I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.
English is a bastard soup of a language that has never really followed the rules anyway, waiting in dark alleys to mug other tongues, slipping terms and grammar into its pockets before fleeing.
I am but as my mater-lingua has made me.
Tasting production test batches for a medium and dark roast of the new coffee from Bolivia. This is one with pretty low perceived acidity, smooth, easy drinking. I might make this the base of this year's Holiday Blend, but I have a couple more new things to sort out before I move on to figuring that out.
There are lots of new coffees expected to hit the shelves soon. My shop has so far resisted having an email mailing list mainly because I hate being on those, but I've convinced myself that I can put one together that I personally would not hate so here's a sign up.
I've done a couple other mailing lists with TinyLetter and am satisfied that they do things like unsubscribe and I won't miss the features of other services that exist for dark patterns I want to avoid.
