Coffee. One of life’s little pleasures. And necessities.
I love watching videos of how things work. I remember when I was young and I watched how crayons were poured and boxed on an assembly line. Some might say that watching this how-it-works video takes away the magic of the crayon that I am holding in my hand. But not for me. The true magic for me is watching how some genius figured out a way to deliver colored wax crayons to the masses at such an affordable price. Thank you to the good folk that made this possible.
And I want to give a shout out to those who mastered how to bring shots of espresso to the huddled masses. Take the design of La Marzocco espresso machines. Simply elegant and consistent. Form and function. Purpose and beauty. Yummy and electrifying.
Espresso: happiness and comfort in a shot glass.
This time lapse film of a shot of espresso being pulled is beautiful. If you let your imagination go, it looks like a golden exotic tree swaying in the wind.
Enjoy your morning and carry this visual pleasure into your day. There are so many great things about coffee:
- its caffeinated effects
- its flavor
- its pleasurable morning ritual
- its body
- its companion-ability
- its invitation to experiment with brewing methods
- its history and culture
- its happy-ifying effects
