Good times with Good Friends

Yesterday, Josh, Stef, Jeremy and I went to a pumpkin patch to pick our GREAT PUMPKIN for the season.

It was a lot of fun.

The best part, in my opinion, was the fields and field of vegetables. Even though it was way past the peak of season, it was still very interesting to see the home of many vegetable that are on my table. (I cannot wait to have a garden.)

We also got to see cotton plants. It was almost surreal.

First and Foremost. My post was not edited and you were not supposed to see it until I was finished.

On another note, I have no problem with corporations. Not all corporations are bad. Even though I could probably find a million things wrong with the corporations listed in my "attack." You just have to choose your battles. I enjoy coffee and food so those are my battles.

My problem with Starbucks stems from the fact that they are promoting the downfall of a proper espresso and just plain selling stale coffee. This is not a good business practice.

Coffee is meant to be roasted within ten days of being consumed. Hence, the roast to cup phenomenon. According to 3Cups, "Once roasted, coffee beans start to release the carbon dioxide that contains the precious aroma and flavor. After about 10 days it really starts to break down and lose the character that makes it great. Coffee may not look any different after 10 days, but it tastes different." Do you see a roast date on Starbucks coffee? It sits on the shelves for months.

In order to make each store the same around the world, Starbucks has changed their espresso machines to automatically tamp and pour a shot. Pouring an espresso shot is an art form. It has to be altered according to different beans, climate and weather, etc. If you automate this, how are you going to do this without compromising the taste and quality of the espresso. That's Right, You CANNOT!

Go ahead and keep going to Starbucks. Sometimes, Josh and I are even forced to visit on ocassion. Just realise that you are not getting quality coffee. It's the midwest mentality that you have, my friend.

So go buy your Mac Book, and quit harrassing me. :-)
