(webstagram) Mexico’s coffee scene was inspiring on many levels. Shops like @almanegracafe, @avellanedakf, @miscelaneasayulita, and @triviacafesayulita put out both delicious staple coffee drinks but also creative and exotic cold coffee concoctions. The latter inspired us to explore how we might create a menu that highlights the subtle complexities in specialty coffee while serving a beverage that’s enjoyable even when the temperatures are sweltering. Here’s our first go at that, recipe graciously provided by @caffeinemag: Blackberry Juniper Coffee Bramble
(webstagram) Keeping September rolling and we have a rare but cherished formal Kirkcaldy-Lash occasion celebrating the matrimony of Maddie and Thomas. Then a beautiful golden evening ride in Sutro with Christine followed by freezing garbage waves photographed by Chad. Some sailing, an almost swan, MY WIFE THE MODEL (photo by Tyler), and MY BROTHER THE HIKER, and Chad.
(webstagram) The month of September came and went and so much happened yet I somehow didn’t stop to share anything on the internet which, is not necessarily bad. Also not necessarily good! Life is complex and meaningless at the same time so if you feel joy and satisfaction in what you’re doing I say don’t stop. But....... I’m also a sap and really enjoy scrolling back in time and remembering moments of happiness. Like one time on a cross country flight I just listened to music and scrolled through 3 years of photos on my phone. I totally get why previous generations made photo albums. I guess we did too actually, just digitally but that’s even been replaced with a 10-photo-limit “post” so here’s some of September’s happiness, Future Jesse, enjoy. Also, floss. And give Christine a kiss.
Desolation wilderness’s snow melt ponds are wonderfully and freezing, the stigmata is the perfect bicycles and I rode it on the flume trail in Tahoe and then in Tamarancho. A sunset in the Sunset, and me trying to look cool minutes before putting my face into a rock. Then Christine putting her face into the floor. Life’s hard sometimes??? A trail friend and some sky friends while location scouting for Mandy and Tyler’s wedding and then a snap from @derekyarra while shooting their wedding!
