  1. Finally visited Kaffeine in Great Titchfield Street this week. Brilliant place! Great, great coffee, very friendly and a good place to hang. Excellent - it has even overtaken Monmouth as my new favourite. I wrote a little review of Kaffeine here: http://philwbass.posterous.com/kaffeine-coffee-bar-london-0 I had less favourable experiences on my two visits to Taylor Street Baristas in Richmond, very disappointing given what I'd heard. Another great recent find though is the Espresso Room opposite Great Ormond Street hospital. The full London coffee review (so far) appears on my blog here: http://philwbass.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/in-search-of-a-good-cappuccino/ Other recommendations are welcomed!

  6. Hi Everyone, I am looking for a bit of assistance if you would be kind enough to spare a few minutes? I recently started a Blog to look at the UK Coffee scene and its culture and to try and be a bit different with my articles by taking to the founders/owners to find out what makes them unique. my first article in this style can be found at: http://beanabout.co.uk/2015/03/10/bogota-coffee-co-milton-keynes/ and the home page at http://beanabout.co.uk I was wondering if you guys would be nice enough to have a read or look over and give me your honest thoughts on what you think with regards to the content, design, direction etc. I appreciate your help Thanks Matt (Mod's I have checked with Glenn and have his approval)
  7. Hello everyone! My name's Max and I work selling coffee machines and coffee gadgets like V60's, Chemex, grinders, syphons, moka pots etc. I recently just restarted my coffee blog www.northernbrewblog.wordpress.com and I'm looking for people that would like to collaborate to post things. Anything at all would be greatly appreciated whether it's a recipe, a review of a product or machine, a coffee shop review or just a general article about something coffee themed. Thanks a lot guys and gals
  8. Hi guys, (admin please move/delete if not appropriate) Shamelessly plugging my first article on the Perfect Daily Grind website, good for you aeropressers out there. http://www.perfectdailygrind.com/2015/03/how-to-make-an-aeropress-iced-latte-2/ Sam
  9. Hi there, I'm looking for a writer who loves coffee and is looking for writing opportunities. We have a coffee blog for which we need contributors who could write on regular (weekly) basis. Stan
  10. Unashamedly, I have cut and pasted this blog, from Reiss Gunsons blog page on the londinium website. I read this every day as when he is not promoting the machines, you often get pearls of wisdom, and this explains a lot! L1 - user tip: it's all about distribution if you've ground too fine and made a lousy job of the distribution of the coffee grinds in the basket what you will experience is the portafilter dripping almost instantly in the pre-infusion phase, and then when you release the spring, the extraction phase taking way too long when you are 'doing it right' the portafilter won't drip for at least 10 seconds in the pre-infusion phase (longer with a light roast and/or a high dose), yet the extraction phase will still be in that 27-30s zone what is distribution? well even the very best grinders in the the world, regardless of cost, don't grind the coffee to a uniform size and shape as a result you need to ensure that the 'mix' of slightly different shaped and sized grinds is about the same throughout the puck so give the coffee grinds a vigourous stir with a cocktail fork or anything similar that you have to hand for example, you dont want all the smallest grinds in one part of the puck and all the largest grinds in another part of the puck if this occurs the resistance presented to the water is not uniform over the surface of the puck and so the water heads for the spot where the resistance is least, and that is what is known as 'channelling'. The bulk of the water flows through a single point in the puck at low pressure resulting in an under-extracted espresso, which will taste poor bear in mind that channelling varies greatly from severe (water just gushes through a single point in the puck extremely quickly - obvious) to almost undetectable (less water flowing through some areas of the puck than others, but water still moving through all areas of the puck) when you make an effort to get an even distribution of the grinds of different shapes & sizes throughout the puck you will be able to grind coarser, yet the puck will still hold back the water for a long time in the pre-infusion phase the payoff is the extraction phase will then reduce to the 27-30s zone and you will experience whatever roast you are using at its best rightly or wrongly i believe that the optimal extraction time is the same for all roasts (around 27s), but the pre-infusion phase needs to be varied (short for low doses &/or dark roasts - long for high doses &/or light roasts) if your extraction phase is currently significantly longer than 30s you will be tasting a woodiness, much like sucking on a pencil as i remember from school days improve your distribution so it doesn't drip immediately, then you can grinder more coarsely and your extraction time will reduce and the unpleasant woodiness will disappear and your espresso will suddenly taste a lot cleaner. If the roast is meant to have fruit notes in it they will suddenly appear too as you get the extraction time down so go on, make an effort to get the distribution right & taste the difference immediately Reiss Gunson 2013 Mar

