When I feel like this (oh, life is so hard).
I translate my body is asking for some happiness injection. Gentle sugar intake. I barely use sugar when I drink coffee since I want to enjoy pure flavor and taste of coffee beans but sometimes what you need is good quality sugar and happy cow cream.
Inner beauty is important but outer beauty is also important. I don’t know what it is but I have this huge love for mason jars. Whatever you put in, they all look lovely. I even put my quinoa salad in one of my mason jars and bring it as my lunch. Anyhow, coffee also looks good in that.
I like to use rock sugar or raw sugar because it taste milder and rounder than refined sugar, to me anyways. Sometimes all you need is to take extra few minutes to grind beans, boil the water, and inhale fantastic coffee aroma while pouring water over the coffee. Your life would be so much better after that. It is sort of like meditating.
Some tips on making this coffee…use good quality coffee. I tend to like higher acidity beans from Africa. Use good quality sugar and cream, this makes so much difference. You can also add vanilla beans (real) to ground beans to it. Don’t rush to do anything. Please make sure to taste it.
