It’s 8:30 am and I’m just sitting down at my computer after putting in a long night of working on deadlines. Shaking off the fatigue of the morning is strengthened by the aroma of my pot of coffee brewing. Then, when that first sip of gourmet coffee hits my lips, I’m just about ready to begin the day I’m blessed with. Whether you enjoy an espresso, café au lait, or even just black, almost everyone enjoys a morning cup of joe, but especially those of us in the digital marketing arena. Working till 4am, getting those deadlines completed are helped with the aid of our caffeinated nectar. This morning tradition in which many web geeks indulge provides a lot of important benefits (hurray!). See which awesome attributes make coffee the best for working professionals.
Studies have shown that coffee has some health benefits, hurray! It protects against Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease including liver cancer. And the one fact I definitely knew…it improves cognitive function (please don’t talk to me before I’ve had my first cup, or you will receive unintelligible babble) and decreases the risk factors for depression.
That Wonderful Coffee Aroma
Coffee has an incredible smell. Brewing a morning pot of coffee offers a beautiful aroma that calls to anyone who smells it. Its scent lets everyone know that a warm cup is just minutes away, ready to make one’s morning (or even afternoon) more enjoyable.
Everyone can have a bad day at work, but coffee’s mood enhancing benefits can help counteract that. Sipping an afternoon iced latte or caramel macchiato gives that added mood boost that gets you through a frustrating workday. That pick-me-up is scientifically proven, and can be the perfect rejuvenation to one’s disposition.
Incredible Gourmet Taste
Roasting coffee beans results in the flavor that we all know and love. Sipping on a hot cup of coffee ensures you get to savor its wonderful essence and guarantees your craving will be satisfied. That coffee taste is always fantastic, but going for gourmet means your cup will always be high quality. I’m done with the grocery store brands, and highly recommend fair trade organic blends such as my favorite, Kicking Horse Coffee, 454 Horse Power
Productivity improves when you have the right level of energy to get through those slow afternoon hours. Coffee’s built-in caffeine can give any professional, geek or otherwise, a needed energy boost that will lead to better work to turn in.
There are days when the motivation to complete daily tasks can be hard to find. Coffee can promote creativity and inspiration and provide the drive to get work done in a timely manner. A morning or afternoon cup is sometimes all this web nerd needs as motivation toward getting my workload accomplished.
