It was a fun outing because a) we were with friends, and b) we love letting employees (especially baristas) know we appreciate what they do. Sidenote: Did you know that at Costco you can leave comments about the employees and if they get praise for their service they get a free slice of pizza? You should try it sometime and make someone's day. Also, I've found the employees at Costco are incredibly friendly. I've switched from using the self-check out because they are ridiculously fast and very nice. I like talking to strangers...
Anywho, back to the Roasterie. Big Cassie and I had the Costa Rican Peaberry Candellia. We watched the whole process like we had never seen coffee brewed before. And in fact, I had never seen it done this way.

|Quite the scientific set-up, eh? Is that|

And just in case you might be a coffee geek here's a video to show you what we gathered 'round to observe. Notice the bubbles at the end!
Shabbat Shalom, ya'll!
