Why Not? Interviews with your BGA Candidates


Hello, from the abyss I call work! For those of you that still happen to read this website, thanks for sticking with us. Fun and great thins are happening in Seattle and I’d much rather be on the ground working and meeting people than posting my thoughts online. It’s that time of year to be […]

Touche, La Tache!


Tasting notes, for many in wine, are a sort of bane. Being able to describe wine in detail is a non-negotiable part of the culture. It is also, in many respects, a completely impractical, impossible, purely subjective art form. (Peppers? Really, are you sure you taste peppers in that? It’s wine. ) Vinters try to catch consumer attention […]

AeroShot: from the makers of Le Whif and Aladdin


That’s right. You’ve heard of the AeroPress…and now there’s an AeroShot- a breathable food, or “cloud,” of a shot of espresso. The makers of Le Whif- breathable chocolate, and Aladdin- your own way to combine food “clouds” have announced the AeroShot, and you can bet your sweet ass that we have a few on their way […]

Tougo Coffee Subscriptions!


THIS JUST IN:   So! Tougo Coffee Company just released that they’re starting coffee subscriptions! At first I was confused, and after talking to owner/operator Brian Wells he explained to me that it just made more sense- there are people who would rather purchase from Tougo then the roasters themselves and with some of Tougo’s […]

tehCoffee(.com) that is. I heard about TehCoffee from the Dan Baumfeld a while back when he was still in Beta-versions. I’ve been watching TehCoffee grow over the past few months and  thought I should share it with ya’ll. Teh is about more than helping you find the closest coffee shop near you, it’s to help […]

Barista Series: Tilting the Balance


Before I get too much into the discussion I want to state my background and briefly touch on my goals for the Barista profession. Being a Barista, in this case a “B” because I’m referring to the highest level of the profession, is far more multifaceted than being able to make coffee. To be honest, […]

Crafty.


A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said “I love your pictures – there’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.” He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: “That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.” -Sam Haskins- In general, […]

Celebrewties, Startenders, and Barista Competitions


Here I sit at Victrola Coffee on 15th Ave in Capital Hill, it’s 7 am in the morning and I haven’t gone home yet since closing the bar. Huzzah. I had a lengthy conversation with the other bartender tonight about why each of us does what we do for a living. I feel I need […]
