coffee roasting

Years back, coffee was just something to drink so I could keep on driving. A bitter liquid to keep me awake. I tried to understand coffee by purchasing different kinds from Peets, but they all were roasted dark and all tasted similar. I decided to take a class on coffee tasting, with an awareness that there must be something better out there.

We started the class by cupping some of the best coffees from around the globe. I thought "Wow, they are sweet and not bitter, and you don't even have to put half and half in them to make them taste good." So a fascination was released. I bought a sample roaster and began to roast and cup several times a week. As I developed my palate I developed a passion for finding the best coffees in the world. A paradigm shift was brewing for me, and a door opened into the reality of world class coffee with intense fragrance, aroma and taste. I realized I could no longer go back to dark roast, commercial grade, machine harvested Brazilian coffee. And why would I want to? Why not drink the best? It really doesn't cost that much more to drink clean, bright, complex coffees, and it's such a wonderful life-enriching experience.

I believe we must follow our passions or life becomes a predictable routine program, slipping quickly away day by day. Come on, let's brew the best and enjoy the best! Today if the sky is not blue tomorrow is will be. Seek God and his goodness. Come up higher, out of the muck and mire, and put your feet on a rock... the rock of this full and enjoyable life.
