Video and review of the Coffee Catcher for your French press

After my recent post about the Coffee Catcher, a kitchen gadget designed to speed up your cleaning of your French press coffee press pot, the people from Kaffeologie, who make the Coffee Catcher, contacted me to see if I wanted to try one out.  Since I’m an avid French press brewer, and I’m always up […]

Coffeehouses: the googlemaps of culture

To claim that coffeehouses are a center for American culture has become quite the cliché. Consider our 417 shops. Walk into Rendezvous or Hebrews, do you not see Christ-centered Capitalists at table after table? Go to Starbucks, are you not surrounded by either yuppies clad in Coach and ordering up purified art, or the modern-day […]

In mechanics, we learn to control systems through automation. The idea is to control all variables for a consistent desired outcome.  […]

Comfort Drink

This morning I got rejected from two of the nine graduate programs I applied to. One, I fully expected, being one of the most competitive programs in creative writing in the country. The other, well, let’s just say my head got a little big for my britches (I’m not even using puns right at this […]

Latte art from Kevin at Hebrews Coffee

This latte art was created by Kevin Roy of Hebrews Coffee in Springfield, Missouri on top of today’s Turtle Latte in a to go cup. Apparently, they have an internal latte art competiton weekly at Hebrews for tip money. Maybe it’s time to open that up and have a more public latte art competition of […]
