I love cold coffee. Iced coffee is good. But, I am talking about coffee that isn’t cold by design. I am talking about that hard earned cold coffee.
Let me elaborate. My coffee gets cold when I am in the zone. When I am achieving my max potential. When it gets cold, next to me on my desk, I know that I am on a roll. Smashing coffee is a way for me to distract myself. A pause button in the workflow.
My coffee also goes cold when I am climbing. Hot coffee left behind in the morning is cool by the end of a good session of scaling walls. A little caffeine from some lukewarm coffee when you’re worked and tired really hits the spot.
A friendly reminder of being on the right track. I look forward to sipping that tepid, black, caffeinated sludge.
