Friday, October 17, 2014

Most of us love a good cup of coffee – but some more so than others!


Indeed, dig a little a deeper on the web and, amidst all the pictures of cats, bacon and Kim Kardashian, you’ll stumble across a number of blogs dedicated exclusively – and tirelessly – to  the world’s favourite caffeinated beverage.

These dedicated few live and breathe (and obviously drink copious amounts of) coffee, filling their little space on the internet with everyday ramblings, videos, musings, pictures, facts and figures, stories, opinions, jokes… all regarding their passion for coffee.


The following six blogs are some of the most interesting which we here at Cafe2U HQ have been reading for a while now.


So sit down, pour yourself a cuppa, have a read, follow everyone on Twitter, share the love, and let us know if we’ve missed any other blogs off the list!
