Why Grounds & Blends

Thoughts from a Coffee Cup

I’m thinking back to a time when I was a perfect coffee bean. The hands that picked me marveled at my perfection and dreamed about my potential. I was dried, roasted and ground up. I wonder many times about the purpose of the process? Why did I not just stay a perfect coffee bean?

So here I am, a cup emanating fragrant steam, enhanced by the presence of all the other perfect beans, dried, roasted and ground up together.  A little bit of me and them in a cup. Together we have a fragrance, taste and purpose that is richer than if we were alone.

We are all just Grounds&Blends.  Together we have purpose. Together we are whole.
