One of the perks of working from home is that I now have the ability to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee sipped slowly from my favorite mug! I no longer have to fill a travel mug and hope that it stays hot for when I arrived in the office.
I find that while sipping freshly brewed coffee and gazing out the kitchen window my mind is clear which allows for inspirational thoughts of thankfulness and gratitude and of course, great ideas start with good coffee!
It’s what gets the day started for many people. They can’t feel fully awake or alert without a warm cup of Joe. Many people feed that daily habit with a visit to a local coffee shop or a chain. But many more people make their own cup at home, with varying results. That’s why it’s important to figure out how you can do that coffee making better (and maybe just skip some of those coffee house visits too).
There’s actually one ingredient that makes coffee great, and that’s, of course, coffee. But too many people think that every bean is created the same, but that’s not true. The beans that are ground, for example, are not nearly as fresh as those that you buy whole—so that’s your first to-do. Buy the beans, and buy them as freshly roasted as possible. What else works?
