The (apparent) Power of the Coffee Nap

I use a web browser that recommends articles (powered by the site/app Pocket) and one of the articles it suggested today was this beauty by Vox titled “Scientists agree: Coffee naps are better than coffee or naps alone”. I fully agree.

It’s a good read, not only telling us that coffee naps are good but actually presenting facts to support it. “Coffee Nap” is Continue reading “The (apparent) Power of the Coffee Nap”

You may have seen recent articles about an alarming number of coffee species facing extinction. Here’s another (albeit less informed) one

I’ve touched on it with the second part of the “Instant coffee, is it Kape” series. Those lovely, complex flavored Arabica beans are in danger of extinction because the places where they grow are dying out.

Fun fact: Those slabs of concrete were once the flooring inside our house.

The study being referenced by the articles was conducted by the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens in the UK, Continue reading “You may have seen recent articles about an alarming number of coffee species facing extinction. Here’s another (albeit less informed) one”

I seldom drink coffee early in the morning, I am right but also wrong. You may be too!

Catchy title, ain’t it? Sounds like I did a whole lot of research, right? No. I just opened up several articles (okay, four) and started typing away.

Well, yes, the picture is too warm. But look at the color of that coffee!

Okay, maybe it wasn’t that random. At the start of the year – January 4, 2019, to be exact – I posted a question on my IG stories: “What time in the day do you usually have your first cup/shot (of coffee)”? Turnout was intense! I had to sort through hundreds of answers! Okay, it was more 8 answers – but still, that’s about 3% of the number of followers I had that time.

Instant Coffee, is it Kape? Bitterness is not my best friend

#shareyourkape #satchmiteam #satchmistore

Does instant coffee really taste inferior to brewed coffee? I talked extensively about the quality of beans and the instant coffee manufacturers not caring about taste as long as they sell a lot. For actual coffee fanatics (I do not consider myself as one), the difference will be pronounced. But how about average Joes like us?

This is the office instant coffee. The foam means nothing.

Coffee before bed sounds like a good plan, or is it?

I’ll tell you the answer now: Coffee at night is not a good plan, generally. Do read on though. I’m someone who drinks a cup at night (usually something with milk like a Latte or Mocha, an EACH Mocha) and I’m writing this for one thing, and one thing only: To prove that this habit is not the reason I find it hard to sleep at night.

For research purposes (excuses) I am drinking a mug of coffee at 7pm in the evening

People associate themselves with coffee, here’s (probably) why

I have not watched Inglorious Basterds (the whole movie) ever. I have, however, watched a handful of snippets of scenes through YouTube. I probably have a weird version of it stitched together in my imagination. My most favorite scenes are when Fassbender’s character gets killed in a bloody shootout and; Hans Landa creeping the F out of Shoshana Dreyfus in the famous Strudel Scene. Yes, I totally dissed Fassbender because I think he’s overrated.

Instant coffee, is it Kape? – The Coffee Bean, not the tea leaf

Let’s keep this within the bounds of the mass-produced, instant coffee brands that majority of the population drink (probably every day), shall we. You can argue that there are the “premium lines” that these instant coffee producers have that are supposed to be better (and thus more expensive). To me, though, that’s most probably just marketing and it’s almost the exact same ingredients there.
