2011 has begun on a great note. I am actually enjoying every bit of this year. Notable is my new addiction to Dancing Latte from a coffee house here in Nairobi. The presentation of this coffee accompanied with a ginger nut cookie has me thinking perhaps I should take on the job as Gibson’s coffee house spokeswoman.
All this coffee addiction after my first love chocolate got me on a coffee quest. I know it sounds quite the task to take on but for what it’s worth I guess I love knowledge to bits.
One fine evening I was privileged to meet with a coffee farmer. I always knew that brewed coffee was better than instant coffee but hearing the gentleman explain it made more sense. I know you are almost wondering what love has got to do with coffee.
Coffee, that is good coffee has to be brewed. The beans are ground and mixed with hot water to extract the flavor. Well what of love? To enjoy the benefits of a great loving fulfilling relationship you ought to be ready for the process. Tough conditions in the relationship serve as pointers of what your loved one is willing to endure to see the relationship work. When you really love someone you take on the whole person; the good and the bad, their successes and their failures, their strength and their weakness. Love is a wonderful feeling, yet it calls for work; lots of brewing to attain its flavor.
Instant coffee is easy to make and requires no special skill. Just add boiling water and you have your instant coffee. I believe I’m worth more and need more than instant coffee kind of approach to love. I definitely seek a relationship which my partner has to put more of their time and effort to. As I work at being a great lady I sure hope that I will be willing to work at having a great relationship because believe you me brewed coffee is more flavored than instant coffee. Indeed love ain’t no instant coffee.
