You can take the girl out of Milwaukee...




... but you can't take the Burly Blend from the girl.

Okay, no cooking is involved with this, but I had to give a shout out to my favorite coffee. It's "George's Burly Blend" from Alterra Roasters in Milwaukee. I haven't lived in that city for over 7 years, and I still will only drink this (which involves stocking up on trips back and begging for bags from MKE visitors). It's a full, heavy bodied roast that is strong, but really low in acidity. I love it, and were I not married, I'd marry it.

Also, we got these sweet cups from there on our last trip with an off center home for the mug on the saucer. I just love Alterra so much.
