    Yes--we used to pack with a mini-French press & and some pre-ground (the horror) in the dark days past, when you could not find drinkable coffee in a lot of places.
    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    Ethiopian Horse Hararr has been my favorite bulk selection from Fairway these days. Makes an exceptional cup.

    Treated ourselves to some Ethiopian Sidamo for Valentine's Day, that too was flavorful. Not even sure how to describe it, robust like dark chocolate with some fruitiness.

    Jamaican Blue Mountain never goes on sale, currently $100/lb. It must be stale by now, I doubt anybody's buying that. They should just unload it already.

    Blue bottle coffee. If only I had a Blue Bottle snooty barista in Casa del Ice to make me an Americano on demand. As is I'm an AM + PM double shot...

    Drip is fine for me unless I have time for the press, which I do on the weekends. Burr grinder. We have an excellent local roaster in the next town and I restock my supply frequently. Also, they do a darker roast, which I still prefer to the current fashion towards undercooked beans.

    I'm a fan, too.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.
