This article is a part of Kuju Journal series: "FINDING YOUR #KUJUMOMENT - a moment of rest & rejuvenation - in the midst of the anxiety and ambiguity of 2020"
What exactly is a #Kujumoment? Do you need to be outside or on a crazy adventure to achieve a #KujuMoment?
The answer is NO.
A Kuju Moment is a moment of rest and rejuvenation - and that is personal. You can create a #KujuMoment anywhere and anytime you need to feel rejuvenated. Life itself is a crazy big adventure and we need to make sure we take time to cultivate and rejuvenate as often or as little as we personally feel we need to.
Looking back at my college experience, I wish I knew how to create a #KujuMoment. I started drinking coffee in college for the pure caffeine fix, I needed to stay up late writing papers (I am not a night owl by any means). I had no idea the additional benefits of having this "me" time to enjoy a cup of joe was so important to my wellbeing and overall mental function.
Squeezed into a tiny old smelly dorm room with a complete stranger, pulling an all nighter to study for exams, and pretty much feeling hungry all the time I had no idea how to cultivate and rejuvenate.
So why is a tiny dorm room perfect for creating a #KujuMoment?
Well… my sister and I are 11 years apart and she just moved into her college dorm room this August. We have very little in common except one thing. Our number one essential item for our dorm room…. A Kettle. Even though our college experiences are far apart, we still both had the same essential “kitchen” setup for our dorm room. There is no space for a full coffee maker, but I did already have a kettle in my room (for all the Cup of Noodles and Easy Mac Dinners)!
Guess what? All you need to create a #KujuMoment is a Kuju Single Serve Pour Over, a kettle, and access to water.
Just like a busy parent or working professional, college students have stress and homework demands that as adults we sometimes forget about. It's important to teach our students how to deal with that stress. And just like adults, college students can find comfort in taking 5-10 minutes to themselves to experience brewing a single serve pour over coffee and sipping a hot fresh cup of joe before diving into their textbook for an all nighter. The brewing experience and caffeine will have any college student feeling cultivated and rejuvenated.

Have a child in college? Know a friend living in a dorm room? I recommend sending a surprise and delight Deluxe Brew Kit bundle to perk them up! It's the ultimate care package you can send to a tired hungry college student.
