Coffee Talk with George Howell at True Grounds in Somerville, MA
This Thursday November 17th, George will be hosting an informal discussion at True Grounds in Somerville. He will be discussing the path coffee takes from the tree to your cup and what makes a high quality coffee. George will share his coffee expertise and answer questions.

Coffee Tip – If you are traveling for the holidays or visiting friends, bring your favorite coffees along for the trip
For those of us who love coffee, we never want to be without our favorites for even one day. So stop worrying about how well grandma's brewer will work and bring along your own simple brewer. The French Press is one extremely simple and versatile way of brewing coffee. Its small shape makes it easy to fit into your suitcase and all you'll need is coffee and hot water. Always remember that not everyone drinks coffee, so make sure you leave prepared. Bring a bag of pre-ground coffee with you (freeze it the second you arrive!) and either pack a French Press or a Melitta (and, heck, if you have the space, bring your Technivorm). This way, even if grandma drinks instant, you'll get to drink your own great coffee.
Coffee makes a unique and special gift when going to parties or gatherings. When so many guests already bring wine or baked goods, why not present your host or hostess with something different and delicious? Plus, you'll probably get to enjoy it during the event.
At last another great Sumatra Mandheling has come our way – and we have snatched up all there was, so our supply should last a few months. It is easily equal to the Sumatra we had last year at this time: it is wonderfully clean and ripe, full of syrupy-bodied herbal butterscotch flavor. The coffee beans were harvested in the region of Lintong from plants of ancient lineage going back to the early Dutch plantings of the early seventeenth century. There is no other Sumatra Mandheling in the US that can hold a candle to ours for craftsmanship, clarity and conviction of expression. The Sumatra Mandheling is now available on our online store at http://www.terroircoffee.com/store/
