I had a great start to the day with a visit to Pair Cupworks this morning. I had a top notch cappuccino followed by a cup of Costa Rica pour over. The brown sugar and plum flavors in the pour over were great.

I left with some Guatemalan coffee by Adrián Hernández from La Galera Farm in the village of La Pinada, Guatemala as well as Ethiopian coffee from the Mijane Family and the Halo Hartume Station.

I spent an hour chatting with the owner Kimhak En who runs the business with his wife Eugenia Tai. He was very nice and had a ton to share on great coffee shops around the country, different techniques and equipment, and their journey starting their own shop.
