Coco

What do I LOVE to do when I’m not roasting coffee?! Spending hours training dogs!

And when an 85 lb spunky German Shepard pup, starts listening to my cues, becoming connected to my energy and her and I become one?! I feel on top of the world.

It took a lot of work to train this pup! We started with her behaving so unruly I nearly quit! She pulled and trust me, she’s very, very strong!

Then, realizing, if I was her, I’d be pulling too! I’d want to sniff and pull to meet this dog on the path and and..!

So I put myself in her shoes (paws in this case), and I imagined, what would ‘I’ want, if I was her?!

And now? I wish you could see her:

She ignores triggers. And all I do? Is address her calmly. While walking. No shift in ‘my’ energy. No change or tensing up on my part, when we encounter triggers. Just, a consistent quiet voice. As we continue walking. Consistency is key. ‘Trusting’ is another key. She finally?! Gets it! I cannot believe it!

Dogs are my love. Coffee first, then dogs.

Have an amazing weekend! Cheers

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!
