You need fire

"Cosmos is fire" said the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus. He believed fire was the most fundamental element that gave rise to the other elements and thus to all things. He regarded the soul as being a mixture of fire and water, with fire being the noble part of the soul, and water the ignoble part. A soul should therefore aim toward becoming more full of fire and less full of water: a "dry" soul was best.

Fire is an essential part of coffee. We need it for roasting the beans and we need it to heat up water the the ideal 96° C to actually brew our coffee. 

But fire is also magic. Just like water, it's one of those primal elements that connects with our soles, with everything deep deep inside ourselves and makes us stop whatever we're doing, even stop talking, and just sit for a while, staring at the flames. We all love campfires for exactly that reason.
