Since a few of us now have subscriptions, I thought it might be worth starting a thread where we can compare notes.   Aptly, this month's package came just as I was finishing the local blend I bough

Have you seen this McDonald's ad? I sort of love it.     (I typoed that second sentence as "I sort of live it" at first. That is also a true statement.)

Reminds me of one of my favorite coffee snob stories. Back when stumptown had just started roasting in NYC, the organoleptic taster and I went to check it out.  I order my pourover. Asked if I wa

But isn't that the Joe you were referring to upthread, when you said:

 

Grumpy and Joe are not good.

 

 

I guess the problem with "our" jit supply chain (finally, some initials which I actually know what they stand for!) is that it is totally out of our, and our supplier's, control.

 

That Counter Culture delivery, which I just received this past week, seems to arrive very promptly (small sample, I know), but your're able to tell them when you want shipment.

I got mine on the 19th. Less of a big deal for me, though – I just fill in with Colonna Nespresso pods when I've messed up my supply chain, and I'm pretty happy with the geisha pods I'm using now.

 

BTW, if you're looking for a Nordic roast in the city, Paper Coffee often stocks La Cabra – though I'm not sure whether they got their New York based roasting operation set up.

I just want to make the rather inane point that, whatever problems there might be with this subscription service, it's worth it.

 

Cuz the coffee is so good (and --  coming as it does from one of the most expensive countries in the world I can't understand how this could be -- well priced).

To be sure, I'm not giving up my subscription, now at 3 bags per month.  I'm just supplementing it with another subscription, which at this point is from Counter Culture, but could easily change to George Howell.  Hopefully, and with proper timing on my end, I won't need to run out and purchase coffee.

Once again, the shipping gods and various other issues that arise when dealing with international purchases have forced me to venture out and purchase beans,

 

So yesterday, Significant Eater and I headed to Joe, their Pro Shop - evidently their main site on W. 20th Street, where I was able to pick up a couple of bags of freshly roasted beans.  

 

They never disappoint, in either the selection of their own stuff, or other fancy schmancy beans they're selling from roasters near and far.

 

But can anyone in the states make a proper macchiato?  It's a tiny bit (i.e. marked) of steamed milk on an espresso, not half a cup of steamed milk!
