Boots here. There is something that is just so satisfying about going through your Sunday morning ritual. Make coffee. Get paper. Find crossword puzzle. Relax. Proceed with the day’s mind challenge. Exercise your brain muscles. It all sounds like so much fun, doesn’t it?
Are you, too, a Sunday morning crossword person? The sort of person who subscribes to the local rag just so that you can get your daily (or weekly — depending on the circulation of your paper) dose of crosswording? And if it’s not crosswording, maybe your Sunday morning is devoted to writing or reading or listening to NPR or watching the dogs sleep or writing in your journal or talking on the phone with family. Maybe it’s time to pay bills or to sort through the stack of paperwork that has grown throughout the past week. The one thing all of this Sunday morning fun has in common is coffee. Good ol’ plain and simple Joe.
Today, enjoy your coffee experience. Drink it straight up black. Dress it up with sugar and sprinkles. Vanilla syrup, lavender syrup, almond syrup. Nutmeg, cinnamon, or cocoa powder. Ristretto or long or perfectly-timed shots. Non-fat, whole, or breve. No matter how you take your coffee, take some time today to just enjoy the world. Think about the traveling that your coffee beans had to do to find its way to your kitchen.
Coffee grows all over the world. Appreciate the geography that has gone into you enjoying your favorite morning drink. When I think about drinking a beverage made from beans from Sumatra, I simply marvel at the splendor of it all. This week we are going to be talking about the different parts of the world that grows coffee.
I don’t know about you but I feel pretty lucky that we have the opportunity to partake in such a satisfying morning ritual. Don’t you agree? Have a great Sunday!
