“A Coffee Blog for Caffeinated Inspiration.”
Coffee. Design. Yes, please.
An open conversation about coffee, and why it tastes how it tastes
Created by NYT’s coffee correspondent, Oliver Strand, Wet Mill is a place to ask questions and to get answers. From professionals.
Colonna and Smalls is a coffee house in Bath, UK. Their very thoughtful blog is written by Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood, the 2012 UK barista champ.
The Wirecutter knows coffee…
On the “best” method of making coffee:
There is no one “best” method of making coffee. So, there is no best gear for making coffee. […] (That said, pod machines are truly awful.)
On the preeminence of getting ahold of a good grinder…
First off, whether you brew with an Aeropress, French Press, Chemex or Clever, you’re going to spend more money on a grinder than the actual brewing gear. And that’s okay, because it’s the most important piece of coffee gear you’ll own
On the bulk of home auto-drip machines…
Nearly all common home machines often only hit around 180 or less. So the coffee they make sucks
Rrrright? The Wirecutter gets it.
Which is surprising considering it’s a gadget site. Wait, maybe that’s not so surprising. We coffee types do love our gadgets after all (don’t try to deny it, just look at your cupboard).
And that’s why a gadget site is getting on the list. On a coffee site.
Everyone has something that they specialize in, something they are passionate about. Outside of that field, you might think that they are crazy… but within the field of Olympic Curling, for example, I’m sure there are deep debates about what animal hair to use for a Curling broom. Such is the specificity we can achieve when groups of people band together in common interest. It’s not for everyone, and it’s not supposed to be.
Speaking of @jimseven, James Hoffmann’s blog definitely belongs on my list of favorites…
One of the reasons I continue to write this is because it is a journal of sorts for where I am, what I am thinking, and a way to share that with a large, global audience who may react to it in a way that inspires me.
James is co-owner of Square Mile Coffee Roasters in London, England.
A world-renowned roaster of fine coffees. When he asked, “have you been following the blog?”, I had to say “no”.
Coffee News & Frothy Gossip
Coffee-centered, tabloid-style frivolity, with the occasional serious scoop thrown in for good measure. A sort of pulse of the specialty coffee community.
Some bloglove for @FRSHGRND…
