Instagram (a social network bought by Facebook for around $1B, even though they had no revenue source at the time, and still have a fairly low level of revenue coming in) is still in its early stages as a social network. I’m fairly selective with who I follow on instagram, which means I’m still able […]
Beyond the ecological nightmare of pod coffee, and the reduced quality from fresh-ground: now there’s the notion of coffee digital rights management, of a sort, to stop people using unofficial pods in their machines.
I’m giving the aeropress a brief rest from the conga line of different single origins I’ve been drinking this year, thanks to the generous offer of Marc from Griffiths Coffee. To celebrate the world cup, they have made their “Mundial 14” – a blend of South American coffees (including Brazil) that comes ground in a vacuum-sealed […]
It’s a sign of how broken the link of “I’ve read something interesting online” and “I should blog this” in my head, that I read this a few days ago, and didn’t share it here. The history of the artisanal toast trend in San Francisco is not just a story about ridiculous hipster spending and how […]

In fact, […]
When I’m visiting a cafe to get some work done, I often feel bad that I’m taking up a table that could be going to someone else. This German cafe has a different approach: it charges by the time spent, not by the coffee consumed: it’s not yet clear if it will catch on. Customers are […]
Nathan brings his usual thoroughness to the topic of how to do (good) coffee at church.
A piece of speculation about the future of a range of businesses and sectors “In the Future Everything Will Be A Coffee Shop“ (via disassociated) makes some excellent points, and a few I disagree with. In America in particular the cost of higher education and student loans is spiralling out of control – it can […]
