So we are coming to the Christmas Eve of the coffee get together and I would like to start getting an idea on head count so if anyone is still deciding, please let me know as soon as you can.
A little about the food and such: I will have food as well as sticky snacks. I'll provide regular (is it called conventional foods?
), vegetarian and vegan options so that there's something for everyone. This is an organic household so everything will be organic. I will have teas and sparking mineral water on tap with cool syrups to flavor if you like - violet, elderflower, and whatever else this aromatherapist conjures up. I will have ceremonial matcha available and gunpowder green tea. For dairy, there will be grass fed organic and non dairy - almond and ripple. I'll also have Piknik which is a new alternative I've been experimenting with (it has MCT and ghee plus some whey). For sweeteners, we don't do stevia, aspartame or any other unnatural sweetener so if that is something you prefer, then by all means bring some for your personal use. I will have some coveted super dark grade Canadian maple that made it here when my family came to visit a few weeks ago. This is the stuff the U.S. Maple industry doesn't want on shelves - very flavorful and mineralized and so beyond what grade A maple is. I will also have some coffee blossom honey (a product I will have on my website) and organic sugar. Water source is remineralized distilled water.
I have lots of green beans and I'll roast up our Indian Monsoon (which will be a Soulside Coffee fixture) plus some Soulside Sumatra. Would anyone like decaf options? Please let me know, and I'll pick some up in Oakland.
Any other requests?
Is anyone bringing their roaster (have roaster, will travel)?
