It’s been a good coffee year this year. We probably, possibly, have a whole year’s supply if the grown up kids don’t claim too much of it. When I look back, our coffee growing and processing has come a long way in the last few years, since Growing Our Own Coffee parts 1 and 2. We now have about a dozen mature bushes and another dozen coming on, and that will hopefully be enough to let the grown up kids take as much as they like. We bought a coffee pulper recently, which makes it really easy to separate the berries from the beans, and we now send our main coffee crop off to be professionally roasted. It saves a lot of laborious work removing the paper shell since professional roasters have a fan that does that as they roast, and it saves a lot of caffeine spins from breathing too much of the volatiles.
And, we bought second hand a Little Guy coffee maker that goes on an induction burner. It was ridiculously expensive even second hand but it makes real barista quality coffee.
Homegrown, homemade café quality coffee every morning. This simple life is so hard 🙂
