Since we aren’t wine connoisseurs anymore…..
A couple of weeks ago I retweeted Mary Rambin’s “5 things I learned about a good cup of coffee”. I mean seriously, most of us in recovery drink a lot of coffee so I thought it might be fun to learn a bit more.
It turns out La Hacienda’s own Steve Layton knows a thing or two about coffee, he roasts his own coffee beans at home. Needless to say he has a couple of co-workers that can’t get enough of his coffee. Turns out roasting your coffee is actually pretty easy and not too time consumnig. Steve recommended Sweet Maria’s for all things on home roasting.
Marc Wortman has an entire website devoted to his love for coffee. He is dedicated to making restaurant quality coffee at home (uh, feel free to pass this on to your AA coffee bar :). He also takes you on a coffee trip around the world with details from all the countries that produce coffee beans.
If reading isn’t really your thing, check out this video from The Fix. It is short, witty and actually very informative.
