La Zona Cafetera, here I come!

I feel a little bit silly writing about coffee regions because, honestly, I don’t really care as long as it’s French roast.

Wikipedia: 240 °C (464 °F) French Roast Dark brown, shiny with oil, burnt undertones, acidity diminished. At the end of second crack. Roast character is dominant, none of the inherent aroma or flavors of the coffee remain.

dailymail: A recent study by Oxford University found the colour of the mug that you drink your coffee from can have an effect on the flavour. The researchers discovered that when coffee was drunk from a white mug, the intensity of the flavour increased, in comparison to drinking the same coffee from a transparent mug. // It is thought that the white mug may have influenced the perceived brownness of the coffee and this, in turn, may have influenced the perceived intensity.

nytimes: When it gets hot in Macondo, it gets so hot that men and beasts go mad and birds attack houses. A long spell of rain is remember to have lasted, not weeks, but four years, eleven months and two days. When a plague hits the region, it is no ordinary killer but an “insomnia plague,” which gradually causes people to forget everything including the names and uses of the most commonplace objects. In order to combat the memory loss, the villagers label chairs and clocks and even hang a sign on the cow: “This is the cow. She must be milked every morning so that she will produce milk, and the milk must be boiled in order to be mixed with coffee to make coffee and milk.”
