I grew up in Seattle and one day I was drinking a cup of coffee and I realized it wasn't pre-ground like all the others I had had before. It was incredible; it was Stewart Brothers, Henry's Blend. I bought a Melita and made my own drip coffee for a few months and then went to range top espresso and steamer. That was 1976 and I followed all the small batch roasters until there product demand caused them to increase there roast size for distribution. They all broke my heart, but there was always a new guy on the block committed to the highest level of quality available. I just hated saying goodbye to an old friend.
