I gave into impulse buying a week or so ago and ordered up some Caveman Coffee. I purchased a bag of Sabretooth beans, and then, on a goofy whim, a bottle of Cold Brew.
Cold brew is a liquid coffee concentrate. You mix it 1:3 with cold water for to make a delightful iced coffee beverage.
Why did I do that? I've never been an iced coffee guy. In fact, I've never tasted real iced coffee, only room temperature coffee, and that sucks.
I could blame it on Sarge, for he occasionally extols the virtue of iced coffee. He is also the only person I know who drinks the stuff.
However, I won't blame it on Sarge. I'll blame it on Joe Rogan. Now Joe is... interesting and complicated. He's a stand-up comedian and fight announcer. He's a really, really, really libertarian libertarian. He and many of his guests smoke a hell of a lot of dope on his podcast. He's not for everyone, and I don't agree with everything he says or does. For instance, he says the best way to work out is to do so stoned. Maybe he's right, but that don't make no sense to me at all.
What the hell am I doing watching Joe Rogan on the interwebs?
Well, when you're on your back for five months trying to heal up from a bone infection, you can only read so many books. I refuse to do tee-vee. I'm not a huge movie fan. But there is a lot of interesting and entertaining stuff on the yewtoobbe.
Rogan is interesting and entertaining.
And in addition to smoking dope on the interwebs, he drinks the Caveman Coffee. Which is probably a paid sponsor. However, he was really enthusiastic about the Cold Brew, particularly when prepared as "Morning Thunder."
Morning Thunder is a cup of the Cold Brew with a shot of MCT. I did a little bit of reading up on the medium chain triglycerides and decided, what the hell, give it a shot.
What I found out, when I fixed my first cup, is that the iced coffee with MCT is really, really tasty. But wow, is it full of caffeine! You simply cannot -- well, I simply cannot -- have a cup of Morning Thunder followed by a regular cup of hot coffee. Talk about pingin' off the walls!
But boy, is that Cold Brew flavorful! It's really, really good. Damme expensive. On the other hand, it comes in a cool steel bottle. So. GREAT flavor. Maybe too much Caffeine. Expensive. Cool steel bottle (shiny shit syndrome). What to do?
And here's another cool interweb trick.
A case of .40 S&W 180gr FMJ-Flat. I've got a case of Federal 180gr HST coming too. The interwebs make buying ammo easy and remarkably inexpensive. This is a good thing. AmmoSeek is a great ammunition search engine.
For a taste of Joe Rogan, this is interesting and worth spending the time to watch and think about.
