You mean I get to blog about coffee? For real? Where's the cameras - c'mon, who put you up to this?
Oh, OK. You were serious. Let's begin.
First, a smidge of background. For a long time, I drank my coffee with skim milk and splenda sugar: the gay American way. Then, I got this job in a teeny, tiny office. There were only four of us in there, and we had one of those iddy-bitty college fridges. The milk kept going bad, and I got tired of being the only one who replaced it. So, I started drinking it black.
We were in a neighborhood where the only supermarket was a Whole Foods, which didn't sell any kind of fake sugar. I drew the line at buying boxes of Splenda with my groceries at home to bring into the office. And, I was sick of feeling guilty stealing handfuls of them from the Starbucks downstairs. So, I cut out the sweetener. This is ironic, because my sweet tooth is the size of Kanye's ego. So now I drink my coffee black with no sugar. This is hot.
OK, now the focus of this post: First of all, biscotti is the name of the blog. Get it? B'Scotty. Oh, right - it would help if I told you my name is Scott, and my friends call me Scotty.

The Big Brews at Roaste.com suggested I get to know the main coffee origins according to growing region. So, I stopped by a gourmet shop and asked what they recommended. How about Columbian? Very good, I thought. Sounds like the perfect place to start. Which kind do you want - we have a mild roast and a strong roast?
Idiot. Of course, I took the strong roast. The idiot barista made up for it by surprising me with a courtesy shot of the Columbian coffee I just bought. Ooooh, child! This shiz was srsly GOoD ! Now, I don't have the lexicon down like the other coffee bloggers on roaste.com - this stuff was definitely bold, but I can't tell you if it was clean, citrusy or smoky. But honestly - it just tasted like coffee should, if that makes sense. It was like strong and bold and...for some reason the word 'round' comes to mind. No, full - yeah, it was definitely Full.
Even better? I got to expense it.
How was my first post? I was kind of nervous about it, to be honest. So, before I started writing, I fortified myself with the big Comfort Food guns. The really fattening stuff - I'm talkin bout ice cream. What flavor? Not that I'm superstitious or anything, but -
