I generally brew coffee at home that I get from the grocery store on sale. Not sayin that I do not appreciate a complex cup o joe, but I'm generally fine with Folgers. I decided to really drive off the LBYM tracks recently and purchased a package of the above organic coffee. I don't know if it's the Arabica beans grown in the shade or not, but that stuff brews a mean pot of blackbrew.

I recommend it.

Woah, check out their website - looks like it's run by the lost tribe from Berkley. They even have a drum circle this Thursday night. Keep the People's Republic of Austin Weird baby!

Yep, they are a bastion of Austin Weirdness. We enjoyed their coffee several years ago, then got a couple of under roasted bags in a row and gave up on them. Glad to hear that they are putting out good coffee again. Maybe we will give them another try.
