Trust our Instincts or Rely on Knowledge and Data?

Tuning into our physical sensations and gut instincts will help us in making the right decisions, not only when preparing coffee. Let’s not ignore what our body is trying to tell us.

Let’s not just follow recipes, without seeing, touching, tasting, listening and smelling.

But let’s keep in mind that our senses and intuition are no substitutes for knowledge, study and experience. The former depends on the latter. If we want to be able to make music with heart and soul, we first have to learn how to read notes and rhythms and we need to get to know the instruments and ourselves.

Love is like playing the piano. First, you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart. -Unknown

Preparing coffee is love… and it’s like playing the piano.

Instinctive decision making requires experience, education, passion and most of all understanding. As soon as we understand an artwork, we are also able to create it with our heart and soul.

In his wonderful book, Blink, Malcolm Gladwell beautifully states:

“The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding. We are swimming in the former. We are desperately lacking in the latter.”

“Balance Is Not Something You Find, It’s Something You Create” – Jana Kingsford

Coffee life

When preparing our coffee drinks, we often try to avoid using damaged or over-roasted coffee beans.

Are damaged beans undesirable? Don’t we need them as well to create balanced and interesting coffee drinks?

LIFE IS LIKE RIDING A BICYCLE – IN ORDER TO KEEP YOUR BALANCE, YOU MUST KEEP MOVING. – ALBERT EINSTEIN

Skillful masters of life keep moving forward, no matter how good or bad their circumstances are. They are attentive and notice the bitter ‘beans’ of life.  At the same time, they keep in mind that interesting, memorable and balanced moments develop from a kaleidoscope of flavours. Opposites attract each other and depend on each other. Just as in everyday life, bitter ‘beans’ are needed to create a balanced and meaningful life.

Creative baristas turn negatives into positives. They have the ability to imagine the hidden beauty of damaged coffee beans. Instead of focusing on the damaged and bitter moments of life, they imagine and create enjoyable coffee moments – always.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    In cɑse you are the type ߋf one that is less than thrilled with the prospect of working in the identical workplace, day
    after day, eliminating this type of routine is without doubt one of thе most imрortant highlights that yⲟu can oƄtain from freelаncing.
    Once you һire yourself out as a fгеeⅼancer, each and every job
    task that you take on wіlⅼ likely ƅe a new adventuгe.
    Not solely wiⅼl the work environment range, but you will also have
    the opportunity to satisfy many extгa fascinating people.
    This faϲtor alone is one of the most important the
    explanatіon why many paralegals favor freelancing over committing themselves
    to 1 particular workpⅼɑce.
