Weekly Download 14.21

download-158006_640Here’s a recap of news and notes from around the Web that caught my attention over the past week or so. Today’s theme is coffee.

I have a coffee problem. This is not news for those who know me. And, apparently, I’m on the  “snootier side” of the coffee drinker spectrum since I prefer single-origin beans. But here is a surprise: according to America’s coffee cup is half full, today’s consumption is less than half of what it was in the mid-1940s.

Much to my delight there is a well-known coffee supply and home roasting business right here in Middleton. Burman Coffee Traders modesty describes their business by saying “Coffee is our passion.” Ditto.

Who are these people who live among us? I Am Not a Coffee Drinker fails to answer a fundamental question: Why not?
