|07:24 am - coffee|
There isn't a good place to set up a roasting corner here at the new house, at least not yet. During the warmer months I can probably roast out back on the deck, but not during the winter.
So I found myself in the grocery store coffee aisle for the first time in a fair while, looking for coffee beans. I was delighted to discover Moka Joe Coffee out of Bellingham (of all places). They seem to be doing pretty much what I'd want to do were I to start a coffee roasting company. Organic, free trade, and focusing on buying from small farmers and co-operatives.
I got myself some of their Timor, and I'm enjoying it.

Yay! Moka Joe!
The Co-op has "house brand" coffee which is consistently 7.99 a pound and goes on sale for 6.99 a pound, and they go through it pretty quick so it's always relatively fresh. I have it on good authority that half their house brand coffee is roasted by Moka Joe, the other half by Tony's.
