My Coffee Experience
I have been a lifelong coffee drinker, and for me, that is a long time. I learned to love the stuff by sitting around the kitchen table with Mom and Dad while growing up. I didn’t know much about what I was drinking, but I knew the morning coffee was closely connected to fellowship. It was a great way to start the day. But eventually, I married and moved away from home. There were many occasions when I drank my coffee alone. Something was missing, the fellowship. The coffee just became a morning drink, sometimes stimulating, sometimes not.
Then one morning that all changed. That morning, as the hot liquid hit my tongue, my taste buds exploded with excitement. It wasn’t good coffee, it was great coffee. I don’t mean to leave the impression that what I was drinking before was sludge from a refining plant. It was good. But what I experienced that morning was like being James Dean, riding the open road on my Triumph TR5 with no helmet, or flying in the open cockpit of a Boeing Stearman biplane as I did loops and spins and prayed that my safety belt did not give way and allow me to fall to my death. It was both exciting and frightful. Everything changed. Since then, I have been on a mission to learn all I can about coffee…to make sure my every morning cup was like firmly gripping the handlebars of that Triumph or pulling the safety strap snuggly to my waist in the Boeing Stearman as I place that cup of coffee to my lips to start another day.
My quest has led me here. It gave me the desire to share some of my discoveries with others…and that, that is The Enjoyable Grind.” In my research, I found the taste of the coffee is the result of many things, starting with the farmer. It also includes the type of bean, the roasting, the grinding, the storage and the brewing. It is my intent to provide not only coffee, but expert advice on the best ways to prepare it.
Realizing that not everyone has the same taste in coffee, I decided to create a collection of coffees and provide them for any and all who would like the best. The Enjoyable Grind is a result of that effort. It is an Internet Store selling premium, gourmet, highest quality coffee. The Enjoyable Grind Coffee comes from the world’s finest beans, grown by local and small coffee growers from the world’s coffee belt. We endeavor to provide only Fair Trade and Organic products. Fair Trade simply means that the small farmers get a fair price for their honest hard work through the coffee beans they grow.
The Enjoyable Grind provides subscription service, allowing our customers the ability to have their coffee automatically delivered on a regular basis, eliminating the danger of running out of their favorite blend. We believe the daily grind should start with The Enjoyable Grind, because we provide a coffee for every taste. After all, the taste is in the coffee, not in the name.
