Let me explain this new series. If you haven’t noticed yet, although this blog is coffee themed, not a whole lot of its content is actually about coffee. I’m looking to change that but I also have this actual job that I have to consider (take note; ‘consider’ not ‘prioritize’). For the meantime, and I’m taking a page out of that actual job in doing so, I’ll be publishing these newsletter types of articles every week. These will round up coffee news from anywhere in the internet, with me writing a short summary. Of course the links to the actual articles are provided, if you want to read more about it (also, so I won’t get sued).
If you have any news stories that you think are interesting, please feel free to send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tell me about it on the comments section below. Local news about coffee is absolutely welcome! Continue reading “Kapihan”

I’ve always loved doughnuts. Continue reading “Kape with a donut on the side”
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”
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”
