Many of our stories or themes here at Rising Pyramid revolve around the concept of coffee. Sunday Morning Coffee has become one of our most popular features, and it is no surprise to me that when thinking of what to write for this week, coffee came to mind.
What makes coffee (insert “tea” for those anti-cocoa breeds) so great in today’s society is that there is an “art” (zen-like, if you will) of picking out the beans, grinding them, choosing a filter, decided how to prepare it, and finding your own unique way to enjoy the cup of goodness.
I’ll admit that when I’m making my twice daily cup of joe, I have to search for “my” mug. It has to be the tall one with the special handle. Why? I feel it makes my coffee experience better and more enjoyable. Does it really? That’s up for debate That’s why this image (original source: unknown) struck me yesterday:
In my analogy, however, I view the mugs as businesses, industries corporations, or roles we best align to in our quest for “coffee” – social improvement. We are all after the same sort of satisfaction, and that needs to be the driving force – not the size or fanciness of our coffee mugs.
