The brewing aroma of the coffee beans twirled around me like springing chimes of Victorian flutes, as I tried to wake up, yawningly at the rise of the daybreak. I put off the exasperating feeling of clamor, put off the nasty howling of the alarm clock and swept my fingers on the screen of the cellphone, to check the date.
Time really seems to fly harder these days, leaving you baffled of how instilled you have been in your thoughts, waiting for miracles to occur some day and the never ending labors to vanish forever. Vanish to a land of peace and stillness, a place where only quietude exists.
Vanishing in thin air and find yourself in the most blissful corner of the planet, the coffee shop, Pattinson's in Chats wood, Sydney, where I've worked all life.
Well, that might be as good as a dream and better to start the day before it's too late, I thought. I steered my way to get ready for office, drinking the early morning coffee made by Dad. Nothing kick starts a day better than a warm mug of mocha. And, nothing can be more invigorating than sipping hot petals of coffee on a beautiful December day.
A warm cup of coffee, I saw, was almost in almost every hand in the bus. With noses tucked up in books and Kindle apps, every reader seemed to be entranced in the magical world of coffee and books. As I sat nestled in the bus, I skimmed the Google reading about the origin and the discovery of coffee.
"Who discovered coffee? And how did it originate?” the questions hovered around me, swirling like whorls of magic climbers and fantasy roots. Gifted with the answer, I opened my eyes, seeing myself stumble in the land of imagination, the first house of coffee; Ethiopia. I found a dumbfounded goat herder known as Kaldi watching his goats devour the enchanted red berries of Coffee Arabica, a coffee tree.
Stunned by the behavior of his goats, he filled his mouth, tasting the berries curiously. Bewildered by the astonishingly marvelous taste, like the taste of Heaven, it seemed anything but too good to be real. He stuffed some more of the magical berries until he believed them to be something more than a raveling of his mind. The young shepherd, fogged by the mystic taste of the berries of the coffee tree, decided to witness them to the local priests.
The priests, stupefied by the wonder of the ethereal taste of the coffee beans, decided the beans to be perished as they felt themselves being hoodwinked by the satanic pleasure-some taste of the coffee berries.
