Alcohol like wine, beer, whiskey, or sake is not the ones I can be an expert since I usually do not drink alcohol. I know there are a lot of things to learn and enjoy the differences regarding various aspects e.g., taste (sweetness, dryness), scent, years, region, brand, ways of brewing, ways of drinking, etc. Instead, coffee would be the one that I can spend more time. I drink coffee almost every day. However, I notice I do not know about coffee yet.
Also, as a part of my experiment to nurture my epistemic curiosity, I would try to set a weekly theme this week to deep dive into one thing. By setting "coffee" as a theme for this week, let me focus and deep dive on coffee.
Here are the aspects that I plan to research and write about coffee this week
- A better way to brew
- Relationship between regions and taste
- Nutrition and impact on health
- The way to become a barista
- A barista contest
- Coffee market and business in the world
- Latest technology to brew tastier coffee
To satisfy my epistemic curiosity as I wrote in this post "How to deep dive with epistemic curiosity", we should have two types of an intermediate gap 1) between the expectation and the reality, and 2) what I know and I do not. I hope the topics I will research above will bring me some appropriate surprises that I did not expect but not totally unexpected. For example, my way of brewing was not that great (which I expect though), and the new way will bring us better taste every morning. This could be overestimated.
Let me know if you have any other aspect that would be interesting regarding coffee.
