Have you ever heard about glitter coffee? Well, I'm sure you know that sometimes it’s fun to act like a kid and play with your food or drinks, even though your parents probably told you not to. Edible glitter and food colors are a great and easy way of doing that with coffee. The only thing you need is your imagination and perhaps good music on the background.
Coffee and drinks have more in common than we think. Get inspired and next time mix your coffee with something else than milk, sugar or water.
Coffee books are important source of knowledge and inspiration for baristas. Here is the list of my favorite coffee books and publications that I especially recommend for baristas that are looking for basic knowledge level. These coffee books are the ones, one should start exploring the world of coffee.
Coffee quotes are fun way to express passion towards coffee because sometimes it is difficult to explain why coffee is so important for one another. I collected some of my favorite coffee quotes in this post. Please share yours in the comments!
New Zealand, at the far side of the world, is the furthest place one could travel from Nordics or Baltics. And it really deserves a visit. Top-quality coffee, magnificent wine, excellent food, wondrous nature and its European-like feeling is perfect for a travel and coffee enthusiast.
Scandinavia is well known for its massive coffee consumption culture. We Finns have always been number one in the world, around 10kg of roasted coffee drunk per person per year, but Norwegians, Swedes and Danes are quite close behind with 6-8kg per person per year. Also our Scandinavian food culture is expanding to all around the world and Denmark especially is leading the way.
What is there in the cup, when you wander around Oslo checking out the trendy coffee shops, enjoying a cupping with legendary Tim Wendelboe and visit Kaffikaze, the Norwegian version of Coffee Festival?
When my friend suggested a grand cupping with different coffees, I was all in. Creating a coffee community or coffee events on your own is just a matter of getting people and coffee together.
I visited the city for the first time years ago and totally fell in love with, well, everything. Since I have visited regularly. It's a stunning mixture of history and modern, rough street corners next super posh high street shops and of course interesting coffee scene. Russia has been traditionally more tea then coffee country, and when 94% of people drink tea you could say it still is pretty tea concentrated nation.
