My brain is always spinning with ideas. Probably a little too fast and a little too often, but that’s where yoga comes in to shut it off every now and then. Anyway, nearly every week I seem to find a new hobby, the latest being DIY coffee roasting. The key idea? One day I’ll open up a coffee shop. I’ll live out my culinary dreams of healthy foods and never-ending hummus. And my pastry aspirations, too. I’ll fill rustic tin trays with decorated carrot cake and bittersweet chocolates, so utterly sinful but worth every last bite. I’ll spin my favorite tunes and hang art and photos on the wall, and do all the other secret things to make this coffee shop special. One day.
Who knows if I’ll ever launch this vision. At this young age in my life, I don’t really care. Have dreams, or live a motionless, insipid life. What I do care about is learning and exploring my attainable interests. And playing with coffee to fill my kitchen with toasty, sense-heightening smells. For me, food experiments are almost always fun, and that’s what life should be about. Fun.

Shake, shake it time.
Crunch and taste time.
