Vacation DIY project done: Single-dose espresso bean storage in test tubes.

(Two of the three beans are cheap roasts, and the one good roast with 15 shots is gone in 1.5 weeks or so, so storing the beans like that isn't an issue for freshness! The other, darker roasts, are fine being stored like that for more than a month.)

Coffee!


Notes from my (virtual) coffee plantation tour today (Greenwell Farm, BI, HI)

#coffee
 

One Day


The hangover was bad, and I needed coffee before the meeting. I got off the bus and looked around. There was a small kiosk I had never tried. Someone was walking away from it carrying a cardboard tray with four coffees, it smelled divine. I hurried over.

“Americano, strong, black, please.”

The strange hooded figure inside nodded, and said in a gravelly, inhuman voice, “One day.”

“One day?” I repeated, wondering what payment app this referred to.

“One day of your life. I’ll give you the coffee you crave, and you will die one day earlier than you would have.”

“What?! Who would trade...”

The vendor gestured for me to step aside with a wave of its... talons, as a woman hurried over.

Ignoring me, she addressed the vendor, “My car keys. Original, please, not the spare.”

“One day.”

She held her hand over a contactless reader until it beeped.

The vendor held out a small basket, from which she retrieved a set of car keys, nodded, and hurried off.

“Wait, the price is one day for whatever I want?”

“For whatever you need.”

“I need to pay my mortgage,” I tried.

“I don’t deal in money,” it said.

I tried to focus. I didn’t get hangovers so easily when I was younger. Hmmm...

“I’d like the health I used to have, before...” I paused, and the vendor waited.

“I’d like the health and constitution I had when I was 22,” I said decisively.

“One day.”

“That’s all? I’ll be as healthy as I was twenty years ago, and it’ll only mean I die one day sooner? No catch?”

It nodded, so I put my hand over the reader, and felt a slight jolt as the reader beeped. I felt vigorous, and my back pain was gone. The hangover was still there, but felt less threatening.

“Bargain,” I said.

“You’ll be back,” said the vendor.

“Never, life’s too short as it is. And youthful health is all I need to enjoy it.”

I began to walk away with a swagger, then stopped. I still really, really wanted some coffee.

Hard to believe it's been 11 months since I last dropped in here. Seems about right, considering my habit of giving up Facebook for Lent (even though I don't formally observe Lent in any religious sense). I'm glad to see #Pluspora is still thriving. I hope I'm allowed to slink back in through the back door, help myself to #coffee, and pretend that I never left. Will you let me do that?

Not exactly #newhere, but it feels like it - welcome to those who really are!

Interested in #fiction, #poetry, #blogging, #travel, #photography, #crochet, and #kitchenscience (cooking with nitroglycerin sounds like a blast, doesn't it? LOL)

NOT particularly interested in conspiracy theories, fascism, cryptocurrency, bigotry, spammers, or trolls.
 

Welcome to checkin for Tuesday, Feb 4!


Whats the one thing that comes to mind on pluspora? Same procedure, checkin! Take it as a early morning / afternoon / or late night opportunity, whatever your timezone brings with it. You’re welcome to say hi anytime, or just wave or have a cup while you run/swim/fly by, #newhere or regular.

We were chatting tea and snacks yesterday, and we dug out pictures of markets that offer tea by weight. So let's talk street markets, farmer's markets, and those for delicatessen and conoisseurs. (You know, as a suggestion.) While this is inevitably local, leave out whatever location detail if you wish, otherwise feel free to describe your favourites! Markets at home or on holiday. Next town or farmyard. Post pictures if you have them, signature foods or specialities. Describe what you like best, or not so much. And don't forget to take a pixel drink from the bar, #tea, #coffee or other, and make yourself comfortable. :)



What is checkin?

:)) You're quite welcome. Glad you enjoyed. Meanwhile, get your Cream on!
I love that band, really. Just watched a documentary on "the terrible Mr. Baker", very interesting (not what you call a "mellow", sociable guy! But super-into African and other rhythms). Last on Cream: I think one of their songs is a metaphor where "we" are now (U.S. and some other places "experimenting" with democracy):

Ah, your lucky day (maybe) - as I've been sifting through 60+ open tabs to close what I'm done with , I came across this: Beware of Mr. Baker

And as for the way things are going in some places, a Mother's Lament

Have a great weekend!

Oh waiter!!


More Coffee, por favor!

Maybe it's time! (Por favor! Mas Cafe!)

Cafe y Pan


Music from an international group of musicians, Svenskarna, mostly based in rural Sweden.
Photos are entirely my own, as is the video. Mm, coffee.... More please!

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. Well.. not really, more like #omnipresent. LOL Um, I like Victorian stuff, #coffee, and just schlepping about the #interwebs.

Every day is International Coffee Day as far as I'm concerned, but FYI. :-)

Sunday is National Coffee Day: Here’s Where to Get Your Free Cup of Joe

"Please pass the sugar. Tomorrow, September 29, is National Coffee Day, a day that celebrates the rich, delicious hot (and sometimes iced) beverage that so many of us love to start the day with."

"To celebrate, many coffee houses and businesses are offering customers free or discounted cups of coffee."

"Here’s where to get yours."

#coffee

Yesh, we connoisseurs love the coffee as is, pure taste. No cream, no sugar, no syrup, and on-demand (or close to it) ground beans. Oh, and I pre-warm any cup with a shot of hot water. (The tin can is just a convenient container, I don't buy that brand any more.) The procedure sets me up for the day, serves two cups from one pot, overall a couple of minutes well spent.

What's your favourite coffee ritual?

As a #coffee #geek and #sci-fi #nerd, this is absolutely #heaven!

A yawn is a silent cry for coffee. Stay hydrated. Stay grounded. Drink coffee.
