Gusta Java coffee

One of my favorite local businesses is Gusta Java (blogged about here). They roast the coffee here in town, and also have a drive-thru cafe. I finally decided to try making some of their coffee at home and I went with the Zimbabwe (thanks, Anna!)

I got it ground there and had them leave it pretty course for my French press. It takes a little more time, but I love the process of using the press! It's just so relaxing in the morning, and I don't have to worry about leaving it on. The drawback is that it cools down a lot quicker, so I'm looking for a cozy to put around it. If anyone has a good suggestion for one, feel free to let me know in the comments.

yummmmmmmm. I just finished the Zimbabwe coffee today and tomorrow I will make Tanzanian Peaberry! My buddy Joe picked it out for me, so if I don't like it, I blame him. If anyone wants to try some of Gusta's coffee, check out their website to order, or email me and we can work out a way for me to get some to you.

Girl, I am a coffee freak! How appropriate that I should come across this post as I'm having my morning coffee. I will check out their website for sure! It's always nice to find a new brand that you love.

As a side note, I've heard French press is the way to go. It sounds like you would agree with that! Where is the best place to buy one in your opinion?

Such a great way to start the day. I use a French press too, but I use mine for tea in the morning. It's so convenient that your favorite coffee shop has a drive through!

I really like your teapot! Where did you pick it up? I've been looking for a smaller one since the full sized pots are just too big to store in my tiny apartment.
