There are travel journals, dream journals, project journals and wine journals. Why not a coffee journal? At least that’s what Dave Shelden thinks. Founder of BS Brewing, a homebrewing and extreme food collective in Portland Oregon, Shelden wrote 33 Coffees, a coffee notebook with prompts on recording your coffee experience. There are grids and check boxes with places to comment on the origin, roaster, producer and flavor profiles of your favorite cup of Joe so that you can quickly recall that memorable espresso, latte or cappuccino moment.
I was happy to know that the notebook is printed with US grown soy-based inks on natural colored paper to camaflouge my coffee- stained pages. Surely I don’t drink that many cups of coffee.
