Respect the Barista

This year, on the dates of Sept 26th through October 4th, I celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles. It was established by God to be observed as a "statute forever in your generations" (His words, not mine -- Leviticus 23:41). For those who are unaware, essentially, the Feast of Tabernacles is the last set of holy days of the year in the Bible. This particular feast looks forward to the establishment of God's Kingdom on Earth -- really, this is the fulfillment of God's whole plan, the meaning of life. If you're interested in learning more, check out this fantastic literature about God's Holy Days, and this one about the Fall Holy Days.

All this is to give you a little context. One of everyone's favorite scriptures involving the Feast of Tabernacles is Deuteronomy 14:26, which says:

"And you shall spend that money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen or sheep, for wine or similar drink, for whatever your heart desires; you shall eat there before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household."

Of course, that doesn't mean that I should go to Vegas and spend it all on sin. But it does say that I can spend the money I save all year for whatever my heart desires.

Well, this year, my heart desired a good caffeine buzz. We got the Rancilio Miss Silvia espresso machine and the Rancilio Rocky espresso grinder through Jellyfish. So far, so good. With this set up and some killer local coffee beans, my 'spro rivals the best coffee shops in town. Check it out!

That's right. 25 second shots. Mmmmmmmm, good!
