the long road to being finished

I'm making coffee.

Have you ever thought about the journey that coffee takes to make it to your mug? From cherry on the vine to caffeine in the cup...I mean, consider the steps:

Planted, nurtured (watered, fertilized), pruned, nurtured (watered, fertilized), harvested, dried, collected, roasted, packaged, shipped, received, sold, ground, scooped, doused, filtered, and drank...

And all of that preparation just to meet one's end... Sort of an interesting metaphor, I suppose.
