S.W.O.T. analysis for coffee. Part 1: Strengths

If you ask me if I am a dog person or a cat person, I would answer Both!
If you ask me if I am a morning person or an evening person, I would answer Both!
If you ask me if I am a coffee person or a tea person, I would answer Both!
If you ask me if I am right handed or left handed, I would answer Both! Then, I would probably pause for a second and say ''I mean I am ambidextrous''
If you ask me if I like to watch television or listen to the radio, I would definitely answer Radio!

I always compare having a cup of coffee with listening to the radio. I prefer radio over television because it is an entertainment tool that sets me free. I can listen to a talk show while I am walking down the street, do the dishes or play backgammon with someone. Watching a documentary about marine life or binging on Netflix on television, on the other hand, only good for sitting down on my couch and chill.

There are very few things in life can both be a companion and give us the freedom we required. Coffee is one of them. I think coffee is fused into our daily life so well because we can enjoy it while doing other things. İn fact, at this very moment I am listening to a pot cast, working on the first part of this S.W.O.T. analysis and sipping Colombian coffee at the same time.

Another strength of coffee is, as much as we can enjoy it alone, it can be the source of social gatherings. Coffee is the ultimate conversation starter. The reason is obvious but very effective: Most coffee drinks are served hot. You cannot just chug your coffee.  When you sitting on a table next to a stranger and waiting for your coffee to get cooler, eventually you or that person next to you would say something and the conversation takes off.
It seems not significant but since the emergence of first coffeehouses in Europe during 17th and 18th century, most of the philosophical discussions and political debates begun exactly like that.

Today, every city in the world has thousands of cafes and coffee houses just to bring people together from all walks of life to exchange ideas, talking about daily events or gossip about other people.
At the end, not every one like to meet for kayaking, playing video games or fishing every day but almost everyone up for grabs a cup of coffee anytime.

Last but not least, coffee has some health benefits. Coffee drinkers have a lower risk to develop type 2 diabetes. Addition to that, Scientists are agreed on people who drink three to four cups of coffee a day have reduced the risk of mortality against all diseases except cancer. However, they cannot point why coffee drinkers live longer exactly. Besides of that, it is proven that drinking coffee helps prevent tooth decay; Only if consumed without any additives. Which means no milk, no half, and half no sugar.

This concludes the first part of the S.W.O.T. analysis for coffee. I hope you saw my Eleanor Roosevelt reference in the fifth paragraph. If you interested to read more about the relation between coffee and type 2 diabetes or how coffee can help fight with caries, click on the links at the bottom.
