Well, it was bound to happen: after DAYS of wonderful sunshine, it is rainy here in Vermont! Altho, the sun has come out a little and it appears to be drying up already.
It is a 2 (or 3?) coffee day!

Here's a collection of beans that popped out of the dog bowl while I was roasting outside the other day~ shows the progression nicely, and there were a few peaberries in there too.
For anyone who wants to try roasting yourself, the heat gun/dog bowl method is really fun and inexpensive and you really get to experience the roast stages up close and personal. I highly recommend it!

Finally warmer weather is here and it feels REALLY good!
Drinking a real smooth and creamy 50/50 blend of Ethiopian Harrar and Brazil Mogiana Decaf beans....nice body and a lingering chocolatey mouthfeel. A great way to start Saturday morning! Looking forward to getting outside to roast more bigger batches of beans!

Meet Lovely Layla!
Layla's mom, Shelley, says:
"Last night when my husband got home he brought me a Starbucks. Layla knows when she sees it what it is and bolts right up into my lap to see if she can have a lick. Her favorite is the whipped creme on top (as you can see pictured here)."
What a CUTIE! yessireee, I do believe Layla may have to take on our Heavy Heavyweight CHAMP, Lucy! Coming soon...
