A few great videos

Those of you who read regularily James Hoffman's Jimseven may have seen at least a few of these videos. This first one made me want to go to California...

This syphon/vacuum brewer seems so interesting that I'm seriously thinking of buying one. I've never tasted but I'd really love to. Does anyone living in Helsinki have one?

These guys (and a girl also?) must have been very high becuase of all that caffeine. I guess I'm going to do the same thing when I'm (hopefully) going to London in June.

Hario's V60 pour-over is so great. I don't own one yet but Kaffa will get them for sale, hopefully soon. I think this is quite good example of a V60 video. The difficulty with pour-over is that you need a pouring kettle, without one it's really hard to brew great with it.

I just love those Intelligentsia's videos. Pure deliciousness. If I ever go to California I'm going to make sure that I'll visit that place.

New year, new posts.

So sorry about the gap since the last post. My New Year's promise here will be that I'll write a new post once a week.

Kaffa's new roastery and espresso bar is the best thing for Helsinki's coffee scene since La Torre, though you can't really compare them (at Kaffa every espresso is drinkable). The other great thing about it is that now Kaffa pays me for working them! No more ten-hour-days for "coffee-wage". Mostly I'll be doing some boring things Benjamin and Svante won't bother doing themselves (I would do the same if I owned a cafe), but sometimes I get to work in the bar also! So come and check the place next Saturday, have a nice shot of espresso and a chat with us!

Being an entrepreneuer is 24/7 thing. Although this course is worth two school courses (of 75), that means about 80 hours of work, it's feeling like a full time job. The great thing about it is that it's fun. At 10.00pm, while working with some nice Excel-tables or writing marketing e-mails, I'm not frustrated at all. Or maybe a litlle, but significantly less than if I were finishing of my Swedish essays. So, maybe entrepreneurship (what a difficult word) is my thing. If you haven't checked our websites yet, do it now!
