Bottomless cups of coffee

We’ve been enjoying time with Zack and Sarah this week.

But I’ve been particularly enjoying the present they brought with them…

Mmm. Delicious.

And, in related coffee news… I received my new toy in the mail yesterday. Via the Espresso Workshop – they will take your unused portafiller (the handle thing you put your coffee in to use in your machine) and lop the bottom off for $40 – the cheapest naked portafiller I could find online (short of cutting the bottom of myself, which I didn’t want to risk).

Here’s what my coffee will look like when I take a photo of it… (picture from the espresso workshop product page)…

Obama Blend

A Jefferson coffee roaster has launched the Obama Blend – a mix of Indonesian, Kenyan and Hawaiian beans. Longfellows started producing the blend recently after the owner’s son had the idea while standing in the shower. Campos Coffee in Sydney has been producing their own Obama Blend for months – at least since June.

At the moment I’m drinking Ethiopian Yirgacheffe roasted in a breadmaker using a heatgun. Ethiopia is the home of coffee. The Yirgacheffe is spectacular and I’ve been looking for some way to mention it in a post in the last couple of days.
