A Cup of Joe with Customs Brew Bar

Statistics from 2013 place New Zealand as the 15th largest consumer of coffee in the world. If every man, woman, and child drank the stuff, we'd all be getting 0.93 cups of coffee per day. Thankfully, babies aren't sipping Americanos; my default setting is to cancel out their lack of contribution to our economy by chugging 2-4 cups of the liquid gold per day.



Despite mainlining copious amounts of the stuff in the WG offices, we don't really know the first thing about it. In order to learn the first thing (and hopefully many more things), we decided to engage the wisdom of somebody who actually spends hours per day making the stuff. Enter stage left, Mr Tim Norriss.


Tim is the Manager of Customs Brew Bar (Wellington, NZ), and I decided that I liked him when in the course of our conversation he conceded that, as a barista, he was for all intents and purposes a drug dealer. For more sage wisdom, and a step-by-step run-down on how little beans transform into the liquid in your ceramic mug, tune into the video above.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!

    With havin so much content and articles do
    you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my authorization. Do you know any
    ways to help stop content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Hi! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours take
    a lot of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of
    ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
    of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and
    am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard
    good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress
    content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
