Where did you start on your coffee journey? Mine started in the tropics and highlands of Colima Mexico, on the flanks of the “Volcano of Fire”. I thought, mistakenly, that the close source of coffee producers helped create the unique and flavorful cups of java I’d learned to appreciate every morning. But, why then could I not recreate that taste after hoarding my “supply” for a couple of weeks? Ah, It must be the tropical heat… Or I’m just not brewing correctly (I’m really only a beginner at this yet). After a time I could see a pattern developing though, A new bag of beans was key! “Fresh Roasted” being the key words! So, the important question wasn’t where’s it from, or what variety, or how it was roasted, or or… While these can make a difference, the important question is “How old is this roast?” With fresh roasted beans, the others variables then become only steps of the tasting adventure. Come journey with me and we’ll enjoy the pleasantries of a fresh cup (or two or three) of coffee together.
