About CBJ

French Press at Black HoleI am a coffee bean junkie. As soon as the last drop of my current cup hits my taste buds I am already pondering where my next cup will come from.  At night as I lay down to go to sleep my last thoughts are plans for my next cup in the morning. Without a doubt I am hooked. I even appreciate the bad cups of coffee that I have to endure sometimes because they make me enjoy the good cups of coffee even more.

Since I love coffee so much it is a good thing that I live in Houston. Recently there have been many new coffee shops and cafes opening around town that are understand coffee. They don’t just get some beans and brew them. They craft them. A good cup of coffee is an art and not just a set of instructions followed. Following instructions will get you a good cup, but crafting a cup will get you amazing results. I am very happy that Houston’s “coffee scene” is exploding right now and I am excited to see what the future has for coffee and our city.

This blog is my look into Houston’s coffee shops, crafters, roasters, and drinkers. I hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy producing it!
