That is exactly I was thinking.. the Jamaican in me only sees coffee infused curry goat with some boiled green bananas.

The operation looks very clean and organized.

I'm with you there, Shawn. Though there's no Jamaican in me.

But I do have a little bit of Indian (from India). Will that work?

I'd still eat it. Wanna cook for us at the WIA?

John,

Thanks for this info! I'm going to give them a try. It's kind of hard to resist that coffee.

I'm somewhat convinced that I suffer through the Ironman there just so I can stock up on coffee and the good eats from that part of the world. Did you go to Merrimans? Bit of a long, dark drive, but certainly worth it.

First time out there we stayed up under the clouds and stumbled upon this coffee plantation. Small, organic and really great coffee. Been back each time and really like their peaberry. That seems to make a tasty espresso. Kona Coffee Company at Kona Lea Plantation

Best,
Steve

You've got me beat, Laurie. I put about 6 miles on a bike the other day - the first time in about 30 years. Sad.

But on the upside, I didn't hurt afterward.

Though it was very flat, or slightly downhill the whole way...

It was more like PlayDohMan

That's awesome.

Although I did put 20 miles on my bike the other day.
For the first time in five years. Or so.
Yes, though since I now pull/push a 2 year old for most of my workouts I haven't done Ironman in a bit. Hoping to get back there next Oct. It is kind of a magical place, and then there is the coffee

20 miles is a great ride. I love just getting out for an hour or two with the wind and sun, and the wildlife you get to see. Those 100 mile rides in the rain? Not so much.

No swimming? What happens if you fall overboard amongst the shrieking eels?

Now, back to the coffee. I usually alternate between Illy and some local roasters (and a roastery in Napa county), but I'm always looking for something new to try. Any fun recommendations?

Steve, Trent at Mountain Thunder sold me one of these devices (they're also available at Amazon).



The coffee it makes is so good. At first I thought it was just the high quality of the Mountain Thunder Kona, but since I've been home I've tried many different brands, and they all come out better.

I think it's because of the lower brewing temperature and the very fine grind allowed by the micro filter. In any case, I can highly recommend this device.

Of course I also had to go out and get a good quality burr grinder, which allows a fine and very even grind. Geez, this is just another slippery slope like woodworking and photography.

And maybe next week I'll go down and look at one of these, the factory is not too far from me. They're 220v SINGLE phase! :

Maybe later, right now I'm busy planting the coffee trees.
