Coffee Buzz on NPR

Coffee170

The Coffee Buzz show featured on NPR recently has some interesting tidbits on current coffee trends. We really enjoyed getting the low down on coffees that aren't uber dark and chunky. Many of the coffees tasted on the show were on the lighter side and sounded like they tasted amazing and different. We're going to be tracking down some of the blends to try in our Gaggia Baby D, Perfect Pod Maker, and Keurig reuseable filter. There's also a full list of coffees tasted on the NPR web site.

Once upon a time, Americans chugged 30 cent cups of coffee or whipped up the Folger's at home and kept on moving. Then came the "coffee culture," and biggest of all Starbucks. Now, Starbucks is moving toward 40,000 outlets and drive-thru ubiquity.

And the buzz on coffee is moving, again. Aficionados are talking like wine lovers. Treating beans like grapes and plantations like vineyards. Talking about a coffee's "notes of maple syrup" or "hint of peaches and pecan." We're curious.
