Viva la Caffe Vita!

posted by Scot McKnight

CafeLatte.jpgTim Soerens, a missional follower of Christ in Seattle, stopped by recently and we shared lunch. To my delight, he gave me a batch of Caffe Vita coffee, an exquisite coffee from Seattle. We’re drinking Organic Peru Chaupe, and this stuff is very, very good. Smooth, creamy, and makes me want to drink a second cup. It gives a nice crema; has a nice sweetness to it.

I’m about to wonder aloud again what are the best coffees, and it’s hard to top Chicago’s Intelligentsia or Philly’s Chestnutt Hill or Asheville’s Dripolator, but this Caffe Vita bean makes up one fine coffee.

Do I hear a witness? What do those fine folks from Seattle know about Caffe Vita?

there is a roaster in Rhode Island called New Harvest that deals exclusively in organic, fair trade beans. personally, i don’t think intelligentia holds up, but i suspect i’ll be thrown out of town for saying that.

If you’re in the Northwest (like we are), why drink ANYTHING but Stumptown? It’s based in Portland, but they have a brewer in Seattle as well.
(I’m originally from Chicago – and I’ll take Stumptown over Intelligentia any day.)

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
