Topic: The Coffee Trail -- NYT article (2 msgs / 43 lines)
1) From: Michael Wascher
The New York Times has an article titleled "The Coffee Trail" about travel
to the coffee producing regions of Columbia.
It's available online, though it requires registration (free):http://travel2.nytimes.com/2006/02/12/travel/12coffee.html?pagewanted=1&8=td&emc=td
I wish I were there. I'm looking out at a blizzard, a foot of snow on the
ground and another 4 hours of snow expected. In addition to the snow & 50
mph gusts this storm has thunder & lightning!  Want to see? I'm near exit 8=
a
of the Turnpike, traffic cams for the turnpike are here (scroll down to 8a)=
:http://www.state.nj.us/turnpike/nj-conditions-cams.htmOh well. We have power, only a momentary loss of electricity, and I'm
drinking a cup of  Sumatra TimTim Blangili Longberry. It needs abit more
rest (it has been less than a day), and next time a slightly lighter roast,
but a nice nuttiness to it & good body. Jean doesn't like it though. She
rarely drinks coffee, but I got a half pound of Mokha beans from Jeff Bense=
n
in the bean exchange. Wonderful beans, roasted to perfection, slightly
lighter than I would have roasted them. Jean has had "coffee" (a mug of
warmed milk with a few tablespoons of cofffee & a few teaspoons of sugar)
every time I brewed Jeff's beans. I took a Moka capo to her at work
yesterday.

Well hey, the NYT couldn't be outdone by the Chicago Tribune from a couple
weeks earlier:http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/magazine/chi-0601220308jan22,1,86109=9.story?ctrack=1&cset=true
