The End of 2010 and The Beginning of 2011

A lot of things have been going on in 2010 and lots of changes throughout the last 12 month. Still the only thing that is not changing is my coffee. I’m still having my favorite coffee every morning. Each year when it comes to the last day of the year, it’s review time. It’s a time to look back of what we did and what improvement we should do. At most we should prepare ourselves to do better next year. This year I promise myself to work hard on blogging. I manage to write at least 2 posts a day and I hope to write at least 3 blog posts per day in 2011. My online income has improved and stable at the moment, but still haven’t reach my minimum target amount. I hope that my online earning will increase drastically next year so that I can get on with my other plans. There are lots of things that I’m hoping to achieve next year, but I have to do it one at a time step by step.

This year I manage to bring at least 3 of my blogs in the first two pages of Google search results for some keywords. I suppose next year will be focus more on making use of the traffic to make money. Frankly speaking, I will need some income to invest on my blogs and make it better. If I really want to make blogging as my full time job, I need to make enough money to survive so that I can continue blogging. The main goal is not about making a lot of money, it’s about making enough money to do what I like. In my case, it’s simply just blogging.

The one that preparing our favorite coffee

As a coffee lover, we tend to be the one standing in front of the coffee bar or cash counter paying for our cup of favorite coffee. We enjoy watching our coffee being prepare and smell the flavor before tasting it. I suppose that’s the most enjoyable period in the early morning before working.

Have you ever wonder what it’s like taking the opposite side of receiving the coffee? Yes, the one who needs to wake up much earlier having the job of preparing the coffee for thousands of people who are on their way to work. I have been writing from my point of view as a coffee drinker, coffee taster, coffee buyer and coffee evaluator. Now let us hear the voice from the one that serving our favorite coffee.

This is a letter especially for coffee House customers.

When it comes to playing game like World of Warcraft online, you need an updated computer with high performance. Especially with the latest release of Cataclysm expansion version, you’ll also need a good video card and updated software driver.

Coffee with Alcohol

I never try much on coffee with alcohol but for some of the coffee alcohol that my friend introduce, it taste good. Especially during Christmas season when the weather is cold, a hot cup of coffee with alcohol can warm you up. Coffee with alcohol is suitable when friends and family getting together for a drink. It’s definitely not when I’m trying to stay awake trying to complete my work. Plain simple black coffee is still the only one for me during working hour. Here a post about “Coffee Drinks and Coffee Drink Recipes with Alcohol” which you can try to make on this holiday season. Enjoy it with your friends and family. Merry Christmas.

Does the flavor of the coffee affected by the altitude of the location grown?

Although the geography location of coffee grown is in the tropical, but the altitude of the location might affect the flavors. According to the post “The Effect of Altitude on Coffee Flavor”, the altitude of which coffee is grown contributes significantly to a coffee’s taste profile. I never did included altitude as a factor of the flavors until I read the post. I do believe the soil and water of the location grown affects the flavor. Well, there’s only one way to find out if it’s true or not. We just have to go ahead and taste the coffee with different altitude. It will be better to make sure that the soil and water is the same so that we only have altitude as variable to really confirm that altitude affects the flavor. There is a chart in the post above which explains the flavors with different altitude. It seems that the flavor of the coffee taste better in a higher altitude.

Having creamer for your Coffee

I’m not a fan of coffee creamer because most of the time I just enjoy having plain simple black coffee. A simple black coffee without sugar or creamer allows me to taste the original flavor of the coffee. For some of you coffee lovers, who like to include sugar and creamer, make sure that you’re consuming them right and in a small range. Having too much sugar or creamer might not be good to our health. Especially when you’re purchasing creamer from the stores, you might want to check out the ingredients of the creamer before using them.

If you’re a coffee lover that goes with coffee creamer, perhaps you might want to make your own coffee creamer. Homemade coffee creamer will definitely taste better and healthier. Check out the post title “Homemade Coffee Creamer” from Deliciously Organic and you’ll find some recipe for homemade coffee creamer. I think this is just a basic recipe. But for a start it’s good enough to get you create your own coffee creamer. You may use this recipe as a basic to start create your own flavors of coffee creamer. Having a list of homemade coffee creamer to serve your guest and yourself will be nice.
