My best friend from high school became a serious coffee snob when we were in our 20's. He has been given a rare genetic gift of an incredibly sensitive pallet - he's one of those people who you can blindfold and give a taste test to and he never misses. He eventually became a green coffee buyer for a large coffee company and he's been a World Coffee Cupping Judge. That sort of thing. I have teased with him on and off about sending me some nice coffee - you know, primo stuff... reserved for the best of the best of the best. And he's often teased back that he'll get me something out in the mail... but never has. I finally pressed him for some good coffee and he agreed to send some. Which today when I got back from a 50 mile bike ride (the first decent ride I've had in a week due to a horrible heat wave), there was a box waiting for me on my porch! To totally be a smart-ass to him I did a quick plate & layer Photoshop illustration of me praying to the box and the bag of coffee - all sorts of mystic energy flying all around... Because really; coffee is a gift from the heavens. And I enjoy being a smart ass to my friend. :D Now I'm off to enjoy me a nice big fat cup of it!
