George House Coffee and Tea

So here we are, finally with a review.

Recently, a wonderful friend of ours brought us some coffee from a coffee shop someone in her family own. That wonderful gesture of generosity does make this review biased. Also, I wasn't able to visit the shop myself since it is in another state.

We were presented with two coffees to try. One is a roast from Panama's Boquete region, and another is a Snickerdoodle.

Both are excellent coffees. I think the Boquete is one of the better ones I've turned into espressos. It hits all of those right notes I like, and makes a pretty little shot. (I would get pictures, but I broke my clear espresso glasses.)

I think Panama is becoming one of my favorite places in the world for coffee, just from the few coffees I've had from there.

If I am ever in this part of Ohio, I will definitely check out the shop.

On a side note, we were also given some crystallized ginger. I know its meant to be used in stuff, but I've been sneaking it like candy all week.

Coffee in SPACE!

Here's something from one of my favorite science blogs talking about a new coffee machine headed to the ISS. It is being made in conjunction with the Italian Space Agency and Lavazza.

I guess, if you are going to have some kind of vendor lock-in, Lavazza isn't a bad way to go.

Deal With the Devil

Nothing more than someone's drabble I wanted to share. I may not be a believer, but the devil is always fascinating.

The 90's at 9.

Well, 9-ish.

I've been meaning to pop this up for a while. Enjoy.

Whatever happened to Love Canal and Mighty Joe Plum anyway?

I found the most awesome new today that could possibly come from Canada.

Ethical Bean Coffee is now easily available in the US. I don't have to hunt down and horde it anymore. Ethical Bean is now offered through Amazon.

Their full range is now available. Just in time for an extremely belated Father's Day gift.
