Bean down so gosh darn long

I’m totally psyched to head over to the Manual Brew Down at RBC later tonight and do some in-depth reporting, so much so that I skipped my usual afternoon coffee in favor of — wait for it — a decaf chai tea latte! What? I know, right! Why didn’t I just go and join some sort of a hemp-based sun cult instead? Well, probably because I intend to drink as much artisanal coffee as I can handle tonight without getting sick. My guess is, everyone’s gonna be totally psyched by the end of this thing. Equal parts psyched and drunk, on account of the beer. It’s going to be like a Four Loko party, except no one’s tongue is going to be purple, except for mine, and I’m not telling you why.

On that note, let’s watch a very sexy French Press video compliments of the folks over at Sprouted Kitchen.
