Here's a recent breakfast from the Temescal Farmers market in North Oakland.
Two coffees and two danishes ran us nine bucks. A reminder why I don't eat out as much as I used to and why poorer folk often eat fast food. It would have taken another tenner to fill the tanks for a day of moderate energy expenditure.
The coffee this morning was impressive. So impressive in fact that I rushed home and roasted my very own Kenyan AA Auction Lot #526 Tegu. In my sampler pack from Sweet Maria's Coffee, a pound of green beans is the same price as two cups of coffee at the farmers market. My advice to you is this: support your local roaster when you can, in this case Blue Bottle (see previous post), and roast your own at other times. Throw your TV out the window and dedicate an evening a week roasting your own. You'll be glad you did, plus your house and clothing will take on an intoxicating aroma.
