Coffee: The Metaphor for Life

coffee beans

The most important thing in brewing a good cup of pour over coffee is the grind size.

If the grind is too fine, if you let too much of the small stuff in, you’re left with a bitter aftertaste.

On the other hand, if we ignore the big picture stuff, if we don’t cherish or appreciate the big things, we miss a lot of the stuff that makes a life worth living.

As with everything, it’s all about balance. That’s how you make a good cup of coffee.
