As I was finishing up this collage on my Iphone, I realized something a little funny. All of these photos unintentionally involve coffee. I also find it ironic that my boyfriend hated even the smell of coffee a year ago, and now he orders an Americano. I guess being a barista does that to you!

I love how every culture has a different ritual with coffee and a different way to socialize around it. I think that we, as Americans, rush the process too much in our fast pace life (something this country is often guilty of). Andrew recently filmed a video for Kinfolk about the syphon process and I thought it was pretty spectacular. I mean, look how much effort goes into one cup of coffee!
