So, obviously, I am back in the USA. I am still in the lengthy process of organizing all the photos and information from my trip. This wasn't a vacation; I was working dawn to dusk every single day except for that one Saturday that we took six hours off. There's a lot of data and stuff to sort through.

Some of my pictures are already available on my flickr page. And in the meantime, here are a couple of videos:

Me and Dante and Getachew in the bed of a pick-up truck. We were outrunning the tour bus all the way up this country road to a farm site... in this video we are waiting for the bus to catch up and then zooming off again.

In the next video you see the export mill floor of Ogsedey Coffee exporters (purveyors of the famous MAO Horse brand) in Dire Dawa, the hub for all Harar coffee. These women sort coffee all day. I tried to sit and join them for a while, but my clumsy hands were essentially making things harder for them, so I just recorded it instead...

Photos and stories to come soon...

Random friending request. I'm a coffee snob in my head but not in experience. I live in North Dakota so I'm limited. I need to broaden my coffee world and I'd love to read your posts. Would you mind?

Murky Coffee in DC made me this way. One cup, that's all it took.
