For coffee lovers around the world, the best coffee is not just a cup of hot drink. Coffee is an allegory, a symbolic narrative of human connection. Drinking coffee goes beyond the mere act of sipping. The feelings that it invokes in the coffee lover are varied. Having a cup of your favorite coffee can awaken emotions of joy, of nostalgia, of happiness, of sadness…
More than anything else, drinking coffee is a lifestyle. Observe how conversations become more precious and enjoyable when shared with a cup of coffee. Whether you are in a plush coffee shop or in the comfort of your own home, simple bonding moments become extraordinary with a cup of the best coffee around. Special moments in our lives are best shared with a good cup of coffee.
For me and my family, coffee takes on a deeper meaning. It is a means for us to connect. When somebody comes to visit, I could always expect mom to be busy in the kitchen preparing the best coffee concoction, which my aunts and uncles swear by. And sure enough, the conversations will roll on for hours – aptly punctuated with hearty laughter, wise nods or deep thoughts. It doesn’t matter whether they are silly conversations, or just catching up, or discussing important family matters, the coffee pot stands as a silent witness to all these family gatherings.
I also like to enjoy a cup of coffee when I am alone. When I am in deep thought or just wanting to relax with a good book, a cup of a freshly brewed coffee is the perfect companion for me. And what better companion could I ask for than someone who understands my troubles and don’t ask silly questions. Where others turn to alcohol to soothe their worries, I prefer drowning mine with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
Business meetings for me tend to be more productive when coffee is at my disposal. That is why I am so happy that most of my colleagues share the same opinion. Whenever we get together to discuss important business matters, chart business goals or brainstorm on new ideas, we make sure that we have the best coffee blends to suit our varied taste.
I could go on and on and not run out of reasons why I have nurtured my love affair with coffee for all these years. For me, coffee embodies life and is my way of connecting. I drink coffee to drown my tears and I drink coffee to celebrate. Catching up with friends, meeting new acquaintances, spending time with family, talking to myself – these moments are all made great when shared with a cup of the best coffee.
