John, being a very sensitive and wise person, knew that Tim and I had had trouble finding great quality coffee in Ghana. (They do grow coffee here, but the low elevation means that they can only grow robusto--the coffee bean used in such brands as Folgers. Coming from Seattle, with a vibrant coffee culture, we needed something a bit more robust than robusto.)
So John brought us bags and bags of Kenyan coffee (being that he was en route from Kenya back home to the U.S.). It's been the best coffee we've had since being in Ghana. We've been trying to go through the bags slowly, but having good coffee is too exciting not to make two pots at a time!
