New Blinds

Yiching says--

Every sunny afternoon, especially in the winter/spring time, the sun will shine through our big brick glass windows and tries to blind us. BUT NOT ANY MORE! John put up a couple of blinds for us this week. Not only do they help protect us from the blinding sunlight, they also look cool when thile they filter the light!

Tony is Cool

Tony is an old gentleman who comes to the caffe everyday and has our Press Pot Coffee or a traditional espresso drink. He never asks for our "Press Pot," but he'd ask for "the Costa Rican today, please," or "the organic Guatemalen Coban today, please," as far as this week goes. When he comes we talk about Europe, war, history, and our dogs, and then he'd read the paper and have his coffee.

Tony is cool, and as our friend Brian said, "He's like a character in an animation or manga." Truly.

Organic Guatemalen Coban

John is really excited to roast and introduce the Organic Guatemalen Coban for our Press Pot Coffee this week. This bean brews a sweet, winey, and fruity cup. This light-bodied coffee has a pleasant intensity in the finish and develops a heavier body as it cools. Yum!

Testing Shots

Yiching Says--

John thought the espresso was a bit "off" this morning. He was tweaking the machine and testing shots throughout the morning. I think he had 30ish shots. Crazy man. But the good thing is, the espresso is "right on" now.

Restless Lizard Blend

Yiching says--

John finally revealed the name of the mystery blend of coffee-- Restless Lizard Blend.

This blend of select Brazilian Yellow Bourbon and the finest Colombian Huila creates a complex cup with notes of raisin and fig intertwined with a smooth and nutty honey-molasses coffee eseence.

Whether relaxed or on the go, this is the perfect coffee for any environment. (Got it? ^__^)

Mystery Blend

Yiching Says--

John roasted a couple batches of beans the other day and said, "Ahhh, this is going to be an interesting blend. Good, and interesting blend."

All I know about the blend so far is that it will consist some Brazilian and Colombian beans of some sorts, and that they smell fantastic. When Doris, who loves our Press Pot Coffee, was just here, John told her that the beans are ready to be tested and blended today and that he'll let her sample some of the new coffee tomorrow.

Hmm... the mystery blend of beans...
