Thanks to everyone who has read, re-tweeted, blogged about any post Bean Brewding has published. We started out with modest goals and expectations. Your support has led to 5000 views in just over 4 months. That was a major milestone and is, for us, pretty exciting. We couldn’t have done it without you! Special thanks to all the wonderful people in coffee shops in Brisbane and Byron Bay who have shared their passion and knowledge and who strive to bring us great coffee experiences.
We are often asked about the ‘bean’ score. In short, it is based on a range of factors including the coffee, the service, the passion, the range of coffee options, in-house roasting, the chats … and so on. The focus is the whole experience – it seems all those things manifest in how much we enjoy the cup itself. It’s a bit like wine – you go out have a great meal, enjoy great company, have great banter and for some reason the wine always seems to be more enjoyable than drinking it alone.
So here are some of the pure ‘coffee’ highlights from the past few months – it was a tough process to arrive at the list below … I think we are still debating! There is one thing we are sure of and that is the overall experience had a strong influence on the ‘coffee’ choices! Here we go:
