How much can one person write about coffee? Way too much, if you ask me. After all, there is news from months-old business deals still making waves, staff changes between cafes with real implications for their identity, big deal coffee competitions coming to American shores, rumors on the opening (1,2) of places serving good coffee and closings (1,2) of those that don’t, and funny little tidbits that are, at the very least, amusing. The biggest challenge I have is staying focused, keeping it all within the framework of a review.
Sometimes, however, situations come along that are too good to keep quiet about and can’t be squeezed easily into a review. It’s coffee news that screams out for coffee commentary. For that reason, I’m starting a new segment on Man Seeking Coffee – The Scoop – where I can post on coffee things that don’t quite fit the current format: news, rumors, clips and bits are all fair game, and so, of course, is my opinion. Of course, the goal will still be to keep this information relevant to finding good coffee wherever it can be found. I’ll also try to keep it timely.
The first scoop is on the way. Please, stay tuned.
