Now Brewing: Red Barn Coffee

posted by Scot McKnight

RedBarn.jpgGood stuff, this Red Barn coffee. We are drinking Red Barn Espresso, dark roast, and it has a nice taste and great aroma. It’s bold and zesty with just a hint of a smoky taste. It leans toward the burnt side, but just barely … and I don’t like the burnt stuff and I really like this one. Good crema…. just right.

What’s the best coffee you’ve had of late? Who has tasted this fine stuff from Red Barn? (If you’re in Boston, you can get it at Faneuil Hall.)

I brew this stuff in a Rancilio Silvia, and the crema was nice. A friend was over and I asked him to smell the beans and try a cup and he wanted more.

This stuff is roasted in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. When you can get those New Englanders out of a Dunkin’ Donuts and roasting their own stuff, they know what to do — and Red Barn does it well.

One of the many reasons I hang around here is because you are a coffee drinker. I never trust a theologian who does not drink or enjoy a good cup of coffee.

No finer brew than Costa Rican from Cafe Milagro. After 10 days in Costa Rica drinking their coffee, you’ll NEVER drink another!! Check out their organic.

Amen on trusting a theologian that does not enjoy a good cup of Dunkin’ Donuts original. A. :)

Check out Blacksmith Coffee, roasted in Lindsborg, Kansas.

Does a great job bringing out the natural flavor of the bean.

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

Almost Christian 4
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
