Back in Calgary

Despite my hopes to acquire a job in the mineral exploration industry, I have returned home to Calgary to save on rent and spend some time here. I’ve paid a visit to Bumpy’s and managed to chat with a few old friends there. The cappuccinos courtesy of Mike, were excellent. As I think I’ve got a job lined up in the downtown core (yes, that means this summer, I’m no longer employed in the coffee industry), I’ll probably be frequenting Bumpy’s a fair bit.

I’ve yet to visit Phil and Sebastian in the Farmer’s Market. I really really want to, but this past weekend didn’t work out. So I’m aiming for Friday before a barbeque I plan on going to in the area.

I’m on my last bit of Intelly’s Gaturiri Kenya Auction Lot… it was an excellent coffee that allowed me to get through a whole lot of early morning mapping at my 2nd year geology field school last week.

Big congrats to Heather Perry, 2007 USBC champion, and all of the other finalists. It was quite the competition from what I read!


On tap

49th Parallel El Salvador La MontaƱa
Excellent coffee for everyday drinking. Well expressed acidity and classic El Salvador profile.

Bulleit Bourbon
By far the best bourbon available in BC for the price. $35 for a bottle gets you the highest rye content bourbon on the market. Lots of spice and typical bourbon corn sweetness. Excellent on its own, but also makes a mean Old Fashioned. Better than Knob Creek in my books and pretty close to Woodford Reserve.
