BitterBliss 2015

Is it too early for New Year’s resolutions? How about a general plan? Over the last couple of months have found repeated opportunities to talk to many people about what I want to do with the BitterBliss website in 2015, so I thought it would make a decent post here. While it should be apparent that I am currently trying to get more engaged with the coffee community by volunteering…

Challenge #11: Eat some coffee

Drinking coffee? That’s far too easy…. How about we eat some? While coming through university (and yes, that was a few years ago) my favourite snack was chocolate covered coffee beans.

Orphan Espresso Lido 2 Manual Coffee Grinder

With a base made out of thick glass, and the grinder itself broken into a solid glass hopper and all metal drive train, not to mention the metal burs and steel rings for the grinder settings, this is not something that you want to drop or have thrown at you. The positive side of…

Sydney Trains Coffee Map

As a challenge to myself I decided to find a great cafe for every single train station along the Sydney trains network. The result of that was a map.... which as a pure image I found less than useful.... but as an app.... well that's a different story. This app (for iPhone and Android) lists 186 cafes that I recommend all over Sydney. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee, you can support my efforts and perhaps convince me to do an expanded one for all of Sydney (not just the train network).
