Everybody Loves a Parade

Everybody loves a parade, and in Vermont, Independence Day is so loved that towns coordinate their event schedules so you can take in more than one. Waterbury’s parade was Saturday, June 30th, and, while herself and I arrived in plenty of time for the official...

This is just so wrong…

I’m hugely appreciative of Grist and their take on issues relevant to the environment and sustainable living, but I have to draw the line somewhere. That line is here: Grist’s Guide to Meat-free Grilling. I come from a cow-town. For me the very definition...

Green Mountain’s Gombe Reserve Gets Tasted

Folks from all over are commenting on Green Mountain’s Gombe Reserve, a coffee offered in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute. My own notes were from a pre-production roast and — honestly — were at least as much about the process of producing...

It’s been quiet around here lately.

About the lack of posts… is it because: I’ve been flirting with some other writing projects. I’ve been doing the conference thing. Again. I’ve been traveling. Again. And getting stuck in airports. Again. I’ve been nursing the cold I got...

What I Did With My Memorial Day Weekend

The Observer: What’s the Hidden Cost of a £2 Latte?

The Observer today features a weighty article on the filmmakers of Black Gold, some of the larger players in the coffee trade, and the challenges facing consumers who seek absolution in their coffee cup. “There are few products of capitalism more pertinent than...

Waxing Nostalgic: The FreshRoast Coffee Roaster

All this talk of home-roasters and roasting in one’s very own kitchen has got me waxing nostalgic. And so I dug around the roasting bench in the garage and excavated my very first coffee roaster — the FreshRoast — and after a bit of dusting and...

Banished Home-Roaster? Meet the Behmor.

More Voices, More Views, More Coffee
