Short shots of coffee:
- Slate Magazine — in a bid to become the paean of consumer reviews — suggests you forget everything you think you know about tea-kettles. (Not a tea-drinker, you? Those self-same kettles are just the thing to fuel your press pot and pour-over cones.) This time Slate’s spot-on, unlike last year’s attempt to “review espresso machines on a level playing field” (good for a giggle, though.)
- Fortune waxes eloquent on the coffees of Batdorf & Bronson’s new Latitudes line. Mayhaps she describes them too well… you, too, may be reaching for your MasterCard before you’ve finished the post.
- Proctor & Gamble’s response to the woman who’s apparently found a turtle in her package of Folgers coffee: “We believe this is an isolated incident.” Cue the music: The best part of wakin’ up… a turtle in your cup.
