Gimme a Coffee Blogging Break

Let’s call a spade a spade.  I’ve been a bad blogger and my own attempts at self-reform have apparently failed miserably.  My lack of writing is not due to a lack of coffee consumption or travel.  I have a sizable backlog of posts, dating back well over a year, which include some pretty high-profile, […]

A Simple Thanks

When I wrote my last blog post, I intended to write another very soon.  I only wish I was writing a normal review now, or at the very least, had some witty way to write about an otherwise lame excuse for not writing.  The last few weeks, however, have found my house with little humor […]

The Fourth Year’s a Charm

There is a time each year when one stops to pause and reflect on beginnings, major milestones, transitions and one’s inevitable plodding forward into the future.  Another year older, another year with fewer brain cells my grandfather used to say.  At least I think that’s what he said.  It seems I can no longer […]

Looking for D.C. Area Coffee?

Having visited only two cafes in the greater Washington, D.C. area, I’m hardly in a place to dispense with anything but hasty generalizations about the D.C. coffee scene. If I did have to dabble in such fallacies, however, I’d comment on the fact that coffee in D.C., like much of the rest of the country, […]

Reports of My Decaffeination…

When I posted last, the World Cup hadn’t yet begun. Since that time, the U.S., despite a valiant effort, has dropped out. But that loss didn’t stop the U.S. from winning another world sporting competition. Earlier this month, Intelligentsia’s Michael Phillips became the first American to win the World Barista Champion. If you’ve managed to […]

(Quasi) Live Updates from SCAA 2010

I tend to like to save twitter for more pithy items and this blog for more substantive ones. While I do plan on using both to report back on my trip to SCAA 2010, I wanted to add another tool to the arsenal. You can link over to, where I’ll attempt to create a […]

Papa’s Got a Brand New Blog

Welcome to post 200. Welcome to the third year of Man Seeking Coffee. Welcome to the new blog.

If you are a regular reader, I’m glad to see you found your way here. If you’re a new reader, then welcome.

Before any of us get too excited about the new blog, I should point out […]

Man Seeking Coffee 2.0

Trick or…Coffee?

Halloween activities most typically involve costumes, collecting candy or cavorting in the Castro (or the location du jour), but I, unintentionally, managed to associate Halloween with the anniversary of this blog. That’s right. I started writing Man Seeking Coffee two years ago on October 31, 2007. So I’ll start this post by […]
