Counter Culture Coffee


This Saturday I was lucky enough to attend Counter Culture’s Brewing Basics course at their Somerville training center outside of Union Square. After a crash course in the art of proper extraction and strength, I find myself unable to resist making cup after cup of (much better tasting) coffee. If you’re a somewhat discerning coffee drinker looking to troubleshoot your cup at home, this class is well worth your while.


Heat wave.

ToastSince I can’t do much baking in this heat, I’m letting other people do it for me. I bought a loaf of pain de mie from Clear Flour and dipped into some blackberry preserves I had a chance to make last week.
