Watching TED Talks is a popular pastime at CN&CO. We visit TED.com regularly to clear our heads, have a laugh or get inspired. TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations. Each week we pick a favourite and publish it on a Tuesday, because we like how “TED Talk Tuesday” sounds. It’s also a way that the CN&CO team play their part on spreading ideas and helping to make the world a better place. This week’s talk is posted by Blake Dyason.

This week we celebrate International Coffee Day on 1 October, yes it’s a thing.

I became a coffee snob in 2015 on a cycle across Malawi, It was the process of making the coffee that relaxed me, allowed my mind to dream with the smell of fresh coffee.

I thought that this TED Talk by Author A J Jacobs was fitting and give me perspective. It takes a world to deliver the perfect coffee.
