Coffee and some nonsense

It’s time for another episode of coffee talk, with your host…dB.

I think it’s gonna be a long day.  I woke up at 2:00am (bed at 11:30), and could not fall back to sleep no matter what I tried.  One of those times my mind was racing over several things;  from designing and fabricating a coffee roaster in my mind, to new workshop layout and fixtures, to room layouts and paint colors… oh boy.

So I finally got up at 3:30.  Worked on a spreadsheet and write up for a potential new business venture for a while.  Made an early breakfast of cheese, butter, cucumber, avocado and sesame salt on toast.  Finally made my first pot of coffee at about 5:00.  Got a chemex from my sister for Christmas.  Really enjoying it.  Guess its been over a week now.  I think I can taste the subtleties a bit more when compared to the french press I’ve used for about 12 years.  I sound like a coffee snob, truth is I’ll drink gas station coffee, and quite often do.  But I do like the roasting thing.  I’ve stove-top roasted so damn many beans for Xmas presents, I guess that’s why building a roaster has been on my mind more than usual, though I’ve been planning one for about a year now.  Had a friend who wanted to buy my coffee, but I can barely keep up with my own habit at this point.

Well, today will either bring a nap, or several more pots of coffee, maybe both.  Ok, off to work.

Now discuss…
