The First Of Many Tiny Specks Of White

We had our first snow yesterday. Now, it was mainly rain with a few flurries that didn't stick, but it most probably, definitely, I'm almost certain heralded the end of warmth for the season.

October turned out to be a dismal month in terms of blogging. Sorry. We were on the road most of last week for interviews (none of which actually led to anything--oh, well). And, of course, we were sick before that.

Hopefully, we'll get back to your regularly scheduled blogging soon. :o)

Peace-filled Beans

We've loved Peace Coffee for a looooong time. And now we live in Peace Coffee's hometown. That means we get to see their fiercely awesome bicycle peddlers on the Greenway all the time and we can find their coffee in almost every co-op and grocery store.

During the summer, we were lucky enough to see the inside of their green manufacturing facility. It happened when we volunteered for this year's Urban Assault Ride. While we were grabbing tables and chairs from their warehouse, I took a quick look around. I think what I liked best about their facility, besides the bicycles hanging from the rafters, was seeing the photographs of the farmers pasted to each of the different coffee storage containers. A daily reminder of who grows what they roast.

Right now, our two favorite beans are the Yeti Cold Press Blend and the Blue Ox Blend, but they have so many great roasts. Seriously, if you love coffee and you love companies with a conscience, you should check them out. Peace! :o)

Sorry For The Delay...

Just a quick post to say we haven't forgotten how to blog. We've been under the weather the last couple of weeks and still haven't completely shaken the bug. Hopefully, we'll be able to explore and blog more soon. At the moment all energy is being reserved for job hunting. :o)
