Video: Exploring Coffee Trails in Colombia with Anita & Caro Gehrig
@kanasasa: Is there a label for coffee that is actually sustainable? I usually buy with the fair trade label and expect it to be good. Apparently it isn't?

I'm surprised to see that in the picture, Gehrig is drinking from a mug with a sticker of Marzocco. I'd have expected that the brand would have proper printed mugs for their own video instead of slap a sticker on a mug just for that one shot.

The Collective and Roam videos were sponsored too.

@colincolin: Depends on what the cheetah had for breakfast. If I recall correctly, the effects of coffee has been discovered because the goats who happened to have eaten some of those beans got suspiciously active. Now if the cheetah manages to snatch one of those, you may be justified to have another cuppa to overtake one of those.

@Slabrung: Yeah, I like to build skills but I decided I wanted to develop skills for different occasions. I spend enough time in the kitchen, so that's sorted. Of course I got bikes. I got a slackline for those picknick sessions when I'm done sitting. I just got a few knives and an axe from Morakniv and a book called "Spon - A Guide to Spoon Carving and the New Wood Culture". When I'm getting restless during those long campfire sessions, I can now carve spoons from fresh wood. I love working with wood but working with fresh wood is new for me. But roasting coffee? Maybe someday, maybe never. Definitely not now.

Yeah, and during the time when you need a bigger workforce like during harvest etc, lower the prices for their stay in turn of a few hours labor a day. Cheaper than to hire people to work for you during those peak weeks. I think it could work.

I thought roasting was pretty difficult because you need to stop before it is finished. So you need to know when to stop exactly! I suppose it takes some experimentation but I really need to cut down on the things I want to get good at. Jack of all trades, master of none. So still no good coffee.

Review: X-Fusion Trace 36 HLR Fork
@jday283: No, Fox and RS have a strong position because of their OEM offerings. Especially SRAM can offer a huge component package to a frame manufacturer which does become interesting when they're building for a particular pricepoint (which most complete bikes are). And I suspect Fox has teamed up with Shimano so that's a huge package too. Technically Hayes could be this big too but they only have a gearbox (PeteSpeed) they bought from BeOne but they just sit on it. Suntour too, they have a gearbox but it is never going to make for a bike that will be sold at the pricepoint where people expect a Suntour fork. Not that they don't make high end fork. It is just that they also make cheaper forks (cheaper than Fox and RS do) so that may have given them the image. But really, it is not five or ten years ago anymore. Look around. We really see loads of elite teams riding with X-Fusion and Suntour forks. It is pretty diverse now compared to a few years ago. In fact, the teams with the IMHO most interesting component selection very often don't ride with Fox or RockShox. And the same goes with complete bikes in the higher end spectrum. Lots of Formula, DVO, Cane Creek suspension.

Wasn't there a feature (or Mercedes ad) here on Pinkbike about a guy named Vinay (not me) riding amidst tea plantations? It didn't go into the actual processing of tea but well, maybe someday.

If possible, buy smaller quantities ;). If this is not possible (for instance because you buy it on a trip and want to take it home) I think best would be to store it dry, airtight and dark. Not sure if it would work to store it cold (in the fridge). I suppose if you do, you really need to use very dry air. Never heard of anyone doing this and I'm afraid somewhere on PB some barista is going to choke on his or her coffee reading this and I owe them a new keyboard. Sorry for that!
