Do you know the solemn attention when a homebarista offers you coffee?

Take your fathers old diver that he wore every day, the stained blade you bought as a kid and still use, or that Shoji Cappu your friend gave you when a coffee love was born: it is the patina of daily use that makes a thing sacred.
Own things over time. Use them, every day, over a period of many years or a life time. That’s what makes things sacred.
