Early blog readers enjoy a cuppa

I pledge allegiance to Local and the Local Movement is as strong as the smell of manure in early summer here in Vermont. And so it was only fitting that once I acquired the taste for coffee (I wont tell you how long ago that was because it is not fashionable to be this old online), I drank a Vermont brew.

Grab a cup of Dark Roast, brewed to perfection at the Bristol Baker

I started with Green Mountain Coffee Roaster’s Harvard Blend, it made me feel smart. You should try it. But then I discovered the darker roasts.

Once I tried espresso and cappuccino and there was no turning back. I’ll never forget my first cappuccino, it was at the Cafe Reggio (but that’s a different story). Back in Vermont, I experimented with Speeder and Earl’s Black Forrest Blend. It has Bavarian chocolate overtones. It is wonderful, but it is a flavored coffee, which means it is a different animal.

Then I found the real thing: Vermont Coffee Company‘s Dark Roast. Accept no substitutes. Paul Ralston brews this luscious blend in small batches. His company’s tag line is “Coffee Roasted for Friends.” According to Paul, “Coffee is a social stimulus that brings people together to share ideas and stories, and when people come together, a community is formed and friends are made.” According to Daylight, this is exactly the purpose of the blog.

Blogs do exist without coffee, and coffee exists without blogs. But neither is as meaningful without community. So in the end, we can answer this blog post’s title question in the affirmative, but you should really join us for a cup of dark roast at the office…

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, nothing beats the real thing, but the Internet does create community. My grandmother, who just departed this earth at the age of 95, had important friendships online; another friend Skypes with his parents in England; successful marriages are created at online match-making sites…in some ways, the online community lifts some of the inhibitions that exist in person. But yes, “ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby…”
