Hello coffee lovers! Hope you are well and your love for coffee rages on! For some it may feel like the time for vacation but it is still not recommended and frankly, we’re not taking any chances. However no virus will keep us from enjoying classic summer staples like a Frappé with friends, not too many though, and preferably two meters apart.
This month we continue our explorations into the world of coffee with some interesting tidbits from the web. We also cover some updates to come to the website and introduce a new page to the website. Yay !!
