Favors and Flavors

Favors and Flavors

There were two Xmas gifts that keep coming back, as an echo — an “RTIC” tumbler, essentially an insulated mug, and Sister’s Coffee.


Trying to suggest the nuance and flavor of the current batch Sister roasted, I stumbled across an old weblog entry, which was supposed to be about website hosting, but the flavored introduction, both tickled and reminded me about the coffee.

There was a certain floral essence, not present in her earlier batch. Hint of cherries, maybe? Not cherries themselves, but the suggestion of sugary sweetness — but not really sweet.

A more nuanced flavor.

Favors and Flavors


I have avoided — in earnest — insulated coffee cups, branded tumblers, and just about every other form of reusable, resealable coffee mug. For some reason, perhaps the hype, perhaps the function, perhaps the cold winter nights, I started to use that metal mug — and I’ve enjoyed it immensely. Might be the single pour-over coffee, using Sister’s beans, maybe I can get more out of their flavor that way.

Might be the lonely trek to Austin, with fewer stops.

Can tell more about the complex flavors in the coffee.
