Hurricane Issac may have ruined my plans for this week (all the coffee survived), but Coffee Krave’s Web Picks of the Week is still on!
Dear Coffee, I Love You has a great overview of the new Able Kone filter. This stainless steel coffee filter can replace the paper filters of the Chemex coffee maker (or any other coffee-brewing apparatus, really), resulting in an oil-rich brew with a much different flavor.
Heading to Seoul soon? FRSHGRND has a great list of the best cafes in Seoul. I visited the city this summer and can personally vouch for Aaron’s list. Be sure to avoid the chains– South Korea is full of them. You should also check out their review of the HG One.
Sprudge has a great post about Stumptown’s new headquarters in Portland. Among the 37,000 square feet of space in the facility, there’s an astounding 10,000 square feet available for green bean storage!
In other news, Mr. Coffee is recalling more than 600,000 single-cup coffee makers after 60 individuals were burned by spewing steam and coffee grounds. Just another reason why I’m sticking to my Aeropress.
