I would venture to say that even those of you who are not huge coffee fans… Wait, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t enjoy coffee. Even though, everybody loves a good coffee aroma. It can stop you in your tracks as it fills your senses. Something about it soothes a cluttered mind. But do you know the right way to smell coffee aroma?
The Right Way to Smell and Enjoy Coffee Aroma
You may be thinking I’ve lost my mind to even think there is a “right” way to smell coffee. Maybe so. But I will say this, when I take a fresh bag of coffee beans and that fabulous coffee aroma rushes through my nose into my brain, life takes on a whole new meaning. If only for a few seconds, smelling coffee is the most relaxing thing on earth one can do.
Just what is the right way to smell the beans?
As far as I’m concerned there is only one way. Open the bag and put your nose as far into the bag as you possibly can. Now inhale a much as you can holding it as you become aware of the aroma filling your senses.
Slowly release through your mouth. Then inhale another load of the wonderful coffee aroma. Hold it for a few seconds this time before releasing making a mental note of what you are smelling.
I don’t know what it is about the aroma of fresh coffee, but I really do believe this is one of the most relaxing, mind cleansing exercises you can do.
Keep Smelling the Coffee
After you have opened the bag of beans and ground a few, be sure to keep your coffee in an airtight container. This way you can enjoy the coffee aroma every time you have a cup. It sets the stage for a better cup of coffee.
The next time you brew yourself a cup of coffee, remember, when you stop to smell the coffee, it makes life a little bit better.
