WHO AM I?
Welcome fellow coffee lovers! My name is Evan and I’m a US Navy Veteran Air Traffic Controller, with 10-proud-years of service under my belt. I love coffee as you can see by this point. Some of my hobbies include music production, photography, learning, exploring, trying new coffee! and snowboarding when the snow is there… I am a creative at heart with the morals and ethics of military member. During my rapid transformation from skateboarding adolescent to a hardworking Sailor, I discovered the power behind coffee. Once I realized it could increase my productivity when my energy was running low I was hooked! Well its been 13 years since that moment and my excitement for coffee still continues to grow!
WHY RATE COFFEE?
When I joined the Navy I did not think twice about coffee. It was not a part of my everyday vocabulary. I might have gotten one of those french vanilla coffee drinks from the gas station as a kid but it wasn’t until I entered the Navy that I realized the power of coffee and why adults love it! The reason adults love coffee is productivity! We all need to be productive and sometimes our bodies don’t want to sync up with our mind! We run low on energy and need a boost!
That is how it starts! Now from here we may just drink Folger’s for years because thats what our work has… Or the new Keurig machine that everyone pitched in to buy for the office… (That was me). My point is, some people don’t care to explore the unknown. They are simple and only require an item for its functionality (Folger’s, Starbucks). Other people may have tried Folger’s, then Starbucks, then Keurig, then a coffee shop around the corner! With each new taste is a new flavor… Maybe you discover that there are sweet coffees and you love it! You know you cannot goto McDonalds or even Starbucks really and get a good cup of sweet coffee! It is a sin.
But coffee is a HUGE market!
So much competition exists within coffee and even though its just convenient to go down the street to get the local cup of coffee, there are many people out there who love to try new brands! New varietys from specific regions. New blends! That competition is amazing because it creates variance! We can explore different roasting preferences! Different flavors and infusions??! Each place that roasts their branded coffee is able to manipulate their process to change the flavor of the bean!
So how would life be if you could only try the coffee within your town? To me it is the same as living in one town your whole life (not that their is a problem with that, I am a military man remember?) But there is so much world to see! Why stay in one place? At least travel! We can maybe compromise there! But exploring allows us to experience new things, EVEN coffee!
Online coffee exploring is lame though!!! There is no character or charm to it!! (There is no business to customer interaction…)
You can buy coffee from many websites. The problem is, there are none that tell you how that coffee tastes. No one is trying them! Buying coffee online is having faith with zero understanding and my goal is to bring
a community to the internet, where people can comment on brands and varieties as well as view my own reviews on coffees and make a sound investment on their next purchase! This helps small coffee shops expand their clients and it makes US (you and I) the consumers, HAPPY! We get to put our faith in something and explore our desire further than we ever could before! So here, we rate coffee to bring you the unknown and allow coffee lovers to explore new brands you may have never known about before visiting this site.
WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF RATING COFFEE FOR PEOPLE?
Fact: Coffee is expensive.
Fact: No one likes throwing away money.
Fact: Some coffee just isn’t good.
Fact: There is nothing worse than buying a bag of coffee that is nothing like it is advertised.
Here, I will personally review coffees and list things in layman terms. I’m no snob but I understand the coffee game well enough to give an elementary explanation alongside a somewhat more detailed sophisticated one as well. This will be a great way to share distant coffee shops with far away coffee lovers. It has the potential to expand several of the brands that we each enjoy and wish to support.
