Though had to plug into the solar generator for the fans & portable personal a/c. I need to move to the artic. These hot flashes are a pain in the ass.

The handgrinder we had growing up defected to Canada...

Seriously, that grinder is in Canada properly mounted in a long term lease property.

I'm not a huge handgrinding fan, though when you need to you need to.

I'm roasting a bunch of Zambia samples now, nice!

Defected to Canada.

I have quite the collection of coffee making items and grinders. All things weird regarding coffee I usually buy.

The hand grinding is a pain in the ass but DID come in handy during that power outage.

Wouldnít want to do it every day thatís for sure.

Someone ordered some coffee, then disappeared without payment, so I have 6lbs (3 Espresso Torro, 3 Ethiopia Hadeso) roasted last Thurs evening. Retail is $125 for the whole shebang, I'll take $90.

It's packed and ready to ship!

New coffee! Costa Rica La Minita Sundried.

Quote:
La Minita is awesome. One of the best farms on the planet, they control every aspect of growing and processing from start to finish, under the watchful eye of Bill McAlpin. They don't use herbicides or pesticides, in fact they received Rainforest Alliance Certification without having to change a thing, easily surpassing their standards. They provide housing, schooling, and medical care for their workers and their families. They produce less than 2000 burlap bags of coffee a year, and this coffee takes over 300,000 man hours to hand sort and remove defective beans, with each worker processing less than 50lbs a day. It's painstaking, but yields fantastic results. It's a phenomenal coffee you can feel good about buying and drinking.

So what's better than La Minita? La Minita Sundried! They took 2000lbs (only!) of their best coffee, and let it dry for a few days in the sun on the drying patio, before being taken to the mill for processing. It's La Minita+, La Minita taken to 11: sweeter, more fruit, more floral, more YUM!

I can neither confirm nor deny. I do, however, have a machine that looks suspiciously like the one pictured. The husband was not too happy about the price.

I could open a coffee museum.

There should be a link to click on when you make payment? Let me see if I can get more precise directions.
