The Rituals that Ground Us
Many draw a sense of inner peace from the ceremonies and rituals involved in preparing a cup of coffee.
Some are drawn to the precision of the perfect cup - weighing the water and the beans, boiling the water to 96°C, timing their shots of espresso and comparing notes from previous cups.
Others are drawn to the metronome effect of drinking coffee at the same time, or in the same way, or with the same people in the same locale. In a cafe, on the trail, on the way to work or on a break between classes, the ritual of coffee provides us with a sense of control and security in a sometimes crazy world.
In the Ceremony Collection, I've chosen the coffees that I think best reflect these needs we have: coffees that both shine when we pay attention to the details, and that we can also count on to provide the same taste and aroma, day after day. I hope you'll enjoy them as I do.
