Legit Coffee

The quest for enlightenment through coffee.

JaKeEveryone knows that coffee comes from beans. But how many times have you asked yourself where the beans come from? There are crazed coffee wizards who will tell you that beans from different places have distinct flavors and personalities. In fact, we will be discussing that very thing quite soon. Let’s not get too psycho-analytical over the poor coffee beans just yet, though.

(After all, sometimes a “child sized white chocolate mocha frappuccino light blended coffee with an extra shot of espresso, one pump of sugar free raspberry flavoring, and no whipped cream on top” is just a “child sized white chocolate mocha frappuccino light blended coffee with an extra shot of espresso, one pump of sugar free raspberry flavoring, and no whipped cream on top”, Dr. Freud!)

Just like people, the regions coffees come from have a significant impact on how they turn out. What better way to get to know those beans than to study up on where they came from.

The roasters and coffee shamans of Stumptown Coffee have given us a great boon in this endeavor by putting together amazing vignettes about the far off lands where they get their beans and how coffee builds the culture of those areas. So far, they have videos from Kenya and Colombia, with more on the way. Why not take some time and get educated while you enjoy your next cup? It is, afterall, the best way to become a great cupper. (No, that was NOT a Freudian sip!)
