Welcome

Here is some information about me and what this blog is about.  I love coffee; I love coffee shops even more. This blog will be dedicated to talking about the amazing coffee shops and the people I meet along the way.  I have been to so many coffee shops in the past and I don’t know why I haven’t thought of starting a blog sooner.  There’s no time like the present.  This site will be full of posts about some of the coffee shops that I have visited, images, facts, and other visual stuff about coffee.

I started to like coffee about 10 years ago and now I am always on the hunt for the latest and greatest coffees and coffee shops.  I didn’t start making my own handcrafted drinks until 2012 and that is when my coffee bar started to get new additions.  Now I have everything you would need to run a mini coffee shop out of my kitchen, but I still like going to find unique coffee shops.

I am interested in working out, Tough Mudder, vintage records, Scrabble and travelling back and forth to Vancouver with my wife to see my two kids.

This blog will provide content that is approachable to the novice coffee enthusiast yet still interesting for the coffee connoisseur.  There might not be something for everybody in each post but I will try and cover a wide range of topics.  There might be occasionally off topic post just to keep things interesting.

 

Why I decided coffee?

I find coffee so interesting because everyone has some connection to it, it’s a daily comfort for many people.  Honestly, what is better than enjoying a coffee in the morning on your patio or sitting by a window in your favourite coffee shop with a cup on a rainy day?

A question I could ask everyone; how much do you know about the coffee you are consuming?  Not many people know what goes into making their favourite coffee beverages.  They just roll through their Starbucks or Tim Horton’s drive-thru every morning or throw some water on the grounds in their coffee maker at home or work.  Consume and repeat.  There isn’t much thought put into it.

Coffee is interesting, complex, captivating, and really trendy.  It’s more than a Monday morning coping mechanism.
