Blog It, Toledo: Java blogsWritten by Lisa Renee Ward | | firstname.lastname@example.org
On my birthday my coffee pot died, which created a scenario where my son bought me a new coffee pot and my second youngest daughter bought me a French Press coffee maker. It’s easy to see why coffee has been on my mind since I’ve discovered that I really enjoy the difference in coffee from the French Press. That said, I also enjoy the speed and easy of my new automatic coffee pot. I love to try different types of coffees, and since I also have a coffee grinder, it’s possible to try different coffees in both makers. While the price can be a bit higher, I’m one of those free trade coffee buying persons, my current favorite is Sumatra.
A nice blog and twitter site for those of you interested in learning more about Fair Trade is Ask for Fair Trade. The news portion of the blog covers more indepth issues, with the twitter side providing quicker updates and bits of information.
Once upon a time I had a machine that made lattes, that’s since died, but when I visited Coffee Sage the first thing that caught my eye was a YouTube video on how to make decorations in your latte. That was pretty amazing, and the rest of the site is a recommended visit as well, it’s got a large number of resources and consumer tips.
Looking for reviews of coffees and where to drink it? Then Pure Coffee is the blog for you. I was especially interested in the review portions of the blog related to coffee, the site focuses mainly on reviewing places to drink coffee and the coffee served there.
Chemically Imbalanced is a fun blog to read, it’s trendy and focuses quite a bit on the barista side of coffee making, which is interesting to read about. There are lots of pictures that really add to the blog’s character as well as personal touches in the posts, mentioning the “blog children” who appear to be learning coffee in style.
Want to learn more about coffee? Talk about Coffee is one of the most informational blogs I’ve discovered when it comes to coffee. From helping you learn the terminology to use before you approach the barista, to learning about the different types of coffees, this blog has it. For those experts out there who want to venture into roasting their own beans? This site even has directions on how to do that.
Lastly, for those of you who have never experienced the joy of coffee from a French Press? Visit French Press Coffee for everything from what type to buy to how to make it. It does take a bit more time than using an automatic coffee maker, but the difference in taste is amazing.
