Sipping an Ethiopian coffee - the very last of my Ethiopian coffee.

Time to place an order for some more coffee.

Excellent!

One of the two coffee orders that I placed yesterday has just arrived, delivered to my door.

My coffee from El Salvador came to an end this morning, but fortunately, a fresh delivery of coffee had arrived yesterday, comprising two totally new coffees, one from Rwanda, and the other - recomended - from Ecuador.

I'm looking forward to trying them.

Sipping a cup (well, mug, my Le Creuset mug) of coffee from Ecuador, an Ethiopian varietal, but planted in Ecudaor, with organic hot milk.

I ordered coffee from two different roasters on Thursday; one - after a few emails, for a coffee I had ordered (Colombian) was sold out, and they wished to exchange it for another, the Ecuadorian, which they recommended, which was fine - was delivered, by the chap himself with whom I had exchanged emails (granted, it is a local company and I wished to give them some business in these challenging times) - was delivered to my door on Friday afternoon.

Which is just as well.

For, not only had I finished my previous coffee supply by Saturday, the other coffee order, also ordered on Thursday, - and often, (though not always),their deliveries take a day or so - was supposed to be "in the network" of delivery company DPD by Friday, according to their tracking; having received a note to that effect, I had assumed a Saturday delivery. Nope.

Instead, I received an email at midnight, (well, five minutes past), last night, informing me that delivery is now pushed out to February 22.

Just as well I gave some business to a local company as, otherwise, I would have run the risk of being out of coffee.

Enjoyed a coffee from El Salvador, with organic hot milk and generously buttered porter cake (the porter cake was homemade - and a gift from my cousin, whom I met for a suitably socially distanced coffee on Sunday).

Coffee (from El Salvador, served with organic hot milk) and porter cake (from my cousin, served with generous quantities of butter) both very welcome and very tasty.

Coffee from El Salvador, organic milk (hot), toasted French bread, freshly squeezed orange juice (a blend of a blood orange and an ordinary orange); what is there not to like?

Prepared a blend of coffee from Rwanda, to which I added Ethiopian coffee.

I'm getting close to putting an order in for some Central American coffees myself, from a place in Ithaca. I hesitate to make those orders over the deep winter because I can't always get out to my post box then! Of course we could still have a nor'easter at this point in the late season for snowfall but the week ahead looks relatively balmy so I'm going for it...
