October 24, 2016 Posted in: Brewing, Coffee

My alarm goes off. I get out of bed. What’s my first thought? Oh yes, start boiling water so I can brew my morning coffee. That’s how I start most days, making a delicious cup of coffee with my Hario V60. In my mind, there’s no better way to brew a single cup of coffee…

Discovering the Chemex

April 7, 2016 Posted in: Coffee

What is a Chemex? And how exactly does it work with coffee? About a month ago, I had absolutely no idea what this glass teepee-shaped device was nor how it worked, until a fellow co-worker showed me. He was preparing a Chemex demonstration for a local group at our cafe in Rosemary Beach one day….

Running 40 miles is an absurd distance. Just consider for a moment what 40 miles is. That is, on average, 80,000 steps or 211,200 feet. If the average person started walking that distance, it would take about 13 hours to complete. For the 40 mile run I am referring to, unlike other long distance races,…
