This batch was sweeter than others. Still very grapey and high proof (for wine anyway). It's still the old timers making it and that's how they like it. I'm planning on making my first batch this fall.

Roasted here in Houston.
I know Katz's coffee (also very good, imo - tastes much like NY diner coffee I grew up on) is roasted there. Didn't know Ruta Maya used roasters there.

What grape variety?  I used to make wine with Finger Lakes grapes (Riesling, seyval blanc, pinot noir, baco noir, chambourcin, petite sirah, cab franc).

No, but toying with the idea of the spring sometime before it gets stupid hot.

Fratlelli Perrata 2009 Sangiovese. Among the finest Sangioveses I've ever had.  That said, their Charbono is my "electric chair" wine, if you get my drift.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.
