Working from home during quarantine, don’t forget your coffee

I have my complaints, but I am grateful I have an opportunity to work from home and even more grateful I am living in a home that makes it relatively easy to just #stayathome to help #flattenthecurve. Having said that, it’s not my dream job, but it’s what I have now and it helps pay the bills.

Your coffee is Loud not Strong

Proper coffee is so hard to come by but it is here in the Philippines

I’ve been thinking about the topic for this post since late 2019. I’ve even drafted something, but reading through that now it doesn’t capture the message I really want to put out to everyone who reads this blog. So this is an entirely new draft of an idea I have been thinking about for a long time: Your coffee is loud not strong.

Maybe why Hotel coffee is generally bitter?

ShareYourKape weekly coffee news Kapihan

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 shareyourkape@gmail.com or tell me about it on the comments section below. Local news about coffee is absolutely welcome! Continue reading “Kapihan”

W Café Cainta. More of this please.

You find it by seeing a large portrait-oriented tarp of a Frappe — as well as a round sign that only has a red “W” on it. They would have had me with the W. The tarp is there to attract more customers. They need to shout to everyone “we have frappes” or else no one will climb the two flights of stairs to the cafe.

They do have decent espresso though.

A family was buying (beyond) dark roast coffee beans in a grocery store; I was buying sago

You’ve seen those clear boxes section from a major grocery chain, right? Where you can pick dried fish, dried mushrooms, packed beans, and yes coffee beans. BTW, have you tried cooking large sago (tapioca pearls) at home? Dude, it took me about 6 hours in total and it involved a lot of stirring, turning the fire off, straining, and waiting. I digress…
