The contrast can be summed up in a sip.
Country coffee never changes, long burnt and bitter, consumed with tense smiles and ritual conversations, customs of conformity and stagnation.
Urban coffee, consumed in conversation and not, flavored and not, sweet or strong or both, is vibrant, tasting richly of ideas, growth and hope.

Terrific concept, a view that I’d argue with of course, but I just love what you did with this.
What a unique and strange way to plunge into this theme: does a country coffee drinker drink the said cup of coffee more slowly? An urban consumer less appreciatively? All sorts of things to ponder from this slick, compressed story. Loved it, Kim!
Thanks, Susan and Robert!
Susan, glad you liked the idea, and I’m sure there are other equally valid conclusions. :)
Robert, pacing is an interesting question! You’ve left me something to ponder…
Love the concept. I think you could play, too, with the way the coffee is brewed.
Glad you liked it. Thanks for the comment and the great idea!
Fabulous twist on the theme. And as an avid coffee drinker from a family of like, you might be on to something. I’ve read this thrice, and I’m still thinking on it. Peace…
What a great idea! I love comparing the coffee to the environment.
Thanks Linda and ganymeder! Glad you liked it. Coffee is very inspiring to me. :)
Having lived in both worlds, I could not agree more. Excellent approach to the theme.
Thanks very much, Al. Glad you agree!
