Orange is the New Black – Function Coffee Labs

Orange is the New Black – Function Coffee Labs

There was a time a decade or so ago when I considered citrus to be an anathema to coffee. I felt that the two did not mix, like teenage mosh pits and acupuncture. But then about the time I started this blog, I became acquainted with coffees possessing natural citrus flavors, and slowly I understood that citrus not only had a place at theContinue Reading

And now USA Today, backed by the powerful mattress lobby, is trying to harsh your collegial vibes. According to a recent article, a new study seems to show that coffee drinkers have lower grade point averages than non-coffee drinkers.

Yield To Admire This Glass French Press

Yield To Admire This Glass French Press

The French Press, my personal gateway to home brewing, is often overlooked because it seems so archaic, so basic, so much less exciting than pour over. Also, the resulting cup is far less clean than coffee made with paper filters. But it can still be incredibly delicious and it’s so simple to use. You can also do a few things differently when using a French Press that will help reduce the gritty sediment that most people dislike about this brew method. James Hoffmann made a nice tutorial video about his technique. But no matter how you brew…Continue Reading
