My name is Sam and I will be your narrator and guide for a little coffee education and cycling discussion here on the Mars Cafe site. I work in a local kitchen and do a little food blog and a cycling blog, but sometimes I really want to branch out and do something different so last week I threw a tweet out on um…Twitter asking if anyone would like me to guest post on their blogs and LJ heeded the call. We met for lunch along with the Matt S and hammered out this idea:
You see, I am by trade a chef/cook type worker and I have accumulated a pretty large knowledge base in the food-ular and wine-ular areas, but my coffee knowledge is right up there with many line cooks. In the kitchen, coffee is what gets the day started and keeps you firing on at least most cylinders as the work piles up and orders roll in. In this arena just about any coffee will do, and I have even seen some of my more out of control co-homies mix their coffee with ENERGY DRINKS in the SAME CUP. And somehow they are still alive…
So it was decided that I will be learning about the finer points and intricacies of Coffee and Coffee Culture then conveying my experience to you, the tens of readers out there. Oh, and the biking… the biking…
Mars has some rather rabid cyclists/cycling fans in their employ and coffee customer crowd. Mars has also hosted Cranksgiving, an “alleycat” race to fight hunger, for three years and recently Jameson um…I mean Graham (so sorry guys, I always seem to mix you up, even in the enchanted land of the Inderwebs) of Mars Cafe organized another benefit Caffeine Crawl. These guys have some fun and interesting bike stuff coming up and I look forward to bringing you said cycling news.
I might even try to make it funny or entertaining. hmmm…..
