#WeekendCoffeeShare 08/20/16

If we were having coffee, I would first have to apologize, because it’s been a while since we’ve shared coffee in this space. Things have been hectic and I’ve been finding it pretty difficult to slow down and savour my coffee. I mean, I’m so busy these days, I got my coffee routine down to 3 mins – grind, brew and chug.

Today however, I’m relishing in the recreational aspect of coffee on a Saturday. Today, we’re gonna sloooow right down and savour the moment while we catch up.

My coffee routine starts with the choice of beans. I bought some absolutely delicious Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee back in June and have been chinksin* on it so that it could last and last. Choose beans, then prepare grinder. It’s not the best, but it gets the job done.

Pour over last Saturday in Grand Riviere.

Beans, nicely ground we move on to the brew method. Today, we’re going to explore pour over. It’s Saturday, we have the time. While the coffee drips, let’s catch up.

Back in May, I shared that I was on a new desk at work and things were feeling a bit like the first day of school. Well, four months later, I’ve settled down a bit. I still feel some anxiety hitting ‘send’ on an email, but it has gotten better.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that because of work, I missed the opportunity to go to BlogHer16 this year and connect with some of my favourite people, but I am a firm believer in you are exactly where you need to be, so I’m not stressing to much. If I make it to BlogHer Food 16 or BlogHer17…it was meant to be.

If we were having coffee, I would pour your first cup. Savour my first sip and settle in to hear all your news. So tell me about your week and your plans for the rest of today, I’ll listen while you talk.

*****#WeekendCoffeeShare is an awesome link-up where coffee (or some other awesome beverage) is being shared over great conversations.

#WeekendCoffeeShare originated at Part Time Monster:

I started the Weekend Coffee Share last year after lots of feedback and several months of writing posts that imagined a conversation with my blog readers that started with the “if we were having coffee” line. The coffee share runs on the weekends, and there aren’t a lot of rules—-posts just need to be formatted like a conversation over beverages (we’ve had tea-drinkers and cocktail-hours as well as coffee) AND be written within the past week (so you don’t need to publish on the weekend to join the link-up). The hashtag #weekendcoffeeshare is in use all weekend on Twitter and Facebook, and it is sometimes used a bit during the week as well. .~Part Time Monster

    Loved it and would love to share a coffee with you. We are having rains here in India, and I can imagine sitting under an awning, listening to the raindrops and having hot coffee. We have our own brands ( Coffee is grown in India) and can have a relaxed conversation on the past week…
