THE ART OF SPECIALTY COFFEE & MINDFUL LIVING

Our senses are like a gateway into the world, says Whitman.And as we open that gateway through developing our sensory awareness, the world blossoms into a symphony of colors, scents, tastes, sounds, and touch.”
– Kenton Whitman, naturalist, writer & educator

Specialty coffee culture,

is a multi-sensual, aesthetic experience. All of our senses interact and influence our complex coffee experience. We experience the preparation and enjoyment of the coffee drink itself with not only our nose and taste-buds, but also with all our other senses. Not only do we appreciate the magic of the coffee drink in all its aspects, but we also notice and enjoy the beautiful utensils of the ritual and our pleasant surroundings. We taste, smell, see, hear and also touch.  While we prepare and enjoy our coffee drinks, we also connect with our surroundings and take in the atmosphere. We are exploring our inner and outer worlds and experience, how one influences the other.
