nefhiriel: (team coffee)
Well, my world's continued to be rather white lately, and very pleasantly unhurried and uninteresting (hense the lack of posts). However, last night, my mom, my sister, and I went to a "Coffee Class" at our local coffee shop (the same one we go to for our writers' group). 

It was really neat. The owner (our neighbor) showed us a video all about how coffee is grown, harvested, and roasted--I didn't realize quite how much work it is!  Since good coffee has to be grown at high elevation--which usually equals uneven terrain--they can't even use machines to harvest it. The weather is also hot all year-round in the places where coffee is grown, so, even on the same tree, the berries ripen at different times. That being the case, it has to be done manually in order to differentiate... Oye, but it looks like mundane work (I don't think I'll ever throw the dregs away again :).
