On Coffee Writing

February 28th, 2014

Let’s be clear. I know all about lazy journalism. As a journalist for more than a decade, as well as a book author and publisher, I have been on both sides of lazy journalism many, many times. Someone needs a quote from me this afternoon because they kinda spaced on their deadline? Sure, I understand. […]

Oh, hello there. I’ll be teaching a how-to-home-brew coffee class again at the esteemed Brooklyn Kitchen this coming Sunday, March 4, at 2:00pm. You should sign up for a slot, because it’s fun to go to the Brooklyn Kitchen, and even more fun to taste delicious coffees compared across various brew methods (we’ll try Clever, […]

An evening of snow into a morning of blooming crocuses and noon hardly ever felt so early (again, I’ll blame climate change here) as we roll in to the NERBC finals after a 28-day, three-state romp through one of the crowdedest rooms in Manhattan. It had been a little while since I attended a barista […]

September 8th, 2010

I nearly forgot to mention that I’ve started blogging about the New York Coffee world over here at Serious Eats New York, a lovely website that you should only visit if you’re prepared to be jealous and hungry.

June 29th, 2009

If you like that sort of thing, tune into the Brian Lehrer show on on local NPR affiliate WNYC on Tuesday, June 30 at 10:40 EST to hear me talk about the state of the NYC coffee scene, related loosely to what’s covered in this recent article. Hopefully the questions will be really easy, like […]

spring successfully flung

June 8th, 2009

It was incredibly thoughtful of Spuyten Duyvil to double the capacity of their gorgeous back garden for our New York City Coffee People Spring Fling, the fourth installment of a very informal (meaning I only got half a beer spilled on me, and it was my fault) gathering of All The Coffee People In New […]

I interviewed the three owners of Southside Coffee: Josh Sidis, Ben Jones, and Ramin Narimani, for a forthcoming article in Edible Brooklyn earlier this month. It was more like interviewing a band than interviewing coffee shop owners, and captured the um, sensibility, of this special south Park Slope establishment. When I go to Southside, I […]

the race is on

March 21st, 2009

View Larger Map With this week’s flip by Ninth Street Espresso from using Stumptown Coffee (blue pins) to Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters and Tea Traders (red pins), the infiltration of heavy outside forces into NYC’s coffee scene is raging harder than ever. (Hey, remember those four months when the only coffee for sale anywhere was from […]
