Jared’s Last Goodbye


Well, on Thursday the 22nd of October, I took the time to ask Jared a few poignant questions as he went about his day. It is hard the believe that almost a whole year has passed since he first started as a roaster at Intelligentsia and over 2 years since his days as a bar back at the Silver Lake cafe.

I also got the fellas at the roast works to say their last goodbyes, so we could send him of in style. Jared, we at Intelligentsia LA will miss ya and we all hope you kick arse up in Portland as the regions first Intelligentsia Sales rep.

Colin, I accidentally deleted the footage that we agreed on using, I did not want to cut you out completely so I just added the first take (you were lucky you got two, no one else did) that I got of you, hope that is ok.

Enjoy and goodluck Mr JL

In other news, I finally bought Final Cut Express last weekend, I could not wait to get home and start that bad boy up, until I saw the 1125 page instruction booklet that goes with it… eeep!


Not much to say?


I have been really quiet of late, it’s not because I don’t have anything to talk about! Everyday at work there is something going on that is worthy of a post.

I have been thinking of late that I might change things up a bit, I want to start blogging about things other then coffee as well. What would that be you ask? Well, I want to start to blog about LA and all it’s hidden gems, like restaurants and taco trucks. Beer, my discovery of the American IPA among other American craft ales. More lately, cigars, yup there is nothing better of late, then kicking back, lighting up a cigar, sipping an IPA and collecting ones thoughts, while the memory of the chaotic week just past, fades.

Weekends is where it is at. A weekend blog, huh, maybe I just hit on something.
