The New Capitol Hill

Please join me in congratulating Ryan Jensen in his new adventure as he launches his own coffee house in a space on Capital Hill in D.C. (you know the place, it use to be a coffee shop called Murky).

Check the photos of his new journey at Peregrine Espresso.

The espresso labs at the the Counter Culture Coffee training center will never be the same.

Photos from origin

Photographs taken in coffee growing regions are all the rage this year. Well, that and pour over coffee. Pour over is something I have a great deal of experience with. The chances of ever taking a trip to origin for me is slim to none. This will have to suffice in lieu of origin photos.

My daughter drew this coffee tree on the white board with erase markers. This is currently her favorite medium. After snapping the picture, she added a ladder with a stick man (me) picking ripe cherries from the heavily burdened branches of this gargantuan variety.
