In 1957, Jim Henson was approached by a Washington, D.C. coffee company to produce commercials for Wilkins Coffee The local stations only had ten seconds for station identification, so the Muppet commercials had to be lightning-fast—essentially, eight seconds for the commercial pitch and a two-second shot of the product.

Espresso machine technology has progressed significantly since Italian inventor Luigi Bezzera, fondly known as the Steve Wozniak (the genius behind apple computers) of espresso, invented his single-shot espresso machine in the early part of the 20th century.

Difference latte and macchiato

The other day, I had some friends over for coffee. I had forgotten they were stopping by, and my nearly empty pantry had only two options left: Tassimo Latte and Tassimo Caramel Latte Macchiato. Luckily, these were among my friends’ favorite drinks. Unsurprisingly, they cleaned me out of both beverages. When it came time for my last guest to pick her drink, she couldn’t…

Dripping coffee

The ritual of the pour over is like a meditation: There’s no machine in your way, no flashing green lights, no electric power cords. Just you and a few simple tools. The final cup is reminiscent of one from a drip coffeemaker, but noticeably more delicate and complex.

Differences between coffee drinks

The very first time I got a latte, I had no idea what I was ordering. There was just a special on caramel lattes, it sounded good, and so I figured, “Why not?” Despite the nonchalant order, the first taste began a lifelong affair with this comforting and creamy coffee beverage (as well as spending $20.00 on a steam wand to make them at home). Since then, I have been…
