Probably recorded too late at night to make much sense. Perhaps me just worrying too much about us worrying too much about how things look instead of how things taste and the relationship between the two.
It has been a while. Excuse the low production values for this video (then again, it isn’t like the others were beautifully shot). I just want to get back into the swing of things!
In case I don’t make it clear enough in the video – if you can do this (if you are a cafe or roastery) then I would highly recommend this simple experiment.
The coffees we used 1:
- this is more so you can read the descriptions than me trying to flog you coffee! ↩︎
Today’s rant – it isn’t really a rant – is about cups.
I’d love to know which are your favourites for drinking from (rather than collectable favourites) and why.
I am not really out to antagonise – this is just a personal point of view. I’d love to know the opinions of both industry and any consumers reading/watching.
I suspect I am going to start struggling for post titles soon!
Sorry about the macbook filming again today – no more from now on (honest!).
The tasting will be this Friday (The 17th, not the 16th) from 4pm to 6pm. I only need 10 minutes of your time to quickly pop in and taste 5 coffees that we will be brewing over and over. No need to RSVP or anything, but a note in the comments would be nice.
On a side note – I know this post wasn’t published when it was supposed to be, but the video was uploaded on time so I count that as a win and not a fail. So there!
I forgot my video camera, but thankfully I had made a little video on Sunday. The title says it all really.
Questions for next week in the comments please!
So to wrap up my first successful week (which has been both harder and easier than I imagined):
(Update: Thanks to Poul Mark for his generous offer of coffee from Transcend! Awesome!)
If you are up to the challenge post a link to your work in the comments – I will accept photos or video. C’mon! Have a go! It’s very silly…..
The title will make sense (honestly!).
I think I could end up being described as a bit obsessed with how the coffee industry communicates with consumers. I refuse to admit this is a bad thing.
Comments on this one would be very welcome!
I should make clear now, because I don’t think I do in the video, that I am not saying one opinion is better (or more correct) than the other. I just wanted to talk about the divide in ideas out there when it comes to brewing espresso – I am not trying to upset anyone, though I suspect I might….
