First coffee


I just couldn’t wait.  The temptation was too great.  On my way out the door this morning I couldn’t resist packing my baby Chemex and a water heater along with a beautiful coffee from Byumba, Rwanda called Humure.  After lunch I kicked on the water heater and brewed a cup.  The lovely fragrance of orange and strawberry filled the room.  In a really great moment, one of the refrigeration guys working there walked by and seemed very interested and approving of so simple and beautiful a device.  When I told him that this was how we would be preparing our coffee in the bar he seemed duly impressed.  I take it as a great omen for the future of ultimo coffee.

      Hehehe, he wouldn’t want to drink my simultaneously over and under extracted brew anyway, but he’s welcome by anytime. 🙂 It’s looking like at least another month. I wish I had a more concrete date to give you. We’re just plodding along…
