April 2011: Clever/Technivorm Comparison; New Look for Sweet Maria's Library

Mon, 2011-04-11

Are Clever Coffee Drippers good because they are an inexpensive way to make coffee? Do Technivorm brewers make good coffee because they cost almost $300? After all, don’t both brewers infuse water with ground coffee? We thought it would be interesting to compare what the two brewers do well and expose their differences, especially since there is such a wide disparity in their price.

Feb 2011: More Coffee Market Craziness; Life without Centrals?

Tue, 2011-02-01

Coffee is about to get ridiculously expensive. I sit here in Kenya as I write this, having set aside 271 bags of amazing coffee, but at prices that would have been unbelievable, even last year. Auction prices have hit new highs, $10.08 in last week’s auction. It's hard to speculate if those particular lots were bid up due to some prior arrangement with a buyer who specified no cap, or whether 2 parties thought the coffee was that good. (I cupped a different lot that went over $10 in the auction and did not think it was a real Gran Cru coffee).
