The simple pour-over. It's one of the easiest methods of coffee brewing. If you need a single cup of coffee, it's also one the best cups of coffee you can make. The pour-over was my go-to method of making my morning cup for at least seven years. I had one of these ceramic pour-overs the whole time. It never broke and it's still in my cupboard.
"Farming is hard. Imagine spending all your money and time farming a product during the year. You have to pay for everything that goes into that out of your own pocket for one year. And you're poor. And then you won't get paid for that product until the following year. That's why I do this," Sergio admits.
While the Bonavita brewer cannot control all of the seven pillars listed, it does an excellent job of the pillars that it can control. Number 5 for example states "The correct contact time between the coffee and water". The brew basket on the Bonavita brewer is deep. This is important in that I feel, a lot of brewers have too shallow of a brew basket. This doesn't allow for the proper amount of coffee to be inserted into the brewer, thus not allowing the proper amount of contact time between coffee and water. So in this respect, I feel the Bonavita brewer does a great job with its deep brew basket.
Believe it or not, coffee has health benefits. A cup in the morning gets that frontal lobe firing, boosts memory and mood, and helps you keep your brain active, which is linked to a longer, healthier life. Plus coffee improves health of certain organs and reduces health risks.
Every year I try to visit Candy Cane Lane on Christmas Eve. It's just a nice time to visit as there are a lot of visitors on this day, and it's nice to feel that Holiday Cheer that comes with being with a lot of strangers during the holidays.

The sound of the coffee brewing, the rich smell filling the kitchen, the feel of your favorite mug. For true coffee lovers, morning coffee is more than a jolt of caffeine before you jet out the door. It’s a daily ritual that’s as individual as the person partaking in it.
I asked a few coffee aficionados to share their approach to morning coffee.
We recently received a question on how to store our coffee. I thought it'd be a great conversation to share as I know it's a common question people have about coffee. Here's the conversation:
Question: Hello, The delicious aroma of coffee is all around my kitchen! Thank you shipping the coffee so quickly. This is the first time I've had 3 fresh bags at one time, so am wondering what the best way is to store it?
Seven Market & Cafe sits almost directly across the street from a Puget Sound landmark, Candy Cane Lane Seattle located near the U-district. Candy Cane Lane Seattle grew out of a holiday decoration contest in the 1950's, sponsored by the Seattle Times. This little lane in Ravenna won that contest and has been decorating their street every holiday season since. Every house on the lane participates in this great tradition, selflessly investing time, money, and comfort in spreading the message of Peace, Love, and Acceptance to the city of Seattle.
