A to Z of COFFEE...

A to Z of Coffee
Just when this feeling – ‘I need Caffeine first!’ took me to the kitchen, I noticed that I was out of decoction and the milk pack remained unopened in the basket. As I sat at the table alone, waiting for the milk to boil and the decoction to be extracted, with no second thought in my head and no distraction in front of me ( which I unhesitatingly refer to a cellphone); I wondered how my life has revolved around COFFEE lately, Not just as a beverage but as a Profession which turned into Passion (usually works contrariwise for many.!) With the goal of making time, seem to pass more quickly, I started this A-Z word game! Here’s my way of COFFEE A – Z…
A – Aroma
Isn’t this the most satisfying aspect about your drink?
B – Barista 
Kudos to the person who serves coffee with utmost care and smile despite of taking all the heat and steam behind the counter.
C – Caffeine 
Am never for Decaffeinated coffee! So be it..
D – Dabara Set 
One of the best childhood memories I have had with dad; drinking coffee out of Dabara cup without mom’s knowledge was a bliss!! And yes, in many families, there is a specific age until when children are not served coffee.
E – Estate Monkeys 
Yes! Dreams do come true..
F – Filter Coffee 
Always.. Coz, I will never give up milk or sugar.
G – Green Bean 
Great cup of coffee starts right here with best quality bean.
H – Hulling 
A method of processing coffee. (Will discuss shortly…)
I – Indian Coffee House 
For many, Coffee is Culture..
J – Judgemental about taste 
It’s OKAY to be. After all, each one’s palate differs.
K – Kaffeeklatsch 
aka Coffee-Gossip. This one caught my attention. Coffee Meetings made many German Women to think-free and feel-free in the past.
L – Liberica 
The 3 main types of Coffee beans are Arabica, Robusta and Liberica.
M – Moka Pot 
One of my favourite Brewing method. Easy, economical and convenient..
N – Natural 
Always choose a Natural Beverage..
O – Origin 
Of course it matters!! How about starting KYD norms? Know Your Drink!
P – Picking 
My first live coffee picking experience was after marriage. No wonder for me, Coffee is an Emotion.
Q – Q Grader 
Can you take a guess on the number of papers one must clear to become a licensed Q Grader?
R – Roast-Master 
Coffee Roast-Masters.. Getting there slowly but surely.
S – Single Estate 
Designing a perfect blend from one set of beans is indeed a challenge.
T – Temperature 
Plays a vital role. From growing, drying , roasting, to brewing and drinking the coffee.
U – Uganda’s Robusta 
It is now bench-marked as the finest Robusta in the world. It is apparently the most desired powerful Espresso coffee capsule.
V – Vending machine 
Coffee vending machines are life saviours at times. Ain’t they?
W – Weather 
Did you know? One can predict weather with coffee. Works or not, leaves you with the cup of coffee at the end.
X – Xmas Gift 
Indian Coffee acted as the perfect Xmas Gifts for our Coffee lover friends back then in USA.
Y – Yemen 
Yemen exported its coffee through its Port-city, Mocha thus introducing ‘Mocha coffee’ to the world.
Z – Zest 
That’s how ESTATE MONKEYS LLP feels, working with and for Coffee!
Just when I successfully got to the XYZ of coffee and had my first sip; it strikes to mind that ‘A from my glossary’ goes beyond Alert, Awake and Addiction!
