The Big Sick

I watched this movie last night and I loved it so much. It may be the best romantic comedy I’ve ever seen. It’s based on real life events and it watches that way. I love the way it starts and the way it ends. Really, if you haven’t seen it, you should watch it, because it’s amazing.

Triunfo Verde

In honor of National Coffee Day, I bring you Triunfo Verde. This little bag of delight comes from Mexico via Lexington Coffee. Should you buy it? Yes, with a caution. The raisin notes are very strong on the finish with this coffee. That’s not a bad thing unless you don’t like raisins and I know a lot of people don’t. The cherry and fudge flavors are more subtle and upfront, so the strongest flavor here is going to be that raisin finish. A little milk will smooth out the raisin, but kill the cherry and fudge. Manage that as you will. I’m enjoying it black.

Endeavor Season 4

PBS is killing it this year. The latest great thing is that Endeavor Season 4 is out now. For those that don’t know, Endeavor is the prequel for the Inspector Morse series that ran from 1987-2000. If you’ve never watched those, they’re available on Netflix. Inspector Morse was followed by Inspector Lewis, which is also a great show. Endeavor explores Morse’s early career in the sixties and it’s really enjoyable mystery television. Check it out.

Comepcafe Coffee Review

comepcafe

I know I’m a coffee snob, but this is the kind of coffee you don’t want to share with anyone who doesn’t drink their coffee black. It’s so delicious black that there is no reason to waste it by loading it with milk and sugar. I know that’s wrong. I know it shouldn’t matter how people drink their coffee, but I don’t care. At almost twenty dollars a bag, it’s criminal not to drink this black. It’s sweet and mellow and chocolatey all by itself. Save the cream and sugar for lesser coffees.

Kayon Mountain Coffee Review

This single source Ethiopian coffee might be my all time favorite. It is so delicious black that I have trouble not finishing the pot, but since it’s a light roast, it’s caffeine heavy, so sometimes I have to be pealed off the ceiling. The berry and watermelon notes listed on the bag really come through, the chocolate is more subtle. So, so delicious. If you haven’t had Lexington Coffee Roasters coffee go here right now and order some. You won’t regret it.
