My relationships with coffee are the longest and the sweetest.
I used to drink coffee 3-4 time a day, at home, on a go, in the office, back at home.
Now I drink it 3-4 times a month at home, slowly, indulging in every sip.
It became more of the ritual, it's a "Me" time.
Coffee beans go into the grinder and I crank it rhythmically a few times until beans are ground. That motion is the best stress "remedy" for me.
Then I empty the coffee into a coffee pot, the old fashioned one, pour hot water over it and put on the stove. I stir it until froth starts to raise and then I lift the pot from the heat.
I add a pinch of high quality salt, and pour it in a coffee cup. Coffee aroma fills the kitchen, I close my eyes and take a deep breath. Mmmm. I am in paradise!
Do you have a "Me" time? How do you like to spend it?
Until next time,
