So much to read... so little time. I wish I could go on vacation for a year and read all of these articles while drinking coffee and relaxing!

You know what's good? Cuban coffee... I have a french press that I make coffee with every morning. I would consider myself a fresh press fiend. I've also had a cuban coffee maker sitting in my cupboard for ages, along with a 'brick' of cuban coffee.

Well, I ran out of beans for my french press, which never happens, and I was like fuck it, I guess I'll have to see what this cuban coffee is about.

Man... is it good. It has a special kind of way to make it using this odd looking pot that is made of metal and you set it directly on the stove, then the water pressure boils up through the bottom of your coffee and drips down a spout into the cup.

It's very strong, and very sweet. And also very thick, even after I add water to it.

Give it a shot. Pun intended

Haha, that sounds great! I'll have to order a cup next time im up in SF.

One of the biggest bottlenecks i've ran into at home is the quality of water... tapwater just ruins any good coffee.

Have you tried using the chemex brewers? I was thinking about picking up one of those setups and the blue bottle coffee book (they have killer coffee too!):

I loved this site. I'm just learning HTML and one of the most frustrating questions has been WHY. Why is declaring a DOCTYPE necessary, why is embedding video so difficult, why, why, why. This site gives a thorough and more importantly - interesting - history of HTML, why certain elements are necessary and what HTML5 introduces into the mix. I would completely recommend this to a beginner trying to wrap their mind around front-end development.

That's good news! :) If you recommend it that highly I shall add it to the wiki.
