Here we are in 2020, and our year started off with basically the whole world getting put on hold.
Brewing coffee at home is really going viral right now.
No one would’ve expected this, but here we are in some crazy and strange times. Almost anyone who reads this at the beginning of April as I’m writing it feels the chaos in the atmosphere I’m sure. Maybe by now you’re feeling some cabin fever too… I know I am!
So in this short article I just want to provide some real talk, encouragement, and tips for making coffee at home.
There’s never been a better time to make coffee at home than now, during the coronavirus craziness!
I think if there was a soundtrack to these times, this song would be it…
Some Real Talk
Alright first off, I’ve never seen so much fear in my life all across the earth.
It seems surreal to me. People are in utter panic over this virus. The news headlines in my Google news feed mostly read apocalyptic, doomsday oriented, fear-mongering titles, touting an upcoming economic collapse and that people will die all over the earth. Yes, some people have died from coronavirus.
But this virus is not the end of the world, and it will not cause the world economy to collapse. Fear NOT!
Not only that, but coronavirus has a mortality rate of 1% or thereabouts. That means that there’s more than a 98% survival rate. Also, bear in mind this is before we have any kind of antibody, cure, or vaccine.
I have no idea how we’ll look back on this time, but it will certainly be a time that we’ll never forget.
To be honest, I’m getting really tired of reading fear-mongering and speculation on the news that sometimes ends up being wrong anyway.
The fact of the matter is, while coronavirus is a serious issue, if you simply look at the facts it’s not as dangerous as the media is portraying it to be.
It is dangerous to the elderly and people who have serious, severe pre-existing health conditions yes. But for most of the population it’s not as dangerous as the media is trying to scare us into.
Fear is your enemy. It’s a bigger pandemic than coronavirus.
Fear, worry and anxiety will not do you any good. Use wisdom of course, that’s important, but don’t walk in fear.
Whatever your opinion is about the coronavirus and these tragic times we are in, it’s our job to ourselves and society to have peace. Take a deep breath and just say to yourself, “Everything is going to be ok.”
Because it is going to be ok.
Being a Christian, I take the advice to not be afraid seriously. One of the most repeated statements in the Bible is, “Fear not!”. Jesus says many times that He brings peace, and that is what I hold onto in these times.
Take this time and make it valuable. You can accomplish so many things during this time to stay at home. You can spend more time with family, learn new skills, read, watch movies, work on unfinished projects at home, and so many other things.
Make Some Social Distancing Flavored Coffee!
One of the things you can do when you’re socially distanced is by making social distancing flavored coffee!
Also known as brewing coffee at home…
I have many articles on the site about coffee makers and methods to brew coffee at home, also tips and tricks to make your coffee the best it can be.
I also have written an article with 4 reasons to make coffee at home, and the coronavirus lock down would definitely be the 5th reason on the list if I were to add another one!
Ok enough link sharing. But seriously, make some coffee while you’re at home, and pleeeease make it good!
Smile, Make Good Coffee, Have A Great Day, Repeat
There has never been a better time to hone in on your home-brewed coffee skills!
So brew coffee by the gallon! Just kidding don’t brew it by the gallon. Brew 10 gallons at a time. And it’s probably better to stock up on coffee than toilet paper.
That’s all I have for this short snippet of an article. So please stay safe, do not be afraid, spend some quality time with family, smile, and enjoy your coffee.
