DoubleShot Coffee + Cycling

DOUBLESHOT FOLK
Chad Cagle has been one of Tulsa's preeminent cyclists for several years now. And since Tulsa Tough is this weekend, I thought it would be a good opportunity to introduce you to Chad, a long-time customer of the DoubleShot. Listen to his interview here: www.doubleshotcoffee.com/blogs/experience/chad-cagle
Tulsa Tough is a 3-day cycling event with races on Friday in the Blue Dome district, Saturday in the Brady Arts district, and Sunday on Riverside Drive. These are criterium races, where cyclists pedal around a few city blocks lap after lap, like FormulaOne racing. There are races of all levels from recreational amateurs to the fastest pro racers in the country. If you haven't been, you should definitely check it out. It's a lot of fun to watch. If you like riding but not racing, Tulsa Tough also offers group rides Saturday and Sunday morning, which are also a good time.
A lot of our local cyclists will be out riding and racing. Cagle and his team will be racing in the Masters races this year, which is a field packed with very fast, experienced riders.
Come by the DoubleShot Friday, Saturday and Sunday for coffee before your ride. Lots of the pros from around the world have been hanging out at the DoubleShot, and it's a cool environment to be in. We'll have plenty of bicycle parking, and will be live-streaming the races Saturday and Sunday mornings. 
New DoubleShot cycling kits are here. We did pre-orders for these, but I got just a few extras in case you changed your mind after they arrived. There is a limited stock, so if you want one and don't find your size, let me know and I'll see about a re-order. These kits are made out of a very special material that has a thread shaped like an airplane wing, so that when you ride into the wind, it actually pulls you forward, making you far faster than your peers. (Actually, I made that up, but you will be way cooler than all those freaks riding around with other coffee companies splashed across their backsides.) This kit looks particularly good with the new trucker hat too. You don't have to be fast to have good taste.

DoubleShot Folk: Kyle Bell

DoubleShot Folk: Kyle Bell

We work really hard to make great coffee, but it's the customers who really make the DoubleShot a cool place. The folks who hang out here every day are smart and creative and unique. It's a place where business deals are struck, movies are produced, books are written, and friends are made. I have begun a project to feature some of the people you see at the DoubleShot every day. Who are they? What do they do? Why do they choose to make the DoubleShot their hang-out?
Meet Kyle Bell. Go to the DoubleShot website to hear a very short interview I did with Kyle, talking about what he does and why he likes the DoubleShot: www.doubleshotcoffee.com/blogs/experience
You can see Kyle's documentary work on his vimeo page.

I also sat down with Kyle last Fall for an episode of my podcast, AA Cafe #103. Listen here: aacafe.org/episode-103-kyle-bell

DoubleShot - Rookery progress

DoubleShot - Rookery progress
View this email in your browser
Two weeks ago, our Amish friend Johnny came down from Indiana to help us start putting the barn structure back together for the Rookery. Johnny took the barn down and knows just how these old barns are constructed. Watch the video to see where construction is now and what's happening next. Good times at the Rookery.
Want more? Mark Brown and I sat down inside the roastery section of the Rookery that is currently erected to record the latest episode of my podcast, AA Cafe. Discussions are about the new location, Philbrook Museum's latest wine experience, and the Specialty Coffee Association conference. I also sat down with the founder of Just Hope, a nonprofit doing community development in Nicaragua. Leslie Penrose and I discussed the history and current state of affairs in Nicaragua. Listen to AA Cafe Episode #111 at aacafe.org.

DoubleShot Moms

DoubleShot Moms
View this email in your browser
It's Mother's Day this weekend, and we have just the thing to make your mom as happy as mine. Our featured coffee this week is Maduro Lot 21. This coffee is in very short supply and will be sold out within the next couple weeks. A really great cup, it's available on pourover and single origin espresso until Tuesday. Our kitchen came up with a new variety of English Muffin to go with the Maduro:  Cherry Chocolate. And if you ask me, it's pretty tasty. Come by the DoubleShot and pick up a 4-pack of this new English Muffin and a 12-ounce bag of our Maduro Lot 21. For mom. (Might want to get some for yourself, so you aren't tempted to steal some of mom's before you give it to her.)

Happy Mother's Day!

Brian

Easter with Panama Hartmann X

Easter with Panama Hartmann X
View this email in your browser
022618 935p
Sunday morning we cupped coffees around 9a. I walked from Ojo de Agua to Palo Verde, and stopped a lot to look and listen. I saw many birds and an iridescent blue butterfly. 
Sitting on this porch at night is nice. The cabin is very far out in the woods and it has no electricity. There is a spring near by, and a long time ago the Hartmanns built a little pool with a water wheel to generate electricity. The wheel is long gone but the sound of the spring water flowing over the edge of its reservoir is ever-present. Stars are numerous but the half-moon is so bright that the open spaces are dimly illuminated. Frogs chirp in the boggy spring, while the higher-pitched chorus from crickets rings all around.
That was a snippet of text from my journal during my most recent trip to Panama, visiting Finca Hartmann. I go there to taste the coffees they produce during the annual harvest and to buy a few different micro-lots that we will enjoy throughout the year. Right now I am roasting Hartmann Natural X, and it's really a treat. As the weather turns, the rains come and go, flowers bloom and grasses green, it's time to embrace a new beginning. Come down and celebrate with us the onset of Spring and the Easter holiday. Fill your basket with Hartmann coffee and chocolate Maduro bunnies. 
Don't forget we will be SHUT on Easter Sunday, April 1.

Buy the Hartmann coffee online. Get the dark chocolate Maduro bunnies while they last. And take a listen to our latest podcast at aacafe.org, featuring designer Joel Collins discussing the construction of The Rookery.

Happy Easter.
Brian

Easter Coffee and Chocolate Bunnies

Easter Coffee and Chocolate Bunnies
View this email in your browser
On Tuesday we released our newest natural from Finca Hartmann and by Wednesday afternoon the first roast had run out. But don't worry, I roasted more yesterday and we are fully stocked for pourovers, single-origin espresso, and whole bean by the pound. 
This very special coffee, Hartmann Natural X, is part of a series of coffees I bought from the Hartmann family, which included the recently expired Lot 5, and the two Gesha coffees we enjoyed this past December. I decided to start roasting the Hartmann Natural X for the onset of Spring and the approaching Easter holiday.  The DoubleShot pastry kitchen baked a lemon-blueberry bread to complement the subtle blackberry, pineapple, and cherry aromatics in the coffee - and it is a really delicious combination. This will be our featured coffee and food pairing through April 2. 

The Dark Chocolate Maduro Bunnies have sold very well this past week, and we very well may run out. I put in another order with our friends at Glacier Confection for more bunnies, and we are expecting them any day. These solid chocolate bunnies are silky-smooth, and melt gently on the tongue. Infused with our Maduro coffee, a special project from my friend Ariel Montoya at Hacienda El Boton in Bolivar Colombia, the chocolate takes on just the slight essence of DoubleShot Coffee. Get yours today, in the store or online.


We will be SHUT on Sunday, April 1 for our annual staff Easter egg hunt. Bunny up.

Your roastmaster,
