I am first to admit that I am somewhat of a coffee snob and for that I definitely blame the amazing coffee culture in New York and Brooklyn. You are surrounded by so many independent shops that it makes it easy to avoid the inevitable chain. The latest issue of ROSE & IVY Journal was a compilation of the finer things in life like quality coffee, chocolate and olive oil - a few of my favorite things, so I was happy to include and learn more about each. I learned about the fascinating process of tasting coffee and what warrants a good cup from Counter Culture Coffee and Toby's Estate Coffee. For more tips on how to prepare coffee or to learn how to taste them, discover 'The Coffee Ritual' here.
