Look who came for coffee!

Coffee buddies

Some of my coffee buddies, sipping Brazil Moreninha Formosa and Yemen Mokha Sanani. Such an international crowd, eh? (L-R) Rogier from The Netherlands, Fr. Henri from Cameroon, Fr. Adam from Tanzania (but he loves to joke he’s Bol-anon), Mathieu from France, and yours truly. When I text these people if they wanna drop by for coffee, I always get a big YES! Sometimes they’d even invite themselves. In this case, Mathieu said he’d love to have one more coffee session before he leaves for France for good in the next few days. Our sort of “despedida” party for Math, over some cups of freshly roasted specialty coffee and sweets from Candy’s. Bon voyage!

    Like the color of your dining area. Pang coffeeshop gyud hehe… Unsa gamit nimo when you serve coffee to your guests, drip or french press?

    It’s the Aeropress inverted method all the way now for me. But the French press would have been nice, a better conversation piece than the all-plastic AP. :-) Especially so with a Frenchie in the group.

    do you do it the americano style (aeropress coffee then add water) or fill the whole chamber with water then press?

  4. admin on December 16th, 2008 9:14 pm

    Add water after, coz you can’t do even just 2 cups with the AP. The brewing chamber is too small.

    Bob, did you use flash for this picture?

  10. Bobby on December 18th, 2008 11:19 pm
