Third best aroma in the world


If the greatest aroma of all is that of Christ, from believers (2 Cor 2)... and the second is the prayers of the saints (Rev 20)... the third must be freshly ground coffee beans.

  1. Mmm... yes, I agree wholeheartedly!

    I wouldn't work for a corporate giant of a coffee shop if I didn't enjoy coffee... (and the best part is I can get a free bag of Fairtrade coffee every week, if I choose to!)

    Bonus.

  2. if you ever find yourself unable to consume a bag per week, do be charitable...

  3. How about the smell of the first time held grandchild or child? Coffees alright for the body but not the heart!

  4. Jerry: Um, dunno.

    MikeyC: Agreed fresh bread is brilliant. The perfect culinary aroma is surely fresh coffee, fresh bread and newly cooked bacon... preferably mid-morning on a Saturday...

  6. you've obviously never tasted good coffee... or you've tried to pollute pure coffee it with filthy things like "milk"...

    (granted i'm partial to a Mocha once in a while)

  7. The smell of a newborn child!? When my daughter was born, I can't honestly look back and say I was thinking 'oh what a lovely smell'. I can't remember smelling anything at all. But then it was 4:20am which doesn't help. Perhaps my nose was asleep.

    Dave - it's a good thing you love a hot beverage - it's a key part of student life!
