The artisan coffee culture is commonly associated with snobbery and macbook pros. Snobeanery is a play on this, allowing you the chance to taste fantastic coffee without the attached stigma. I am a simple coffee fanatic who is searching the world for the best cup of coffee/espresso, while exploring various home-brew techniques as well. The goal of this project is to provide everyone with the opportunity to experience a great cup of coffee without feeling the need to resort to their Starbucks "crutch". Follow me as I tour various cities around the world, meeting different baristas and roasters along the way. I will be blogging about my experiences in the hopes you too can share in the coffee experience.
As a neuroscience graduate student I have been fascinated with caffeine’s effect on the body. My research has taken me to some pretty amazing cafes, allowing me to pursue my ever growing coffee passion. The smell of freshly roasted and the taste of freshly ground beans is what keeps me exploring the world for that "perfect" cup.
