Now Brewing: One Village Coffee

posted by xscot mcknight

The good folks at One Village Coffee, ahem Mike Manney, sent me a package of one of my favorite coffees in the world — and it is ecological, environmental and all that — Colombia. Colombia has a wonderful crema, a nice aroma, and it is creamy smooth in drinking. I’m hoping that more and more stores in the Philly area are selling it, that some churches will partner with One Village, and that this coffee spreads its goodness. Grind some beans and tamp it down and your espresso machine will serve you up a fine cup of coffee.

When an espresso shot is pulled (fancy talk for forcing water through coffee grounds in an espresso machine), it leaves a “cream” at the top; some espresso coffees yield more than others. This coffee yields more than most and it is the tastier brewier part of coffee.

Wow, thats amazing, thanks for the Love, i am the roaster over at OVC, and it’s great to hear feedback. I never tried pulling a shot with the Colombia, but will try it.
I was wondering what machine are you using, and if you had a chance to try the Espresso blend, i think you’ll find it unique.

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

Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

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
