EP 11: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

When you think of manual brew, what do you imagine first? A dripper/pour over put on top of a cup would probably come to mind. This palakape didn’t have one of those yet till the recent Christmas season. In this episode, he’s testing out…

EP 10: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

So we are adding a few more episodes in this mini series as there are a couple of coffee brewers that aren’t featured. And with the timing comes a couple of possible interruptions, like the twins in this case! 😀 In this episode, the…

EP 9: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

EP 4: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings
