Wanting to settle things once and for all with Guy from Meathenge, the BBCC sent Boyman off to Richmond. But to his mild surprise, Guy seemed to know what was coming. He had gathered together several influential food bloggers from around the Bay Area in his backyard, thus making it a far too public place. To further distract Boyman from his mission, Guy had pulled out all the stops and cast a stupification spell with the intoxicating smell of cooking meat. Cooking Meat. Everything wrapped in bacon. Some giant snake of a sauage. More bacon.

There was some other stuff on the tables but you know the power meat has.

Took the time to meat, or meet rather, a relation of Guy's responsible for Blastmilk who was also pouring absinthe. The rest of the time was spent busily preparing cups of drip coffee in the kitchen with son of Meathenge Elijah. He was doing so well, we might have to give him a BBCC name. Boyboy isn't taken...

The little helper

Oh so stuffed. Next time Meathenge...next time.

Looks like it came to bite me in the ass, I've got a Barista in the family now. Thank you Boyman for showing up, eating and getting busy with the drip.

It was really great to meet you guys. "C", my husband, refuses to forgive me for not having taken him to either the Linden spot or the truck.

Hmph. Took 6 months to convince him to join me at the FPFM!!

Thanks for all the comments guys!

biggles: Thanks again for the party and for having such a cool family.

Pints: Cheers!

Alistair: From canada? Yes the "contraption" was designed by us and then created in Richmond by a place called Seaport Stainless. Very nice work they do. Three ceramic Beehouse drippers that drain through spout in the tray.

Jeanne: Nice to meat you too!

Nad: Add me as a contact so I can read your secrets!

Fatemeh: Skip the Farmers Market and come to Linden. We'd love to see you and your husband.

Linden! You know, the kiosk? Just start reading somewhere around January of this year and you'll get it.

Any idea where a mere mortal like myself can purchase a Beehouse dripper?

No luck searching on the net

JT- We have them at the kiosk if you can stop by there. If not they are at Rainbow in SF, or you can call the roaster.

I think it was perfect that at the end of the day as dusk was nearing the deep aroma of freshly brewed coffee filled the warm friendly kitchen of the Biggles and Mama home. thank you for stting up contraption, teaching a small strip-ed one and giving us all something hot to hold onto.

Nice cool pictures... I like the step-by-step of how the coffee is made. I like how it forms its shape of a leaf in the cup... Delicately done!
