    Starbucks definitely launched the specialty coffee industry. I can tolerate their offerings if it’s my only option. I’d much rather patronize a local micro roaster coffee shop. I’d love to own my own shop. Roast my own beans. Have a smallish stage with back line for bands to come in and jam. There’s a place kinda like my image about an hour and fifteen minutes North of my town. They don’t roast their own coffee, but they have a nice little stage with back line and lights. It would be a cool little spot if their coffee was better. I hope they’re surviving Covid.

    I would order beans from you, good sir, should you open yer own place.

    The Jamison infused beans were not good.

    That’s too bad. What happened? It sounds like it oughta be a good combination of flavors.

    I thought so, too. Not sure if I let them infuse too long or roasted them wrong.

    Just spitballin’ ideas here:  I did a little experiment for my blog where I soaked habanero peppers in a couple of different types of alcohol to see if they’d break down the heat without sacrificing flavor (abstract:  Tequila worked the best, vodka was second best).  This happens because the alcohol extracts the hot capscaicin oils from the pepper…so, the milder the pepper became, the hotter the alcohol became.

    All of the flavors in coffee come from oils.

    Is it possible that that booze does the same thing to coffee beans as it does to hot peppers and just sucks the oil right out of ’em?

    This is an excellent question and one that merits cogitation.

    Hum, something to think about.

    Actually, that’s not totally true. Some of the flavors are derived from internal sugars in the beans as they are caramelized by the heat.

    Another statement worthy of cogitation.

    If you haven’t already, try rum. I’ve had the best results with Cockspur (it used to be a bro deal here when the US distributor was local) but any decent amber rum works well with Habs. Note that my game is to use the hot booze for cooking jerk sauces, not eating the leftover peppers. Tequila works well too, but rum is the thing for jerk.
