still drinking this Kona. I'm not too fond of darker roasts... and this is.

Gotta go to the store and get tobacco, coffee and filters. We'll see what is available. All the varieties are not always to be had. Some Ethiopian would be nice. The Mexican beans are very good, too.

 

here's something that not many of you know, or cared... A bic lighter will balance on its [round] edge fairly readily. I found this out accidentally. I set my lighter down on the table and it balanced.

too much time on my hands?

 

maybe

can't say I have...

or  Jamaican

 

I don't think I would try that coffee they salvage from cat poop.  I don't need coffee that bad.

For most people to try Cuban Coffee, if you have a friend visiting Canada, have them bring back some Cubita brand...

Ended up with Mexican beans.

Don't know what I did wrong to the spaghetti.... but, it was really good. A cup of good coffee to wash it down... some music and a smoke. It will be bed time.

Feeling my way around spotify.  Nice to have some use for my computer. As a general rule, I try to stay away from it. Was telling wife that kids should be kept away from them until they are 16.

I hope you're not doing it on a phone, Spotify app is terrible on a phone, it's fine on an Ipad or computer but on a phone is almost impossible to figure out.

 

Recently signed up for my first paid music channel, its Pandora. I thought I would try it because they changed, you can now search single songs or albums and the bit rate goes up with the subscription. I can definitely hear a difference in quality.

I had a coupon so I splurged on a bag of single source Chiapas beans which were also slightly on sale.  Probably break into it in a few days after Peruvian is used up.

I didn't wait to use up the Kona. I couldn't wait

I go thru a fair amt of Peruvian. It's nice.They had Kauai coffee in dark and medium...

as the joke in MIB III goes,

"Tastes like dirt. It was ground yesterday"...

if it had been whole beans I would have bought a bag. It's good, not great... Don't command a premium price, either.

If you don't like the taste of the coffee, you can roll it up and smoke it.

One of the ones that is real is $$$

 

Forgot to mention I don't care for black beans, but there was this place in the lower level of one of the big buildings, across from where the cruise ships moored and you could see the Heat's arena almost from there. I had seconds of theirs then when I got another Cuban smashed sandwich to take home got some more of those beans too. Tasted black beans a dozen times since but never eaten them again.

There is only about one more batch left.  I'll wait so I don't mix the two in my canister.  The same coupon was good for Jamaican blue, but of course it was way pricier. 

Kona is a nice drink, and usually no more than a medium roast, but you have to make sure you get the real 100% stuff, because there have been some issues with unscrupulousness.  Hold out for Kona Peaberry if you can get it and are willing to pay---it is a big cut above.  I used to get a Sumatran peaberry at World Market which was pretty good, but they closed the store in my town and I will never forgive them.

Check to make sure it is set to best quality, It may not be?

We brought some back one time, it was good but I couldn't make it strong enough no matter what I did, but I don't know what the roast was? It was very mild.

 

Another thing was we were told there are many coffees from the blue mountain area and it can vary alot and hard to know if you're getting the real thing or something else.

Wallenford and Jamaica Coffee Roasters have mailing addresses actually on the island, I've only bought it from amazon recently when they started running out of Marley's. Yea it was that Marley, Bob's family, their blend was even great and I bought those three pound bags from amazon for $39.99 until they were out of them. They had a blue bag with the 100% for $50.00/lb. Bob's kids ran that company into the ground...... it's a shame. 

 

Twenty years ago I could get JBM at the BJs on Merritt Island for the same price as the other coffees?

 

Glad I dig the good ol Colombian still, it's affordable for the quantity that I need here! Drinking some now that's "honey process" no honey involved just cured naturally without washing. The mucilage isn't scrubbed off and the flavor is mellowed without being weak.

What I'm drinking looks like the black honey version at this blog, broke out the immersion brewer for this stuff last weekend.
