1. Coffee

    I think I have seen the future of the coffee shop. It’s not a chain. It’s not on every corner. It’s not on auto-pilot.

    It’s got a vinyl record player playing.
    Its design is minimal, modern and it’s clad in reclaimed wood.

    And, to my right, is a machine.
    And there’s a man pouring coffee beans into it from large hessian sacks.
    And the smell is – Oh, the smell is just – you know. And he is roasting the beans right here, right now.

    I order a cup.
    I take a sip.
    And it’s ‘crazy good’.
    And I think to myself, I wouldn’t like to be Starbucks.
