09-06-2011 Product Trend: Caffeine Foray

The project platform, Kickstarter introduced to the world a clever product called Coffee Joulies. They’re a food-safe, thermodynamic heat storage device that sits in your coffee, maintaining liquid heat for an extended period of time. Their coffee bean shape and polished stainless steel finish raises the bar for the design for its innovative aesthetic. It is clearly not just a gimmick. The project successfully raised its funding goal this month with 4818 backers supporting the product.

02-02-2011 Turning coffee into art

We’ve always thought of baristas as our favourite people to see in the morning, but now we can attach to them a new label: artists. Baristas all over the world are making our mornings sweeter by taking coffee art to a whole other level. Avid coffee drinkers would be used to simple swirls and squiggles, but some baristas are really showcasing their creative sides. We guarantee you will be impressed by how these baristas can craft such beautiful designs out of nothing but coffee and milk! We won’t tell if you sneak out to judge your local barista’s skills. If you want to amaze your next guests, why not sign up for a coffee art course?

08-06-2010 Keep Cup Keeps you Happy

Keep Cup knows all about its enemy, the disposable cup. It knows that our daily ritual of takeaway coffee in non-recyclable cups is harming the environment, particularly in arid regions like Australia where biodegradation can take up to 50 years. That’s why Keep Cup is a pretty little smug thing, as it’s the latest, cleverly designed trend sweeping our cafes. By reusing the Keep Cup each time you order coffee, you are helping the environment with small acts that can make a big difference. Plus you can customise each cup by marking your regular order on the tab. They come in a variety of different colours and the design has a handy tab that you can plug in the drinking hole to stop any spillages as you merrily walk along.

11-09-2008 Battle of the Espresso

For years coffee has been considered over tea as the savvier, sophisticated drink. But that’s all about to change. From the leaves of the South African shrub Rooibos comes Red Espresso, a tea that imitates coffee with delicious results. Rooibos tea is transformed when put in espresso and coffee appliances. The result is a much stronger taste, as well as a caffeine free, high in antioxidants beverage. Sweet with woody undertones and richly red in colour, Red Espresso has no additives, preservatives or colourants. The battle between coffee and tea is about to heat up!
