Lateness


I am sometimes an impatient person, clarification: most of the time I am an impatient person. I think I am this way because I am acutely aware of the shortness of the time we have on earth if we are lucky enough to live a long healthy life. Coffee both contributes and deters the impatience and speaking of coffee…

The roaster finally arrived albeit 10 days later than expected. Now what we have to do is set up the ducting and propane gas tank and line and fire the baby up. I cannot wait as the garage is cold and it is JUST November. The timing of things rarely work out and this is a lesson every time for me. Coffee is a great teacher this way too as we wait for coffees to fully mature and harvest and ferment and dry and ship and land and THEN we wait for the truck to pull up to the roastery so we can rip open the bag and toss in the green beans to roast and make delicious brown coffee. We were planning on roasting no later than August, but things always change and this time it was for the better. We were able to purchase my dream machine, a Probat 5 kilo roaster. It is what I learned on, and for what we want to do it is the perfect capacity. We have been thinking about what to do with ourselves while we get this passion project off the ground, and our 3 year old keeps us plenty busy, but with the extra time we have been having some pretty amazing conversations about what we want Maquina Coffee to be. Just you wait.
