to read quotes about coffee,
you can notice that for most of those people that are quoted,
coffee plays a significant role in their lives.
That (and a cup of gourmet coffee)
inspired me to think about the emotional connection
that we have not just with coffee as a beverage,
but with our coffee rituals
as something that gives us energy and relief throughout the day.
I started asking my co-workers and friends about their coffee rituals
and I noticed that every single one of them had
a slightly different and unique answer to what does a coffee ritual means to them.
I actually discovered that there are people among us
that consider their evening coffee
as a coffee that makes their coffee ritual,
for some of them, a ritualistic coffee is the cup that they take
before any of the other teammates gets in the office.
But without exception, every person that I talked to,
had a spark in their eyes,
when they spoke about the effect that coffee has on them,
or that peace that can be initiated only by a true beginning of something so magical,
that is called a coffee ritual.
So I wanted to ask you, what does your coffee ritual look like,
how does it feel and what does it mean to you?
