Hello coffee lovers! This month we rounded up a few articles from different coffee magazines if you’re into news about coffee and light reading. It goes fantastically with coffee too, so that’s a plus. We also have a few updates to the site coming up. Free shipping options, FAQ page and a new quiz result page! Read on for more details.
“Learn how to taste” by Caffeine Magazine
Caffeine magazine gives us a few reasons any of us can and should take up coffee tasting.
Uganda 2018 Law Passed
Daily Coffee News reports on Uganda passing legislation to regulate coffee at a farm level.
Coffeetalk Magazine “Behind the Mask 2020”
Scott Strader and Jen Stone take us through how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the coffee industry in the US.
We are planning to implement a free shipping method in the future. By using an envelope made for coffee shipping we can avoid the usual package shipping fee. Exciting! The implementation of this feature gives us an opportunity to redesign the product page. We want to increase clarity in the UI and will group information together and option selectors together. We also want to add product bundles to provide another way to avoid the shipping fee. With this method, it’s on us!
A frequently asked questions section is an integral part of an online shop or really any kind of website that offers a service. It should be the first point of customer service or inquiry. It should be easy to find and navigate and make it easy for customers to find the answers they are looking for. Please tell us of any questions that popped into your head when you used our website! You can give us a question by using the button below.
New Quiz Result Page
Our old quiz result page was a bit limited and seemingly put users at a crossroads to either commit to ordering that coffee, commit to an account to get more recommendations, or retake the quiz. We felt that this pushed away many shy buyers or serial browsers who felt this was limiting. It also became clear that first-time users were not even entirely clear what these options fully entailed. We are currently developing a new quiz result page to cater to many users’ preferred method of shopping and to clarify the actions that are available to take.
Coffee Recipe of the Month
Lemon Cold Brew Coffee
Yes, you read it right, cold brew coffee, with a lemon twist. An unconventional combo to say the least. However, it works for a few reasons, even though in the end, whether you enjoy it or not is subjective. The acidity of the lemon juice complements the underlying acidity and bitterness of the coffee, especially if you’re brewing with a medium roast or lighter. This, together with the cold temperature of the drink and some sugar or syrup make this drink a surprisingly refreshing pick-me-up. We recommend syrup as it is easier to dissolve the sugar into cold liquids this way. It’s really simple, here’s how to make it.
What you’ll need
- cold brew coffee
- mint leaves (optional)
- Get a chilled glass and fill it a third of the way with the cold brew
- Squeeze some fresh lemon juice and add it to the glass
- Add about two tablespoons of syrup and mix it thoroughly
- Top off the glass with some ice, a slice of lemon and some mint leaves.
Until Next Time!
