If I didn't already have a Technivorm, I'd probably buy it.

Fresh new content at CoffeeGeek, and an important read: "Remembering Coffee Kids"; a look back from the future to a past we hope won't happen. A must read.
The following is a " what if" written by the recent (and retired) Coffee Kids board president, Mike Ferguson. This is not reality, but it could be if the specialty coffee industry and coffee enthusiast consumers like you don't continue to support this fantastic organization. June 19, 2038 ...

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.

Slight Change at CoffeeGeek

In the coming weeks, we're going to doing a slight change in our editorial policy at CoffeeGeek.com

Since the birth of the website in 2001, I have been adamant about our editorial policy at CoffeeGeek: It simply cannot be bought. Vendors, "partners", "friends" of the website will not get favourable press on our website just because they advertise with us. If they do seriously good products or services, and the reporting on those products and.or services is newsworthy, we'll report it. But if the company has issues or has a lackluster product, we'll report on that too.

Basically, a core foundation of CoffeeGeek is that our editorial direction and focus will be not be influenced in any way positive or negative by who advertises with us. Your trust in what we cover and how we run the website is one of the most valuable things we have at CoffeeGeek, and we would do nothing to change that. Far too many influencer websites, from technology websites, to photography and audio websites, and yes, even to coffee websites are playing this game with your trust, and it's not a game we'll ever play.

Sponsored Content
That said, I've been mulling a decision for a few months now. I have in the works some fantastic educational content for CoffeeGeek and I have people willing to do world class photography and writing for that content. I want to make sure they are compensated well for their work, but because CoffeeGeek has never been about making us rich -- we won't get rich if we don't pander to advertisers more -- we've had to come up with a creative way to pay for that content.

What I've come up with is this - we will find some sponsors for selective content on CoffeeGeek - but there must be absolutely no possibility you the reader will think that sponsor in any way influenced the content.

This means cherry picking a sponsor who doesn't have any direct skin in the game, as it were. If we're demonstrating grinder cleaning techniques, we wouldn't choose Baratza, for example. If we're demonstrating a how to on espresso shot pulls, we wouldn't pick Rancilio or Breville.

We also have to be very careful about what kind of content we want to have sponsored. I don't want any 100% editorial/news/opinion/reviews content to ever be sponsored. We did this once in a past (for a European trip we needed to finance) and I don't think I want to do that again (though I'll never say never for exceptional circumstances).

So if our news, opinion and reviews content is a no-fly zone for any kind of sponsorship, that leaves us with our educational content. I've agonized over this, and have come to a decision to try it on a trial basis. 

We have three new how tos lined up by a fantastic photographer and barista trainer. And these three how-tos will be sponsored by a fantastic company. I can guarantee you that the sponsor has no influence or editorial control at all over the how tos, and that our contributors are going to be well compensated for their work. 

I hope you enjoy the forthcoming content, and I'd like to express my appreciation to this content sponsor for working within our tight ethical boundaries.
