A Hug In A Mug: Fight Autumn blues with Coffee
- 17 / 10 / 2014
The weather is inevitably getting colder and the nights darker. The long and hot summer is just a distant, sweet memory. You want nothing more than just curl up in your sofa and hide away from the world. We recommend that you do just that, with a cup of freshly brewed coffee at hand.
Can you even remember, when you last enjoyed a cup of great coffee? And with enjoyed, I don’t mean quickly sipping on one while getting ready for work in the morning or sitting stuck in traffic. I mean when did you actually unwind and focus all your senses on the steaming liquid in front of you?
For most people, coffee is nothing more than a necessity, a stimulant to help them keep going. However, in Italy – the home of the perfect espresso – drinking coffee is almost a form of art. It’s enjoyment, as well as relaxation. The Italians love to take long coffee breaks and forget about everyday stress and worries. Here the business of drinking coffee is taken seriously, indeed.
So, next time you feel overwhelmed by work-related stress and the rainy autumn weather is lowering your spirits, why don’t you just indulge with an espresso or latte? And remember to use all your senses – smell the intoxicating aroma, feast your eyes on the soft brown color and lastly, savor the smooth taste. Even though it’s just for that short period of time, you can escape the dreary reality and seize the moment, -or carpe diem, as our Italian friends would say.
