Coffee time

I think I’m going to start blogging about some good places to have a coffee.  Mostly I just write about fairly boring niche programming subjects, so it’s a slight  change for me.  But lately I’ve been regularly drinking lots of really good coffee.  I also like to photograph my coffee (as evinced by my little collage above), so it gives me somewhere to post that photos (other than to my continual photostream on Flickr).  Indeed coffee is probably my 2nd or 3rd most commonly photographed subject, after graffiti.

I recently picked up a copy of The London Coffee Guide (2012 edition, not the 2013 edition which came out about a month ago).  Of the 100 places featured there, I’ve only been to about 15 of them.  So that gives me some ideas for new places to try.  Although I’ve also been to lots of great coffee shops they haven’t got listed.  And I’ve drank coffee in other places outside of London too!  (I even started a Google Map of coffee shops, see below)

As you can probably tell from my photo, I’m a fan of a milky coffee, lattes/cappuccinos/flat whites; I never have an espresso or macchiato.  I’m not really much of a connoisseur or know much of the technical ins and outs of making coffee, but hopefully that won’t matter too much.

  2. Welcome to the world of Coffee Blogging. Your reasons for starting blogging about coffee shops are pretty similar to mine… Be careful, though, or it will take over your life!
