No cream, no sugar
Shallow Thought Wednesdays guru John Lindner reports that his eyes have been opened about coffee. And it's not just the caffeine at work. Here's John. LV
Did you know that coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world next to oil?
Neither did I.
Flak alert: the following STW shamelessly promotes a Guatemala-based coffee blogger and, I’m proud to say, colleague of mine.
Until a few months ago, everything I wanted to know about coffee was this: Is it hot? Is it leaded or decaf? Today I know that everything there is to know about coffee could fill a blog – or lots of blogs.
Michael Sheridan lives in Guatemala City. He’s an advocate for coffee farmers. He blogs about growers, coffee production, beans, roasters, industry issues, fair trade, hazards in the coffeelands and he takes nice pictures, too.
I enjoy Michael’s blog because with it he takes me to an unseen world that touches mine only at the very end of a long, sometimes arduous process.
Shallow thought: the only thing I have against caffeine is that it makes it less likely that I’ll die in my sleep.
