Now Brewing — Doubleshot 2

posted by xscot mcknight

Doubleshot 2 coffee company, out of Tulsa [Oklahoma], has a splendid company. I’m brewing Ambergris Espresso Blend. Good stuff.
Here are Doubleshot’s words about Ambergris:

This is a blend that I worked on over the course of two years. It was a working blend, in which I would make small changes constantly to tweak the flavor profile. Now I’ve got it. This is a smooth espresso- not too acidic and definitely no robusta. The complexity of the espresso is what I love the most. It’s buttery and big with crema that stands up to anything you’ve ever had. Earthy undertones, sweet, sweet fruitiness and a chocolate that grows exponentially as it cools (in an americano). There is a lot more going on in there, and it’s in constant flux (because that’s the way coffee is, especially in blends). But I’ll leave the rest to your taste buds. Suffice it to say, this is a huge espresso. If you don’t believe me, ask anyone who’s had it. Or try it yourself.

Mm, Doubleshot. It’s nice seeing a hometown favorite get the A-okay from such a high profile blog. We actually brew Doubleshot espresso at a local coffee here in Stillwater, Ok. Very popular.

Here’s a question for ya. When trying a new coffee what comes first in your evaluation?
1) interest in trying a new flavor
or
2) trying determine if it is “just” coffee (i.e. fair trade)

I used to not think of it much either until I realized what a difference it can be for central american communities that rely on coffee growing. Fair trade, particularly organic fair trade, gives the growers a better price for their crop and doesn’t expose the fruit pickers to pesticides.

I recommend you try Topeka Coffee Company. It is also another Tulsa roaster that is simply amazing.

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
