Brent Spilled The Beans


Someone, we’ll call him “Joshua,” sent us beans for our new ( used ) coffee grinder.  We gave them a go.  Brent poured them in the hooba-joob.  It went a bit crazy so some beans escaped into the post-grind dispenser.  Don’t worry, we spent a few minutes herding the beans back to their paddock and we carried on.


Zelie was our barista today.  Sassy, so keep your order straight.  Don’t give her any lip.


First shot was great in taste, but needed more tweaking with the grind.  After a sip, we tipped it into the coffee ice cream bucket.  Great for coffee ice cream, not perfect for espresso shot drinking. Another tweak with the grind.


We really love the flavor.  Maybe because it’s from England.  Maybe because it was a gift.  But really, I think the coffee was genuinely lovely.

Brent decided it was time to try a latte.  That’s when the crema really shined.  Perfect shot.


He’s a “flat white” man, but for the camera, he did a bit of froth.  A “flat white” is an Australian coffee for a person who doesn’t want all the sprinkles and froth.


Brent demonstrates his coffee art.  We never know what he’s going for.  It’s a mystery.


The final product often ends up as a scorpion or a Shmoo ( I’ll let you look that up ).  It’s like reading tea leaves.  Today was a Shmoo.


Latte sips and Cadbury chocolate, things are right in this world.  Thanks again, “Joshua!”
