MIB or Tommy Lee Jones or Coffee Commercial 31

This is kind of unusual to see couple breaks up and meet new people at the same time. It's more like exchanging partners. I suppose this is the kind of railway station love story we love to watch while having a cup of favorite coffee.

Coffee Am with the logo of a simple cup of coffee

The first impression about Coffee AM is classic. Although Coffee AM has been roasting gourmet coffee since 1993, which is not a long time, the design of the website makes it feels ancient. Some of the certifications Coffee AM has caught my attention. They have certifications for Coffee Kids, USDA National Organic Program, Smithsonian Migratory Bird Commission and Rainforest Alliance. Honestly, I don’t know any of the certifications at all. I only know the taste of a nice cup of coffee. I suppose this is the only thing that most coffee lovers care about. We just want our coffee to taste good.

Jackson Hole Coffee Roasters with The Cowboy

The first thing that I notice at Jackson Hole Coffee Roasters website is the cowboy holding the cup of coffee. Obviously cowboys have nothing to do with the coffee, but it has successfully got the attention of those who stumble upon the site. I suppose that is enough to make visitors check out the site and even wanting to try out the coffee.

Bugatti Coffee Machine for automobile?

If I’m looking for a coffee machine that looks good with my car, I’ll go for Bugatti coffee machine. The design of the coffee machine actually blends perfectly with cars especially sport cars with analog meters. My choice will be the chrome Diva Espresso coffee machine. I think nobody will realize that it’s a coffee machine until they take a closer look at it.

Stainless steel kone coffee filter or paper cone?

Which coffee filter will you go for, the stainless steel cone or the paper cone? By the way the stainless steel Kone coffee filter cost USD$50. How many paper cone coffee filter can you buy with the same price? Regardless of what type of filters we use to make our coffee, the only thing that I’m concern is just the taste.

P/S: How many of you had tried out this stainless steel kone coffee filter?

No more FREE WIFI and power sockets at Starbucks?

One of the main reasons that I choose to get a cup of coffee from Starbucks is the free WIFI internet access and the available of power sockets. One cup of simple black coffee is enough for me to spend half of my day sitting in the coffee shop blogging. This is one of the things that I enjoy when visiting a coffee house. The FREE WIFI and power sockets are meant to be a service or a way to attract customers. It is supposed to help coffee shop makes more money by having customers stay on and continue to consume coffee and food. Well, at least this is what coffee house hope to achieve. Instead we find that those who are interested in the FREE WIFI and power sockets only pay for one cup of coffee and occupied the space for a long time. Those who are interested in having coffee and food will not hang out more than couple of hours. When there are more people who are interested in the FREE WIFI and power sockets, businesses will definitely affected. Obviously coffee shops prefer customers who spend a lot more than just a cup of coffee. Everything will remain the same if coffee shops are able to make a profit. If businesses are getting worst and coffee shops are not making enough money to cover the expenses, all the FREE services will eventually disappear. You can be sure that FREE WIFI and power sockets are the first to disappear from the coffee shops.

Am I right about this? Well, check out the blog post title “Sip, Squat and Surf? No More, Starbucks Says” from InvestorPlace. At the end of the day, it’s all about business and making money.

Coffee Table Coffee Chair Coffee Stove

Sometimes I just don’t get the jokes about coffee. I know coffee table as furniture and it is a very important piece of furniture in the house. Coffee chair is just like any other ordinary chair. Honestly, how do you differentiate a coffee chair from other chairs? As for coffee stove, any stove can be a coffee stove. Again, what makes a coffee stove different from any other stove?

Simple Nicola coffee with a nice website

Nicola café comes first, and then Nicola coffee follows. The logo of Nicola café is simple. We don’t actually see any coffee around the logo. In fact the first thing that impress me is no the coffee but the unique design of the website. It feels more like entertaining, enjoyment, impress or in a simple word “WOW”. You can almost see the hot steam surrounding the cup of coffee. No doubt the website is cool, but as for the coffee, we will have to taste it in order to grade it.

P/S: There is only couple of things that makes a brand of coffee great. The coffee has to taste good with a reasonable price.

