I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus and count them but rubbish.

Mission Trip Notes: I Tried

July 19, 2008

On mission trips often times you are taken away from things that though not bad might be good to either get used to not doing as much or not do at all. On the trip there is no tv, radio, distractions and for me COFFEE! Now I did have a cup here and there. But […]

A Most Evil Smell

February 2, 2008

As I have mentioned many times before I work at a local coffee shop. It is a blast and I love being around coffee since its a drink I enjoy very much.  But something fooled me about being in the thick of the coffee shop life. Sometimes some of the sweetest things turn out to […]

Fat Free Jesus

August 19, 2007

   I have been working at a coffee shop for a few months now. It has been great. We sell many products that contain milk. We provide a variety of milks. Whole, fat-free or even that now popular soy milk. Each person gets to choose what it is they like or want. Now I know […]

The Shakes

August 6, 2007

Found this from a friend but his site kept messing it up so no link for him. But its a survey to see how addicted to coffee you might be.  The final score for me is 94% addiction rating. Pretty high. And as an inside joke I must brag its higher than Insipid Garbages mear 92%.

Coffee Tract

August 3, 2007

Perhaps one of the coolest tracts for those of you who are coffee lovers. Its a Coffee Tract. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got on Steve Sanchez’s blog and found it there in a  really cool article. I have been thinking of ways for months now to give out a cool tract but have […]

Intervention Needed?

May 15, 2007

Worked java jo’z last night. The owner comes in from cincy. Says he found a place up there who roasts coffee. He brought in a 5 pd bag of coffee that had been roasted just that afternoon. Super fresh. He and I cupped it and tried it and compared it to the coffee they currently used. […]

Yellow Hands

May 13, 2007

The other dayI told you about my new job at java joz coffee here in town. I have had a blast so far there making coffee and especially playing around with the espresso machine. Playing is a loose term as it is a very expensive machine. Now I have been in food service before, but […]

Reverand Barista

May 4, 2007

Well today begins my second job. Not unfamiliar territory for me. I have had several second jobs before. I worked at Pizza Hut a few years ago. I also have had odd jobs along the way. I was able to relax some over the last couple years, but with a new house payment b/c we […]

Is Fair Trade a Fair Trade?

March 24, 2007

   I will admit that I am a little short on my opinion of Fair Trade Products. Having been a passioned coffee drinker for awhile now I have come across the path of a few Fair Trade Coffee’s. I have had the Fair Trade Sumatran and now have some Ethiopian Sidamo in my pantry as I speak. […]

For My Friend Dave

March 3, 2007

 My friend Dave commented in, “Evolution of a Coffee Lover,” but my attempt to put the pic in my comment did not work. So better yet so all can see Kopi Luwak in action I made it a full story.  Now since Dave is now hunched over his toilet as we speak I will go […]
