I will have a cup of coffee at least three times each day you see, but I am also quite obsessive in how I go about doing it. If I am sitting down to watch a movie with a friend, or when I am settling down to do some work, I just can not operate till I get my cuppa. It can make any time seem better, and it is for this reason that I simply don’t feel like a minute is complete until there is a cup of coffee there. If you’re still fighting to associate with that feeling however, here is a little ode to coffee which should help to get you on board.
I’m not referring to the Shaolin style enlightment, but instead the enlightenment in the renaissance feel that we associate with Da Vinci and technological invention.
Why is this true? You return in the middle ages, those living in Europe were not able to drink normal water since it was riddled to illness and this lead to just 1 solution – drinking beer so the alcohol could disinfect the water.
That of course lead to individuals being somewhat absent minded lots of time and getting into plenty of fights – in short it was not conducive to the development of society en-mass.
Enter hot beverages like coffee and tea, however, and suddenly not everyone is spending their whole time in the bar fighting, but instead we are in coffee shops discussing philosophy and politics. Caffeine is not only better for you than alcohol, it is a nootropic that may make you smarter – no wonder society began progressing!
Thanks to the internet and mobile computing, more and more people are taking into the coffee shops once more to work and chat and this is where all the hip young start-ups are starting. And if you are still stuck in a workplace? I imagine that you utilize the stimulating power of coffee to help you really get there also.
But even when we are not changing the world, coffee is still a terrific social lubricant. Can the TV show ‘Friends’ even exist if it was not for coffee? When you are getting Melbourne Bee Removal? When you’re by yourself? Then coffee is your ultimate comfort that will not allow you to gain weight and that’s incredibly soothing as a result of the heat and creaminess.
Happy to stay with filter coffee? Fine, but otherwise there is cappuccino, latte, chi latte… the choices are endless.
