A look at the history of consumer grinders and the potentially game changing Baratza Sette grinder.
About 10 months ago, just after last year's SCAA show, I was having a beverage with Kyle Anderson, co-owner and head engineer of Baratza. We were talking, as usual, about grinders, the state of grinders, and what the specialty coffee world wanted from a grinder. I rattled off my usual list of ...

Know about coffee and can write well? Read this!
 
Do you know a lot about coffee and espresso? Have some opinions on where coffee should be going? Do you know how to interview people in the world of coffee with insight and purpose? Do you train or teach things about coffee and espresso?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, and you are a good writer, capable of meeting deadlines, there are several paid writing gigs coming up soon and you could be a good fit.

If you are interested, please reply to this post, or message me +Mark P. via Google+ for more details.

I got a rather lovely email today from a program CoffeeGeek helped fund last year with the raising of almost $15,000 for our last Coffee Kids fundraiser. The program is Las Nubes, an afterschool program in Guatemala. We, along with Peets Coffee, helped fully fund the program for 2 years.

Because Coffee Kids (the old one; a new version of Coffee Kids has been reborn, but I have to learn more about it) closed down in January 2015, funding for the future of the Las Nubes program is in doubt; they don't currently have a 501.c3 registered sponsor NGO in the US to work with them. I've been working some back channels to see if we can find them a suitable partner and continue the fundraising for them going forward in 2016 and 2017 and beyond.

But we were able to secure the program's viability for 2015 and now through 2016. And I got an amazing email from them today that had these two lovely images.

Fresh new content is up at CoffeeGeek!
Inspired (sort of) by some questionable myth busting in an espresso education series online, we tackle some real, genuine espresso myths, including caffeine levels, bold coffee and more!
Late last year, ChefSteps put out an educational series on making espresso in the home. The series was done in conjunction with the folks at La Marzocco Home. It's a good series of educational videos on making espresso and the things that surround it, but I had two criticisms of the videos, ...

I don't do a lot of web marketing for CoffeeGeek's Instagram presence - www.instagram.com/coffeegeek - (it's not even linked to on CoffeeGeek.com!), but somehow it's amassed 5,000 faithful followers!

Because of this and as a way to thank everyone for enjoying the photos I post there, I've teamed up with Espro (www.espro.ca) to give a free Espro press, in any size (small, medium, large, or the new travel size - check them out!) to one lucky CoffeeGeek Instagram follower, no matter where they are in the world!

There is a catch, albeit a minor set. 
1. You must be a follower of my Instragram account (www.instagram.com/coffeegeek) - naturally! :D
2. To be entered in the contest to win, you must post, to your own Instagram account, a photo depicting your special coffee moment of the day, and you must use the hashtag #CGCoffeeMoment  

One entry per person will be counted, though if you want to post a dozen #CGCoffeeMoments  that'd be awesome too. The contest will run for one week, ending on August 23, 2015, and I'll announce the winner via Instagram on August 24. That person will have 48 hours to respond and get their details to me; if they don't, I'll randomly pick someone else and go through the process again until we have a winner!

This contest is open to everyone around the world. I'll be personally shipping off your prize once you tell me what Espro Press you'd prefer.
