Coffee Snob

Received the greatest gift for Father's Day--a 4 cup French Press Coffeemaker. Coffee snobs are right, this is the ONLY way to make a good cup of coffee. We recently did a coffee driving tour of the Kona coast, visiting 2 coffee farms. Shown here is a bag of Holualoa Coffee Company's Peaberry...that's 100% Kona handpicked beans. Only 5% of the cherries on a coffee tree are peaberries...that's right, this is the "champagne" of coffee. If you don't believe this stuff is any better than your Maxwell House drip coffee, come over and we'll do a Pepsi Challenge. Below are links to the 2 farms we visited...can't wait for the next trip

Wow, Strap. You're really Yupping out there!

Strap said...

maybe...still, a top dollar cup of coffee such as this is still significantly cheaper (oz for oz) than a glass of wine.

why are we willing to shell out good money for a bottle of wine, but scoff at $25 for a pound of good beans? coffee is an everyday drink...you should drink the good stuff. Serving Maxwell House should be a crime!

Hey, now, I actually like working-man's coffee. As long as it is fresh-brewed.

But alas, I don't drink coffee anymore--just decaffeinated heabal teas.

don't forget the wheatgrass juice! had a double shot of that today.
