Mode of action

  • Helps us fulfil our obligations and duties in life, but only those we really want to do; brings a love of life and dynamism (encouragement)
  • Protects us from obligations we have but don't want; make us aware of them so that we free ourselves from them (caution)
  • Protects us against too many obligations in life: removes excess stress and duties; shows us where we are overburdened; helps avoid burnout due to overload
  • For people who don't want to be forced into doing anything (even if they're the ones doing the forcing)
  • Obligations can act like poison (liver)
  • To regain a love of life by learning to do what you really want and not what is required by others or society
  • For people who demand too much from themselves without paying attention to whether they really want it
  • Broad detoxification and protection at all levels (negativity, stress, destabilizing energies)
  • Permission to make your own choices, to go your own way, even if your own path does not meet the expectations of others
  • Coffee break => Regeneration and return to yourself
  • Coffee junkies actually need a break and phases of regeneration
  • Increase mental performance through strong structuring, stabilization, and increasing the forces that build you up
  • Your own will makes you aware of what you want
  • Helping & Accepting help
  • Strengthens the sense of duty to help others, take responsibility in society, and stand up for those who are weaker (solidarity movements) => view solidarity as duty
  • Coffeehouses: the nucleus of revolutions (duty of solidarity, labour movements, drive for solidarity)
  • Solidarity, supporting others, receiving mutual support
  • Cohesion based on shared beliefs or goals
  • Burnout, stress => having to do things you don't want to do
  • Loving life, drive => having to do things you want to do
  • Increase rational thinking, analytics (the drink of the Enlightenment)
  • Gives new ideas, improved thinking, creative power, and clarity of the senses (coffee houses as a meeting place for intellectuals, artists, and musicians)
  • Focus on physical things, instead of spiritual, religion, or mental processes (blanking out everything invisible); the triumph of scientific thinking, technology, and progress
  • Loss of intuition (religion and spirituality were forbidden in coffee houses)
  • For impatient people
  • Stressors
  • Meeting for a coffee: coming together to transform the negative into a positive (processing negative emotions)
  • Finding solutions where there seems to be none
  • Strong influence on the development in the Western world since the 15th century (the drink of capitalism and revolution)
  • Time reference: briefly changes the perception of time, short-term loss of a sense of time
  • Clearly seeing what lurks in the night
