If the experience of doing a bunch of video blogs has taught me anything it is that I much prefer writing about coffee.
I was thinking the other day that I really enjoy a lot of blogs that I read, but having read a bit about wine or food recently I felt that what I wanted to read were decent length, well thought out articles about coffee. Any aspect of coffee really, just researched and interesting.
I still want to read articles like that, but I figure that if you want something you may as well start yourself. I’ve had the jameshoffmann.co.uk domain kicking around for a while so I figured it was time to do something with it.
The first article is up now, and is about as short as they’ll be on there. I won’t post stuff up there very often, and it is as much for me to indulge in the pleasure of writing as anything else. I am not saying these will be perfectly researched, detailed, faultless things – you can doubtless pick a million holes in this first one and on – but that is what I am working towards (knowing I’ll never get there).
I deeply enjoy writing about coffee, and want to do it better so I feel it ought to have its own distinct channel. I am not abandoning this site – it will merely have a stronger focus on blogging, and hopefully get updated a bit more often, and to keep the community and conversation that goes on here for which I am very grateful.
Anyways – here’s the link: Journalism and Coffee
On a side note – there are two videos left and I hope to finish them soon, plus I will hopefully have an update to the Chemex technique video done some time in September. Plus I need to wrap up the latte art competition and get a winner announced! All this very soon.
