Thoughts while getting a work out: Irony. Of course we westerners need to burn calories by creating excercise. But looking out the window while on the stationary bike watching the hundreds of thin folks stream by on foot brought home the massive irony. We have a huge share of calories, to our detriment.

We just finished a week of Q training. We taught 23 courses, gave alot of exams. Cuppings, triangulation, sensory skills, aromatics, on and on. Lots of work, emotion and success. The Uganda coffee industry is just at the door of specialty and Q grade coffees. By training folks to determine quality the industry will now capture those excellent coffees and put them in the specialty world. Bigger bucks for better quality.

I look forward to seeing those coffees in the market.
