The coffee table

Pinterest meets the internet of things

The truth is that it is never about the coffee. You don’t tell someone to meet you at a coffee shop because you are both craving caffeine. You don’t really want to get a disposable cup at Starbucks and run off to work. You want to grab their attention.

I like coffee like a ritual among friends. It gives you something to do, something to talk about. It’s a conversation starter.

Waiting for a friend, still half asleep from waking up early, I went to the train station’s cafe for an espresso.

It was early.

Did I mention I was half asleep? For fun I placed the coffee cup’s handle and the spoon to show the time and I took a photo.

That’s how it started.
