KAHHN!!...wait, no...COOONNN!!!!


I must first apologize for not posting in quite some time. The birth of my baby girl took priority for a while. It also took my sleep and higher brain functions as well. I’m back and this blog is going to change slightly. So stay tuned.

So, what got me back into the saddle? Coffee Con LA. I am super stoked for this. Yes, William Shatner yelling and chasing down Kahn excited.


I have never been to a coffee event. My Phoenix, Az market doesn’t really have anything like this. Specialty coffee is still kind of a novelty here. It’s frustrating. I want to learn about coffee. I want to talk to people who really know their stuff. I want to learn techniques that I can only learn from people who have been brewing for years. I want to be a padawan learner to a coffee Jedi.

I plan on blowing up twitter with pics and any other random thought I have while at Coffee Con. So I hope you follow (@MuertosCoffee). I have a nice 6 hour drive tonight that will surely be fueled by coffee. If anyone knows of a great place along the I-10, let me know. We have a hotel nearby so we are going to get there early. I’m going to work the booths and classes until my head explodes, then jump in the car and drive 6 hours home. Yeah, a 1 night turn around trip, jacked up on caffeine. I’m going to be a train wreck on Sunday.


I have high hopes for this weekend and hopefully it will feed some awesome new posts.

Sitting here trying to think of something to write about, I realize I am kind of in limbo. I haven't had a lot of new coffee experiences because of the craziness of the holidays and I don't have any grand plans for the future....wait a second...that's terrible. How can a business not have plans for the future? I need some goals.

Pour Over Coffee Station

I posted on Twitter that I was going to try my hand at roasting again over the long weekend but focused on building my pour over station instead. It wasn't hard, but did end up costing me a little more than anticipated. Here is what it took to make it:

My Official Hashtag

In preparation for my first deliveries, I thought it would be good to release my official Hashtag. That way, when everyone raves about how awesome my coffee is and feels that insatiable need to share its awesomeness with the world, they will have that road paved for them. (That is me envisioning success...and crossing my fingers...and praying daily...but also envisioning.)

#LifeFueledByMuertos

That's it folks. So when you have your first cup of coffee and want to share it with the world, please include this with all of your posts. The reason behind this tag line is not really a fun airy topic, but it is a huge driver for me.

I came up with this because...
