In our continued quest to over analyze and over share everything we do, a brief story on how the lessons from the Dread Pirate Roberts of the Princess Bride are extendable to coffee roasting. Enjoy. Thanks again to Thumbcat Media (Hannah and Edward). This honestly is my personal favorite from their video series thus far. No real how-to's in this, just story telling.
There must always be a raison d'etre or prime mover, which can be readily lost in the tango/speed of commerce. Thanks to Thumbcat Media for helping us extend a moment and record a few thoughts on the Tao of Sump. (As always Sump is a quest, so all statements recorded today truly don't exist until they're contradicted out loud at a future date -so look for decaf on the menu soon.)
Thanks to those who came out for the screening and a huge thanks to Jane and Mandy for putting together such a sweet docu-short!
They just released Volumes 1 & 2 last night on youtube - link below is to Scott's/Sump's but check out Vol 1: The Pitmaster (featuring Skip Steele) on their channel.
