black. coffee.

I'm sitting here drinking black coffee. The thing is, I never drink my coffee black. Never, ever, ever. I also always drink mild blends of coffee, like organic shade grown mexican, and fair trade. I've realized I don't like "breakfast" blend of anything, be it coffee or tea. I hate most breakfast teas for some reason. They are what my mother / grandmother would call "pish vassa" which, if you know yiddish, is not a good thing.

Why am I drinking black coffee? This is aged sumatra, which when it was on sale at starbucks was $25 per pound. I had a french pressing of it and found that I enjoyed the taste, and realized I was enjoying it without sugar or milk. All coffee tastings are done sans sugar and milk. I don't understand what it is about this coffee that makes it so damn good. It's a "smooth" coffee but it's stronger in taste than what I'm used to. Yet I drink it black, because to me this coffee just tastes that good. The only thing is that it's even more heat sensitive than flavoured coffee. By that I mean that even having it remotely not hot has it tasting like rubbish.

One of my most wonderful friends has an LJ and I am pleased. I think I'm starting to move past the whole HST death thing. To a certain extent. My client keeps reminding me about it when he asks me to improve my writing for the blogs and forums, and reminds me that HST used to copy over hemingway verbatim to get better at writing. It's almost like he dies again when he is reminding me.

I've been making a lot of entries public. I don't know why. I guess I almost don't mind if random people from anywhere in the world can read this.
