Can't you just smell them?


How awesome are friends? Pretty awesome. How awesome are friends who roast their own coffee beans and then share them with you?? WICKED AWESOME!!!

I worked with Tim a few years back, but then he went off and moved away! How dare he :) Thankfully due to this wonderful thing call the internet, we stay in touch. Tim was in town for a concert a few weeks back and we met up for coffee and he came bearing gifts!!

Description of his coffee:

Sweet Maria's: Guatemala San Jose Pinula - La Trinidad
Full City ro FC+: A classic Central profile, great body, bittersweet chocolate, intense, tangy roast notes and a twist of lemon rind.

I seriously think he should start selling the stuff. TIM START SELLING THIS!! You'll make $$$!!! Thank you so much for the coffee and let me know when you want to start selling!! I'll design your logo in exchange for beans ;)

How cool! Tim's got a built in market right here ... I know my husband would be psyched to get his hand on some of this stuff.

Tim has brought it to my attention that I failed to say how the coffee tasted... AMAZING!!!!!!! SO FREAKIN GOOD!!!! I KEEP DRINKING IT AND AM ALL HOPPED UP ON IT! :) It's true! Tim you seem to have a following here... when you going to start to sell it!

Very cool - I'm not really a coffee person, but I think even I would like to try this!

Hey Steph - glad you like it! Listen: anyone who would ever want to try this for themselves, it's wicked easy. Get a hot-air popcorn popper at Target (not walmart - theirs is a different design that won't work), a 4-pound sampler of beans at Sweet Marias, (http://www.sweetmarias.com), and do it up 1/4 cup of greens at a time. It takes about 8-10 minutes per batch. Do it outside, 'cause there's lots of smoke, and let the beans rest overnight. Grind, brew, and enjoy the best coffee you've ever had.

BTW - Sweet Marias also has more detailed instructions on hot air popcorn roasting like this.

Yep, I need new friends :)

Cheers,

*Heather*

Congratulations on having a wonderfu friend to share fantastic coffee with you. (Also great that he doesn't subscribe to the "the darker the better" school - this way you can taste the coffee!)
We've been roasting our own coffee for many years now - it's the perfect way to get truly fresh coffee! Our coffee roaster, burr grinder, and Bunn are the first things in the house whenever we move.
