Its lunch hour, I am drinking this steaming hot black coffee listening to UB 40’s Red red wine in this chilly rainy weather …
Moving on swiftly, I cannot say I am an expert in coffee or anything of the sort but I will always voice my thoughts and opinions.
Of late I have been seeing so many people highlighting the issue of decreasing coffee production in Kenya. task forces have been formed and of the there after resolutions I know not but,
here is the issue, Continue reading “Here’s my take”
Catching up with every body else on world coffee news,I am late on this but hey ,Kenya will have two representatives in the Specialty Coffee Association board.

It was yet another time for Nyeri International Coffee Expo (2018) ,third edition that went down on the 9th and 10th of November 2018. The venue was Whispers ground at the heart of Nyeri town. Unlike last year it attracted more people and I imagine it is due to the proximity of the venue to the town center.
I inquired from the organizer Mr. Laban Dereva on why they decided to pick a name of one county ‘Nyeri’ to brand the event and he Continue reading “Nyeri international coffee Expo 2018”
Evening seems to set in early today. The sun rays form a magnificent pattern in the fading sun sky.
I Might as well get my self a cappuccino (do not tie me to that ,there is room for rephrasing) WE the people are not affected by late night caffeine.
So a cappuccino it is .
It tastes so good, so creamy-sh ,so yummy-ish,so black-ish . Temptation for a second one is looming, but no, I wouldn’t want to start singing along to UB 40’s ‘sins of the fathers’ …at a very late hour while everybody else is in la la la land having sweet dreams or nightmares for the terrorists and thugs and all bad people in general.
(the above italic part was drafted before I had a cappuccino in the evening, mind you I did.Need I tell you that I was the chair person of night runners for the night? I never slept.#lessons)
Let us cross over for a second and analyse our human nature…
Get a coffee please and lets talk about us humans and our human nature. Mine no milk, just black, its more reflective…(just a normal medium roasted-sticking to the rivers and lakes I’m used to)
…We human beings create problems and then afterwards when things begin going haywire we start looking for ways to solve the same same problems … Continue reading “Of Coffee in the sunset & human nature”
I spent a bit of time watching a repeat of the Amsterdam marathon 2018 edition in which one Lawrence Cherono retained his last years win for the men marathon with three Ethiopians sweeping the first three spots of the women marathon.As usual it was an ‘East African affair’.
But that was not the interesting part ,no, the interesting part was that in the same marathon ,the Netherlands had its own national marathon. It took me a while contemplating on that. Continue reading “Marathons and coffee”
