a letter from coffee
Hello dear coffee drinking person, can we talk ?
It’s been a while since I’m on the road. It took a lot of hands, a lot of labour, and whole lot of nature so I can spend that peaceful moment here with you.
Everyone tried really hard to make everything in their best, just so we can share this moment.
All that energy that was put in and on me, will go through you and hopefully end where you want it to end.
Maybe on the playground playing with your kids. Or in the library helping you to understand interesting but complicated things.
My DNA is complicated, I’m rich in acids, my water activity and moisture level is complex, proteins, lipids, aminos and everything is changing a lot, especially after that long road through different climate changes, where I was piled up in containers, traveling around the globe, just to find you.
I come from a big family, and we all grew and grow in different countries and were all different. One million things added up made us the complicated organic beans we are.
A bit like you.
I don’t know if you remember but that was once the reason we felt in love with each other, because we were both so interesting for each other.
The way you drink us is quite diverse and sometimes complicated.
You showed us a way of looking at us, that brings out the best of us. Sometimes it’s just us, another time we add milk and on fancy days I swim with martini in a nice glass, just so you can dance on the dancefloor. We appreciate each other in numerous occasions, and we found our ways. It’s crazy but for years now, we start nearly every day together, sometimes where even the only thing we both can stand.
We need each other, as much as we love each other.
Please don’t harm us by saying I’m to this or to that. We accept each other as wonderful and diverse organic systems and were perfectly fine the way we are.
Sincerely, your coffee
