When you are are invited out for dinner...you don't really expect to have 'coffee to go'!
But when you go for an evening at the home of these particular friends...you never know what to expect. We had a fabulous dinner...which included an heirloom baked bean dish...and then we went to check up on beans of another sort.
Though we aren't really in the importing business...we brought back 30 pounds of raw Kona coffee beans when we returned from Hawaii...at their request. What ever would they do with all those raw coffee beans? Now we know! We had a tour of our host's backyard coffee roaster...and watched the process of roasting a batch of Kona coffee beans to perfection. We discovered that he imports beans from the coffee growing capitals of the world...and roasts them to perfection in his own backyard. I like this kind of farming...it smells SO good!
