Coffee Stories

  1. 1. Coffee Stories by Lifebushido Website: www.lifebushido.com/coffee E-mail: coffee@lifebushido.com
  2. 2. What is Coffee Stories?  A collection of stories gathered from a diverse group of people, or crowdsourced  Stories of events that occurred while in a coffee shop  Events made a significant impact on the person’s life
  3. 3. Types of Stories  At the coffee shop ◦ Reconnected with family ◦ Fell in love ◦ Started a business ◦ Closed a sale ◦ Made a new friend ◦ Had a brilliant idea ◦ Changed life’s direction
  4. 4. Example Story #1 I met my husband at a coffeehouse. I had just moved over to the US from the UK and knew barely anybody. On the weekends I would walk over to the local coffee shop and sit outside watching the world go by with a cup of coffee and a book. One Saturday I was being hit on by an annoying idiot when my husband saved the day. After hearing my accent he asked if I had heard of a town called Helston in Cornwall, UK, which happened to be his last name. The conversation continued and four years later we are happily married!
  5. 5. Example Story #2 I learned to play the board game Risk at a coffeehouse near where I live. Sounds odd, learning something like that while at a coffeehouse, the atmosphere doesn't really fit. It was a long game, but I don't think the owners cared since we kept ordering more coffee. Overall it was a fun experience, I learned a new game and got to play it with people I did and didn't know, so I also made a few new friends. Now we play whenever we've got a good group of people together and have nothing better to do.
