Sand and sequins: why humans love coffee

There’s something timeless about two hands sliding across the curved edges from the steaming cup of joe and raising it to fulfill an individual’s mouth. Is it possible to visualize individuals hands? Picture them now.

Is it worn and nobbled, possibly your hands from the old shoe maker taking a break from his morning’s work? Is it youthful and polished, like the hands from the protege ballerina taking every morning of her most critical recital? Is it your hands from the destitute man, just getting selected up his free coffee and bagel within the church lower the street? Coffee can be a human invention and for that reason consuming it humanizes us, despite our current devote existence.

Contemplate it. The amount of many people have performed in this particular ritual? Across continents, earnings brackets, ethnicities, and cultures there remains the universal symbol of just what a mug in hands means. What this means is pressing pause.

Yes – pressing pause despite life’s conditions. Within the finish, you’ll be able to only accomplish this much with piping hot liquid relating to the hands. You’re almost required to prevent and savor when. Even your self on-the-go thermos carriers be familiar with challenge of sipping hot coffee during brisk step.

In my opinion this is actually the magic of mugs. They fill our hands and unknowingly, some our hearts.

I’ve grown very interested in coffee mugs as well as the connected moments that go along with them. Sometimes they’re steaming quietly computer-side after i begin checking E-mails. Sometimes they’re tight in hands like me catching an infrequent sunrise (OK, unusual sunrise). Other occasions these little mugs have become an ear full over excited conversation inside a busy coffee shop.

No matter atmosphere, their silent presence boosts the scene.

I truly think each mug possesses its own personality. You think I’m crazy right? Maybe I viewed Beauty as well as the Animal one lots of occasions (inanimate objects being personified for the maaax) but I enjoy think each vessel possesses its own vibe and contribution to my sipping moments. Consequently, I’ve started just a little range of these mugs. It’s the only factor I’ve ever consistently collected and i also get pleasure from selecting my mug throughout the day.

This mug I came across inside my stocking one Christmas, filled with Christmas goodies.
