We are very excited that we will be serving Charlottesville’s local coffee roaster – Shenandoah Joe – in the bakery!! We are working with the owner, Dave, on a custom roast to be the Great Harvest Blend. He dropped by 3 samples yesterday for us to taste test.
[You know I was excited for a reason to gulp down beautiful cups of rich coffee!!]
I was coffee free for a month and think I am no longer dependent. I’m adding it back – half a cup every other day at the most. I love coffee. I think coffee is great and healthy. I just didn’t like getting headaches! Hopefully I can keep up the intermittent consumption until winter returns.
Today we slept in till 7:30 (well, Matt slept until 9!!!!!!!) and put on a pot of roast #1
One of my very favorite aromas in coffee is what I would describe as a “rich and round milk chocolate roast.” That’s the only way I know how to describe it! Matt and I don’t like burnt aromas in coffee – but there is often a deep round, smooth aroma that I love and this blend had it!
Served with an amazing bowl of carb-a-licious oats!
Whipped banana oats made with half homemade Scottish oats and half rolled, plus banana, salt, chia seeds, vanilla and milk. On top: crumbled Great Harvest Warrenton Cinnamon Scone and Lynda’s Granola. Plus TJ’s Sunflower buttah. Yummmmmmm!!
Just watched a few episodes of House Hunters. Boy are houses in Cincinnati and Atlanta cheap!!
Looks like we’re taking a bit of a break from the bakery – at least in intensity. We still might go over and do some minor things, like working on our video for GH franchising.
Happy Mother’s Day MOM!!
I hear the Bears have a little something for me too!
Have a great one!
