Once you go to proper coffee, you can’t go back. You cannot go back. – Hugh Laurie
My name is Bryan and welcome to The Coffee Maven. Like many, my first introduction to coffee was as a college student looking for late night pick-me-up. I grew up near Boston, MA and frequented the many Dunkin’ Donuts that litter the landscape. My appreciation for a cup of coffee during those days was directly related to its quantity of caffeine and indirectly related to its price.
Now a 30-something professional holding down a solid job, I’ve come to truly appreciate a great cup of coffee. Like anyone I have my preferences — smooth and rich, hold the sweetener — but above all I hold dear the satisfaction of brewing it myself.
My goal at The Coffee Maven is to explore the world of coffee with you. I’ll share tips and tricks, provide honest reviews of products, and introduce different coffee styles and blends around the world. I do all of this with the above quote in mind, because every time I have “the best cup of coffee of my life” I can’t wait to find the next best cup.
Thanks for visiting this site, and I hope you’ll join me in my pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee.
