The Magickal Aspects of Coffee

Magickal Aspects of Coffee

Could your morning brew be doing more for you?

 IloveCoffee

Most of us enjoy a good cup of Joe. It’s tasty and gets us moving. Why not?

If you are like me you really look forward to your morning cup (or pot if it going to be one of those days). 

In many cases coffee is fairly basic, you can find it anywhere, and since most people drink it, most of us don’t give it a second though. Here even the most basic ingredient is something more! Here we discover that coffee is far more than a simple energy boosting beverage. 

Coffee is rich in legend, history, and depending on where the beans are grown; Coffee offers a variety of flavors. So, before you chug another cup of coffee to stay awake through your next exam, or to improve your athletic endurance;  let’s first take a look at the different flavors of some varieties of coffee have to offer.  A little later we will discuss the different Magickal benefits coffee offers. 

Coffee Green Beans

The movement of home coffee roasting has taken many kitchens by storm. Mine included. These days, I’m past the caffeine buzz, and more into it for the flavor and aroma. A few years ago a good friend and fellow coffee coinsurer, got me into home roasting.

Honestly, I was hooked after we tasted some of his own home roasted brews. Home roasters are not too expensive (considering their specialty), and are well worth the expense. If you are a serious enthusiast, this is a hobby I highly recommend. 

The process of selecting, roasting, and tasting the variety of singular coffee flavors is a deliciously eye opening experience. This is where you can discover the unique flavor of each variety of bean related to its country of origin. I have grown a unique and deep appreciation for individual flavors each region lends to the coffee bean. Here is a look at some of my favorite varieties, their country of origin, and flavor notes. 

Ethiopia Harrar

– Blueberry, sweet, spice, bakers’ chocolate, with a smooth rich finish.

Colombian Narino Supremo

– Dried fruit and brown sugar tones.

Papua New Guinea

– Very sweet and clean with a little ginger and a bakers chocolate undertone

Indonesian Sumatra Lintong

– Clean with earthy tones and chocolate 

The Magickal Aspects of Coffee from The Magick Kitchen400x426In just these 4 varieties you can see how the flavors vary. There are dozens more varieties out there to sample and savor. Some with distinct fruity tones and others with earthy and savory notes. I never thought coffee was so diverse. 

If you can’t roast your own beans, try finding a good local coffee house that roasts its own beans. This will give you a good glance at the favor palate available. 

Of course I know you want more…

Beyond a popular beverage, we can also value coffee for its Magickal and culinary uses. Coffee is a versatile plant that lends a great deal to us. Take a look and you will see what I mean. 

 

 

Coffee, Magickal Aspects:

Dispels nightmares, encourages hard work, removes internal blockages, and infuses intentions with stamina.

Magickal Tip Coffee The Magick KitchenSpell Work:

Sprinkle on your altar to encourage summoned spirits to work harder toward a goal. Drink in Magickal workings to remove internal blockages, to “get out of your own way”. Drink as part of a daily morning devotional. 

Culinary Use:

usually brewed and enjoyed as a beverage, either hot or cold. Coffee is also paired well with spices and other foods like chocolate. Coffee can be use in desserts and sparingly in savory dishes. Try marinating beef in coffee some time and taste the indulgence.

Preserving & Storage:

Coffee is best kept in the whole bean form until ready to brew. Grinding just before brewing will ensure the freshest flavor. Roast and store in the whole bean form for no more than 10 days. May also be stored in the freezer for slightly extended storage.

I just want good food and to live a Magickal life! Is that so much to ask?After many years of study, struggle, and disappointment; I realize that I could forge my own path using the knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques. Through persistence I found the honest answer... I can have both!
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
Please enjoy the recipes, article, and content here on The Magick Kitchen. If you have questions or suggestions, I’m listening.
I am so glad you joined me! The personal act of sharing knowledge, experience, and personal perspective with you is an honor. Thank you!

  1. Hi
    I wanted to reply to the magick in coffee as I did some “accidental magick” whilst spring cleaning, which entailed me having to clean some sticky old coffee from a tin, but I had no intention of magick, it just happened and BOY! did it happen..I was suddenly in a different realm, where I could see gargoyles sucking the blood from mens necks “without them, or anyone else seeing them” it was evening and these “demons” were the world full, but we cannot see them or know what they do, but they look exactly like gargoyles, leathery black skin and anyone who is “laying down/sleeping” seemed to be “safe” but anyone up late at night, was a victim. Men walkk down the road, unknowing these things are attatched to their necks hoping and catching the next human train of free “food”. Since then each time I look into the ether I see these things, unfortunately they eventually saw me looking at them, then came at me, and banishing just doesn’t work with these shits..not anything of our “realm” works, I’ve had to go all cold and ugly on them – it was the only way.
    thee ones attacking at later stages were the smaller ones, but I had to do them in too and then one rather large “pissed off one” came at me, sorry but I got terminator on the bang lot of them, I could feel the draining effects of their onslaught. I have been seeing lots of things as black as the coffee since then, and felt thir effects..which I was unaware of till now. Gargoyles come from a rich history of demonology, otherwise how else can these things exist, I never knew gargoyles were real, I thought they were just statues, but France and even the french blooded in South Africa are severely into using Demons for personal gain. I know their level of dimension seemed about 4 levels difference between us and them..hence most cannot see them even in ones wildest dreams. But the black of coffee is definately a way to reach their dimension. Even knowing they could always reach us.
