It’s really called “Important People Drinking Coffee“, but with personalities such as Jesus and George Washington, “boss” is such an appropriate term, don’t you think? Artist Steven Weinberg dabbled with watercolors and portrayed important people drinking coffee, and you’ve got to hand it to him – they may not be as dignified as some may [...]
Drinking coffee is a pleasure for some. For others, it is a necessity. Adding a little fun to your coffee is always a welcome thing, though, especially if you’re talking about coffee art that features some of your favorite things. For sure, you’ve seen your share of awesome coffee art. You’ve probably even held off [...]
Battlestar Galactica may be long over, but it’s still near and dear to our geeky hearts. Here’s how you can remember the glory days while feeding your need for caffeine at the same time.
Two weeks ago I wrote about 15 Things you should know about caffeine. In the comments section a reader explained why decaf coffee does not taste as good as regular coffee. I drink my coffee at three places, Starbucks very once in a while, the bagel shop and the sandwich shop. Their decaf coffee varies [...]

Give me a professionally trained barista or, if I’m at home, a small but perfectly formed coffee machine and I’m set. Having said that, this concept coffee machine does [...]
I guess someone was going to put this kind of chart together one day, and Information is Beautiful has found this collaboration by Starbucks and Calorie Counter.
Here’s one for the graphic designers among you — those of you who both know and use Pantone colors. This mug set is available in Pantone colors 464 C, 1395 C, 175 C AND 1545 C. Of course, your local coffee bar is going to be more than happy to service your request for coffee [...]
I think it’s fair to say that we like our coffee makers here at Forever Geek – after all, they serve up the brew as and when we need caffeine. That is, apart from the concept ones which, by nature, don’t exist yet. Not in production, at least. Take this one designed by Kamil Kurka [...]
