"Hello coffee. Meet Mr. Coffee-Bong"
Both of you: Prepare...to pleasure me.
O.K., O.K., I should back up a bit, before you all think I'm too strange. It may be too late for that, but, oh well. It is what it is. My Christmas gift to myself arrived today.
A few years ago - and I don't remember the exact order of events - but a few years ago -Mr. Randall and I exchanged mischevious little gifts. He sent me the best coffee on earth, Kenya AA from zbeanz in Portland, Oregon and I sent him an Aeropress, espresso maker, affectionately-named the "coffee bong." If you have never tried the "Aeropress" to make your coffee, you are missing the whole point of coffee. I mean, once you've tried it, you will never want to make coffee any other way. Period.
So, because zbeanz Kenya AA is so delicious, I can never repay Randall for sending it to me. And likewise, because the product the "bong" produces is so utterly addictive, Randall still blurts out an involuntary curse under his breath whenever he hears its name...
All kidding aside, this is damn fine coffee in a damn fine preparation. The combination of the best beans on earth, roasted to prefection, with the best (and simplest) coffee "machine" on earth is an absolutely wonderful treat. Enjoy!
