Have you ever had a bad coffee?
For coffee snobs like us it can be very hard to find a tasty, full bodied and strong cuppa especially when we aren’t close to our favorite cafe or we are out on the road passing through a small town.
The funny thing is a coffee is just hot water filtered through grounded coffee beans
So how hard could it be to get it right?
Their are two parts to getting a coffee right…
- A well trained barista
- Good quality and fresh coffee beans
The best barista would have a hard time pleasing a coffee snob if his beans are average.
An average barista would be able to ‘out do’ a coffee master if their beans were awesome.
It is impossible to make something great with the first ingredient being average or worse
This sounds obvious when we break it down but how does this idea apply to the rest of our lives?
Where in your life are you trying to make great coffee with shitty beans?
