December is here and life is quite ok. Loving my new job with its endless stream of interaction design puzzles, and the nice people who work there. Coffeewise I am brewing the occasional espresso at home and stopping by Java espressobar a couple of times a week. The stuff they serve there is always top notch. I had a lovely cappa the other day, and while looking around I noticed that they're selling the price winning "Hacienda la Esmarelda, Geisha" for 348 kr / 250g (!), as well as offering a clover cup for 48 kr. 6,5 norwegian kroner is about 1 us dollar. So it is quite an expensive coffee. Can't but wonder who buys it, but I have the utmost respect for the work they do to offer us these great coffees. The Esmeralda is not the only great coffee they have on the menu. I tried a Kenya "Leana" last week which had a wonderful aroma of blue berries. Will definitely try the Esmeralda from the Clover next time.
Coffee at work is horrible :), and I am not saying it because I am a coffee enthusiast. It just plain is and people are pissed off. The machine we have is "Bolero XL" and it is a disaster in every respect. Thank god we have a Moccamaster drip maker next to it.
Besides coffee I am really into artisan bread these days. I love the texture, aroma and flavour of the type of bread they make at "Åpent bakeri" (sourdough french style). It is strange how a loaf bread of bread can really make my day. 12/02/2006 08:17:00 PM
