What's the Difference Between Coffee Beans

Do you wonder what's the difference between all those types of coffees offered at your cafe', roaster, or store?

You're curious to the taste, yet you don't want to buy a $15 a pound coffee and not like it?

Do you ask yourself if those tasting notes of chocolate, fruity, or caramel sound wonderful, but does the coffee really taste like that?

The Coffee Pragmatist coffee reviews will give you an idea of what to expect not only from a specific coffee but from each region where coffee is grown.

The reviews are not tasting notes, rather they're how a cup of coffee made from those beans tastes not only from one type of brewer but from several different types.

Brewing Coffee & Equipment

Ever wonder why there are so many different types of ways to brew coffee? Or, will different brewers change the taste of my coffee?

Yes they will, see how you can match brewing equipment to your coffee beans to make delicious coffee each morning!

Not only that, but you'll also get reviews and tutorials on how to each piece of equipment works. 

From there, you can make a more educated choice if that brewing method or piece of equipment will be right for you to purchase and use.

Who is the Coffee Pragmatist

Hi I'm Todd.

Growing up in rural upstate New York before the internet was a thing didn't give me very many coffee variety options.

But when I traveled to the west coast I was introduced to fresh ground coffee, french presses, pour-overs, and espresso machines.

The desire to learn more about coffee was always inside of me, but I never did anything about it.

Finally, I’ve decided to act on my coffee passion by creating this website where I will share what I learn about coffee and the methods used to brew the Nectar of the Morning Gods.

This website is my journey into the world of artisan and specialty coffees.

What makes speciality coffee so much fun are the different aroma’s and tastes that each batch provides and the fact that you can experiment with and test each coffee with different equipment and brewing techniques.

"Drinking the same old coffee day after day is like being in the movie Groundhog day.”

The goal, besides sharing knowledge, is to find coffee roasters around the country and share their stories, experiences, and their work with you. My plan is to negotiate discounts with the coffee roasters and share those discounts with you.

We can then discuss these coffee’s as a group through the comment sections and learn together how to brew them to our liking.
