I rarely write articles in response to phony holidays but given my fervor and respect for the drink that fuels the daily joy of millions of people, I wanted to provide some advice on how you can drink better coffee at home. But first, let’s start with an anecdote. A few years ago, I had a conversation with a respected wine journalist and Master of Wine that left me incredulous. Asked their thoughts on coffee and its parallels to wine, a nascent but timely topic, this industry luminary quipped, “The only thing I care about in my coffee is that it is scalding hot.” This writer might as well have told me their favorite beer in the world was Natural Light (which boasts an “awful” score of 45 on Beeradvocate .) How could a wine lover and educator, a connoisseur of flavor and devotee to complexity and origin, nonchalantly dismiss another comparably complex, fragile, and nuanced liquid gift … [Read more...] about To Drink Better Coffee, Treat It Like Wine

Five senior Koh Samui police officers have reportedly been transferred over two criminal cases on the island. Surat Thani provincial police chief, Sathit Phonphinit, signed the order to transfer the officers pending factual evidence in the two cases. The order was carried out on Wednesday, one day after it was signed. One of the criminal cases being investigated allegedly involves a Koh Samui police officer, who told an arrested Thai man’s wife that she could have sex with him (the police officer), in order to get her husband released.