  12. Hi everyone! I'm a coffee blogger from Devon and I'm excited to start sharing and discussing coffee making tips with everyone. Making coffee at home is a big hobby of mine and I recently started a website to share some of things I've learned so far. Feel free to check it out, hopefully you'll find some useful information https://www.homecoffeetips.com/ My current setup: Delonghi Dedica Espresso Machine (however I'm looking to upgrade to a Gaggia Classic Pro soon) Sage/Breville Smart Grinder Pro Thanks for reading and I look forward to chatting on future posts! Thanks, Ben
  13. So it's nearly time to fit out the inside of my van, ages ago I found a thread where the person went through their build bit by bit as they did it. It was like a blog. Loads of info on there and now I can't find it. It was quite long. Anyone know what I'm talking about !! TIA
  14. Hey guys! I'm not really new here, but it's been so damn long since I posted here that I may as well be! My name's Seamus (or Chris, I go by both), and I've been a barista since '07. I've meandered through the industry up here in the North and have found myself helping to set up, and now to run, a dedicated filter bar on Newcastle's Quayside. We operate on the first floor of a design shop called Whosit and Whatsit, and it's the first coffee job I've had in years where I've been genuinely excited to go to work. Aside from work, I used to run a blog called Third Wave UK, which unfortunately petered out as my passion waned. Now, my passion has matured, my perspective changed and my experience shaped me, so I have set up a new blog; Forty Six Coffee. The idea is to move into YouTube and Instagram video before the end of September/start of October! Anyway, it's lovely to be back, and I really look forward to getting to know you all! Any questions, I'm more than happy to help where I can! Cheers, Seamus.
  15. Hello everyone I am new to the forum and have recently started my own coffee review blog/twitter/other social media etc. I am currently trying to get it off the ground and would greatly appreciate any help and or feedback. Thanks again! Link: http://ukcoffeereview.tumblr.com
  16. I have decided that trying to come up with new blog posts is to much of a struggle so I'm opening up the doors for authors! Read the latest post for details! (still waiting for Glenn to post....ahem) If you'd like to write about a particular coffee subject then drop me an email and I'll give you author permissions. Anthing coffee related is fine. I'd really love to have something from the home barista too. Kind regards Lee

    Hey everyone! What blogs do you all follow related to coffee? Do you write one yourself? I wouldn't mind starting to follow some myself. thanks in advance.
  18. Don't see that anyone's mentioned it, but coffee author and educator Scott Rao has recently started his own blog spot, Where is Scott Rao?
  19. Hi All, I have started a new coffee blog! http://baristauk.wordpress.com/ I'm no Jim Hoffman when it comes to blogging but hopefully it will be somethng to interest anyone with an interest in coffee! Cheers Lee
  20. Hi all This is an interesting blog that has been shown to me. http://www.cafe-ita.co.uk/farm-journal/2008/10/14/is-fairtrade-really-fair.html It discusses some issues and shortcomings with Fairtrade. We stock some Fairtrade but don't make it the be all and end all of our menu, much to the annoyance of our local Fairtrade lobby.
  21. Alright, I just quit the coffee biz to work from home and write and finish school, but to cope with my coffee-making withdrawals I've started a barista blog, just to talk coffee. It's the next best thing to actually being behind the espresso machine cranking out gorgeous cappuccinos and lattes all morning. Anyway, it's coming along nicely, but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas, what people would be actually interested in hearing about on a coffee blog? So far, I've got a few informative posts about the uses of coffee grinds, or green coffee bean supplements, etc. and then I've got a few sort of personal posts which are just me rambling about my life, and then I've got a bunch of posts about coffee-inspired artistic masterpieces. Cultural impact of coffee, and Starbucks, and Starbucks fanatics, and I'm also working on a piece about Fair Trade, and what that really means, and the efforts of Equator Coffee to improve life for rural coffee growers, etc. Anyway... Check it out, let me know if you like it, and any ideas you might have that I could use for a post? http://baristabanterblog.blogspot.com/
  22.
