Iron Chef America - Episode 8 of Season 6 (2008) Show # IA0610 featured coffee beans as the secret ingredient. I didn't see the episode, but I understand Cat Cora used a Florida coffee and that there was little or no evidence of specialty coffee knowledge. Did anyone see this?

~ Crystals of Aged Gouda with Soft Boiled Eggs, Baby White Asparagus and Huehuetenengo Thumb Prints

~ La Esmerelda Crusted & Grilled Wagyu with Quenelles of Fig Chorizo and Vanilla Plantain Sauce

~ Finca Mauritania Ravioli filled with Chestnut Confiture served in a Parmigiano-Reggiano Tuille with Beurre Blanc

~ Medley of Guatemalan Coffee Caviars with Zacapa Centanario Rum Aspic served with El Injerto Granita

Well, here's a very simple one I'm working on this week-

We have a simple espresso blend at the moment, just Brazil Yellow Bourbon Natural roasted to first crack +4 minutes at 419 degrees- and Guatemala FTO Maya Ixil roasted to 1st + 4:30 at 421, then blended. It comes out peanut butter and jelly. I love it.
We're working on some simple white bread- homemade roasted/salted/ground peanut butter, couldn't be simpler, and grape preserves- farmer's market. Start with the shot, finish with a small sandwich.

Also- we'll be holding a contest for the next few weeks- the "sprobama" versus the "maverick"
Each time a 'sprobama' is ordered- $1.00 goes to Obama for president, each time a 'maverick is ordered, $1.00 to McCain.
Will post photos and results.

Also- I uploaded some good macro photos of Espresso pouring- at 2x real-size. Good detail, especially of my ancient spouts. They have since been replaced. :)
What's the score of Sprobama vs. Maverick?

I want one of you PB&Js!
