Coffee doesn't taste very good to me lately. I'm thinking of giving it up for awhile but my timing couldn't be worse because at present, we have enough coffee beans to open a small coffee shop - or to last us for at least three or four months.
I have always been perverse.
We have a pound of coffee beans from a caffe in North Beach, which I love for the ambiance, old men in black turtlenecks speaking Italian, Tony Bennett on the sound system, cannoli in the glass cases. We also bought a pound of their Sicilian espresso beans right before six pounds of various coffee beans arrived from Gevalia, which sent us three shipments in the same week. I called them to explain that it was rather a lot of caffeine for two people to dispose of and to cancel all future shipments.
Two days later, a fourth shipment arrived, another two pounds of coffee beans. I called them again.
I was probably too jittery to make any sense, though.
Our freezer is getting pretty crowded.
