New Coffee Subscription

During this COVID-19 shelter in place, I’ve noticed that the coffee beans from my AngelsCup subscription tend to be finished within 2 weeks after I open them.  Since it’s a currently a monthly subscription, do you see how this can be a “brewing” problem?  Ba-dum-tshh.  Anyways, I’ve upped the frequency now to twice a month.  I also have a referral code “CoffeeHunter12050” if you also want to partake in AngelsCup.  Apparently you can get 25% on their first delivery.

However, it’s also been 3 years since I last researched about coffee subscription services.  Thanks to Google and Facebook algorithms, I was introduced to another subscription service called Trade Coffee.  And I signed up on a monthly basis. So we’ll see how this subscription works out.

Netflix Explains COVID-19

Netflix has a new documentary on what is COVID-19 disease.  It’s a nice synopsis of everything the scientists currently know about the disease COVID-19 as well as the SARS-COV-2 virus that causes this disease.  And… there’s still a lot the scientists do not know.  If you still don’t think this pandemic is not “really that bad” and you want to “open up for business,”  this should be a mandatory watch for all of you.  I hope you change your mind after this.

However if you insist on still wanting to get out and open for business, please do everyone a favor and decline ANY AND ALL medical attention.  If you openly defy sound scientific advice, then naturally you should also not seek these scientific based medical attention that could save your life.  After all, the limited resources should be going to those essential workers (healthcare, grocery, restaurant workers) who were taking all the necessary precautions and were infected by the dummies who believed their freedoms were being “trampled on.”

There is no freedom from death.  There is no freedom when dead.

Asian Enough Podcast

To have LA Times support a podcast called Asian Enough where celebrity Asian Americans are interviewed about their unique experience and background while growing up Asian American is very remarkable.  It’s very refreshing to hear how these Asian celebrities describe their childhood difficulties of not being American enough in US while simultaneously not being Asian enough from their country of cultural origin.  Doesn’t that sound familiar?


Thread Coffee Roasters

April’s Angels Cup comes from Thread Coffee Roasters.  I’m really excited to try these beans because they come from Mexico!  Being able to try beans from new coffee belt region else is always exciting!


Opening the bag, a nutty sweet aroma mingles with this really strong earthy smell.  It’s somewhat different from how the Ethiopian beans smell.  When I go make my latte, I taste sweet, syrupy and citrus notes that lingers on my tongue.  After each sip, I get this nice chocolate after taste in the back of the tongue.  These beans are really delicious.
