Koffee Korner  

Review by Debbie Mazo


Koffee Korner 
With more than 400 billion cups consumed each year, coffee is a world commodity that is second only to oil. From Singapore to Saudi Arabia, coffee and its variations can be found in every corner of the world. For an inside look at today's coffee society, check out the java at Koffee Korner.

Maintained by coffee aficionado, Miku B. Sippy, Koffee Korner is an entertaining reference site dedicated to the joys of this ancient drink. Check out Koffee History, and you'll discover that coffee has been a daily fix for thousands of years. From the discovery of coffee berries by Ethiopian goat herders to the cultivation of coffee in Arabia to the opening of the first coffeehouses in Europe, the history of coffee is as rich as its taste.

Koffee KornerCoffee enthusiasts around the world swear by their own style of coffee preparation. Koffee Kulture serves up country-specific coffee with representation from Turkey, Mexico, Malaysia, and Laos. Browse through this section and you'll find out about the intricacies of Turkish coffee, including the wide variety of beautifully decorated equipment used to roast, grind, prepare, and serve it. Or, experience Black Laos Coffee (Cafe Lao Dam) served with condensed milk, Laotian style.

Along with the invasion of coffee bars in your local neighborhood, coffee is now making its way to every dish on the menu. From main courses to desserts, coffee is an ingredient guaranteed to add a unique taste and texture to just about any recipe. For an innovative entrée, sample the Fusilli with Coffee Ragout stirred up with three fluid ounces of coffee (not too strong or too weak). Or, sample a dessert of Coffee Bread Pudding flavored with large raisins, orange peel, Tia Maria, and spices.

If you still can't get enough of that savory brew, stop by Koffee Talk where you can learn all about the language of coffee. Not only will you discover how to brew a perfect cup of coffee, you'll be able to speak Javanese like a real barista.
