Coffee is art…

Richcoffee

Coffee is art.  The foam on a cappuccino has to look and feel right.  The aroma of the espresso beans as they are ground and pressed through with water just the right temperature delight.  The first sip and combination of foam and coffee and milk awaken.  I love coffee.  But, I also love making coffee my own.  I love seeing a well-trained barista steam away.  This is art.  It is a craft that speaks to the soul and this kind of activity makes God smile.  Now, the caffeine helps, too.  However, it is more than that.  Just like a good wine is more than its alcohol content.

    You are certainly a man who enjoys his coffee, but……..

    “I love seeing a well-trained barista steam away.”

    It’s like a bad romance novel 🙂

    I guess it all depends on the Barista whose “steaming”.

    Maybe I will get Heather to make me a coffee later on tonight 😉 😉 nudge nudge

    See ya Thursday…..but no coffee for you.

  13. Amen, brother. I’ve been brewing my own for a few months now, and I’ll never go back. Starbucks is just so…wrong any more.
    BTW, I start up again officially March 30, the week after Easter. Can’t wait. Thanks for the chat the other night.
