Good afternoon. We’ve been enjoying a wonderful PNW summer. Smoking lots of medical, enjoying many bike rides, and chilling by the pool.
It’s important for us at Spro & Dro to try coffees roasted from all around the country. We are pretty flush with roasters here on the west coast so we searched for an east coast coffee. This week we’ve got Square One Coffee from Lancaster PA. The coffee is La Victoria, Colombia. It is washed and sun dried.
We brewed this beautiful coffee with the Hario electric kettle and the baby Chemex. Yeah, baby Chemex. It’s pretty much our favorite way to brew coffee right now. They even make a special filter just for it. And as always our Baratza Encore ground those beans to perfection.
Dark cherry and almond muffin.
25g coffee to 425g of water. Brew time was 3:23 seconds total.
What ended up in the cup was pretty delicious. It tasted like the best ever chocolate covered cherries. The mouth feel was super silky. As the coffee cooled a lot of lemon and cherry sweetness came through.
We also got a sample of Ethiopia Gelana Abaya Natural. Hecka cacao and red wine in the dry aroma. In the cup the cacao turned into milk chocolate. The red wine was still there too.
We HIGHLY recommend ordering up some Square One Coffee.

OK I know it’s been a while since my last post. My apologies. I’ve been going through some crazy ish. The ish has settled and I’ll be able to plug your feed up with savory nuggets more often.
My good friends at Sprudge recently ran a post about a coffee shop owner that got turned in for growing mad buds. I gave them a little quote for the story. Check it out here!
Check in next week for a review of Square One Coffee’s Colombia La Victoria!

Provider: Lacey Cross
Aroma: Citrus & blueberry muffin
Appearance: Very dense buds. I recommend grinding them a little.
Smoke: The citrus and blueberry are amplified finishing with a nice orange blossom. I really enjoyed the blueberry muffin aftertaste.
Effects: This stuff puts you on your ass. I tried to play Call of Duty but had to take a nap (kinda sad). Make sure to have plenty of munchies on hand too. COUCH LOCK

Spro & Dro had time this weekend to check out the beach. We hiked through some tress and walked through some dunes. On our way we saw an eagle and it was kind of AMAZE-balls. We hope you had a great weekend too!

I live out in the county. Not like way out but far enough. Even though I am out here there are two dispensaries within walking distance. My favorite one is Sonshine Organics Network. I’ve been going there for a couple of months now. they host a farmers market every other weekend of the month. They also have a bar that you can order a hit of hash or weed.
A few weeks ago I was flush with Indicas so I asked the budtender for a good Sativa. He recommended the Jack’s Cleaner. I bought a dub sack. Two days later I got paid and bought a 1/2oz. This is my most absolute favorite Sativa I have ever had. It might actually be the best bud I have ever had.
Provider: Sonshine Organics Network
Aroma: Pungent and piney. Almost a diesel pinesol smell.
Smoke: Light up front but gets heavy after a few seconds.
Effects: This is the Adderall of weed. It comes on really heavy up front behind the eyes and quickly cools off into a focused creative high. Jack’s Cleaner is my most favorite MMJ to date. The high lasts for up to four hours. If you see Jack’s Cleaner at your local dispensary PICK SOME UP!!!!!!!!!

John Snaza, Sheriff of Thurston County
Spro & Dro was recently contacted by our friends at Lacey Cross to participate in a study funded by KIRO News, and supported by the Thurston County Sheriff’s department! This one is going to be epic!!!
The study looks like this:
Slated for Monday, January 28th, three subjects (one heavy smoker, one moderate, and one light smoker), two Deputies from the Sheriff’s department, one driving school teacher, one KIRO news camera crew with a KIRO news personality.
The study will be conducted at the Olympia Municipal Airport. The subjects will be given regulated bong hits of .25 grams each until they admit they’re too impaired to drive. Then we’re hoping in a car! We’ll drive through a course while being monitored closely by the driving instructor and deputies. I’ll be representing the light/recreational smoker. After the test, we won’t be able to drive away in front of the cops… so I’m walking straight over to Sound City Coffee to chill.. This is going to be quite the sensory experience!
The idea is to give the state a better idea of what stoned drivers look like. We’re hoping the info gained from these studies can be used in the future during the law making process.
