Welcome to Reddit's coffee community.
We're equal parts a passionate horde of amiable amateurs and the back room lounge of the coffee industry. To us, the world of coffee is more complex than just a tasty caffeinated beverage to get you going. This is a place to talk about the farms, the beans, the baristas, the roasters, the industry, the brewing gear & techniques. It's a place to ask questions about how to make your daily cup just a little bit better. Its a place to learn, share, and make new friends. Welcome to /r/coffee!
Rules. Please read these.
These lay out our our expectations for participants, but also the values and rationales behind them. In short, be nice, respect this community and its members, don't try to sell or promote stuff, and be aware comments and submissions are both curated content within this space.
We also offer /r/cafe as our more casual & fun sister community. If /r/coffee is dry and stodgy and pretentious, /r/cafe is our break from that.
...Just in case you're more into pictures of etched or free-pour latte art or that oh-so-beautiful, monstrous Slayer espresso machine pouring a luscious shot through a bottomless portafilter. Or maybe you heard a great coffee joke, bought an awesome new coffee mug or found a mysterious can of crazy looking foreign coffee in your grandfather's basement.
For non-informative or non-depthy-discussion "coffee culture" posts, please check out /r/cafe. It's our fun place.
