2021-01-28: Magical Bean Juice

I started drinking coffee a few years ago. On a friend's recommendation, I bought a french press, and ground my beans each day. It makes a big difference.

There's a ritual to it: heat the water, grind the beans, fill the french press. Wait four minutes. Pour the coffee, stir in the half-and-half, let it cool for a few minutes. Drink. Try to drink only one cup each day.

Rituals like that are valuable to me. Same with listening to vinyl. I savor things that help me focus. It takes anxiety and noise out of my day, and replaces it with calm and routine.
