To wake up in the morning just in time to smell the aroma of a freshly brewed hot coffee coming through the kitchen is something I enjoy immensely. With each sip the dark liquid fills my body with pleasant warmth and I feel life awakens inside of me ... I am in my element, new, fresh, ready to talk, excited to meet the world - what a moment, what a beginning, what a delight!
If everything in my day goes wrong, a cup of homemade coffee in the morning is something that always goes right.
But what I haven't been lucky to have yet drank was this unique, exotic Kopi Luwak; the favorite coffee of Jack Nicholson's character in The Bucket List, the beans of which are collected from cat poops.
Not that it was a big deal to me as you may guess as it was for my husband, but somehow we both were hooked on trying it one day. The problem was because of the small production quantity and the high cost, there have been lots of imitations of the civet coffee, so we thought we would wait until we visit... perhaps...mmm... Indonesia and try the original one...
The other day a friend of mine called to say she had something special for us. To make the long story short, the company she is working with has started to distribute Kopi Luwak in the city. Thinking of us, "the coffee snobs", she knew we will be thrilled to try it. So thanks to Teddy, we just had our first Luwak as an espresso and we have just crossed the Luwak coffee tasting off of our own bucket list. Smooth, low in acid, earthy taste and an adventurous aura...
To me, though, it really doesn't matter if I drink an expensive coffee or a simple one made with love. What I truly adore about it is that each cup of coffee makes me pause, sit down and enjoy this pleasant moment with my full attention, smelling the aroma, diving in the color, relishing the flavour... I love how coffee can connect friends and provide a special moment of simple pleasure.
Should we meet up for a cup of coffee and a piece of homemade coffee cake?
