The world of coffee is big and we could spend hours talking about it. Nevertheless, pondering beans, roasting and the like isn’t enough for us.

And, of course, their passion for coffee. Which brings us right back to where we started.

New Year’s resolutions? Have fun with them!

How long do you think you’ll last? Why are almost 30% of all resolutions worth nothing and barely last longer than 2 weeks*? Is it because of the goals themselves? Is it the motivation? Is it self-discipline? We have the answers here.
