[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] January is my least favourite month of the year. Not because it’s cold, damp and dark, but because the world around me seems to erupt into a fervent attempt to get fit, lose weight and act all smug about it. Ditching or cutting back on caffeine usually seems to be high on their agenda. […]

Extra Hot, please! Temperature matters when it comes to coffee.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] As seasons change, temperatures fall, and demand for hot drinks soars. In coffee circles, heated debates continue about the “correct” temperature to create the perfect brew, and how much to heat the milk. We’ve all done it.

Ice, Ice, baby.

Beside me is a clinking high ball glass, filled to the brim with deliciously ice-cold coffee, my inspiration for this month’s column. Like a grown-up milkshake, with the added value of caffeination, an iced coffee is the ultimate sophisticated treat […]

Stronger is better, right?

I’ve got news for you. You’ve been poorly trained in how to buy coffee. Yep, you’ve read that right. In a bid to make things simpler for you, the supermarkets dug out the most basic of marketing techniques, and have adequately lulled you into a false sense of security using a fictional numbers based coffee […]

Black Gold

How do you take your coffee? Black. No sugar. It’s the line in the movie that lets you know this is someone not to be messed with. They don’t have time for milk. Certainly no time for sugar. Last month I fessed up that latte is my drink of choice. But don’t be fooled. I’ve […]
