YouTube (this isn’t a piece about YouTube). I have shifted through several genres of YouTube videos throughout the pandemic but the most consistent have been commentary channels.

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”
