My dear, dear bride of almost eleven years gave me a great gift for my recent birthday. Several varied bags of some of SweetMaria’s best! So, last night, I started the roast. Here’s what I whirled around the popper.
- Sumatra Classic Mandheling
- Colombia Huila Valencia
- **Guatemala Antigua – Finca Retana Yellow Bourbon
- Ethiopia Organic Limu
- **Brazil Coromandel – Fazenda Sao Joao
- Papua New Guinea – Kimel Plantation
- Sumatra Blue Batak – ‘Tarbarita’ PeaBerry
** = no longer available. Sorry.
This morning, it was the PNG since it does fairly well on a short rest. All but the first two were roasted last night; the first two are long gone :-). Looking forward to enjoying each of these more through the week.
On reading, I’ve been reading Eugene Peterson’s “Eat This Book”, which emphasizes a reading of scripture more akin to eating – taking in the words and making them part of you for spiritual nourishment. One of the pictures he plays with during the first portion of the book is of a dog enjoying a bone and growling over it in pleasure. That’s the same way, he argues, that we should partake of scripture. It’s been a challenge for me to read and reevaluate my handling of scripture. It’s been humbling and encouraging. Suffice it to say that I’m not where I was with respect to my initial 2008 Bible reading plans. It’s a much slower, deliberate pace.
