An unexpected connection

Hi everyone!  I’m Yolanda, Oscar’s mom.  What a lovely surprise today when I dashed into Whole Foods in Brooklyn only to come face to face with Sumatra Lintong coffee.  If you look closely at the photo, you’ll see that the coffee beans are dated September 16.  I guess that means they arrived in Brooklyn two days ago. I wonder when they were picked and dried.  How long were they in transit?  When might the beans growing this week on Sumatra make their way to Brooklyn?

Standing by the store’s coffee grinder as it processed my beans, I breathed deeply and took in the rich aroma of Lintong coffee.  I closed my eyes and imagined the Indonesia 2.0 cohort enjoying the same smell half a world away.  My fellow shoppers probably wondered why I looked so happy on this gray, rainy day.

Keep those yaks coming, we can’t wait to hear more!
