Thanks for understanding!*There is a Chatter Thread on Ravelry so we can encourage each other along the way.Ask the Geeky Girls - Denise (fuzziekit) from Michigan asks:C.C. & Dami: You both like coffee and tea. That is very obvious. What is your preferred method for making either drink at home? I like a good pour over method or a french press. The only reason I don’t make more french press is because of the clean up…. I hate cleaning the french press out. But I know there are other methods out there. (having worked in a coffee roasters retail shop I do know a lot of them.) Do you prefer a cold brew or a hot brew? How do you take you coffee and tea? Black or with “additives” such as cream, sugar, honey, lemon? Of the current drinks out at cafes, what is your current favorite? Also what is your all time favorite at cafes? This doesn’t have to be at a big chain store either, one of my favorite drinks is at a local twenty four hour coffeehouse, the drink is called an Irish Carbomb and the café is called Bitter End. (C.C. I think I know yours but you might surprise me.)Misc. - ~Winners Announced - The lovely Delissa McMillen (Delissa) of Momof3sillyboys on Etsy gave us 3 sets of stitch markers to give away to you. 3 prize winners each won 1 random set of stitch markers.~Support the Podcast, Become A Patron~Want another way to help support our podcast?
