By Sarah Ferguson - Once upon a time, in a not-so-far-off land, there were two companies: Bosch and Porsche. Each was known for its production of superior automotive products, so they decided to join forces and create something the likes of which no one had ever seen before. It was……..a coffee maker?!

The world, including Whole Latte Love, was surprised by this result, yet intrigued. Could these two companies think outside the Boxster and revolutionize the world of coffee brewing?

Well, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but most will agree that the Bosch’s
Porsche Thermal Coffee Maker brews a great cup of coffee and as
expected ... Read More
"It is clear that convenience and simplicity were at the forefront of Bosch and Porsche’s minds when they designed this coffee maker ..."
By Sarah Ferguson - French presses, or press pots, are normally thought of as one of the oldest ways to prepare coffee, however, this is somewhat of a myth. The French press had been conceptualized in the 1800’s, but a fully functional model was not available to the coffee drinking public until the very early 1900’s, well after the vacuum pot was made popular. The largest reason for this delay was the lack of a filter that would eliminate a reasonable amount of coffee grounds from the final product.

And So It Begins .- It has recently become clear to me that for the past several years, I have been happily skipping in a field of coffee ignorance. I think that at one point I must’ve picked up the National Enquirer Coffee Edition, read it cover to cover, and accepted it as my coffee bible, because the more I learn about this stuff, the more I realize that my mental rolodex needs to be cleaned out and completely recreated. The first tabloid tale of coffee to expel: coffee from a can tastes the same as fresh ground.

Now, my contact with coffee grounds and beans is fairly limited. I will be the first (well, maybe the second) to admit that I normally drink the stuff you get from the supermarket in 2 lb buckets... Read More
