Beyond the bean.

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. That’s why here, you’ll find (almost) everything to do with us and our coffee. Things that are tasty. And well-made. From ecological design to inspiring people and their adventures. And, of course, their passion for coffee. Which brings us right back to where we started.

Good question

What is a good coffee worth?

Added value, market value, substantial value … “Value”? A term that has had a rather “broad” meaning since the ancient Greeks. Because it is used so often at the moment, we will try to clarify what it means using the example of a cup of coffee.

INTERNET OF SENSES

Really now? Virtual coffee?

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you didn’t have to rely on wordy, flowery descriptions of the taste of coffee, wine, spices, etc. on the internet, but could actually let the flavors melt in your mouth? The Internet of Senses is supposed to make this possible in the future.

GOOD TO KNOW

The best reasons for a coffee break.

“Do you have five minutes for coffee?” “Shall we discuss this over coffee?” “Let’s meet for coffee.” Coffee breaks are good for the team climate, for an informal exchange of information, for cohesion, for the social fabric. But there are many more reasons to take a break and have a coffee – apart from the indulgence. We’ve summarized the most important ones for you here (in case you ever have to convince someone of the benefits).

Family life

What’s going on in hotel mom?

There are the nest stools. And there are children who fledge early (to stay with the metaphor). But the fact that more and more mothers are leaving the house instead of children – that’s new (at least to me). A strange story from everyday editorial life at Mount Hagen. Just in time for the start of the semester and training.

MORNING COFFEE READING

Let’s talk about money. Part 2: Green investments.

Is it possible to do something for capital formation even on a small budget? And if so, is there a green way to do it? In other words: in an ecologically sensible and socially ethical way? It is possible, but not as easy as one might hope. That’s why we asked someone who should know: Hanna Hornberg, an expert in sustainability, impact investing, and alternative investments.
