Coffee Fair at the World Forestry Center




I went to the Coffee Fair at the World Forestry Center in Portland. One of the vendors had a test where you could try to identify many different scents from samples. I got all of them right except two -- I reversed "vanilla" and "butter." She told me that getting this many right was unusual.


An artist there was making watercolor paintings using coffee as the paint. In the picture above she is working on a version of "American Gothic." I thought these were cool so I bought a small one that shows a street cafe that looks like it could be in Paris.
