Schools and coffee

Our 10-week school vacation ends today, so the buses will be back on the street on Monday and parents can get a break, even if it isn't much.  Frankly, I think the kids in my condo are looking forward to it as much as their parents.  They just don't want to admit it!

I love Panama coffee.  The very best has sold for more  than $600 a pound (more than $1300 a kilo) and that is wholesale!   I buy my favorite brand for about $4.90 a pound ($11 a kilo) and love it more than coffee sold for a lot more money up north.

I brew it at home in a simple coffeemaker that works fine for me, but once in a while, I let someone else do the brewing and visit a coffee shop near where I live.  We have several Starbucks in town and more to come, but I like the little local shop near me.  It takes advantage of our great climate and has no walls.  It sits in the middle of a very busy downtown area, but somehow it always seems peaceful.  Best of all, it serves coffee and simple food 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  So, when the urge comes, they are ready for me!
