TJ’s Limited Edition Peaberry

…from Kauai.

If you live in an area bereft of Trader Joe’s and you like coffee, I have a little bit of pity for you today.  Currently, Trader Joe’s has a Limited Edition Peaberry from Kauai.  According to the can, the coffee is bright, smooth, and sweet.  Boy, are they right!

From Wiki:

Peaberry, also known as caracoli, is a type of coffee bean. Normally the fruit of the coffee plant develops as two halves of a bean within a single cherry, but sometimes only one of the two seeds gets fertilized so there is nothing to flatten it. This oval (or pea-shaped) bean is known as peaberry. Typically around 5% of all coffee beans harvested are of this form.

We brewed the first batch in our 12-cup french press.  And the result was lovely.  I found the roast to be a little hard, the bean is slightly burnt; but the flavour comes through!  Medium acidity, medium body.  Bright and sweet.  Very sweet!

So if you live near a Trader Joe’s and love good coffee, go buy this whole bean peaberry coffee!  Or come over to our place and I’ll brew you some.

Cheers!

The Busy-ness of the Business

Hey friends… Ryan and I are very busy these days.

I’ve just started the Act One (Saturday) Writing Program. I’m working part-time at Hero Pictures International and I’m also getting my voice acting demos out to agents very soon.

Finally, both Ryan and I are on the producing team of a feature film entitled The Rock ‘n’ Roll Dreams of Duncan Christopher about which we’re very excited! So producing activities for that are taking up a lot of our time. Yup! We’re busy!

Just wanted to give a little update on the Team Fritch activities… Hope you’re all happy and healthy! Blessings… Us.

P.S. We went to Disney’s California Adventure on Sunday! Photos are here!!

Down to the Wire

Today, Nikki Finke posted this TIME article about The Wire’s writers and their current and newly-published policy about the Drug War.

I find it relevant that their little show, “admittedly a small shard of the TV universe” has such an invested following!  The article makes the suggestion that their audience, their viewers, look to them, the writers, for meaningful, relevant advice about what to do about this giant, important social problem.  I think it means that if you write about significant subject matter, the audience will expect you to have a significant prescription for their actions!

Caveat venditor.

Let the seller beware: the audience is looking for substance!
