Coffee beans from African countries are my favourite. What triggered me when I first tried African coffee beans, was that the coffee did not taste like coffee at all.

All in all, African coffee beans are packed with taste! I encourage everyone to start exploring and enjoying African coffees because of their wide taste profile.

Coffee is a lifestyle and one way to showcase the love for coffee is coffee tattoos.

I had a cup of coffee with few coffee people who have inked coffee graphics on their skin and asked them to share the stories behind their coffee tattoos.
In Lithuania, we can be proud to have many professional baristas. One of them, Laurynas Arlauskas, is the winner of 2016 and 2017 Lithuanian Barista Championship.
