Yes, that mug does have a picture of Kristin and I on it--Andy must be obsessed with us.
Next stop, Red e. This definitely was one of my favorite shops so far. The barista I talked (and talked and talked) with was super friendly and informative. He pulled me two shots with their single origin yergacheffe from Coava--a micro roastery that roasts in #3 batches. I bought 250g of his Kenyan Kiamabara (for Kristin of course!) The first shot was not so hot.
I had a chance to talk with Billy Wilson for a moment, and asked him if I could get a picture with him like a creepy fanboy (even though I am not a fan). He obliged. Check my previous post for the picture, my creepy side smile is not worth posting twice. This is on my list of "You have to visit, if only once" coffee shops.
That concluded my coffee tour for the day. Tomorrow we are planning on going to Stumptown for a public cupping. Oh Portland!
"Suppose one of you had a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Would he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, 'Come along now and sit down to eat'? Would he not rather say, 'Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink'? Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.' "As a servant, I should be excited that I have someone to serve. My accomplishments are for His purpose, not my own. It is easy to feel very large and important when you live indoors. The world seems to revolve around your wants and efforts. But reality in God's world is very different.
