DoubleShot is DoubleAwesome

Man, that was a nerdy title. Please don't slap me - I'll do better next time.

Nerdy title! Next time you're in a tiled bathroom or other space in which you practice your echoes, shout those two words as loudly as you can, with as much staccato as you can muster. You'll be pleased with the results.

Right now! Stop that! Silly. I would say that if you could guess the movie from which that quote comes, you'd win something. Well, you won't - except for maybe a nice pat on the back. From yourself.

The only person who wins something today is Jeff Shaw of Bounded Rationality. He correctly guessed where the picture from this post was taken. While there were a few good guesses, the ceiling of The Philtower was spot-on.

Guess what I got him. A pound of Ethiopia Moka Stag coffee from DoubleShot Coffee Company. Yay! Cherish it, Jeff - that's some good bean.

Speaking of the DoubleShot, I love it. The guy who runs it, Brian Franklin - self-dubbed "roastmaster general" - is cool, too. He's got a lot going on right now. There's the DoubleShot blog, the podcast, running for children, and oh yeah, that little coffee company on Boston:

Let's go back to that running-for-children thing.

Brian is running in the Leadville 100 August 16 to raise money for Coffee Kids, which helps coffee farming families in need. You folks can pledge via Internet money per mile that he runs at Leadville, and after the race you can donate the total amount that you pledged to Coffee Kids.

"Hopefully it will raise some money for this great cause, which is really close to my heart," he said. "And make my run more than just a run in the Rocky Mountains."

P.S. - Brian runs a lot.

The website to make pledges: www.CoffeeIlluminati.com
The charity: www.CoffeeKids.org
The blog where he will keep his efforts updated: CoffeeIlluminati.blogspot.com

Cool beans! Sorry. Had to bookend my nerdy title with a lame ending.

Thanks Tasha, For the ETHIOPIA MOKA STAG! (Caps are not only for yelling, they are also used to denote coffee buzzes.)

I think everyone should go downtown and look inside the buildings. People would be fascinated at the interiors. We have a lot of treasure downtown.

I'm not entirely sure that I can think of a more effective way to get myself into a fight...

Well, you will be able to enjoy Double Shot coffee in Tahlequah soon enough. I will be opening Espresso911 and will carry DoubleShot coffee as my main coffee. Come by and visit.
