Still Buzzing……a day powered by COFFEE!

Grand Cru Wine Bar and Shop, first location opening in Bellevue, WA in April 2009, we research coffee. Allan and I meet principals at Caffe Vita in Seattle to taste various coffee blends for wine bar French press coffee program. The building smells of coffee even though the German roasting apparatus is being cleaned today.
Coffee lovers, except Steve who is tasting today, first coffee in a year or so: to be part of the selection progress.
We taste -4- different blends made in French presses and a very nice decaf-that tastes like coffee, not like a usual decaf! It is now early evening and it was to much of a good thing for me........we narrowed it down.
