This morning, I finished off the roast batch I had of the Tanzania Blackburn Estate AA. What was left was a bit more than I usually use for a FP, but I went ahead, anticipating a strong, bold cup. The 56g certainly didn’t disappoint. The cup was smooth, with the dominant feature being the winey notes Tom mentioned in the cupping notes (see above link). The intensity, also as Tom mentioned, did peak as the cup cooled, which made for an ever-improving cup in the Travel Mug during Sunday School this morning.
Speaking of Sunday School, we’re doing an inductive study of Jonah. It’s primarily for learning the inductive method, with the benefit of examining a very familiar, yet rich and often mis-remembered, book. Even though we only finished Jonah 1, it’s still been an enriching work. I’m disappointed that I’ll miss next week, but look forward to picking up with Jonah 3 on August 10th.
Speaking of August 10th, I’m preaching again. The Sunday School 10 month interlude in Isaiah kept me out of the pulpit for most of that time. Now finished, I’ll be back instead for our pastor while he’s away, returning to Ecclesiastes 5, where I last left off. I’d appreciate your prayers for that. I’ll likely be pretty quite here between now and then. We have two birthdays to celebrate (one on August 10th), some travels, a bathroom to update, and a sermon to preach. Not to mention the daily affairs of work, family, gardening, pets, chickens, etc.
Solo Deo Gloria,
