Andy’s quest for the perfect cup of coffee! Part 2: Are you a Coffee snob?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

A few years ago, after discussing good coffee with “Angus” at the local Coffee Shop, he described Lindsey & I, as “coffee snobs”, and this was the reason he open a local Coffee Shop, to roast, and produce coffee for local “coffee snobs” on a daily basis, Angus also declared himself as a “coffee snob”, and opened to shop because there was no other coffee shop locally, which did the same. Sadly Angus sold on the business, because his return on investment was too low.

Today my order of coffee beans has arrived from Hasbean.co.uk.

A large and well packed box of coffee beans, delivered by FedEx.

I’ve ordered Has Bean Exclusive: Guachipelin Natural, this is what is in the box of coffee


And Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Gedeb Washed Kurume

I’ll get the grinder ready, and warm up the Chemex!

The Kenya holiday photographs have now been uploaded to our Holiday Photograph Album.

or directly here :- http://andysworld.org.uk/album/Kenya/index.html

Lindsey has sorted, and out of the original 1000+ photographs taken, these are the best 40%!

These photographs are straight from the camera, and re-sampled and reduced for viewing on the website, so they are not the original 12MegaPixel images, they have not been retouched either!

These were all taken with our new CANON PowerShot SX50 HS bridge camera

This picture does not feature in the album, it was later emailed to me, by another group member! As you can see the flask is half drunk, and Lindsey has a smile on her face, so must be smashed!
