This morning I brewed another few cups of Supercrown's Rwanda Gitesi; but first, let me tell you how Reddy to Brew's first decaf specialty coffee went.

Usually, if I drink coffee past 3pm, sleeping will not be an option.

My brewing temperature has been more like 85 Celsius instead of the 79 Zahradhnik
