My name is Marc Wortman and I love coffee. I love coffee so much that I've invested a lot of time into understanding what makes a good cup of coffee. This passion for coffee led me straight into research. It started with simple Google searches like "how to make good coffee", and led into much denser material, including expert books written by the greats on this subject. I was well on my way to becoming an expert myself. The research suggested it's really not that difficult, and there are small steps that anybody can take that make big differences. I started to build this website to capture this information so that the average person could see how easily they could do it themselves. A little bit of knowledge can lead to a lot more, so I hoped a website would put me in touch with even more expertise on the subject. Over the last little while, I've become a bit of a coffee snob despite my best efforts. After years of drinking it the same way, I've even eased myself out of cream and sugar so that I can properly enjoy a good coffee, but you'll see over the website how I defend those who add these to their coffee. In fact, the way I make sure I never turn into a real coffee snob is by supporting any steps people take to flavor their coffee to taste. Coffee, after all, is the most popular beverage in the world and whatever people need to do to enjoy it the most is their business. I'm happy to know that you're making a better cup of coffee after visiting the site. Any money made from this website has been reinvested into my personal coffee life, the product of which is on this website so that you can learn what I'm learning. Together, we're all making better coffee at home. Coffee lovers, feel free to contact me with any questions you have about making good coffee. Coffee roasters, feel free to send me coffee! I am happy to write about your company and coffee to help get the word out.
