So I don't leave for Guatemala to start my internship till Monday, but I've already got homework! I've started reading "The Coffee Cuppers' Handbook" and selections of "Espresso, the Science of Quality." I'm really glad I started going to Counter Culture Coffee's cuppings (alliteration?) . It's started me down the path of recognizing flavors and aromas so I won't be starting from scratch which will help me move faster and get further. I hope. In addition I'm toting down some 20 plus pounds of green coffee from other regions in the world so I won't be a one hit wonder with only Guatemalan coffees. I'm getting excited! I've been making just about every drink I can think of on my Quickmill, which has resulted in many 3:00 A.M. bed times. 5 days left till blastoff!
