Review by Debbie Mazo


You'd have to be living on another planet not to have noticed the coffee craze that has conquered the world. From drive-through espresso stands to lattés at your local movie theatre, baristas can be found everywhere ready to pour your daily fix of caffeine. If you just can't get enough of the stuff, check out—your one stop coffee site on the Internet. Coffee drinking can be traced as far back as the ninth century to the Mufti people of Aden. Legend has it that coffee made its way from Ethiopia to Yemen by way of traveling merchants who crossed the Gulf of Aden. In the Bean section, find out about the origins of coffee and more, including bean types and brewing methods. From the French press to the drip method, you'll learn all you need to know to rival the best coffee houses.

If you're on the road and wondering where you're going to line up your next mocha java, check out the Directory. From Antigua to the Virgin Islands, you'll find a list of favorite coffee houses, coffee shops, and cyber cafés across the globe complete with street addresses. Of course, if you have a favorite java hut, you're invited to add a listing.

Coffee fanatics always love to share brewing secrets so join the Coffee Community where you can speak up and discuss topics of interest with other coffee drinkers on the Web. In the Community, you can also browse over 100 recipes featuring, you guessed it, coffee as a main ingredient. For hot, sultry days, try a cold beverage like Coffee Ice Punch or Mandarin Chocolate Coffee Float. Or, add some beans to your favorite dessert like Brazilian Coffee Bananas or Mocha Shortbread Cookies.

Ecommerce has finally arrived in the world of coffee. In the site's eCoffeeShop, you can do all of your coffee shopping online. From the best brews for making your coffee to the best coffee mugs for sipping it in, the eCoffeeShop stocks over 175 products for you to choose from. Whether you like it dark and bitter or mellow and rich, stop by and linger over your cuppa as long as you like.
