How to Make Coffee

Other than how to properly store whole bean coffee, what is the best way to make coffee at home is perhaps the most common question we hear week in and week out. The short answer is, however you like to make coffee at home. Seriously, there are about a dozen perfectly legitimate extraction methods (fancy way of saying “making coffee”) you can use in the comfort of your own home. The main considerations would be how much time, effort, and money are you willing to put into the process? I love pour overs however it is also nice once in a while to use a french press. Home automatic drip coffee machines or K-Cup machines are perhaps my least favorite. In case you were looking for an expert opinion on which home coffee brewer is the best, here is an article from the Specialty Coffee Association for your consideration:

Never has the phrase “you gotta do you” been more important than when it comes to coffee so even if everyone you know disagrees with your methods, if the coffee ends up the way you like it then by all means continue….

The Miracle of Cold Brew

If you are one of the legion of followers flocking to the counter of the local coffee shop for cold brew coffee then you already know the deadly combination of sweet and strong that comes from brewing coffee without heat. Cold brew also has approximately 60% less acid as compared to regular brewed coffee for those with a delicate stomach or those seeking to lower their overall body PH levels. For more information check out this great article on the subject from Forbes magazine in 2018:

Coffee & Jesus

Somehow between planting a new church and working to grow our coffee business I may have lost track of my original vision in coming to Galveston.  We came here to make coffee and talk about Jesus.  As we move into 2019 be on the lookout for some upcoming events dedicated to this simple premise.  Thanks to those who have and are supporting us in this exciting ministry opportunity and we look forward to making some more specific announcements in the first quarter of 2019…..stay tuned!

Question: What if we focused on helping others see Jesus for who He really is and made room for the Holy Spirit to do the rest?
