I'm looking forward to tomorrow!

I'll plan on bringing my decent. As anticipated, i have two flat max grinders on my countertop right now. One is the 2020 max SLM i've brought before, and the other is a max 2 SLM that I just got two weeks ago. I'll probably just bring the new one, but it's not that much more effort to bring both if anyone has interest in both being there.

Coffee wise, I can bring a honduran coffee that I roasted this week, but I wasn't thinking about the gathering being this weekend or I would have roasted something more interesting to bring along.

My wife is planning to make a dessert to bring, I think the plan is a cheesecake.

Bringing home-made bread and wine plus a bottle of bourbon that my FIL brought me from Kentucky last week. My wife is bringing her apple pie that everyone loves......except Gary.
