Quiet Lately

It’s been quiet on the blog lately due to a crazy season in our neighborhood.  The spring/summer children’s activities have commenced, gardening and lawn care are in full swing, we have a puppy and 8 growing chicks, who need an mobile coop (warning – pdf there!).  So, I’ll be building that, along with some hot boxes for gardening.

On the coffee front, I had a nice Rwanda Kinunu Bourbon/India Liberica blend yesterday.  It was 75% Rwanda, 25% Liberica.  So, it was nice.  Straight Rwanda this morning, both via Chemex.  I’ve been pressing exclusively for a while now and have lost the flavor nuances.  Hope to find them sometime soon so I can once again enjoy that prep.

Solo Deo Gloria,

    I couldn’t quite read all the dimensions of that ark, Jason, but it looks like it ought to be big enough (32 sq. ft needed). Looks fairly easy to build, too, though I think the Chicken tractor I built might be somewhat simpler. I could move my chicken tractor around the garden by myself, but was always wishing I had someone to help. I hope you get your help! 🙂

    The DW will aid in moving the chickens about the yard. Who knows, if it’s light enough, the kids might be able to aid in the periodic relo.

    As I was making my coffee this morning, I realized that I owe a lot to you and your blog. This morning I was pressed for time so I simply eye-balled the amount of coffee I put in the grinder, then added a little extra to make sure there was enough coffee for the quantity of water.

    Thanks to you and your coffee/water ratios I knew that the coffee would still taste good even if it was a little stronger than usual. And it did! 🙂
    In the past, I would have taken the extra time to measure exactingly no matter what . . . and I would probably have been a little out of sorts because of that.

    Also, if not for you and your preference for “rustic’ coffees, I might easily have found myself stuck in a rut with nothing in my stash but Ethiopian and Kenyan coffees. Though I still like those the best, I do make a conscientious effort to find one or two rustic-like coffees to keep on hand.

    So, thanks for all the great coffee discussions, Jason! I have profited from them very much.
