Ugly Mug

Ugly Mug

Part of the Fill in the Coffee Map Series Subject: Ugly Mug Cafe and Roastery Location: Ypsilanti, MI WiFi?: yes Rating: 6+ [see key] I first heard about the glory of Ypsilanti almost ten years ago. Naturally I speak of a time-tested coffee establishment called the Ugly Mug, a local coffeehouse and roastery that’s been around as long as I’ve been writing this blog.

Mugged: Honduras La Gloria [Joffrey’s]

Mugged: Honduras La Gloria [Joffrey’s]

Subject: Joffrey’s Coffee Mugged: Honduras La Gloria Rating [see key]: 5+ It’s quite natural to associate specific food and drink with good times. For years I associated sausage rolls with Christmas (that is until my mom decided she didn’t like baking anymore, but that’s another tale). Coconuts distinctly remind me of the beach in summertime, and thanks to my Irish grandparents, cashews drawContinue Reading

Cafezinho (Coffee Brazilian Style)

Cafezinho (Coffee Brazilian Style)

One could sit here and write volumes about coffee in Brazil, but if you want to read a good book about it, go to your local library and look for a copy of Vassouras: A Brazilian Coffee County, 1850-1890. The Roles of Planter and Slave in a Changing Society. Stanley J. Stein. New York: Atheneum, 1976. Instead, we’ll tell …Continue Reading

BeanSafe Coffee Storage Container Review

BeanSafe Coffee Storage Container Review

Freshly roasted coffee deserves proper storage. When coffee beans have just been roasted, they release a lot of CO2, especially for the first few days. Ideally you want to let the CO2 out, but also keep the oxygen from coming in. Oxygen is an enemy of fresh coffee, along with light, heat, and moisture. Introducing BeanSafe Coffee Storage Containers BeanSafe Coffee Storage containers provide a one-way valve and otherwise airtight storage solution to keep your coffee beans fresh. Although they can also keep…Continue Reading

Kimera Koffee Review

Kimera Koffee Review

Kimera Koffee Coffee with cognitive enhancers: Boosted Energy Level Optimized Focus and Concentration Enhanced Athletic Performance I tried Kimera Koffee during my morning coffee routine to see if it had a noticeable difference on my cognition as outline above.

Cinnamon Cold Brew Coffee

Cinnamon Cold Brew Coffee

Cold brew coffees are known for being wonderfully smooth and flavorful. They’are also typically brewed in a concentrated form, so that you can easily use them as a base for flavored iced coffee drinks without ending up with something watery. I loved the idea of adding some additional flavor to my cold brew, but decided that I wanted to add the flavor before the coffee was brewed, rather than waiting to add it to my finished drinks. This Cinnamon Cold Brew Coffee is infused with…Continue Reading

A Guide To The Best of Gothenburg

A Guide To The Best of Gothenburg

Nearly four years ago I packed up my clothing and coffee gear and moved from a sleepy town on the midcoast of Maine to the second city of Sweden—Gothenburg. It’s one of those Swedish cities that most people have never heard of and it can be difficult to persuade people to visit when it’s so close to the more tempting capital cities like Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo. But Gothenburg has its own merits. It is the home of Volvo and world re-known bands like The Knife, Little Dragon, In Flames and Ace of Base…Continue Reading

Kaldi’s Coffee // Mexico Coatepec

Last year, while at Coffee Fest, I ran into the guys from Kaldi’s Coffee, who were peddling a new coffee that they were very proud of. For the first time in four years, Kaldi’s was offering a Mexican coffee. Not because they have anything against the region, but because nothing spectacular, really, comes out of it. It’s no secret that …Continue Reading
