When Office Coffee is Politicized

#shareyourkape #korikohi #flairespressomaker

I, for one, cannot wait for season 2 of the morning show. I know it’s a behind-the-scenes look at a major network’s morning show (which is so brazen to just call itself The Morning Show), but what I really liked about it was how it explored office politics. Also, it’s set in New York City (though sometimes shot in LA) and they have the Cory Ellison character, who is my favorite (more about that later).

Caffeinated Hypebeast

Hype sells and it usually begins with an “influencer” influencing others about something, and it’s not just with shoes. For an application in coffee, few people cared about the Clever Dripper before. It was a solid starter dripper, relatively affordable, but demand wasn’t that big – until James Hoffmann made a video about it. You get my drift?

Not everybody needs this kettle. I, admittedly, got hyped about this.

Responsibly Sourced Instant Kape?

#shareyourkape #responsiblysourcedcoffee

I am skeptical about a lot of things, in fact someone who was presenting an MLM opportunity to me once got frustrated and lashed out at me because I was asking too many “negative” questions. The recent news of a major instant coffee manufacturer investing to make it’s coffee supply “100% responsibly sourced”, it might actually be helpful for their partner farmers, but it could also be them doing excellent research and marketing about some of the factors why people prefer specialty coffee. I doubt they will actually invest in good tasting coffee, so they concentrated on something they can control – “responsibly sourced” coffee. Again, I’m just a skeptic and that is just my opinion.

You should buy my course, I have a luxury car

#shareyourkape #coffeeonlock #coffeeguru

Let’s be real: I spend money on coffee and coffee equipment all so I can make coffee at home that I either like to drink or try coffee I’ve never had before – because I am staying at home and there is a dearth of specialty coffee shops here in Cainta. Will most of you like the coffee I make? I don’t think so. Do I like it? I can drink it, so yeah. Should I sell you an online course on how to make coffee? Of course not.
