Racing monkeys? Cuban coffee? No Birds?

I came home from work yesterday and had a package from my long time friend, Marti. We have known each other since 1975 or maybe even 74. We lost touch for a few years there but now we have some kind of contact each day. I must admit, I thought she forgot about me, now that she is famous and all. ;-)
She just came back from a trip to Florida with her mom and daughter. I'm not sure exactly what it was (being a "gringo" and all) but it was some kind of migration back to the Cuban roots, or as close as you can get to Cuba. You can read all about it on her blog, click HERE.

While there she picked up a lovely demitasse cup and saucer (my favorite) that had a palm tree with the words CUBA on it (her favorite) and some great looking coffee, which I can't wait to try. I want to be able to tell her friend over at Babalu that I love the coffee. I plan to try it soon.....maybe tonight!
Friendship is such a blessing, and I truly appreciate you Marti! Hope you have a great summer.
I loved the movie Jon did of the monkeys! How cute was that?
Check out Jon's movie below.

I hope you enjoy the coffee as not only is it a good blend, but its chock full of Marta love.

It is I who am blessed to call you my friend.
FABULOUS COFFEE! I hope you enjoy it.
And thanks for including Jon's movie on your blog. He was so proud. =D
(p.s. - I would NEVER forget you)

Thanks for the post Val! I can't wait to try the coffee! And Marti...the movie was so great! Just like Spielgberg. Or...that's how M. Night got started...making his own home movies!
