Now Brewing: Waialua Coffee

posted by xscot mcknight

A very kind reader of Jesus Creed sent Kris and me a package of Waialua Coffee from Hawaii (north shore), and we are now brewing and drinking it. [I couldn't find the home site; this site sells Waialua.]
Waialua is a smaller bean, but it pulls a wonderful, rich crema; it has great Nachgeschmack; the aroma in the kitchen is pleasant.

Scott, I have a question. I love coffee, particularly some of my favorite Chicago brands. However, I react strongly to caffeine and am generally trying to stay away from it. Do you have any suggestions for great decaf? I’d like to order some online.

Kacie,
This might need a medical doctor. Don’t most of these brands of coffee — say, Intelligentsia — have a decaf variety? That’s where I’d begin.
Anyone out there know?

Kacie,
You know, I’ve only been impressed with one companies’ decaf – Seattle’s Best. They have a chemical free/swiss water decaf called Organic Twilight. Haven’t tried it, but good chance it is as good or better than their other stuff.
I’m not sure how sensitive you are to the caffeine, but most decaf can have up to about 2.5% caffeine still present in it.

Thanks guys. Yeah, most companies have a decaf variety, but like Aaron said, I’ve heard a lot of people say they are unimpressed with the decaf brews. I can’t handle 2.5% caffeine… that’s enough to wake me up a little, but not make me jittery!

NT scholars are amazing. Not only do they know Hebrew and Greek (both very well), but they also know French and German as well. Add English on top of that, that’s 5 friggin languages. How in the world do you do it Scot?

Thanks for the Hawaiian (manually ground) latte. Even the Hawaiian foam was delish. – Sarah and TK

Sorry about the busted website, I think they no longer sell the coffee direct hence they took down their website.

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. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

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
