oh hello again.

Today I start a new leaf. Just having turned 33, the magical trinity, I think I will make some new waves in my life. As far as coffee goes, I have many thoughts on that as usual. But many more thoughts seem to be swimming around in the old nugget on shoulders. The more research I read, the more I share, the more I think we will never truly figure out the coffee thing, the roasting thing I mean.
Every single time we think we have it figured out, the damn coffee decides to do something “interesting” in the drum to either blow us away, or totally depress us. Oh coffee, must you be this way in order to make us more astute roasters? yes. I think so. And I think this is fine actually, because it only keeps me motivated to do better and better.
Off to a Giants game with some wonderful co-workers and a new friend!

One Response to “oh hello again.”


    No surprise that coffeehouses offer good talk. Two years ago the Wall Street Journal lauded the coffeehouse in this way: “It is almost as if every great civilization in the world had taken a brief time-out from trying to kill one another to brainstorm what a perfect public space should look like.” So, if the coffeehouse is the perfect place to talk, why shouldn’t it be the perfect place to offer, and absorb, good advice? That’s the approach author Charles Kelly has adopted in Finnegan’s Way: The Secret Power of Doing Things Badly. It’s true Kelly has chosen a prosaic coffeehouse: a Starbucks in Scottsdale, Arizona. But Finnegan, the coffee-drinking savant Kelly presents in this self-help fable, is a man with a cosmopolitan flavor. He’s not The Most Interesting Man in the World, but he may be the most congenial. He offers an energetic message. Live life! Don’t worry if you are doing things badly. Go for it! And drink up, preferably a double espresso. The fable is available on Smashwords and on Amazon.
