Kenya, (itll make you as fast as Kenyans!)

Just got a chance to cup our new lot of Kenya this morning, and wow. Worth every penny I paid to grab this micro lot. If you have never had the chance to try a good quality Kenyan coffee before, now is the time. Take advantage of the free shipping, or whatever old coupon you may have laying around and try this stuff out!

Power Outage and Double roast cupping

So today we experienced a few hour power outage, putting us into production at this lovely hour.

I am one to look on the bright side of things, though, and will focus on how great tonight's Jam in Charlotte was instead, along with my being able to cup our double roast espresso with a different method of brewing.

It is quite astounding how clean this darker roast can come out in a drip brewer, but it requires a finer grind than any single origin I have in order to fully extract its flavors. I am very satisfied with this, and I believe others will be as well, so I urge you to try it out!
