“Never Underestimate the Importance of Being Properly Caffeinated.” (unknown).
A cup of coffee, what a special and unique thing. It’s aroma, flavour, aftertaste. Waking up in the morning and waiting for the pleasure of that aroma filling the room, is spellbinding. And adding to that pleasure, the joy of drinking that cup of coffee is sublime. A liquid stimulant, which has become a prized commodity in our modern world. Prepared differently in various parts of the world, which one can drink it on its own or mixed with sugar and/or milk to dwell in the depths of taste and aroma.
A good night sleep, a beautiful morning, and a fresh cup of homemade coffee. Nothing can beat that to make you feel good, up and running. To some, without coffee, their day doesn’t start (and doesn’t end as well, sometimes). Coffee is not only limited to the colder parts of the world but even popular to the hottest parts of the Middle East and Africa as well. An office is considered incomplete without coffee and coffee breaks, and it is fair to say that this craving has taken over the world. People used to make coffee manually but with the arrival of technology, coffee making machines have made this task even easier. A cup of coffee with the essential factors of Aroma, Body, Flavor and the Aftertaste, is something one always wants.
To some people, coffee is about ethical practices, striving for the highest quality and perfection. It’s a journey. Some people care about it so much that they even know what farm their coffee came from, who is the farmer, how it was grown, processed, who bought and imported it, who roasted it, how it was roasted, where it roasted and it all leads up to the moment of opening that coffee bag, grinding some beans and making all these variables come together to make a great cup of coffee. Some consider coffee better than the finest, most expensive wines or single barrel whiskeys.
As the time progresses, life is becoming faster. People have lesser time even for their daily tasks. Gone are the days when one used to make coffee the old-fashioned way. These days we are used to seeing coffee made almost as if by magic. Domestic drip coffee makers for the home are push-button efficient and provide you with a cup of coffee instantly.
Coffee has become an essential part of our mornings and days. It is a tradition, a passion and joy. Imagine yourself feeling tired and drained at your apartment, a cup of coffee made from the chosen coffee beans, with the best drip coffee maker for an apartment, is the best thing you can have at that moment. Especially when you don’t have the energy to get up, go outside and go to the corner, stand in the queue to get a cup of coffee. Comparing to that hassle, a homemade cup of coffee feels priceless.
