Slow Drip


Instant coffee is about as satisfying as a Tweet; it can be done and consumed quickly but is far less enjoyable than the process of making the coffee itself.

Slow drip coffee requires more work and patience than instant coffee, including preparing hot water, grinding the coffee beans, cleaning the coffee pot, finding a fresh filter, and using a measuring tool (e.g. spoon) to scoop just the right amount.

The key to filtering coffee is taking a gradual, incremental pouring approach.  Rather than dumping all the water at once, you want to ensure each little ground gets soaked a few times upon each pour.

The magic of slow drip is watching the coffee brew and appreciating all the subtle components and steps of work you did to make it happen.  Yes, it’s easy to do, but it’s still harder than pushing a button or stirring granules in a cup.

Some things just feel better and taste better because of the extra effort. Slow drip coffee is one of them.

If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:

1. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
2. Read more. Try Audible free and experience the world's largest library of audiobooks.
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
