Ever think about the music that you associate with your coffee? Every moment of our life has a beat and a drink. Coffee is present on an almost daily basis of our life. So the question becomes, what is the beat of your life?
Typically, your music is like your coffee. If you like your coffee cool or chilled like a frappuccino, you probably enjoy listening to reggae or rnb (rhythm and blues). If you prefer your coffee warm and soothing, you probably listen to jazz and the ballads.
Some music, coffee blends and occasion go together. For example many people associate peppermint and hot chocolate with christmas. Our enterprising cafes know this and have peppermint coffee available for you to perk you up after a tiring day of christmas shopping. You can rest your feet, chat with your friends and listen to christmas carols performed by Bing Crosby and the like.
Rare is it that you’ll find yourself drinking coffee at a rock concert. Usually the brew served there is alcoholic in nature. You’ll probably have your coffee after the event, probably to wind down your evening. The music would also be more mellow as you cap the night.
Most offices have programmed background music that is unobtrusive yet soothing for their clients and staff. Usually in meetings, it may be turned down very low but the strains of classical music can be heard. You barely hear the tones of Bach playing while you savor the delicious coffee brewed for you by your host. The two combine to help keep you alert and your mind sharp on your deals.
