What wakes you up? What make you feel alive?
Those are two questions that’s easy for me to answer; coffee wakes me up and I feel alive when I’m on the Mt Bike trail.
Over the past several days I have written a few postings about the Christian life; today, I would like to write about a few of my other passions (coffee and Mt. Biking).
Let’s start with Coffee!
I have been a coffee drinker for well over 20 years now and a coffee importer/roaster for the past 10 years. My coffee hobby is really small time – I roast for a few friends, family members and myself. However, I do drink a lot of it on a daily basis (Strong, Black coffee). Currently I have five varieties of coffee that I offer and my favorite way to prepare coffee is the espresso shot (not expresso) or an ice latte. As soon an I finish this article I’m headed home to brew an espresso!
BTW, coffee doesn’t have to be bitter – if you want some brewing tips please send me a DM.
Now on to Mt. Biking!
Like my love for coffee, I have been Mt Biking for nearly 20 years. It is a hobby I truly enjoy – I like to go out on rides by myself or with others (doesn’t really matter). I like to be challenged but I also know my own limitations. I try to get at least 10 – 15 miles in every time I go out so that my time out also acts as a great workout. To me, there is nothing like ride up a long hill (conquering it) then getting off your bike to enjoy the view.
If you are in the area and would like to ride sometime, send me a DM and we’ll try to connect. There are some great places to ride in Northern Michigan.
