I am getting to that point in probably a few days that I will be picking up another bag of coffee either on here or through various local means of getting some nice fresh roasted coffee. However, one of the biggest problem is that there is a lot of coffee out there especially when you consider all of the roasters that you can pick up here on Roaste or anywhere else on the internet for that matter, really sometimes it feels like decision paralysis.
I'm still playing with recipes for a culinary coffee cookbook and this one is my latest attempt. It's not perfect, but my taste testers tell me that this coffee pastry was "the bomb".
We see enough of these “coffee is healthy for you” articles
lately, but why not pile on and post one more? Lord knows we had to suffer
through enough bad science reports telling us how bad they thought coffee was
for us – payback baby!
This one comes to us complements of New England Journal of
Medicine by way of Gizmodo:
about two months ago I wrote a little blog about the issue that I was getting with my shots off of the Nuova Simonelli Musica; the shot taste mightly fine but at the end, there was a lot of grit and I have to conciously try to avoid at that last sip. It can of remind me of french press coffee a little bit. I was alluding to some possibilities regarding this anomaly.
*something wrong with the grinder
In the spirit of Nick’s “Odds and Ends” post the other day, I thought I’d just share some thoughts about what’s going on with me without fussing excessively about whether or not they hang well together. Here goes.
One of the interesting things about writing a blog here on this site it has made it incredibly obvious to me that coffee has long since gone from beverage to hobby for me. I assume this is the case for a lot of people that blog on this website and those that I talk with over some of the online communities that I visit in regards to coffee. However, I am not quite sure when that change from coffee the beverage became coffee the hobby, I guess the best way I can describe is like when you fall in love with a friend.
So this last month has been crazy busy and while I've enjoyed plenty of coffee I haven't had much of a chance to write about it. It's been over a month since my last post.
