Ok ok, so I'm sorry it's been over a month since I first announced a new lens toy (didn't mean to be such a tease!), but I finally get to show it off in this post. This morning's little coffee routine was all shot on the 85mm f1.8, a pretty sweet not-so-little lens. It produces some lovely creamy bokeh and allows me to creep on street scenes from a bit farther away. It's also great for portrait-y shots, as there's less distortion than on the 50mm.
This morning was also the first time I finally got to use the Chemex, with some great Yemen Moka Sanani beans (at $32.75/lb, they better be!) no less. When I first smelled the whole beans, they really reminded me more of dark chocolate than coffee, but they opened up nicely after grinding.
I kinda reek of coffee today... with an early morning start at Abraco, then Roasting Plant for beans, then Chemex-ing those beans, then more coffee at the Kava Cafe on the west side, it may have been a tad overkill. I took three out of the six pictures here - can you guess which ones? :P
