I am not a regular jogger but I do love waking up early to enjoy the freshness of the morning and to touch the glittering cold drops of dew resting on green leaves. I would love to share an experience- Around three days back, my friend and I decided to do a jogging session together at the community park’s jogging tracks. I was supposed to meet her at 6:00 AM. So, I set out from home, somewhat sleepy but while I was sluggishly walking towards the park, something perked up my mood all of a sudden! As I crossed the houses and the gates, taking a turn, a smell that came from a house had me stuck in my tracks! It was so lively and zesty that I literally stopped to fill it within myself for a few minutes, without bothering about my poor friend waiting in the park! The timing was perfect too! This very smell can literally steal your heart in early mornings and late evenings making you leave everything in the world to enjoy long reveries in its unparalleled aroma. No points for guessing- I am talking about the smell of roasting coffee beans! It gives a reboot to all the bored souls including those who suffer from exhaustion burn-outs and depression, making them dance with a cuppa in hand!
Usually, most of us use instant coffee powder to save on time and effort but if you really wish to enjoy the real flavor of coffee, you will have to take a bit of pain and do some effort and roast them to get the desired effect. The aroma is not only intoxicating but is also very soothing. It can calm down tired brains, irritable moods and stressed nerves within minutes, perking up the mood for better. Also, yes! It is a mild form of aphrodisiac as well!
The tantalizing whiff of fresh coffee mingled in the gentle air of early morning just made my day! I stood glued to my place for some moments inhaling and relishing the redolence. So, you can easily guess my next purchase- a bag of coffee beans to roast at home!
