vitauta, perhaps you should donate one of those Keurig's to our DC kitchen.

I'm sitting down with a maple coffee and a bit of an attitude. I got the word yesterday that I'm switching to a new team starting Sunday. That's not a big issue, but not having the same days off is going to mess me up down the road. BAH. I'm so happy with the team I'm on right now so I'm a bit sad about that too. I know I need to support this other team but I am definitely pouting.

Anyone want to come kick my butt and tell me to shape up and get off the pity train?

the keurig machine is playing dead again. i stored it away in the cabinet under the sink. if anybody can fix it, we'll have a backup coffeemaker for in here. what's bubba working on today? pounding that hammer like he means it, isn't he? can hardly hear yourself think...he married? no, no reason, just wondering....poor alix. they've got her switching teams at work, and don't give her hardly any notice, either. oh, she'll be just fine, you know alix...this time next week she'll be all gung ho--have that new team whipped into shape and the whole program restructured from stem to stern.:) i was hoping to catch her while she was still here today. i left a book for her, in that green tote up there---on top of the fridge, and a note....save me some of whatever kades might bring by for us good to eat, straight out of her oven, would you? some people round here calling it "ma's bakery"....:)

Hey vitauta, I'm back. I got a chance to process a bit and I'm feeling better about the whole thing. Its still going to take me a while to get into the groove, but hopefully not too long!

I brought doughnuts! Croissant doughnuts with chocolate drizzle. I've been playing with the deep fryer.

Holy cow! Is that Bubba out there or did Thor stop by for a visit. Um...I think I'm just going to sit here in the bay window for a bit to...supervise the digging of the hot tub hole.

I was playing with oatmeal scones, again! I diced up two granny smith apples and stirred those in...yum. Made a little vanilla custard to go with them and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

I roasted up a pound of coffee for y'all to share. This one comes from the Nyeri region of Kenya. It's called Karagoto Peaberry after the factory where it was processed which is part of the FCS (Farmers Cooperative Society). This area and the FCS is famous for producing the very best Kenyan coffees.

The dry ground coffee sets the tone for the cup. When brewed there are intense dark fruit notes, lush Asian pear, plum, and raisin, as well as macademia nut roast scents. The cup is syrupy, with many layers of fruit; Italian plums, red currant jam, honey, drinking cocoa, and a unique touch of toasted coconut. It is a lively and acidic cup with a bright zest of candied lime, which turns more toward a tangerine brightness with a slightly darker roast.

Bubba called this morning. He wanted me to remind you to start parking your cars round the front of the building. The forms have been delivered to the site and he wants to set the forms, plumb the drains, and then pour foundation late next week.

Just popped by to see what was happening. I really like what you've done with the place!

.40, your description sounds like this coffee is something to be eaten with a spoon over ice cream!

But, then I would have to grind the beans and I'm lazy.