This is more about the coffee maker than the coffee

How do you make a nice cup of coffee? Is it the method, equipment, techniques, skills, materials, tools, ingredients, environment or just luck? One of the interesting parts that I found when pursuing for a nice cup of coffee is the equipment used by coffee makers. There is a lot of equipment when it comes to making a cup of coffee. We have seen lots of methods for making a nice cup of coffee. Now let’s check out some of the equipment used. The first equipment that I’m going to introduce is Belle Epoque coffee maker. Honestly, I don’t think many of us (coffee lovers) have the chance to encounter this equipment. This coffee maker looks more like a robot than a coffee machine. Especially the flying eagle status on top of the equipment, I just can’t keep my eye away from it while having my cup of coffee.

Kona Cloud Coffee

Kona Cloud Coffee with the logo of cloud, mountains, green leaves and a coffee bean. The site is simple with nothing special. It is just about coffee.

P/S: I wonder there are how many company brewing and selling own coffee. If I would list out all of the company, how long will it takes? But still the only question that I am really concern is which company sells the best coffee?

Just a simple coffee cup

Sometimes all I need is just a simple cup of coffee. Often a simple cup of coffee can be very difficult to make it taste good. The water, coffee bean, temperature, timing, equipment and skill will determine the taste of the coffee. Everything has to be done perfectly to in order to get the right taste. This is why even if you’re getting the same simple cup of coffee every day from the same coffee shop, it might not taste the same.

Coffee House Coffee Shop Coffee Bar

Before I order my favorite cup of coffee, I usually take a look at the environment of the coffee house. If the environment feels good and the mood is right, I’ll search for a best spot to sit. It’s usually a place with a nice view which I can enjoy my coffee. If it is the best coffee house in town that you’re visiting, the sweet spots are always occupied. You need to be the early bird to catch the worm.

Understanding What is Coffee from Wiki

What is coffee actually? Honestly I never did ask myself this question before. The first time that I get to know about coffee is the time that I get a slip on it. It was not the kind of taste I expected at the beginning. In fact I actually hate the taste. I suppose I was too young at that time to understand coffee and not knowing how to enjoy it. Coke was my favorite that time. I was addicted to coke until I graduated from college. The first time that I really started to enjoy coffee was when I started to work. Plus I was influence by a lady who addicted to coffee. She taught me how to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and even bring me to one of the best coffee brewing shop in town. It was really an enjoyable moment and special experience for me. Thanks to her I too become a coffee addiction person. Coffee was then successfully replacing coke in my heart. That’s actually a good think because it’s much better to have coffee than coke.

After so many cups of coffee, I never actually get to know what coffee is until now. Right now I have the convenience to check what coffee is simply by checking online at Wikipedia. It has all the information that I need to know about coffee from etymology, biology, cultivation, history, culture, production, distribution, brewing, health and pharmacology. But still I think the best way to understand and get to know about coffee is to just taste it. The smell, taste and color of the coffee are the best part of learning about coffee. As there are so many different types of coffee in the world, it’s going to take some time to fully understand it. I’m still trying to learn what coffee is and I suppose it’s going to take me a very long time to fully understand it. I suppose the best way for me to learn is try to taste all the coffee that I can get my hands on.

Keep calm and drink coffee, can you?

Usually when we need to calm down, what do we drink? Normally we have a small shot of 40% alcohol, right? We see this kind of situation a lot in the movies or TV. But did you ever heard or seen anybody mentioning about having coffee to calm down? Usually coffee is best for a break instead of calm.

Is it the taste of the coffee or the girls?

I don’t suppose this will attracts coffee lovers. Regardless of what kind of marketing strategy used, the taste of the coffee is still the only thing which attracts coffee lovers. At the end of the day, you still have to maintain the taste of the coffee. But one thing for sure, guys who don’t like coffee might just give it a try, or few more tries.

P/S: Bikini might be good for business but the girls have to be careful when handling hot steam and water.

This is not coffee creamer but JazzyBird Coffee

We now have gourmet latte just like instant noodle thanks to JazzyBird Coffee. I never thought a so call fresh brewed gourmet latte can pack and sold this way. The packaging looks just like coffee creamer. The gourmet latte is actually a hard frozen piece of ice. Users have to put it in a cup with some milk and microwave it. This is actually a fast and instant way to have coffee. But still the only things that concern me is the taste. I suppose if the coffee taste good and affordable, I might actually consume them.
