  1. Love the pictures! I would love to hear about the “drug” culture…what are the pervasive opinions? How does one acquire pot? Is it any good? etc… Also, just curious, what is your favorite “grocery store” coffee? Coincidentally, I’m currently in love with Gevalia’s “Guatemala” 🙂

    • Where the coffee is from will determine a lot, but not all, of the flavor. I like Guatemalan because it’s typically chocolatey and arabica. The first thing I look for in by-the-bag is a roast date. The “sweet point” is usually reached 7 or 8 days after the roast date. After that, it’s usually good for another 2 or even 3 weeks as un-ground beans. Which degree of roast (darkness) is another topic and maybe the most important. If it has an 80 or higher Q-grading score (which qualifies for specialty coffee) then you know it’s “clean” or almost free of defects.

      So long answer short: I don’t care who sells it as long as it’s what I like, fresh, and high quality.
