New Beans

This morning I poured out the old coffee beans and filled the grinder with brand new beans. Just the smell of opening a bag of beautifully roasted coffee beans is enough to make my soul smile.

We are coffee fanatics so we use a Rancilio Sylvia to make coffee each morning. You can see the espresso coming out differently when there are brand new beans. The coffee tastes sweeter. The aroma is different. The smile on my face is brighter. The day starts off just that much better with new beans.

“Give us this day our fresh, new beans and lead us not into…”

Probably not an appropriate translation of the beloved Lord’s Prayer, yet for me, its not too far off as the Spirit often whispers through a great cup of coffee.
