Now Brewing

posted by xscot mcknight

At the suggestion of more than a half of a dozen of friends, I decided to try the famous Jamaica Blue coffee. So now we are brewing some Jamaica Blue. And we got our Zassenhaus hand grinder. The big advantage: fresh grinds give off more aroma.

Drink fresh brewed coffee.
Brew fresh ground coffee.
Grind fresh roasted coffee.
It’s too bad you couldn’t find some JBM that is fresh – I’m sure it would be much better!
The Zass grinders make great coffee at the cost of some effort.
The conical burr is a good solution – if you get tired of the hand crank, the Baratza grinders have a conical burr set (of equal or better quality) and are powered.
I miss my Zass – I sent it with my sister when she went to China to teach English.

Just had some Jamican Blue Iced Coffee, apparently someone out there is bottling it. Very smooth, and it seemed to taste more like the beans and less like a sweetened drink…
Which Zass did you get?

Kansas Bob,
Yep; got it from Amazon.
Tony,
Which Zass? That small one; not the lap one. A nice birch wood boxy little thing. It surprised me how long it took to grind what I put in but it was fun.

Had Blue Mt. coffee fresh in Jamaica about three years ago. Certainly good. But, when it’s all said and done I’d just as soon have fresh Tim Horton’s ….

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science.

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
