We wanted to share the beautiful work of Philz Fan Ryan Chua. Fashion, Photography and Coffee, check her out!
Everybody knows, perhaps nobody in baseball loves coffee more than Hunter Pence. Tall and Texan, the former Astro and Philly joined the Giants last year only to prove his worth in the World Series, both as a player and an inspirational leader to the team. San Francisco fell in love with Hunter and Hunter fell in love with San Francisco. Maybe it had something to do with the coffee. We were grateful to learn he was a fan when he posted on Twitter a picture of a Philz bag and a pot of French Press he brewed at home. What an honor it was this morning when he came into our Mission Bay location near AT&T park with a group of friends, sat among our dear customers and enjoyed a cup of Philz. Phil, who is always at one location or another happened to be there making coffee. Kismet! (and Go Giants!)
We wanted to share the lush bass and beats with the Mighty Might Philz Fan and San Jose Barista @jprastrullo (follow him on Twitter)
Phil had the pleasure of hand delivering coffee to Amanda Warner of MNDR fame. Feed me Diamonds or Philz Coffee
Coffee & Plum Pork Loin How to get a juicy pork loin.
Serves 4 as main course (2 to 3 thin slices per person)
2 lbs boneless pork loin
4 tablespoons plum sauce
½ cup finely ground dark roast coffee
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground tarragon
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse the pork loin under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place the loin in a shallow baking dish or pan. Bathe the pork loin in the plum sauce so it is thoroughly covered.
In a small bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients until well combined. Gently sprinkle the dry rub all over the pork loin (flipping it over when one side is covered) and gently press the dry rub into the pork. Most of it should stick to the pork since the plum sauce acts as glue.
Roast in the middle rack of the oven for just about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving. The center of the pork loin should be a lovely white shade with juices running when you cut into it.
