The staff at CoffeeKrave hopes you’re getting through the week in one piece. Here’s a quick look at what we’ve been reading.


Say Yes to the Coffee, No to Sugar

According to UCLA researchers, sugar isn’t good for maintaining a sharp mind. On the other hand, coffee has been shown to reduce mortality.


Just Not Hot Enough

Like it hot? Then stay away from the Black & Decker 8-cup programmable coffee maker. Daily Shot of Coffee reports that although this drip coffee maker is affordable and easy to use, it just doesn’t brew hot enough. This is a problem with many coffee makers found at big box retailers.


The Perfect Home Espresso Machine

Looking for a good home espresso machine? The classic Rancilio Silvia can’t be beat. Read two old but highly relevant guides to the machine here and here.


These Times They Are A-Changin’

You don’t have to be Bob Dylan to feel a change comin’ on. You might think you’ve mastered the perfect brew method, but as Coffee Adventures points out, it never hurts to reevaluate and try something new.


Espresso Reviewed

Coffeestork recently reviewed Square Mile Red Brick Espresso. The blend is well-balanced with hints of fruit at first, but leads to a body of “caramel buttery creaminess” with notes of chocolate and molasses.
