I’ve BEAN Busy (How To Roast Your Own Coffee)

Six days ago I made my own coffee for the first time. When I say “made,” I don’t just mean I brewed coffee in a French Press or used magical instant powder. I bought 4 1lb bags of un-roasted washed coffee from the Green Coffee Co. (I was not paid to do this, by the… Continue reading I’ve BEAN Busy (How To Roast Your Own Coffee)

Happy Goat Don’t Float My Boat (Review Of Coffee, Not Goats)

I went to Staples today and to my surprise there was a whole cafe tucked into the corner featuring all things Happy Goat Coffee Company-related.

Eddie and The Mr. E

Eddie fervently sniffs the ground beneath him with his quivering little nose as he scampers across the damp forest floor pursuing a particular smell. He cannot quite place its significance, but its allure is irresistible. It is almost laced with the nostalgia of freshly-fried beetles, just like his mother used to make.

Long Lost, But Not Forgotten (Part 14)

*We are unavailable to take your call. Please leave a message. Thank you for calling.* BEEEEEEP. Um, hello there. Elizabeth? It’s me. I’m, uh, sorry it took me so long to reach out to you.
