Guji Alaka

My favorite coffee supplier is out of green Harrar coffee beans, so I've been trying some others. I roasted a batch of Guji Alaka, from the Guji Zone of Ethiopia. Goodness me, what a big berry taste! So much berries. And just $5.15/pound.

The restaurant supply store! The Bags went to a restaurant supply store last weekend and I bought wonderful things.

One is a Vollrath Cermiguard II pan. I love this pan. It has a non-stick coating that's perfect for omelettes but tough enough to use metal utensils. But I won't because I love it so much. It has a silicone grip on the handle that's oven safe up to 450°. I won't ever put my omelettes in the oven, but if I needed to, it's good to know I can.

I also got a classic diner table top glass sugar dispenser. For the last 15 years or so I've been using an old plastic Imperial sugar bottle with a flip top pour spout. They sell them full of sugar, but I refilled it from a sugar bag until the plastic hinge would break, then buy another plastic bottle. The glass dispenser is so much better.

When we got home I said I wanted to go inside and kiss my pan. Memegirl asked if they made me pansexual. I was so proud. She later revealed she had been waiting for the right time to deploy that pun, like a pro, ever since we left the restaurant supply store. I'm such a proud poppa.

Don't you need to have some sort of food-based business to get access to that place?

That is a proud moment. It reminds me of a memory from several years ago. Mrs Scotch, the younger Scotch daughter, and I were having dinner. The wife was talking about arranging her iTunes music for instructing water aerobics. She asked about searching for music by genre - but she pronounced it JEN-drah. As she said it, I was taking a sip of my beer, and - like a ventriloquist act - the kid piped-up and corrected her: "It's ZHON-ruh". My wife said "that's amazing; you think it and it comes out of her mouth!". That's my kid.

No. There are a few in town that only sell to people with a food license, but most are open to the public.

It's full of wonderful things. Industrial blenders. Multi-bay deep fat fryers.

So if she takes after you, then she's Scotch-bright?

His daughter! Sunday was Memegirl's 19th birthday. We had donuts that spelled out happy birthday to her from the boojiest donut shop I've ever been to, which is saying a lot. I gave her a vinyl copy of "Turning Teeth" by Jesus And The Brides of Dracula, which was actually from the movie "Under the Silver Lake".

She is so cool, and so much fun to hang out with. I miss being able to pick her up and carry her around, but it's also fun to see her becoming an adult.
