Light or Dark roast coffee? Which is better?


Coffee, like almost everything, is highly a matter of taste. Once you get to the point where you are; 1. grinding your coffee fresh each morning (I use a conical grinder and do not know how I survived without one) and making the brew within 10 minutes of grinding. 2. Using filtered water- When I make coffee, I want to taste the coffee. I am not a fan of tasting chlorine, fluoride and/or whatever else might be floating around in the tap water. 3.

Addam’s Family comes to Denver

I am just going to be honest here, I love this show! I went into it not expecting much at all. I didn’t watch the show much growing up, although I did end up seeing (and loving) the movies. I thought that I would just suffer my way through it… I was so wrong! The whole production is really funny, and it is so cleverly done. We enjoyed the whole show from beginning to end. The show is a musical with a great story line that starts with Wednesday being all grown up, and falling in love. Gomez … [Read more...]
