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.
