    One of the perks of my job is getting to dive into our client’s businesses during the course of our work with them. I love our Discovery Process where we lead the clients through really fun exercises that lead to deep insights about their industry and their brand. In the process, our team gets to learn details about another industry from the inside out. A favorite client of ours has been Farm Credit of Florida. It turns out that the Farm Credit system was established by the government back in 1916 to provide stability and financing to the agricultural industry. Nearing 100 now, Farm…

I was excited to go, since I was last in Nicaragua in 2007 while working with Equal Exchange, a fair trade coffee, tea and chocolate company. While that learning trip was all too short, I was still strongly impacted. It’s one thing to talk about collaboration and improving livelihoods, but a whole other thing to meet first-hand the farmers producing coffee that my company imported, roasted, and that I promoted in my job.

    It’s a sausage. And a croissant. Rolled together into one... Yum. Some of you have already discovered this tasty roll.  Others have been telling us how much you want more savory options, like SunnyV.   This savory delight is made with a buttery, flaky croissant, smoked beef sausage, béchamel sauce, Swiss cheese, and is a good source of protein. It is the ultimate savory snack/breakfast/lunch/all three. So next time you’re getting a little “hangry”, stop, take a deep breath, and eat a sausage croissant roll. And then smile. :) Thanks for…

    We are nearing the end of September, and it already feels like seven years have passed. How’s that even possible? The concept of time, or lack thereof, has always bewildered me. One day it can feel like the hours just aren’t going fast enough, and then next thing you know it’s been 3 years and you’re not sure how you spent so much time willingly going down a road, knowing you made a wrong turn somewhere. That’s precisely what September has come down to: making road choices. I much rather be dancing away, drinking some wine, and chatting it up with my…

    “Over 40 tons of coffee grounds are thrown out every week from downtown Chicago alone” says Ed Hubbard, professional worm farmer at Nature’s Little Recyclers. All that waste is too bad, because his worms would love to feast on the spent coffee grounds, as well as the coffee filters, coffee chaff and paper coffee cups. In return they make a rich fertile compost that Hubbard calls “caviar compost” for gardens and farms.Hubbard's flock includes over a million worms (that’s over 1,000 pounds!) and he works with several local coffee companies such as Dark Matter and Intelligentsia to…

    I came across this speech by John W. Gardner today. I don’t often get stopped in my tracks by speeches from nearly 25 years ago, but when Harvard Business Review posted an article on lifelong learning, my curiosity was piqued. I was rewarded by this beautiful speech that inspired me to live with purpose, meaning and interest.

  • Vendor or Partner?

    Marla Saunders
    27 Jun 2014 | 6:36 am
    I read a great article on Agency Post today about seeing yourself as a partner in your client’s business, rather than as a vendor. Partners are fully vested in the business, will put in the extra hours needed to let it succeed, and will allow their minds to dwell on creative options to solve everyday challenges. Partners will have “Eureka!” moments in the shower. Vendors, on the other hand, do not. They provide a service or an engagement and walk away. Our companies have always approached clients as partners without actually using those terms. That focus on learning a new…

  • Benefits of a Coffee Machine with a Temperature Control System (TCS)

    Casa Espresso
    8 Jul 2014 | 2:09 am
    Espresso is normally brewed with water at a temperature range of somewhere between 88 to 95 degrees. A coffee machine that offers the barista control over water temperature is vital for difficult coffees, such as single origins and lighter roasts, but equally as important is the machines ability to stabilise the temperature. Skilled baristas keen to produce consistent tasting drinks will try to mitigate these effects that unstable brewing temperatures may have, but due to the variability in coffee extraction, no barista can tell exactly what the temperature is within the group head. To aid…

  • From Bean to Cup – How Coffee is Harvested and Processed

    James
    17 Jul 2014 | 7:01 am
    As I’m sure you all know coffee beans come from the coffee (coffea) plant. However, you may not know that they’re not actually beans. Beans technically can only come from Legumes. Coffee beans, like cocoa beans, simply get their name because they look like true beans. However, they do share a similarity other than appearance, both true beans and coffee (and cocoa beans) are seeds. Coffee plants grow fruit know as cherries and it’s within these cherries that we find the beans. Usually a cherry will contain two beans, grown flat against each other like two halves of a peanut, although…

Now its time to learn how to steam milk, so you can then make drinks like: cappuccinos, lattes, flat whites and macchiatos. For the budding home barista, frothing milk is actually quite hard.

  • Why Does the Coffee from my Moka Pot Taste Burnt and Bitter?

    James

    Many professionals in the coffee industry frown upon the Italian classic stove-top espresso maker (often called a Moka pot), claiming it makes burnt and bitter tasting coffee. So much so, that there aren’t many speciality retailers out there who sell them. However, I’ve always believed that using the right techniques, Moka pots can produce a really tasty coffee, with a rich body and flavour (espresso-styled but not espresso). And because their cheap compared to an espresso machine, take up little room and are simple to use, they make an excellent alternative. Awesome Moka Pot Video So I…

I keep the plant inside and water it once a week or so, whenever the soil is dry about an inch or so down. When I water it I give it a pretty good soak. I probably pour 1 to 1.5 cups of water into the soil. It sits on a table near our kitchen where it gets plenty of indirect sunlight. Basically, this mimics the shade that most coffee plants historically preferred. In the wild coffee usually grows under the canopy of much larger trees. Unfortunately, I didn't…

    Beans roasted for espresso in particular are roasted longer than regular beans so that the oils in the beans are brought to the surface. All these attributes add to the taste of your espresso drink. Espresso is a coffee that is made by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground and compacted coffee beans. Beans can be of different origins or roasted at different levels, using different methods and still produce authentic espresso. Espresso is the base for many other drinks such as café latte, cappuccino or café mocha. A fresh cup of espresso drink…
