    I attended the November coffee event and tasting and Matthews knowledge and Jo’s hospitality made the experience wonderful. As a “never” drink coffee person but one that appreciates the efforts and the process it was cool and informative. I now realize why a french press (I think that is what is called) is my favorite and the i should never have a double or triple shot of anything coffee relates and stick to bourbon.
