Antwerp Barista
Because of our stay at the Ace Hotel in Portland and New York I had a very good look at Stumptown Coffee Roasters these days. You can see this as a review of this coffee company, but for me it's more like a market search and comments on how they work. This is all purely personal and discussable of course.

Everyone has heard of the classic McDonald’s Coffee Too Hot lawsuit, but what about those other coffee-related legal actions that have gone unnoticed and unmentioned? It’s with the utmost pride and pleasure we bring you this barrister’s compendium of The Lesser Known Lawsuits in Coffee History.

The winners haven’t been announced yet (January?) but if you’re looking for some new coffees to try at home, this would be a good place to start!

Daniel's World of Coffee
In a previous post, I neglected to mention one of the most charming things I discovered about coffee in Sweden, the tradition of fika. Fika is an afternoon coffee break, often with sweets and baked goods. It's similar to English tea time, but does not have such a formalized background. In fact "fika" can mean a break of any kind, or even a little date. But usually the term refers to a break in the afternoon for refreshment, the chief form of which is coffee.

I might as well get this out of the way - I am not happy to be attending a trade show out at the airport in the way off suburbs of Toronto. And I'm not enthusiastic about the attendance to take place at the Canadian Barista Championships.

It’s unreliable, unaccountable, frequently unattainable, and I love it so. It, in this case, is Yemen Mokha, the stuff of heirloom varietals grown in village gardens and courtyards and tiny greenspaces carved out of the walls and warrens of ancient Arabian cities like Sana’a and Ismaili, where folk have tread for more than two and a half millennia.

Barista Magazine
While we were at Coffee Fest Seattle, one of Italy’s most famous coffee shows—TriestEspresso—was taking place on the other side of the world, in Trieste, Italy, to be exact. I was lucky enough to visit Trieste back in 2004 for the World Barista Championship, so I can testify that it’s a pretty awesome place to experience specialty coffee, in any form, and has been for hundreds of years.

A little serious (with the seriousness of gin), but with enough fruity overtones to ensure no one gets ponderous in conversation or step, the Après Coup is easy enough to make on a whim but layered enough in flavor to support a whole party.
